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

 

Don’t really want to give away too much, as it would spoil the film but it’s basically about a couple going to view a new house & what happens during that viewing.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Sharon Spink can we find in Sam?

 

Sam is the posh side of me – she has money, first-time buyers don’t buy a huge detached house unless they have money now do they? I grew up in a middle class family so used that as a basis but felt she was slightly posher than that so gave her status, money & ambition, which reflects the direction I want to take.

 

You've made up the story for The Viewing with your co-stars and your director Sebastian Roberts [Sebastian Roberts interview - click here], right? So what can you tell us about the creative process there?

 

Yeah that was a fun process; the genre was easy – most of us like horror in one form or another. The general idea came to us quite quickly - having an empty house available helped with that too. Having tried a few ideas that didn’t work we eventually came up with the idea of a house viewing with a twist.

 

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

 

We all work really well together so had a fun evening filming this. Filming only took about 3 hours & although we stayed professional we still had great fun making the film, especially when some of the sfx bits didn’t quite go as planned.

 

Another new film of yours is Cured - so what's that one about, and who do you play?

 

Cured is a bitter-sweet story really. I play Isabelle the leader of the brethren and she has seen the atrocities going on in the outside world and feels that she has no option but to take matters into her own hands to protect the brethren from them.

 

Cured

Again, what did you draw upon to bring your character to life?

 

Isabelle was a tougher character to create – she is caring but has a darker side to her too. She has to be strong to be able to do what she does & to lead the brethren but she’s also a mum to Ronald so has that caring, nurturing side to her. She reminded me of the old ladies you see going to church on a Sunday – stern looking; I remember seeing them as a child and being quite daunted by them.

 

You also executive-produced Cured, right? So what were the challenges there?

 

Yeah – this was a challenge because it wasn’t something I’d done before but I had a great director in Sebastian Roberts [Sebastian Roberts interview - click here] and we just discussed what we needed. It’s really all about being organised. I think the hardest part & I assume it’s true of a lot of films, is being able to find a time when everyone was available, especially when you have younger actors involved – you have to fit round school etc. for them. Also I was make-up artist so the sfx was a challenge – I’d not done anything like that before either; amazing what you can do with latex & a bit of tissue.

 

What can you tell us about that actual shoot then?

 

The main shoot was done at Tingley Methodist Church, which our DoP, Cameron Prudames, had arranged. Everyone involved was amazing, so professional – we couldn’t have asked for a better shoot.

 

Cured

Both The Viewing and Cured were directed by Sebastian Roberts - so do talk about him for a bit, and what was working with him like?

 

Working with Sebastian is brilliant. I’ve known him for about two and a half years now and worked really closely with him, in our acting classes at Northern Star Actingwww.northernstaracting.co.uk/ – he’s not just a great director but a great actor too. He comes up with some very clever ideas and knows exactly what he wants from a film. He’s easy-going and very laid back too, making filming day feel like you’re not working. I’m sure he’ll go far with whichever field he chooses.

 

With both The Viewing and Cured being of the horror variety - is that a genre at all dear to you?

 

It’s a strange one – I love acting in horror films but I don’t watch much horror at all because I do get scared easily by them, unless it’s a vampire film; Interview With The Vampire is one of my favourite films, as is Gary Oldman’s version of Dracula. I tend to watch more comedy/romance type films, although I am a huge fan of Game Of Thrones and would love to appear in that or maybe a spin off from the show.

 

Other current or future projects you'd like to share?

 

I’ve just completed a couple of short films: Fine – which covers the tricky subject of suicide, self-harm & eating disorders, where I play a psychiatrist – and Clouds, which is about a young man growing up with ADHD and I get to play his teacher.

 

Future projects coming up – I have two feature films to shoot this year, one is Unseen Tears for Leviahawk Films & the other is The Hunters with Chris Dudley [Chris Dudley interview - click here] from Dudley Entertainment, where I play a detective. I’m also writing my first short film, which will star Sebastian Roberts [Sebastian Roberts interview - click here], as my brother, so I have a busy but fun year ahead.
