Your upcoming movie Ayla - in a few words, what will it be about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

I play the title character - Ayla - who is a memory to her brother. Ayla died when he was young and he grows up wondering what she would have been like and obsessing about her. He finds a way to bring her back to life and he's not sure entirely who or what he's brought back into this world. Am I his sister's soul? Or something much darker...? 

 

How do you prepare for your role, and what will you draw upon to bring her to life?

 

This is going to be dialog light and movement heavy. I'm not going to lie, I LOVE roles like this, since my background is as a dancer. Body language is my first language and my favourite dialect to communicate in. I think with this strength I have in my non verbal communications that I can bring something unusual and unsettling to the table.

 

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

 

Elias [Elias interview - click here] initially contacted me and offered to let me read the script. It's such an interesting piece, spanning body horror, supernatural and character study that I read the whole thing in the bathtub and didn't notice that the water was ice cold and I was a giant prune when I was done. I was disturbed and enchanted by this tortured character.

 

Having made quite a name of yourself in the horror genre, to what extent could you identify with the film's approach to horror?

 

I think the 'what ifs' of the human mind are some of the worst torture we inflict on ourselves. The probability analysis we do in our heads can border on obsessive and this illustrates this in the extreme. I find this a subject and story I've not had a chance to tell yet, and it's like a melancholy fairy tale almost, not unlike the ones I used to gravitate towards as a child, so to play it out of a lager audience is very appealing to me.

 

What can you tell us about your director Elias [Elias interview - click here], and how closely do the two of you work together during preparations?

 

Elias has been great! I love his enthusiasm for this project and I'm flattered and excited to work on it. I'm hoping he lets me put some music on and do some movement while he shouts out direction so I can show him some quirks and physical movements I have for Ayla.

 

From what I know, the film's still in its fundraising stages as we speak - are you in any way involved in the fundraising efforts, and any idea what the schedule is yet?

 

The Kickstarter was launched this week! I'm hoping people will see this and be intrigued enough to help back this strange and lovely story. I've contributed a few perks, but I have faith people will want to see a unique story and forgo their morning $5 latte and maybe throw us a few bones here and there... https://www.kickstarter.com/
