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


My character in The Amityville Legacy is actually the only cousin/niece to the rest of the cast. "Schuylar", who is notorious for being late and snobby, is the daughter of Cheyenne.


With The Amityville Legacy being about a family get-together gone horribly wrong - is that a situation you can at all identify with (apart from the murders I hope)?


I can't remember any family gatherings gone awry, but I will have to say that at Easter, my dad and my cousin have this never ending vendetta about stealing each other's Easter eggs and the money inside! It's quite comical to see a 50 year old chasing a 20 year old around the yard for $10.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Schuylar Craig can we find in Schuylar, actually?


Actually, you can find a lot of the real Schuylar in the character, Schuylar. Except being late. I'm not allllways late ;) but I'm pretty sassy. On set though, I'm a comic and like to giggle with the cast - something that my character would never do. She may seem like a bitter young lady, but I find that she has this hidden empathy that you see come out later in the film.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place? And also in regards to your filmography so far, is horror at all a genre you're also fond of, personally?


Director Dustin Ferguson [Dustin Ferguson interview - click here] approached me about doing The Amityville Legacy after we finished Night of the Clown (written and directed by Dustin), and of course I said yes. Horror has definitely been my favorite to film. It's the adrenaline rush that makes it fun.


What can you tell us about your directors Dustin Ferguson [Dustin Ferguson interview - click here] and Mike Johnson, and what was your collaboration with them like?


Working with Dustin is a dream. He's so comfortable to film around. Dustin really takes his work seriously - so on set you're like "Okay, I'm going to come in 100% on this", and then behind the scenes, we're telling jokes and laughing. This is the first film I've exclusively worked with Mike, but he is so talented. I mean, this guy just knows his shit. It was impressive to see the collaboration between two incredible directors and how The Amityville Legacy came to life.


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


I love being on set. I talk about it all the time on Twitter and Facebook. I'm Snapchatting if I'm not acting. It provides an inside peek and my family/friends/fans eat it up. The atmosphere on set ranges from crazy intense to laid back. Filming The Amityville Legacy had a ton of both. There was one day in particular where the weather was insane. It was 50 degrees, sunny and snowing all at once. It was wild, the crew were wiping windows like madmen while the cast ran around like children.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Indeed. Later this summer, I'll be filming Blood Model written and directed by Mathew Kister. I've also had some hints thrown my way about Dustin's film, The Dummy 2, which I can't wait to read. Dolls are creepy - and he tends to cast me in roles that get me all worked up.


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


Acting has always been a huge part of my life. As a kid, I did children's theater, community theater, high school drama, I took college acting/theater courses - but being on film has been a crazy alternative. Live theater is slow work and you have one chance to not screw up. Filming is more free but it's entirely more demanding.


Let's talk some more about The Amityville Legacy's director Dustin Ferguson [Dustin Ferguson interview - click here] - you have worked with him before quite a bit, so do talk about your earlier collaborations, and how did the two of you first meet, even?


Dustin and I met on Facebook because I saw he was casting for a music video. I messaged him and asked to audition. The first thing he asked me was, "Can you rollerblade?" and I replied, "Doubt it", and he said "Okay, what shoe size are you? Be here at 4 to try on your skates." It was hilarious. He had so much confidence in me from the beginning. We've done about 7 films together. Every single movie we've done has been a blast.


Any other previous films of yours you'd like to talk about?


If you haven't seen Shockumentary, you need to. Also, shout out to Doug Mill for trusting me to throw an ax at him like 5 times during Camp Blood 5.


Besides movies, you have also done your fair share of stage acting, including musicals - so do talk about your on-stage experiences for a bit, and how does performing on stage compare to acting in front of a camera?


Musicals are so much fun. In high school, I was a dancer and also in choir - so for most of the musicals, I was in charge of choreography with fellow dancers. It was a great experience to see my work come to life by 100 kids on stage. My only big on-stage role I had was when I was 12 years old in a musical called Kilroy Was Here. I got to be this sassy detective who had a ton of witty oneliners. I swear my mom hates talking about it to this day because I'd force her to run lines with me a million times so I wouldn't bomb on stage.


You're also working as a model, right? So what can you tell us about that aspect of your career, and how does it influence your acting (and vice versa)?


Correct. I was signed by Career Images Modeling and Talent almost a year ago and it's a completely different realm. Modeling is posing your body and acting with your face for a split second while the camera clicks. Film is acting with your entire soul for minutes at a time. Both acting and modeling kind of piggyback off each other, though. You learn things from each and apply it to the other. It's made me a stronger model and actress all around.


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


I try to apply my natural feelings to my characters. If I find a situation to be genuine to me, my acting ends up being more genuine. However, I've never actually been murdered or killed anyone in real life (haha), but you take the feeling of something you actually endure in real life and apply that feeling to what your character is feeling. For instance, in Shockumentary, we were held hostage and were terrified. The entire time we did that scene, I thought about how my husband Christopher feels when he sees a spider. It worked. I started crying because he would probably start crying.


Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?


Horror? Jamie Lee Curtis. She is my go-to when I study leading ladies in horror. I am also a huge fan of Timothy Olyphant (The Crazies). Something about how he can bop around to any genre just gets my heart pumping.


Your favourite movies?


Donnie Darko. The original version of The Ring, Ringu (1998) the Japanese version. You won't sleep for a week, I swear. I love movies I can be scared by. I'm also a huge fan of comedies. Superbad will always be a favorite. My soft spot resides in My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service. Hayao Miyazaki is so talented it hurts.


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

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


Most people don't know, but I'm a pageant queen! When I'm not getting bloody, I'm primping! I'm competing for a national title in July and my platform is "Support the Veterans". I spend a lot of time working with vets and student veterans, because my husband is one and because I've seen the struggle. Being able to help out the community is something I wake up every morning for!


Thanks for the interview!
