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

 

Children of Sin is about two siblings, Emma and Jackson, who are sent to a religious retreat for teens and young adults by their soon-to-be stepfather to be cleansed of the sinning ways. Eventually, they find out the retreat has a different way of cleaning those who enter the doors. As a teenager, Jackson is slowly trying to figure out who he is. He definitely has a genuine connection with his sister even though they both think completely different about certain things.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Lewis Hines can we find in Jackson?

 

I can definitely say that this was one of my most challenging roles to date. Reason being is because Lewis and Jackson are very different. I love being different. Jackson is more naÔve whereas Lewis is more of a leader. As a performer, I love doing things that are outside of my natural element, and this was definitely outside and I loved EVERY second of it.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place, and what drew you to the movie's subject matter?

 

I found the casting call on Facebook. I read the plot and it seemed really interesting. I auditioned for three roles and I felt really confident. Some time after that, the writer/director/producer Chris Moore [Chris Moore interview - click here], emailed me saying ďI just wanted to let you know that you should clear your schedule in June, because Iíd love to have you aboard.Ē When I read that, I was beyond excited. Four days later, he cast me as Jackson, and that was the icing on the cake. I first read the script and I said, ďWow! This is crazy.Ē The plot, itself, sold me. I have never heard the words ďreligiousĒ and ďhorrorĒ in the same sentence before finding this project. I love things that different and not normal. Normal is boring and this was far from normal.

 

What can you tell us about Children of Sin's director Chris Moore, and what was your collaboration like?

 

He was so easy and incredible to work with. He was never rude, overbearing, controlling, none of that. He was really chill and thatís what made the process so much fun. One thing that really stood out to me about him was that he already knew how he wanted to shoot the scenes. You donít find that very often. He gave us a lot of freedom to really play with and explore our characters within the space. I told him if he has any other projects under his belt, do not hesitate to hit me up! I will be there in a heartbeat!

 

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

 

You know that feeling when you meet someone for the first time and then it feels like yíall have known each other for years? That was the exact feeling I got when I walked on set the first day. Everyone was so open and we became really close really fast. I kid you not, after we finished filming a scene on the third day of filming, the other four castmates and I went to the master bedroom and cuddled in one of the beds. Thatís how close and comfortable we became with each other in that short amount of time. To this day, the cast and I are still very close. We have our own Children of Sin group chat and weíre checking up on each other.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I have some short films coming out soon. They are Just Say That, The Height of the Sun, and A Unspoken Truth. Iím currently in production of a sci-fi/hero film titled A Hero Reborn. Iím also in rehearsals for a play called Almost, Maine out of Pearl Community Theatre which runs from April 21-24. Be on the look-out for these projects Iím beyond grateful to be a part of.

 

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

 

Ever since I was a kid, Iíve wanted to be an actor. I remember watching multiple TV shows and movies and then reciting them back word for word perfectly. Iím pretty sure I annoyed my family a lot by doing that, but I loved it. I didnít start getting heavy into theatre until college. I received my BA in Theatre from Belhaven University. Ever since then Iíve been finding different opportunities and projects and just doing what I love.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Children of Sin?

 

Prior to Children of Sin, I was a part of a show called Boots and Trenches. It never got picked up, but it was still a fun experience. I was an extra in the ABC limited series Women of the Movement. I was also a series regular in a web series called Mimi: Blood Thicker Than Water, which is currently on YouTube.

 

How would you describe yourself as an actor?

 

Thatís a tough one. Honestly, Iím still trying to figure that out. I just know I want to do as many projects as I can, whether itís film or theatre. I just love the craft so much. Well, I guess I can describe myself in one word: HUNGRY!

 

Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?

 

As a kid, I really admired Elijah Kelley who played Seaweed J. Stubbs in Hairspray (2007). He is truly underrated. To this day, I still admire him. As I got older, I really started to admire Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Hugh Jackman, Taraji P. Henson, and Jeremy Pope. Their versatility, commitment, and work ethics are what motivates me to better my craft as a young artist. Theyíre not known for just one particular style of performing, theyíve done just about everything.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Some of my absolute favorite movies are Fences, Hairspray (2007), In The Heights, The Breakfast Club, and This Christmas, just to name a few. Each one showcases a level love and acceptance, two things I value very much.

 

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

 

The one movie I absolutely canít stand is The Last Airbender. As a huge fan of the series Avatar: The Last Airbender, the 2010 movie was a huge disappointment. They were white-washed and ethnically divided, the acting was terrible, and I hate that they excluded many important and crucial moments from the show. I said it!!
