Your upcoming film Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


Secret agents have recently uncovered a hidden Nazi base, full of dark evil secrets and massive plans for the world.

The film follows our special agents attempting to uncover and stop them before they begin their plan to rise!

I play the part of ‘Major Alder‘ who is a pretty nasty and cold blooded Nazi!


Seriously, when you initially heard the film's title - Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich -, what were the first thoughts going through your mind?


Graham Gill, Melissa Hollett

I imagined it to be Nazis coming back from the dead to destroy everything in their paths! But hey! You never QUITE know with Phil’s films ... That’s the beauty of them!


With Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich being - among other things - a zombie movie, is that a genre you can at all relate to?


It's not a zombie movie that zombie followers would recognise. There are tons of very different twists and turns and some new concepts that will attract World War 2 fans and the odd conspiracy theorist as well. But there's plenty of guts and gore... and THEN some!


What can you tell us about Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich's director Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Phil is a fantastic director! He says what he means ... and he means what he says! His direction is easy to understand. He is very easy going but serious when he needs to be. I find him great to work with.


From what I heard, at least parts of Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich were shot in an unheated warehouse during the coldest days of the year - so what can you tell us about the shoot as such and the on-set atmosphere?


Yes! It was absolutely bloody freezing! But ... how could you realistically heat a derelict building like that? By the time it would have been remotely warm it would have been time to finish for the day! The location was PERFECT... The whole atmosphere added to the tension of the film! We didn’t care about the cold... we were too busy being ... well NASTY! And nice of course! (Off set.)


If there ever was a Dead Walkers II: Since the 4th Didn't Quite Succeed Either, Let's Raise the 5th Reich, would you be on board?


Definitely! I enjoyed every moment of filming the 4th... and it’s not always about success in a plot that makes a film... Or is it?


Prior to Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich, you have made Exorcist Chronicles with Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here] - so what can you tell us about that movie and your role in it?


Exorcist Chronicles involves an epidemic of possessions across the globe ... only there is a big and very unexpected ‘twist’ to the story!


Exorcist Chronicles

I played the part of a possessed woman who was proving rather difficult to be ‘ridded’ of the said demon within her!


Is it true that initially, you only sent in a clip of yourself being possessed to be used in the film (as did I, actually), to then be offered an actual part?


Yes I did! I saw the casting for it and thought it would be great to try it! I saw that it was going to be used in the film and was then invited to come up and see if I could do a few scenes for the film. I love horror films but never actually thought I would get a chance to play a part in one!


From what I've read, Philip Gardiner pushed his cast quite a bit on Exorcist Chronicles - so did you ever have the feeling of being pushed too far, and what can you tell us about your experiences on the movie set?


On Dead Walkers, we were all pushed to our limits, from physical acts to acting. We all enjoyed every moment! Phil can always see ‘who is capable of what?’ very quickly - which is what makes the filming work for everybody involved!


Let's go back to the beginnings of your career, what got you into acting in the first place, and what can you tell us about your training as an actress?


Many years ago I gained some acting experience through a drama group based in Lincolnshire where I used to help write script and take part in plays.

After which I wanted to get into film acting and modelling but was unable to do anything about it (long boring ex story), so just over three years ago I decided to look into it again and joined a casting agency.

It went from there really. I have been in quite a few films and done some work for the BBC which includes Holby City, A Touch Of Cloth and soon to shoot for a new upcoming BBC drama called The Tunnel.

I have learnt many things along the way over the last three years through just ‘being there’ to see how things are done and delivered so I would say that I’m pretty much ‘self taught’.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Exorcist Chronicles and Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich?


Rudy Barrow, Melissa Hollett, Liz Mente Bishop in 

Exorcist Chronicles

My first film was a night club and fight pit patron in a film called Dead Cert starring Craig Fairbrass and Dexter Fletcher. I then went on to do similar films such as My Big Fat Gypsy Gangster with Ricky Grover, Bonded By Blood, Turn Out and the 2012 feature film Fast Girls. I then played a court coroner in the upcoming feature film The Look of Love starring Steve Coogan and Anna Friel. I also recently worked in the New Bollywood film Jab Tak Hai Jaan - which is huge in India right now.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I have some more filming in the pipeline for Phil and whatever else that may come my way that is ‘for me’. I like to take each day as it comes as you just never know!


You're also doing a bit of modeling on the side, right? So what can you tell us about Melissa Hollett, the model, and how do acting and modeling compare?


I started off by doing some modelling for a photographer that has been a friend of mine for many years - which gave me the confidence to do more! Acting and modelling both feel a little similar to me - as with both you need to be imagining yourself in different scenarios. However, with the acting side of things I tend to forget what I actually may ‘look like’ in a scene as I’m too busy doing it!


How would you describe yourself as an actress, and what do you usually draw upon to bring your characters to life?


When I’m told my part I instantly try and imagine what kind of person this may be... What would my personality really be like? How would I react in certain scenarios? I tend to draw on my own imagination. I enjoy switching off from ‘Melissa Hollett’ for a bit... I know I can bring her back afterwards... Luckily or I would probably be arrested!!


Actresses (or indeed actors) who inspire you?


I love Joanna Lumley as you all probably know by now! As I love her work!

John Cleese for his typical English humour!

I was brought up on Monty Python humour and such like! I also think Jo Brand is bloody brilliant! – I seem to love – well comedians mainly!

I do really LOVE supernatural/paranormal and horror films! I love the way that Japanese paranormal films are made especially! They have this great knack of making you jump and leaving more to the imagination than actually SHOWING everything!

I also love the British comedy films - Monty Python and the Holy Grail  and The Life of Brian - I could act the WHOLE things out! Love them!

I also really like Cast Away and The Terminal with Tom Hanks. He is a fantastic actor! There aren’t many films that I would watch again but these I would and have!


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


I can’t bare Final Destination-films! The first one was ok but then it just got really silly, cheesy and predictable!
