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

 

The film is about a couple of American girls who go trekking in the beautiful Scotland and all is good until they encounter some dodgy characters and things go horribly wrong. I had the role of Jess who is a character that goes on quite the journey. Jess is the sort of character that doesnít often live on the wild side, and the journey she embarks on definitely pulls her out of her comfort zone in which she must find her strength.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Michaela Longden can we find in Jess?

 

I am actually quite the opposite of Jess in many ways, at the start she is very regimented and controlled whereas I have always been a little wild and always up for doing something spontaneous. That was one thing that drew me into the character though that she was very different to me. A lot of the characters Iíve played in the past have been very similar to me so that posed a new challenge. As the film goes on though Jess finds so much strength, confidence and bravery and I felt that I could connect with that part of her so much more - I definitely have more fire to my belly!

 


With When Darkness Falls being a mostly outdoors movie, would you at all call yourself an outdoorsy person?

 

Oh yes, I am always going out on a hike. Whilst filming I was actually the one everyone thought was bonkers because whilst they were all catching up on sleep from the night shoot I would be up early to go for a hike. The location was so so beautiful I couldnít not! I am at peace when I am outdoors! I love nature, it is my ideal day going for a hike and then a Sunday dinner.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place, and what drew you to it?

 

I applied on a casting page, and what really drew me into it was that I would get to go and film in Scotland! It was filmed during Covid and for me this was such a highlight of my Covid experience. Obviously actors suffered tremendously in lockdown, so for me this gave me hope that potentially all was not lost and people were still making movies. The people in the project also drew me into it as soon as I met the crew and cast I knew I wanted to be a part of it. It was such a wonderful experience the team were so welcoming and incredible to work with.

 

To what extent could you itentify with When Darkness Falls' approach to the thriller genre?

 

It has lots of twists and turns along the way, and I think the story is really strong in that way. You never know whatís coming.

 

What can you tell us about When Darkness Falls' director Nathan Shepka [Nathan Shepka interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

Nathan is a wonderful director and fabulous to have around on set as heís absolutely hilarious. He gives you total freedom of expression and is always open for discussion. He is so easy to work with too. He wants his actors to get involved and collaborate and really tries to make them feel comfortable. He was even coming to me for acting advice as he knew I was a screen acting teacher, which really shows how grounded he is!

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

The set atmosphere was very very calm. Even at 4am in the freezing cold with blood running down my face everyone was in high spirits.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I have just finished filming the lead role of Margot in Fowler Mediaís ghost horror The Ghost Within. I am super excited about this project as the script is insane. This was one of my most challenging roles to date as Margot really does go through a lot during the film, so it was great to be given the opportunity to be cast as her.
