First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us who don't already know you?

 

Hi, My name is Lindy Pieri. I live in South Norfolk with my husband, dog, cat and rabbit!

 

What got you into acting in the first place, and what can you tell us about your training as an actress?

 

I trained as a teacher so did drama as part of my curriculum studies and then somehow ended up joining a Theatre Skills course when I went to enquire about classes for my daughter! This was several years ago but having retired from full time work I have recently attended classes in Physical Theatre, Mask, Puppetry and Acting for Film, all of which I really enjoyed and gained a lot from.

 

Do you still remember your first time in front of a movie/TV camera, and what was that experience like?

 

My first time was just over a year ago. My husband acts locally and was asked to be in a local film. I went with him and we ended up being the parents of the bridegroom and doing 2 days on set. I loved being part of it all and made friends who suggested where I could look for other opportunities.

 

Damage

Please do talk about some movies you have worked on, and what made those experiences special?

 

My first film Damage directed by Kris Smith is memorable for being my first and it was set in the 1960’s, so it was a new experience to have my hair and make-up done in the style of the era. 

My second experience was for the promo for Hellraiser. This was great fun and totally different from anything I had done before as well as my first time in a studio with all the equipment, lots of cameras, lights, etc. I also got to say hello to Pinhead!

 

Besides films, you have also done quite a bit of theatre, right? So how does performing on stage compare to acting in front of a camera, and which do you prefer, actually?

 

I recently took part in some Immersive Theatre productions with Future Cinema and Secret Cinema. These were great fun as they involved staying in character but working closely with the audience and being ready to improvise when necessary. I especially enjoyed Casablanca as it was set in the 1940’s and I love the make-up and costume of that era too! I recently did a workshop on acting for screen and was told that my face was too expressive and that for film everything has to be smaller whereas for stage it has to be bigger and louder for the audience to see and hear. I like film in that there is the possibility of a second chance if need be but in stage you have the audience there... hmmm, I like both in different ways!

 

Alice Cooper's Night of Fear  

I think there isn't a soul who reads this who wouldn't be mad at me if I didn't ask you about your experiences on Alice Cooper's Night of Fear - so yeah, please take it from here!

 

Being a part of Alice Cooper’s Night of Fear last year at Wembley Arena was an amazing experience. Just being backstage with all the walkabout performers and zombies was great fun. It was on a ‘medical’ theme so I was dressed in a hospital gown and attached to a medical drip with a zombie friend. We worked outside and in the foyer scaring people and staying in zombie character! We got a lovely surprise when we were led into the arena and then backstage where Alice arrived for a photo-shoot! I was standing next to him and holding his arm! We even had a little chat! On the way out myself and friends Melanie and Lisa got lost finding the way out. We unwittingly ended up in the lift with the lead guitarist Ryan Roxie who took us as his guests to the after-show party! A photo of the 3 of us had been posted by Alice Cooper on Twitter earlier so perhaps he recognised us!

 

Going through your resume, one can't but notice you seem to be cast as a zombie uncharacteristically often - any explanation for this (and I do hope this doesn't come across as rude)?

 

Ha ha! My husband says it is because I am pale and unhealthy looking! I have been a bit typecast and am looking at other genres too! I think it is because the first shoots I did were in that genre and having made friends I was asked to do other similar things. It is amazing how often I meet up with people I have already met on a different set. It is a small worldI I love SFX make-up (my daughter is a make-up artist!) so they know I will sit and have myself turned into anything!

 

Besides being an actress, you are also a trained puppeteer, right? So do talk about that talent of yours - and how does it compare to acting?

 

I did a City and Guilds course in Puppetry and Performance at Norwich Puppet Theatre, followed by the Theatre’s own Advanced Puppetry Course where I completed the course with a 20 minute puppet performance of The Tempest. I have always liked puppets and during the course we had to make all our own puppets so in making them the character of the puppet slowly comes to life and you have a relationship with the puppet when you perform. It is different in that it is the puppet who is the character performing and not yourself. We are lucky to live so close to a Puppet Theatre and puppetry is an art form that is generally thought of as for children in this country but I have seen some amazing shows that were presented to adult audiences so keep a look out and if you have never been to one, try to get to see an adult puppet performance!

 

Any future projects (in whatever field) you'd like to share?

 

I am currently taking a distance learning course in Special Effects Make-up which I am really enjoying. It is much harder than it looks so I take my hat off to all the brilliant make-up artists I have met! I recently auditioned for a role in a 1920‘s Black and White Silent Film, so I have my fingers crossed for that - wish me luck!

 

Bladder Run

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

 

I have a long way to go as apart from a couple of small roles several years ago I only really started last summer! I have mostly had supporting roles or small roles as well as some main roles in Student or Independent Films. I do try to get into the character by thinking about how that person would walk, talk, react and this is something I want to work on by doing more workshops/courses and being involved in as many opportunities as possible. I am 59 and recently said to a colleague on set that I had come into film rather late. She replied that she had started last year at the age of 78! Never lose sight of your dreams! She went off to do a commercial and was paid £200 for an hour’s work!

 

Actresses (or indeed actors) who inspire you?

 

Lots but if I had to choose 1 I would say Johnny Depp as he is filming in the UK at present and has a house in Norfolk!

Although I like SFX make-up I don’t especially like films that have a lot of horrific violence for the sake of it.
