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


The Amityville Legacy tells the story of a family get-together to celebrate a father's 50th birthday. The father is gifted an antique toy monkey which just so happens to have been present during the DeFeo murders at the original Amityville house. The toy monkey soon possesses the father and all hell breaks loose. The film, in my opinion, is very much in tune with the latter day Amityville films such as Amityville: The Evil Escapes, Amityville: It's About Time, Amityville: A New Generation and Amityville Dollhouse. I also feel that it draws upon Amityville 2: The Possession since it tells the tale of a family that has deep rooted issues and hints around the taboo topic of incest (though hallucinatory in our film). In the film, I play the boyfriend of Tony Janson (played by my actual fiance Tony Brown [Tony Brown interview - click here]). My character is a nice guy who is there to support his boyfriend, who has never brought a partner over to meet his family.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


Dustin Ferguson [Dustin Ferguson interview - click here] approached Tony and me about being in a film of his. When we learned that it would be an Amityville  film, there was no hesitation in our decision to do the film. I had been a fan of Dustin's work since his Black Tree Forest trilogy and always wanted to work on one of his productions.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Jade can we actually find in Jade?


I didn't draw upon much to bring my character to life, honestly. I am not a method actor. I go with the flow and just try my best to hit my marks and memorize my dialog. My biggest challenge when shooting a movie is to not be so “big” in my performance. I trained in theatre in which you are supposed to project to the very back of the auditorium. In film, you have to bring it down a few notches. I am essentially playing myself in the film, however, in real life, I am not as “happy-go-lucky” as my actual character. I definitely have a little bit more of an attitude than The Amityville Legacy's Jade.


In The Amityville Legacy you actually play the boyfriend of your real life fiancé Tony Brown [Tony Brown interview - click here] - so how did that influence your performance (if at all)? And while we're at it, how did the two of you first meet even?


Jade with Tony Brown and Schuylar Craig

Obviously, playing opposite of your fiancé is awesome for onscreen chemistry. This was the biggest influence on that aspect of my acting in the film—the chemistry was there and hopefully audiences will notice that. Strangely enough, Tony and I met on a film set back in 2008. We were both extras in the New Orleans-shot Night of the Demons remake. After that, we became close friends for a couple of years due to our obsession with the horror genre and eventually started dating at the end of 2010.


What can you tell us about your directors Dustin Ferguson [Dustin Ferguson interview - click here] and Mike Johnson, and what was your collaboration with them like?


I enjoyed working with both directors very much. Tony and my shoot was very fast, and we were under time constraints with our scenes in the film (Tony and I shot on the the film for 3 or 4 days total since we were not locals). They were open to suggestions and very accommodating to Tony and me. Dustin and Mike's approaches to directing were different. Dustin shoots fast. Mike seemed to take more time. However, the combination of having two directors, in my opinion, benefited the film. The director of photography, Mark, was also vital with giving the film a very polished look for being shot on a low budget.


What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


The shooting was fast for Tony and me since we were there for a limited number of days. The on-set atmosphere was very positive and everyone got along great. Unfortunately, I became very sick on my second day of shooting so I tried to stay away from the other cast members in order for them not to catch what Tony and I labeled The Amityville Infection, lol.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


The only future project that I am currently cast in is Reuben Rox's Lurking Evil. I will be acting alongside Tony again.


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


The first taste of acting I received was in a short student film called The Road Less Travelled. After that, I took theatre acting classes in high school and college. As for film acting, I have received no formal training.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to The Amityville Legacy?


Besides the short film that I mentioned in the above answer, I have been in the horror films Wolfika, Torment, The Inherited, Indestructible, Silent Vengeance, Zydeco, Evil Deeds: Full Circle, Final Curtain Part 14: The Seance, The Slayer and Shelter in Place. Additionally, I have done voice-over work on Evil on Queen Street 2: Domination, Evil Deeds 2 and Evil Deeds 3. I have done extra work on the Night of the Demons remake, SyFy Channel's Wolvesbayne and The Expendables.


Going through your filmography, one can't help but notice that most of your movies are of the horror variety - a genre at all dear to you, and why (not)?


I have been obsessed with the horror genre ever since I was a child. It is just a genre that I have always loved, and it has been a pleasure being able to be involved in genre films.


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


I do not know how to describe myself as an actor. I take each role I'm given seriously and just try to give the best performance that I possibly can. I am my own worst critic and sometimes cringe at seeing myself on camera. I am slowly getting over that... slowly lol. I do not have any special techniques that I use to bring my characters to life. As I mentioned, I am not a method actor. I just make sure I have my lines memorized, hit my marks, and take direction from my director.


Jade with Lynn Lowry

Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?


I wouldn't say any actors or actresses really inspire me. I do have great respect for character actors such as Jay Richardson, Eric Roberts, and the late Christopher George. Actresses that I have great respect for are Tiffany Shepis [Tiffany Shepis interview - click here], Lynn Lowry, Barbara Crampton, Maria Ford, Sissy Spacek, Catriona MacColl, Nancy Allen, Asia Argento, the late Marilyn Burns, Betsy Russell, Debbie Rochon [Debbie Rochon interview - click here], Catherine Hickland, Laura Gemser [Laura Gemser bio - click here], Jessica Morris, and the holy scream queen trinity - Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, and Michelle Bauer.


Your favourite movies?


My favorite movies would have to be the Massacre series of films produced by Roger Corman [Roger Corman bio - click here]. This includes the Slumber Party Massacre series, the Sorority House Massacre series, and the Cheerleader Massacre series. I am a huge fan of early 80s slasher films such as Friday the 13th (1-5), The Dorm that Dripped Blood, Hell Night, Satan's Blade, To All a Good Night, and so on. I really enjoy Italian productions, such as The City of the Living Dead, The Beyond, Zombi 2, Athropophagus, Absurd, Ghosthouse, Stage Fright and Burial Ground.

I definitely would love to be in another Dustin Ferguson production one day, and, hopefully I am able to work with Steve Sessions again in the near future. Thank you for the interview, and I hope to continue acting in the horror genre.


Thanks for the interview!
