Brian: Was acting something that you
always wanted to do or was it just a natural
progression from your career as a model?
plan was to be a dentist! I kind of just fell
into modeling and found it was a great way to pay
the bills. But, the moment I tried acting I knew
I wanted to do it for the rest of my life. So, I
left UCLA, pre-med, and committed full time to
acting. I moved to New York to study. I found HB
Studios and studied with William Hickey. I
modeled only to support my acting. In those days
I never even told people I was a model, but now I
am more than proud of my modeling career and I
want to do that for the rest of my life too!
You are officially one of my favorite people in
the world because you appeared on 'Barnaby
Jones'. That was my ultimate favorite
show as a kid. Do you have any fond recollections
from your experiences on that set?
remember that the food was really good and Buddy
Ebsen was very tall!
I love the strength and professionalism that you
displayed as Nurse Jill. Although I adore Ana
Alicia and Pamela Susan Shoop, I definitely
thought that yours was the most believable
portrayal. You also played "Warrior
Housewive" in 'Looker'
another one of my childhood favorites. Do you
find you specialize in playing strong women? And
- any neat thoughts about your 'Looker'
Thanks for the compliment; however, I don't
usually approach a character as strong or not
strong. I am concerned with being truthful to the
story and finding the reality of my character
through the circumstances she is in. 'Looker'
wasn't my first movie, but many things
were still new to me. I drove onto the lot and
was directed to the sound stage. As I approached
the big door of the stage, I was feeling a little
intimidated because everything was already in
full swing with the shoot and there were people,
busy people, everywhere! Suddenly, from seemingly
nowhere, a really nice security guard appeared
and asked me if I needed some help. I said that I
was looking for the assistant director to check
in. He took me by the hand and said, right this
way, young lady. He delivered me to the right
place and with a nod to the AD and a twinkle in
his eye, he left me there. Later, I realized it
wasn't the studio guard who had rescued me, but,
Albert Finney in his guard costume for the chase
scene! What a fun, sweet man!
I find 'Halloween 2' to be
creepy and incredibly well photographed. The
set-ups to the killings are thought out and
spooky, also. It is perhaps not the classic that
the original was, but I still feel it is a strong
entry in the horror movie sweepstakes. Yet - it
has been thoroughly panned by many. Do you have
any thoughts about or responses to that?
can't give it a critique. I'm way too close to
it! I'm just happy people still enjoy it!
I am sure that you have answered questions about
'Halloween 2' until you were
blue in the face. Is there anything that you
would like to say about your involvement in the
series that hasn't been touched on a lot or would
you, simply, like to offer your feelings on its
incredible popularity, in general?
Well, I feel blessed to have been a part of it.
None of us had any idea what would become of our
little project, but I know we are all humbled by
the endurance of its popularity, despite the
march of time and jaundiced eye of the critic.
You've done a lot of episodic work and have
appeared in a handful of films. Do you have a
favorite role among the many that you have done?
I loved playing the journalist in 'Sports
silly one! If someone could give you the perfect
gift - what would it be?
I know it's asking a lot, but the perfect gift
would be the power to heal people and animals.
Or, maybe, a nice bottle of Merlot!
Finally, any last thoughts or future
plans that you would like your fans to know
I invite my fans to check out my paintings. I've
got cards, mugs, posters, and clothing and lots
more, all with my art. They can find my
paintings, among other info and photos from Hall
2 on my website, www.TawnyMoyer.com . I want my fans to know
that I appreciate and feel blessed by them.
Though they may be in the dark, in their seats,
and I may be up on the screen, with Michael
Myers, I hope and trust that we will all share
many, many more scary, Halloween nights together!
