Your upcoming movie House of Spirits - in a few words, what is it
about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?
I donít want to give too much away. Letís just say that I play a
neighbor who borrows sugar, and should have never returned bringing them
What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and
how much of Krystal Stevenson can we find in Cinthia, actually?
had to be more bubbly and cheerful than usual lol. I found Cinthia to be
that way in my head. Baking cookies and borrowing sugar from the
neighbors. So I brought that side of me out.
did you get involved with the project in the first place, and with House of Spirits
being a horror movie, is that a genre at all dear to you?
has always been a favorite of mine. My best friend would stay the night
and we would watch USA Up All Night! All the 80ís horror movies! I
started watching horror at a young age and I never really got scared. I
was more just into it, and once I found out that itís actually actors
doing a job, then I knew I wanted to do it! Since Iíve done a few B-horror movies in the past, I had certain friends that either
were in the
movie or knew the director and contacted me about it.
can you tell us about your director Reuben Rox, and what was your
Very down to earth and made sure I was
good at all times. If I felt like I needed to retake the scene again, he
had no problem with it. I kept messing up on one scene and he just kept
telling me ďitís all goodĒ. We worked very well together and I hope
we get to work together again in the future!
Do talk about the shoot as such, and
the on-set atmosphere!
House of Spirits
It was great! Nice small
rented house and not too far of a drive from where I live. I had a hard
time not laughing at Jade LaFont [Jade
Michael LaFont interview - click here], because of his faces and expressions
during takes. I even stayed after I was done, and got to watch an awesome
gory scene that Tony Brown [Tony
Brown interview - click here] did great in! I loved the scene where I got to
scream in! Reuben Rox had a fan blowing on my hair so that scene is going
to be great! My character was supposed to bake cookies but the boys got
hungry the day before. So no one knows of my magical oreo cookies in a cut
out ice cream tub. Hey, you work with what you have lol!
Any future projects you'd
like to share?
Not really at the moment. I am up for any as
always. I did play a nonspeaking role in a local movie thatís not B-horror. Itís called
Meanwhile in Mississippi. I canít talk much
about it, but I just play a jogger sitting in a cafť.
What got you into acting to begin with,
and did you receive any formal training on the subject?
no training except for I guess I grew up talking to myself and acting out
scenes lol. Once I knew movies were just acting I knew I wanted to do
that! Itís fun to play someone else, and definitely love getting to
scream and get bloody! I started out modeling and that led to acting.
can you tell us about your filmwork prior to House of Spirits?
I have been in a few local B-horror movies. Certain ones like Psycho Santa,
Dead Clowns, Aberrations, Cadaver
Bay, and more.
How would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of
your techniques to bring your characters to life?
I think I
am fun to work with. I have a great sense of humor and can be sarcastic. I
just love doing it. Since I usually do it for free for fun, I just canít
travel too far. Which sucks cause I would love to do more, but a lot are
not close enough to where I live. With my characters, I try and think of
how they would act. In Psycho Santa I was the older sister, so I brought
out more of my sarcastic side. In House of Spirits, I brought out my more
bubbly side. Usually, the directors are good with my take on it. I also
will ask what they are going for as it is their character that they have
pictured in their mind. They usually let me roll with it though and love
it! Which I love!
(and indeed actors) who inspire you?
Ohhhh a lot lol!
Robert Englund [Robert Englund
