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

 

The movie is essentially about Theresa’s journey into a new depraved world that she unintentionally has found herself in while naively being led by my character, Allison, who is morally deficient, but hides it well.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Sarah Schoofs can we actually find in Allison? And how does one prepare for playing a vampire even?

 

There is definitely some of me in every role I play. I would venture to guess that this role was probably inspired by me single & savagely dating in my 30’s, where I was old enough to know what I wanted & have lived long enough to not tolerate other people's bullshit. In playing a vampire, I just imagined blood was as good as pizza.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place?

 

Having done several horror features prior to Theresa & Allison, I had known of & had been wanting to work with director Jeremiah Kipp [Jeremiah Kipp interview - click here] for a while. When I realized that they were having auditions for this film, I’m not sure I have ever walked into an audition room more fully prepared. It was absolutely worth it because I am incredibly proud of this movie & honored to be a part of this stupid talented cast & crew.

 

Theresa & Allison contains quite a bit of nudity - was this at all an issue for you, and how do you handle such scenes?

 

I think I am more desensitized to nudity than most actors. I work full time as a nude model for artists in addition to working on Naked Holidays for 5 years in the city which involves fully nude scenes on stage (I was a naked limbo stick). This particular movie was probably the *most* nude I have been, but knowing that Jeremiah & cinematographer Christopher Bye were behind the camera made me comfortable & confident to jump into every scene without hesitation or concern. I don’t necessarily think I would have been as free with other directors/cinematographers without that level of trust & respect.

 

What can you tell us about Theresa & Allison's director Jeremiah Kipp [Jeremiah Kipp interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

I have worked with Jeremiah a few times since & it has always been an amazing experience. As I have said before, he is truly an actor’s director, but he also is professional as hell & gets shit done efficiently AND the final product is always good. He has a great reputation for a reason. I tell actors if they get a chance to work with him, JUMP on it :)

 

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

 

COLD. Every exterior was shot when the temps dropped to subzero temperatures. The scenes on the playground were really difficult because it was in the 20’s & we were playing on a frozen metal playground, constantly holding for train passing every 5 minutes on an elevated subway track. The interiors were ridiculous & full of laughter - especially the sex scenes... SO many brilliant women on one film set.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Meme has some exciting updates coming soon in NYC (https://www.facebook.com/memethemovie/).

The short film Bookworm is a part of an anthology that will be screening on January 12th in Jersey City (https://www.facebook.com/events/2097351903863634/).

 

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

 

I sucked at everything in high school. I struggled to find my place until a young couple moved into my small hometown & introduced a theater program to the community. I went from my first small role of ‘Harriet the laughing lady’ to drama club president, thespian society, Shakespeare competitions & I have not stopped since. Most of my training has been on the job training, learning from some of the best actors & crew in NYC.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Theresa & Allison?

 

I was lucky to have been a part of the feature Gut, which was an official selection of 20+ international film festivals. That jumpstarted my journey into the horror world which also includes Phobia & Ayla (all available on iTunes/Amazon), Back Road & Infernum & I Waited For You, which was Indieworks audience choice! I also have a feature, Meme, which was best feature at the Art of Brooklyn FF, & a sci-fi feature in post called Edge of Oblivion.

 

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

 

I use a lot of broken relationships, desires & passions to drive the decisions & often poor choices the characters I play make :)

 

Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?

 

I am inspired by Cate Blanchett,Tilda Swinton & Daniel Day Lewis.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

I love Labyrinth!!! I also really love Moulin Rouge & Shakespeare in Love. I’m a sap :)

 

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

 

I have never been able to get into Lord if the Rings - probably because the first time I saw one of the films was on a really bad date.
