Your movie Awesome Killer Audition - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character?


Awesome Killer Audition is an X Factor-style film, with a difference... youíll have to watch it till the end to see why, my character is a little twisted to say the least. All that the cast knew about the film was that they would have to perform their audition piece in front of a panel of judges as normal, and that the rest of the film was all improv.


As far as I know, the whole thing was mostly improvised. So how much freedom were you given in terms of creating your character and your "display of talent"?


Indeed I had the freedom to run riot, no script, no lines, just improv, and all shot in one long take, apart from that there was no pressure. I was advised by the director Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here] to try and make people do things that they would not normally do. My character would have to turn from being a normal sane person into a total psycho.


Now I'm sure you drew upon personal experiences to bring the audition bit of your role to life - but how did you prepare for playing the psychopath?


The audition was the hardest part, as I had to try and keep a straight face, as a member of the audience kept butting in throughout my act. His comments were very funny, and even funnier still, he delivered them with a straight face, and the rest of the audience were laughing their socks off ... I just wanted to burst out laughing myself!


Awesome Killer Audition was done in one long take, right? To get this right, how much rehearsal did actually go into the making of the movie?


One take means one take, there were no rehearsals, we all met at a location near Nottingham, everyone changed into their costumes, the lighting was set, and then it was time, it was as quick as that.


Now there's one thing that I seriously do not understand: How did all of you manage to keep a straight face throughout all the proceedings - especially considering it was shot in one take?


It was hard for most of us to keep a straight face, but we pulled it off in one take! They say that laughter is good for the mind and body, and that something about it takes more facial muscles to frown than it does to smile, anyway believe it or not itís very hard to make me laugh, unless something is really funny, but when I do., my eyes start to water, my stomach hurts, oh man, what a good feeling. There was one point in the film where it was really hard for me to keep a straight face, and I do believe that for a spilt second I turn my back on the camera to compose my facial expressions.


Now I know you have worked with Awesome Killer Audition's director Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here] before and again since - so how was your collaboration with him on that particular movie like, and did it differ from other experiences with him?


Handy for me, Iíve worked on other Philip Gardiner-films before, so I kind of know what heís looking for. The only other thing I was told was, when given the nod I would have a few minutes left to bring the film to an end. I do love a challenge, Awesome Killer Audition was the one, shot in one day, one take and improv all the way.


Do talk about the actual shoot and the on-set atmosphere for a bit!


The film was shot in a pub which had a little stage, ideal for the X Factor-effect. The atmosphere was that of nerves as the cast had no idea of which direction the film would go, or what would happen next. The good thing was that most of us had worked with each other before on other films, and we all got on really well.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


For all you horror fans, youíre in for a treat! IĎve just finished playing the part of an Exorcist in a new movie called Blaze of Glory, which is a new British horror film, shot in ten different story segments of about 10 mins each, directed by ten different film directors. The segment Iím in is called Wraparound. The film is still in production but should be out in January 2014.
