Your upcoming film Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it? How did you get involved with the project in the first place? And what were the first thoughts that crossed your mind when you heard the title "Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich"?


I was fortunate enough to have worked with the talented Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here], Michelle Gent [Michelle Gent interview - click here] and the cast & crew before in Exorcist Chronicles, so I knew it'd be good! When I first heard the title "Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich", honestly? I thought 'Crikey'! I also had to research for my role as Forcas the Vril.


How did you prepare for your role, what did you draw upon to bring your character to life?


Vril were tortured, beaten, assaulted, and de-humanised to such a degree, thankfully I couldn't draw on any life experience, but the long hours in the hypothermic cold of the shoot (note Vril had very little costume!) brought me close to the experience anyway!


What can you tell us about Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich's director Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like? And how did you first hook up with him?


I had been an avid reader of Philip Gardiner's books, watcher of Gardiner's World and a big fan for years. I love the way he seeks truth and has no time for idiots! Anyway, when the chance to audition for a part in Exorcist Chronicles came up, I jumped at the chance... and well, the rest is history. I love working for Philip and Michelle, you have no idea what's coming next!


From what I heard, at least parts of Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich were shot in an unheated warehouse during the coldest days of the year - so what can you tell us about the shoot as such and the on-set atmosphere?


True! But the cast and crew are incredibly close, supportive and happy in each other's company, so together we can conquer anything! 


If there ever was a Dead Walkers II: Nazis Raise the 5th Reich in a Freezer, would you be on board?


Erm, let me see.... Hell yeah!!


You have previously worked with Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich's director Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here] on Exorcist Chronicles - now what can you tell us about that experience of yours?


I adored making this film, literally had the time of my life! I cannot really express what this film means to me. It was my first feature, I met SO many gorgeous people that are now dear friends... Oh I could wax on about it for hours!


With Dead Walkers co-star Paul Sutton [Paul Sutton interview - click here], you have recently also been in the short Metanoia - care to talk about that movie for a bit?


Paul and I had been in touch via Facebook, but this film was our first (of many now!) chance to act together, it was a very small but dramatic scene where I am the victim of domestic abuse (from Paul's character). I had to convince Paul to be rougher with my hair pulling and throttling ... having said that when he's running at you snarling abuse it IS scary! We all know that it is due to his phenomenal acting as he's a right softie really!


You've recently also done some work on a Bollywood-movie, right? You just have to talk about that experience, and how does the Bollywood approach compare to the British approach to filmmaking?


I will be honest here, although it was an interesting experience, vastness, music, aromas etc, I didn't enjoy filming this as much as the smaller indie films I have done. 


Any other films of yours you want to talk about, any future projects you'd like to share?


Wow! I have been really blessed. So many worthy mentions here but to select a few, I am very proud of Mesto (Italian for mourning) - Dwayne Perks and Mary-Jayne Davis are incredibly talented. Mesto (in which I had a lead role) has gone to Cannes Film Festival this year, along with Wasteland an amazing zombie film by Tommy Draper, Tom and Chrissa Wadlow [Tom Wadlow interview - click here] and Mark Drake, great fun!


The Last Rites Joe O'Sullivan - in which I was a tribal warrior is another to look out for.


I particularly enjoyed the short noir film Partis De Fumee shot in York. Future top crew here, they were incredibly professional and great to work with.


I have been a guest star in the hugely popular web-series No Place like Holmes: Mary Morstan Mysteries as Mrs Cecil Forrester. Also featured in SKY1's sitcom Trollied.


Now I am about to be taking to the STAGE too! Blame the lovely and talented Actress, Producer, Director, Writer, and Vocalist, Kay Vardy [Kay Vardy interview - click here]!


I have several exciting film and TV project opportunities in discussion and will bring you news when I hear!


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


In a word.... Philip Gardiner [Philip Gardiner interview - click here]! The Exorcist Chronicles audition was my first experience of the industry, and I was completely 'bitten on the arse' - NO not by Phil! By the whole acting thing! I met the fabulous and gorgeous Rudy Barrow [Rudy Barrow interview - click here] at this audition too. I have since attended Brian Timoney's Actors Studios for a seminar and a boot camp. Also attended many great CD workshops and seminars.


Can you still remember your first time in front of a movie camera, and what was that experience like?


It was used IN the film Exorcist Chronicles! Not my best look, half naked, possessed by evilness, haha!


You of course also have to talk about your ghosthunting experiences!


I love ghost hunting! Have hunted with the best, Team Impact UK and Ghosthunters TAPS in the USA with Steve Gonsalves, Amy Bruni, Dave and Bruce Tango, John Zaffis et al! Fantastic! Have had lots of experiences.


Any other aspects of your career we should know about?


I am currently learning to speak Mandarin. 


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


Ooh that's a tough one! I always give my heart and soul to every role no matter how small. I am uninhibited, fearless, hard working and versatile in many genres. Having been a trained nurse, worked in the corporate industry, a gatekeeper, a waitress and a mother of two, there's plenty of scope for drawing on life experiences!


Actresses (or indeed actors) who inspire you?


So many... Meryl Streep, Judy Dench, Jennifer Morrison, the actress out of Cold Case! Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Sean Bean, Tom Riley, Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman and more...
