Your new movie The
Video Dead - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you
tell us about your character in it?
about video nasties – remember those from the eighties? A man buys a
video nasty and ends up diving into insanity after watching. I play a nun,
trying to get the man to repent – definitely no typecasting in this one,
What did you draw
upon to bring your character to life, and since you're playing a nun, how
hard or easy was it to tap into that mindset even?
just trying to get him to do the right thing so it’s about morality, and
so I looked at my own morals to tap into where her thinking was coming
did you get involved with the project in the first place?
worked with Vincent Gallagher before on a previous project and so when he
was casting this one, he contacted me to see if I’d be willing to play
what extent could you identify with The
Video Dead's brand of horror? And since the film's about video
nasties in a roundabout sort of way, what's your take on those?
be honest, it’s not my usual style of horror – I’m more of a vampire
lover than the video nasty horror. This doesn’t put me off being part of
remember them from the eighties, but not really something I would watch. I
was probably more mainstream horror back then. I think if you saw them now
though, they wouldn’t be classed as nasties – just the usual brand of
slasher/blood and guts type horror we see today.
can you tell us about The
Video Dead's director Vincent Gallagher, and what was your
I said, I’d worked with Vince on a previous project so when he asked me
to work with him on this project I was happy to help out. He’s a great
director to work with, professional and knows what he wants from a shoot.
Do talk about the shoot as such, and
the on-set atmosphere?
shoot was really quick for my scene. It was a great day though –
everyone was there to get the job done as quick as possible – time is
money after all. The atmosphere was great and so welcoming. I’d happily
work with them all again.
Any future projects you'd like to
have a few short films in the pipeline with my acting coach, Christopher
Torretto [Chris Torretto
interview - click here], that we’re hoping to get made either before Christmas or right
after the New Year – 2020 hasn’t been the best for filming so we’ve
had some setbacks. I’m itching to get back on set so hopefully there
won’t be any more and we can get these films made and out to festivals
Feeling lucky ?
any of my partnershops yourself
for more, better results ?
