Your new movie B.C. Butcher - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

A post-feminist band of pre-historic women struggle with dominance hierarchy as they face unexplainable disappearances from the tribe.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life?

 

The San Fernando Valley, 1989. (Pause) And the cool girl, Leanne, from my 7th grade class.

 

What was it even like to run around the woods in campy costumes like yours?

 

This film was shot in the summer, so running around in scanty animal print was basically what I would be doing whether we were filming or not. So, seemed normal.

 

How did you get hooked up with the project in the first place, and to what extent can you identify with the prehistoric and the slasher genre?

 

I identify with the prehistoric slasher genre the way I identify with William Golding – there’s something a little Lord of the Flies about our tribe. Besides trying to survive the wild, there’s an underlying competition for rank - Anaconda would for sure take over first in command given the chance. There’s also something irresponsible about the way the girls handle problems that is reminiscent of the boys from Lord of the Flies.

 

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

 

Kansas is such a surprise. She’s like 18 Again or something – like maybe she switched bodies with someone older who also happened to have a lot of filmmaking experience? She has a sort of multi–era personality that adds to her maturity – I promise that Kansas knows more about The Ramones, The Monkees and The Beatles than most people who were actually alive when those bands were touring. She is a soul of a different era, maybe even multiple eras, and it shows in her work and personality!

 

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

 

We all helped each other a lot. If an additional reflector was needed - an actress would hold it, if someone needed help dressing the set – the sound team would do it, if someone needed underwear – Kato would give up his loincloth. No one was above any job and we all wanted to make this film happen.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I ran with the whole animal theme and went from Anaconda with a live snake to Bella in Toby Goes to Camp with a live tiger! A tiger! A real tiger! Toby Goes to Camp is the creation of Animal Family Films, directed by Michael Sarna, that follows the story of a tiger that goes to summer camp and has a few adventures. I’m mostly looking forward to Toby Goes to Hawaii, which is the obvious next step in the Toby series. On that note, I think a pre-historic slasher sequel in Hawaii is probably in order.

 

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

 

When I was two, I snuck onto a stage at a pancake breakfast and put on a show, so I guess, attention? But seriously, it’s a chance to explore what it is to be a human through a story. It’s a chance to share that exploration with everyone so we can all go through that emotional process together and understand each other just a little better.

 

I have a B.A. in Dramatic Art from UC Davis (along with a B.S. in Biology for good measure). I’ve trained and performed continually throughout my life and have found a permanent home to explore story through the empathetic imagination at The Imagined Life Studio created by Diana Castle along with Steve Teitsort.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to B.C. Butcher?

 

The first feature film I worked on was a comedy called They Want Dick Dickster created and starring Robert Ray Shafer aka the "Vance Refrigeration Guy" from The Office. This cast was amazingly gracious and welcoming. I’m so glad to have worked with these people on my first film because it set a precedence for me as an actress to always be gracious and generous in the way Bobby Shafer, Tim Russ, Darin Cooper, Tim Abell and the entire cast was on the Dick Dickster set.

 

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

 

Awesome.

 

Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?

 

Right now I’m loving Krysten Ritter. We clump people into comedy and drama, especially women! I love that Krysten has gone from a comedy like Don’t Trust the B—— in Apartment 23 to a very dark dramatic role in Jessica Jones. I love her as a comedic actress, but I’m blown away with her work in Jessica Jones and love watching the struggle of that character through Krysten Ritter.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

My favorite movie changes all the time, but I can tell you the movies that I repeat in my head the most: Zoolander, The Shining, The Lion King, Whiplash, oh and on music related movies, Love & Mercy this past year – amazing performances by both Paul Dano and John Cusack that gave me a whole new understanding and respect for the creativity and genius of Brian Wilson.
