First of all, could you introduce yourself in a few words to those of us unfortunate enough to not already know you?

 

My name is Seregon OíDassey, and Iíve been acting and modeling since I was pretty young. Iíve done numerous TV shows, commercials, films, theatre productions and have been in several magazines. Iím most known for being in Playboy magazine and as a Scream Queen.

 

Your latest, yet-to-be-released movie is called Cleric. What can you tell us about the movie as such and the role you play in it?

 

I play the lead role of Samara, a cop type character hired to hunt down and kill a mutant heretic - a government project gone wrong.

 

As far as I know, you also did your own stunts in Cleric. What kind of a challenge was that, and what can we expect from Clericstuntwise?

 

I did do my own stunts and learned fight choreography on the spot. It was a challenge, but a small one since I trained for about a month before the shoot. I have also gone through basic training and I do kickboxing regularly. It takes a lot to wear me down ;)

 

Besides Cleric, you recently also had a supporting role in (the yet-to-be-released) Teeth of Beasts. A few words about that movie and your role in it?

 

Still from Cleric

I only shot one day for this film. I play an old, evil crone who possesses people through Ouija boards. I have a great battle scene and get pretty messy J

 

Both Cleric and Teeth of the Beasts were produced by Red Scream Films. What can you tell us about that company?

 

Well Cleric will actually be release under Calabi-Yau LLC, but Red Scream is the parent company. They do a lot of indie horror/sci-fi productions. Mostly everything is shot in Buffalo, NY where they are located.

 

You also played the lead in the recently released False Face. Could you talk about that one for a bit?

 


I play the girlfriend of the lead actor who has a gambling problem. When a friend of his hooks him up with a shady organization to help him out, he doesnít follow their rules and things start to go very badly - for me too! People disappear, people follow one another Ö Itís a suspense thriller about wondering who you can trust.

 

The movie that put you on the map though, at least concerning the horror genre, was Ghostwatcher 2, which as far as I know was also your first lead role ever. A few words about that one?

 

Iíve had a couple of other parts up until that point, but it was my first lead. I play the older sister of a girl who hears voices. We hire The Ghostwatcher to find out who the voices are and what they want. It is also kind of a thriller.

 

You had a very small role in Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds. How does working in indie horror differ from working on multi-million Dollar movies?

 

It takes so much longer. Thereís money being wasted for no reason. Too many people stand around for no reason, and there are 100s of extras, 100s of takes, for nothing honestly. You can do as much with 40 takes as you can with 10. The thing about indie film is that the actors seem to try harder. If I were getting paid $100,000 I would make sure to NOT forget the damned lines!

 

Any films I have forgotten you'd like to talk about?

 

Searching for Bobby D. It was a comedy in which I had a day player role. I play a hotel clerk that doesnít take too well to some wannabe mobsters. That came out in 2005.

 

Any future projects you'd like to talk about?

 

By the time you read this I will have just shot a music video for a band called The Pushrods. I booked a part in a comedy shooting soon and Iím on hold for 2 features also shooting in the fall. Iím co-writing Cleric 2 and a graphic novel. I also signed with a PR firm recently to promote my new Vampyre video diary. They are handling everything, so Iím not sure where Iíll be or what Iíll be doing exactly from now until October, but I can promise it will be interesting!

 

You have also done quite some television. What can you tell us about your TV-work?

 

TV work is much more intense because itís faster paced. Even 14 hrs on a set for one episode is still faster than most big films. I have more tv credits than anything else because (unless youíre a contract actor) there is less of a commitment. Itís easier to do a day player than commit to 3 months for a play.

 

Most of the films you made are horror flicks. Was this a conscious choice, and is horror a genre especially dear to you?

 

No. It just kind of happened. Friends hooked me up with the guys from False Face, which was after Ghostwatcher 2. Then I was in Vampirella and Fangoria magazines. After that I kind of became known in the genre and people starting asking me to look at their scripts. Honestly, I didnít grow up in love with the horror genre. I have nothing against it, of course (LOL), but I didnít make it a goal to go right into that genre. Things just started to snowball in that direction. I am, however, a huge Sci-Fi geek!

 

Women in horror films are quickly labelled Scream Queens. Is this label at all bothering you?

 

It did at first because I thought it would pigeon hole me. But you make your own destiny. I took roles that had nothing to do with horror, and I quickly proved that I can do anything. Now itís one way to describe me, but it no longer defines me.

 

Besides movies, you have also done quite some work on the stage. Would you like to elaborate on your stage work for a bit?

 

I have done comedy plays like The Man Who Came to Dinner and classics like Uncle Vanya and The Tempest. Playwrights like Chekhov and Shakespeare are great opportunities to really dive into the character study. I enjoy theatre because it really helps me with things like diction, volume and thinking on my feet. Improv is also great way to hone in on my skill.

 

What do you prefer, acting in front of the camera or on stage?

 

I prefer film. I think you can be more creative there. Itís also difficult if someone messes up, you donít need to think fast and save the production. I do theatre to stay sharp. Most of it currently, however, is musicals and that limits my work since I donít sing.

 

How did you get into acting in the first place, and how did you make it into the movies?

 

I did pageants when I was a kid. I started role playing D&D when I was about 13 (yes Iím a real nerd, lol!) and I begged my mom to let me take acting classes. After I lost some weight I started modeling, and booked 2 commercials. I got into the movies just by auditioning. Eventually, I started getting parts.

 

Besides acting you have also been working as a model for I don't know how long. Would you like to talk about that aspect of your career, and has modelling in any way prepared you for your acting assignments?

 

Iíve been a model almost as long, if not longer. I started when I was in my early teens. It helped in acting because you canít just stand there. Even if youíre drop dead gorgeous you have to sell the ad. You have to look a certain way, have different facial expressions, and know how to do different poses so you donít look boring. You also have to know what youíre selling. If youíre modeling lingerie then you have to look sexy - not as if you would rather be anywhere else than where you are.

 

In your resumť I read you were Playboy's Employee of the Months in April 2006. You simply have to say  a few words about that achievement of yours!

 

It is an achievement. Iíd been submitting for 5 years up to that point. They are the opposite of indie films in that you canít be in it simply because you want to. They donít take everyone who submits (they get 1000s of submissions a day!), so I felt honored.

 

Your resumť also lists among your special skills Mortuary Studies (Embalming, Funeral Planning, Cosmetology & Restorative Art). Could you please elaborate on these skills of yours?

 

I went to college because thatís what I thought you were supposed to do after high school. I had always been into the Occult and been a Vampyre in my heart, so I was naturally drawn toward the funeral studies. I went to mortuary school and worked in 2 different funeral homes doing removals, makeup, dressing and yes, embalming. It didnít scare me or freak me out or anything. I just wasnít happy because I wasnít acting.

 

Any other special talents you'd like to mention?

 

Not before dinner and a movie ;) Seriously, I am not your typical girl. Even though I look very mainstream (due to having a mainstream career in addition to a Scream Queen one) Iíve been into the Goth and Vampyre scenes since I was a teenager.

Your favourite films?

 

All the Harry Potter movies, anything by Tim Burton, Labyrinth, Blade Runner, A Beautiful Mind, American Beauty, Star Trek: First Contact to name a few.

 

And of course, some films you really deplored?

 

Eragon was pretty bad. Hostel was scary, but after that it became nothing more than torture porn. Enough with the damned Saw movies already! Meet the Spartans.

 

Anything else you'd like to talk about that I have simply forgotten to ask?

 

Wearing all black doesn't make you Goth; putting fake teeth in your mouth doesnít make you a Vampyre. Get over it. 

What Iím trying to say is, let your appearance be an expression of you, but donít let it define who you are. Donít judge a book by its cover, and donít let others judge you by yours.

And can I just tell people to stop doing photo shoots in a graveyard - thatís SO over. Ok, thatís it ;)

 

Thanks for the interview!
