with Johnny Segalla in Harvey the Great

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


In this thriller I play Violet, a French bank robber. I try to take advantage of Harvey's ineptitude but unfortunately I pay for it in the end.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of Kristen Sargent Gorman can we find in Violet?


What I found connected me most to the character of Violet was her accent. Choosing to have Violet be from France opened her up to me. I had done another character who was from France, so when this idea was brought up it clicked for me. I felt that decision allowed me to find the edgier, sexier side of Violet. I think there is always a piece of yourself in every character. I think in this character it was finding how to make her actions believable.


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


I videotaped an audition. To be honest I originally submitted for the character of Cheneault and Jesse asked me to audition for Violet. I was thrilled because I was intrigued by her mysterious storyline.


To what extent can you identify with Harvey the Great's brand of humour?


I was not as familiar with this brand of humor but found it freeing. There was a lot of room to play with the character because of quirkiness of the humor.


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


Jesse is a wonderful director to collaborate with. He has a strong vision but is open to suggestions. It was very professional set but there was a lot fun to be had as well.


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!


Jesse created a safe yet explorative atmosphere on set. There was lots of room to play with our characters, but the structure was also there to keep the pace going and make sure we did not loose sight of the story we were telling. One day one of the actors showed up in a Batman suit. There was a lot of laughs on this set.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I have been working on Newport RI The Series. The series is about the people of Newport inspired by a prolific painter's paintings. Each episode is about a painting he created, from the firefighter to the race car driver to the cobbler.


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


My family moved to NYC for my freshman year of high school. Having grown up in Rhode Island I was horrified at the lack of grass. Apparently I told my parents in the supermarket that they ruined my life. Of course I have no memory of this. So in an attempt to make me fall in love with the city I started taking acting classes at the Lynette Sheldon Actor's Studio. She opened my eyes to the craft of acting and taught me so much about myself that I didn't even know. It was exciting, intimidating, and challenging. The other actors in this studio were working and older than me, which opened my eyes to more than I even realized at the time. It made me fall in love with storytelling and all NYC had to offer.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Harvey the Great?


I have been working on a bunch of independent films and web series that have been shot in the northeast. I seem to play a lot of characters who die, however I have only been in one actual horror film. There are lots of opportunities to work with talented filmmakers in this area.


Besides making movies, you have also done your share of stage acting - now what can you tell us about Kristen Sargent Gorman, the stage actress, and how does performing live on stage compare to acting in front of a camera? And which do you prefer, actually?


There is nothing like performing live theater. The energy and the rush is incredible. Making people laugh is a great feeling. I tend to go after comedy roles in theater and all genres in film. I enjoy working in film because the camera catches every small detail. In theater you are forced to be bigger.


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


I would say my strength is that I am not acting. I try to fully understand who the character is so I completely become them for the role.

Meryl Streep is an incredible actress who has transcended. Right now Emma Stone is doing some incredible work. I have loved Reece Witherspoon since Election. She has played many different characters, which is a challenge in this business to not get typecast.


Your favourite movies?


Right now my favorite movie is the last movie I have seen which is Black Mass. Johnny Depp's performance is captivating.


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


The first thing that came to mind was Cold Mountain, but that could have been because I was brought to see it on Christmas. Not exactly the type of movie that brings good cheer on a holiday which always needs some warming up.
