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

 

Fluid Boy is about an actress who goes for an audition for a part in a zombie film. The audition is held by two filmmakers, one of whom is out of control. Things go horribly wrong and the pair decide to make a snuff movie.

 

What did you draw upon to bring Julie to life, and how much of yourself can you find in Julie?

 

My background started with am-dram and I used this to portray a nervous character who was willing to do almost anything to procure a part in a film. When things began to get out of hand she tried to walk away. In real life I would have walked away much sooner!

 

How did you get hooked up with the project in the first place? And honestly, what were your first thoughts when you learned what it's about?

 

Jason Impey [Jason Impey interview - click here] contacted me after I worked with him on Grindsploitation. He needed an actress who was prepared to push the boundaries. I confess the content took my breath away, but having worked with Jason previously I knew that the shoot would be conducted in a very professional manner.

 

Being an actress yourself, I hope you never had an audition remotely like Fluid Boy - but care to talk about some of your good and bad experiences?

 

Actually I have never given an audition, but I'd like to think that when I do I would handle it a bit better than the unfortunate Julie.

 

What can you tell us about your directors/co-stars Jason Impey [Jason Impey interview - click here] and Wade Radford [Wade Radford interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

Jason is very professional. He always made sure I was comfortable with what he wanted to film. I had never met Wade before, however he managed to make even the very gritty scenes fun to act. Both of them are a joy to work with.

 

As far as I know the film was pretty much improvised on the spot - now how much of a strain was that?

 

I actually love improvisation. As an actress it gives me a great sense of freedom and allows me to  push the boundaries.

 

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

 

The shoot was all done in a day and the atmosphere was amazing. Ideas were being bounced around, often with hilarious results. It was great fun.

 

With Jason Impey, you have recently also shot a segment for the anthology flick Grindsploitation - now what can you tell us about that one?

 

This was the first time I had actually met Jason. I had the script but other than that I really didn't know what to expect. Jason and his team had everything very well organised and again the shoot was done in a very friendly but professional atmosphere.

 

Any other current or future films you'd like to talk about?

 

with Ryan Hunter in Grindsploitation

Wade has approached me about a future project, but other than that there's nothing at the moment.

 

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

 

I have always enjoyed acting since I was a small child. I was lucky enough to go to school in France where they have a much more creative attitude to the arts and artists. Acting was very much on the syllabus and I guess I knew then what I wanted to do. I started here in am-dram, but frankly film and in particular horror has always been my passion.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Fluid Boy?

 

I have been involved in several projects locally, but nothing of any great note. Meeting Jason and Wade has been a real eye opener for me as I can now see just what can be achieved with very little budget and a dedicated team.

 

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

 

I like to think that I can portray strong characters and I feel I have a fairly wide range as apart from horror I also have a great love of comedy and I suppose my ideal role would be where I could combine the two. As far as techniques go, I try to fully understand my characters, but without having to resort to method acting I literally become the character in my head.

 

Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?

 

I just love the Hammer queens, Ingrid Pitt and Caroline Munroe [Caroline Munroe bio - click here]. They have both become icons in the horror genre which is something I would like to aspire to.

I have a great passion for horror, but my all-time favourite film is Ghostbusters - still looking good after 31 years!

 

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

 

I can't bear to watch anything with animals being hurt. I'm a big animal lover and I can't understand why anyone would want to watch something like that.

 

Your website, Facebook, whatever else?

 

As yet I haven't got an official website or Facebook page.

 

Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

Just to say that I am over the moon about the feedback so far on Fluid Boy. I am very excited to be part of the film.

 

Thanks for the interview!
