Since we've last talked less than two years ago [click
here], you've been on an incredible number of projects - now first
of all, what keeps you going, where do you get the energy from?
I was raised blue collar on the east coast, and there's just this
inherent work ethic that comes with that. As soon as I wrap on a project,
I'm technically unemployed so there's this desire to always be pushing
forward and looking for the next project.
are "Pom Pom Kitty" on the show King of the Nerds - so
what can you tell us about the show as such and your role in it? And to what extent can you
identify with nerd culture,
do you at all find nerdy traits in yourself?
lucky to have a recurring guest role for 3 seasons now. (New episodes
start airing January 23rd.) It's my favorite project to date, the cast and
crew are like family, and well... it's just amazingly fun to work on! To me
a nerd is anyone that's not afraid to be themselves, to do what makes them
happy even if it's not cool or mainstream... and I've been doing that since
I was a kid.
How did you get onto the
show in the first place, and how does making a show like this compare to
making a movie?
I was hired to be a living Japanime figure for the series premiere and
to work that giant chess game, and they just kept bringing me back from
there! I started calling the character Pom Pom Kitty because, well, she
was a cat, and I was just covered with pom poms. She's evolved into many
different themes and creatures since. It's no different than a movie,
really. I'm not as typecast as one may think.
Speaking of movies, you've recently been
in Chicks Dig Gay Guys - do talk about that one and your character
in it? And is it true, do chicks dig gay guys?
It's one of the first movies I ever did, I have several funny scenes...
and although I play a girl that falls for the rouse, I wouldn't
find it sexually attractive in real life at all. Girls want guys that
Another recent film of yours is Stretch
- do talk about that one for a bit!
There's a lot of big
names in that and I'm only in one scene... but that's where I met Randy who
was playing the Jovi, and I was smitten from the start even with his
platinum blonde wig, ostrich jacket, and acid washed jeans.
Supper - a few words about that one?
Last Supper is a
comedy I did with veteran comedic actors Eddie Griffin and Josh Meyers.
It's one of my bigger roles and a funny character and I'm excited for it
to come out to VOD this spring.
You've recently also been
in a handful of movies by Jared Masters [Jared
Masters interview - click here] - so what can you tell us about
those, and what's working with Jared like?
Jared's a great
guy! I did 2 films with him and we're hoping for a third. He's really good
at working with a budget and getting the films out there.
the Zombie Stoner - now that's too good a title for you to not say a
few words about it ...
I've done several films for The
Asylum (although I'm still sad I wasn't in Sharknado, lol) and
the Zombie Stoner is one of my faves. When I booked the role of
the Hispanic nurse I thought for sure they'd change her name or
something, but they didn't which I think makes it even funnier. There
was a funny line I improv'd about a gerbil that I wished they had kept
Live Nude Girls - based on
the title alone, I know
my male readers would tar and feather me if I didn't ask you about that
one, so please please save me and talk about the movie for a bit!
a comedy about an 80's strip club and it was directed by In Living
Jay Leggett, who sadly passed away soon after it was finished. It's a very
special project for me, I made so many good friends on that set... I hope
we made him proud in the final edit!
recently also played a stripper on the daily soap Days of Our Lives
- so what can you tell us about that experience, and how does shooting a
daily soap compare to making a movie?
Yes! I played the
stripper they accidentally ordered for the gay wedding! Soaps shoot fast!
They do an episode in about every 2 days, so you only get one maybe two
takes for every scene! It's a small town on the show so hopefully I get to
reoccur as the only stripper in town!
You're also in the
upcoming highly anticipated Samurai Cop 2 - so how did that come
about, and what can you tell us about that movie and shoot? And were you
even aware of the original Samurai Cop
when you got the role?
I looked up the original when I was
offered the sequel and I just fell in love with the project! It's
entertaining and fun and I get to totally kick ass as a Japanese samurai
so... what could be better than that?!
Feeling lucky ?
any of my partnershops yourself
for more, better results ?
The links below
will take you
far as I know, you're also set to be in your Samurai Cop 2's co
star Shane Ryan's [Shane Ryan interview
- click here] Ted Bundy has a Son - at all true, and anything you
can tell us about that project yet?
I'm set to play a
reporter in Shane's movie, it's got quite the cult following too so I'm
excited to team up again!
Any other current or
future projects you'd like to talk about?
The Green Fairy
Blood Story should be the next projects due out. I can't keep track
of my own stuff sometimes, part of being a workaholic it seems...
Facebook, whatever else?
will have my full list of credits and
will have news for upcoming projects and release dates.
