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

 

Ash and Bone is about a newly married couple that is trying to start a new life together and build a bridge with the husbandís rebellious teen Cassie. Cassie tests boundaries and finds herself in a situation that takes the viewer for a wild ride.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Kaiti Wallen can we find in Sarah?

 

Well Sarah is the exact opposite of me. Sarah is passive aggressive about things where I would put my foot down. So I had to start thinking of other people in and around me to draw on.

 

To what extent could you identify with Ash and Bone's approach to horror?

 

I have a love/hate relationship with horror films. Iím not crazy about so much gore with little substance to the characters. I love that Ash and Bone takes you just enough to the edge and allows you to use your imagination in certain ways but still pushes the action all the way.

 


You also helped producing Ash and Bone - so what were the challenges to bring the movie to the screen from a production point of view?

 

We are a pretty well oiled machine at this point, and each person in the producing team knows what they are good at and bring what they can to the table. Every project has its challenges and we do what we can to learn and grow. A challenge for us on this project was working through Covid getting this completed.

 

What can you tell us about your collaboration with your director (and husband) Harley Wallen [Harley Wallen interview - click here] on Ash and Bone?

 

Harley and I started doing this together when we decided on jumping into filmmaking. I have watched him grow and I respect him so much as a director and trust what he says. He is an actor first and understands processes and allows you enough freedom to bring your creative touch to the character without hijacking the story.

 

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

 

The atmosphere was easy-going yet professional. Do your job and enjoy yourself. We have a film family we can rely on to do their part and make every film the best that we can with all the skillsets we have. We all have our own process, and our cast and crew did their best to respect that so we can all give our best, itís an environment weíve cultivated over time.

 

Kaiti with Harley Wallen

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Yes, definitely would love to talk about to you about Beneath Us All. It is a multi-layered suspense horror vampire saga thatís a pretty amazing tale.

 

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

 

My sister (Kelly Parker) was going to school for filmmaking when I was a kid. She would come back home over the summers and would take me under her wing when she was working on projects for school. I was able to get a peak of the process of producing from auditions to being on set helping and watching her through the editing process up to the final result. I was at awe. One project I was the lead character and had to also help behind scenes. I loved it, but I never thought I could make a career out of it until I started dating Harley.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Ash and Bone?

 

Oh wow thatís a big questionÖ I guess I just love giving myself to a role and taking the journey as them a bit, and itís pretty amazing but it allows me a different perspective on myself and I learn a lot... itís been great therapy!

 

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

 

I have merged ideologies from the greats such as Meisner & Stanislavsky. I use journaling as my characters, I try digging deep enough that Iím consistent as each character I play. I use music to get out of my head and into their head, but much varies to some degrees with each character.

I find inspiration not just in the big names and the superstars but sometimes in my scene partners - but I love Natalie Portman & Emma Stone, and lately Iíve really admired Lady Gaga for her work but the greats such as Glenn Close are always near & dear to me!

 

Your favourite movies?

 

I love just about every genre but my top would be psychological thriller. Devil's Advocate, Inception, to Thereís Something About Mary, Ten Things I Hate About You, etc

 

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

 

The Hateful Eight. Donít get me wrong, there are some things that are intriguing about it, but I donít like most of the choices.
