Your new webseries Portal - in a few words what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Portal is a science-fiction feature film from Future Artists, it's the first drama to be commissioned by DailyMotion and it is being released in five parts as a webseries, exclusivly on DailyMotion, before it's feature-length release later this year. There is this virtual world where “players” can be whoever they want to be, become whatever they want to be, their most intense dreams can become reality. But in order to enter, you need to be in a medically-induced coma and the drugs have been made illegal. The story of Portal follows a drug dealer, played by Clay Whitter, a doctor, played by Victoria Connett, and a girl who is down-and-out user by day and a glamorous and powerful dominatrix by night, played by Chelsea Edge. I play a guy called Adrian, who is struggling to overcome his addiction to Portal, he is attending a self-help group, led by Vicky Connett’s character, in order to get his life back on track.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of Nathan Head can we find in Adrian?

 

Well the director Mark Ashmore gave some incredibly helpful pointers to get into character.  I started by direct preparation the night before the day of filming, I didn’t wash my hair or shave for days, I purposely wore dirty and oversized clothes, and on the day of filming I aimed to wake up as early as possible in order to add to my physical tiredness and help bring to life the character of Adrian. I’m afraid there is very little “Nathan Head” in Adrian, his jacket is the only thing from my own life that ended up in Adrian’s life.

 

How did you get hooked up with the project in the first place? And to what extent can you relate to the series' underlying "addiction"-theme?

 

I’d worked with director Mark Ashmore & producer Sarah Lee Jones previously on the feature film The Lost Generation, which had a successful cinematic and DVD release the previous year. The making-of documentary had been featured on the DailyMotion homepage and the film’s success had driven a phenomenal level of traffic to the website. When Portal’s preproduction was announced, all the people who had worked on The Lost Generation were invited to audition for Portal

I can’t relate much to the addiction theme, but I can relate to the virtual world, having dabbled in certain online games that run in realtime, encouraging the user to constantly log back in out of fear of losing track of their avatar’s activities in their absence.

 

Do talk about your director Mark Ashmore for a bit, and what was your collaboration like?

 

I had known Mark Ashmore for a number of years before The Lost Generation though, through working in the Manchester and Salford film scene in the noughties, it was fantastic to have worked with his team on two productions. Future Artists have made some amazing productions and organised some fantastic events and art projects over the years.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 



The shoot had a very quick turnover with a tight schedule over a few weeks, but saying that I think we all worked pretty efficiently. All of us had mostly worked with each other previously, be it on The Lost Generation or other projects. Shireen Ashton who plays the fantasy dancer Sasha in Portal also played my sister Venus in Theatre Of Fear/The Midnight Horror Show, so it was fantastic to be reunited with her again during the cast readthrough. I also got the opportunity to act with Mia Vore again, who plays another Portal-addict called Vix, I had previously worked with Mia on a showreel scene a few years ago, where I got into character a little too much and accidentally smashed her ornamental oil burner. After many years of her being oil-burner-free, I eventually bought a replacement and presented it to her during Portal. We all got on very well during filming, Mia and me and the other addicts spent our time between takes rehearsing the self-help chant and just generally gazing into space, to help us get into character. I must say though, my scenes with Vicky Connett in Portal were the extreme opposite of my scenes in The Lost Generation with her, she’s a delight to work with though.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Well, very excitingly, we are currently shooting the second in a series of photographic horror comicbooks from Hellbound Media that I’ve been starring in. The first was called Dorian & Drama: Reflections of the Damned and can be obtained via the link below, and that story was about a haunted antique camera that contained the photographic copies of the souls of insane asylum inmates. The comics are a fantastic concept from Matt Warner and Craig Colville, all the images contain practical special effects and lighting tricks with a very effective result, in an almost Hammer-horror inspired graphic novel. I can’t reveal the title of the second story yet, as it may give too much away and I want to remain mysterious, ha ha. But it’s going to be set in a cursed theatre that holds a dark past.
