Your new movie Blood Soaked - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Blood Soaked is a fast-paced gore fest that follows a college freshman as she navigates her way through a blossoming lesbian relationship, a horrifying abduction, humiliation, and torture at the hands of two bloodthirsty, Nazi sisters bent on bringing about the Fourth Reich. Also? Zombies!

I played Piper, the cavity sweet, and just a little dense, good girl.

 

To what extent did you identify with the slightly nerdy Piper, and what did you draw upon to bring her to life?

 

Piper sees the good in others constantly, even if that makes her kind of oblivious to real danger. I like to think that I bring that level of positivity into my life, and into the lives of the people I love. I donít think Iím as naÔve as Piper. I havenít put anybody in danger yet, so thereís that.

 


To what extent could you identify with the film's horror theme?

 

Hate is a terrifying weapon, and can manifest in devastating ways. You donít need to look much farther than your local newspaper to see that. So, Nazi zombies may seem a little extreme, but hate is extreme, and scary.

 

How did you get hooked up with the project in the first place? And honestly, when you heard what it was about, what were your immediate reactions?

 

An audition opportunity was posted for the film online, and I sent in my headshot with fingers crossed. When I got the call from Peter Grendle [Peter Grendle interview - click here], and heard the synopsis, I was ready to go in with guns blazing. It just sounded like bloody, dirty, spooky fun.

 

What can you tell us about your director Peter Grendle [Peter Grendle interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

Peter has this amazing ability to bring unity to the set. He wears a dozen different hats at any given time, and maintains a calm that is out of this world. Peter had a very distinct vision about what he wanted the film to be, so there was just a lot of trust and faith in what was happening, and what he was asking us to do.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such for a bit, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

We were shooting on a shotgun schedule and a shoestring budget in brutal conditions, and it was one of the most positive experiences I have ever had in my life. Despite the heat, the cactus needles, the fire ants, and several ďOh, s*$%!Ē moments, we laughed a lot. A LOT. I donít think a single shoot went by where we all werenít cracking each other up off camera, or just enjoying each otherís company. Iíve made friendships that will last for the rest of my life.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I had an opportunity to work with Scary Cow Productions in San Francisco on a short film called Flow, and hope to work with Red Letter Cinema again!

 

What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?

 

I stumbled into it quite accidentally, and ended up studying it seriously and getting a BA in Acting, as well as a few other art related degrees. In all honesty, I just wanted to make movies with my friends, and I got to do that after all!

 

What can you tell us about your acting experiences prior to Blood Soaked?

 

Iíve done a lot of theatre, and a few short films here and there. One of the reasons Blood Soaked was so desirable to me was the link between it and a stage production I had done called A Night at the Grand Guignol, directed by JC WilliamsÖ which was basically grindhouse cinema on the stage. That production changed everything for me as an actress. It was so physically and emotionally demanding, which was so refreshing, and made me appreciate how much terror you can bring to an audience with a limited budget and a brilliant director.

 

How would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?

 

I like to approach my character as honestly as possible, and music is a huge way for me to connect all the dots. Especially shooting this movie, where everything was happening so quickly. A three minute song was about as much time as I had to provide enough emotional weight to get me where I needed to be.

Regina Hall is one of the funniest actresses Iíve ever seen, and Iíd trade my left kidney to meet Rachel Weisz. I swoon for Patrick Stewart. I think theyíre all really talented.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Tombstone by George P. Cosmatos, Agora by Alejandro Amenabar. and Disneyís Beauty and the Beast. You can judge me all you want for that last one, but Iíll go to every live action sing-a-long showing of that movie until I die.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

 

If I donít love a film, I just stop watching it. There are so many amazing movies out there, why waste your time on something you donít like?

Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

Iíd just like to say thank you to all the people who have believed in our movie!  A huge thanks to Red Letter Cinema, and of course, to Search My Trash! Thank you for this awesome opportunity to brag on some of the most talented people I know!

 

Thanks for the interview!
