Victoria, why don't you start us off with a
visual and describe the room or place where you
are answering these questions?
It's late at night
after a busy day and I am in my office in my
apartment in Los Angeles. I wish I could say I
was outside by my pool and describe to you a very
quaint setting - but not really! Sorry!
always been a fan of horror?
childhood - early teens. My mother never let us
watch scary films so it would always be at
sleepovers and I remember always pushing to watch
the scariest and being REALLY scared!
Tell me how your
first big horror role in 2008's 'The Zombie
Diaries' came about?
I had just
finished doing a musical in London and it was my
first audition for a feature film. I was nervous,
because I had no idea what to expect... We had
done on-camera training at college but I have
never put it into practice... They were very nice
but I really didn't expect to get the part and it
was a big surprise!
What was the best
part about making the film?
The final scene.
I really liked being the sole survivor!
diaries. I've also heard you are very fond of
writing. What sort of things do you like to
As much as time
allows I try and write in my journal everyday. It
helps me focus and put life into perspective at
times. It's my time alone and no one has ever
read it but me! Oh and of course I write songs. I
don't specifically sit down to write a song
though... they just come when they come and I
make sure to write down my ideas then and there.
I am very anxious
to talk to you about your upcoming role as Mina
Harker in 'Dracula Reborn' by producer/director
Ray Haboush ('Last House on the Left'). I've
heard the story is going to be modernized and set
in LA. Can you give me any more details about the
Well firstly my
character, although 'Mina' in the classic is
referred to in a more up-to-date manner as
'Lina'. It is set in modern day LA. We filmed in
Malibu, Downtown and on a stage set-up in Van
Nuys. Let's just say the Vampire wears Armani,
talks on a cell phone and gets driven around in a
What about LA do
you think would attract a vampire of Dracula's
Downtown LA blood
is pretty simple to get a hold of if required in
moderately large quantity and Malibu is a great
place to set up house!
What's the best
part about playing Mina?
There is a great
scene when I start to turn and the only blood I
can find at a push is the family dog... I
couldn't wait to do that scene.
So speaking of
vampires in Hollywood...if you could sink fangs
into anyone in that town and make them your
immortal lover who would the lucky person be?
Orlando Bloom and Brad Pitt (neck and neck)
And of course I
must hear about the experience of performing for
the Queen of England. You're the first person (I
think) who has had that distinction.
I was in my last
year of college and a number of us from my year
were requested to perform at the Queen's Golden
Jubilee. It was an amazing experience to see the
crowds of people waving flags... I will never
Do you have any
other upcoming projects you would like the
racksandrazors.com readers to know about?
It is time for me
to record some of my music now so that is my next
werewolves, vampires, witches, creatures, aliens,
psychos --- what does it for you horrorwise
Victoria and why?
VAMPIRE for sure.
Sensual and forbidden. Every girl wants what she
shouldn\rquote t have sometimes...
What was the
first movie you saw that scared the shit out of
'IT' ... and
shortly after 'Silence of the Lambs'
Do you have a
horror dream role?
I always wanted
Jodie Foster's role in 'Silence of the Lambs'
actually. Something similar to that...
pulling the car into the Victoria Summer Drive
In. What three horror flicks are on the triple
bill for tonight and what goodies are they going
to be serving up at the concession stand?
Food first... I
LOVE dark chocolate and popcorn. And I would have
to say 'IT', 'Silence of the Lambs' and 'Jaws'!
What is the best
Halloween costume you ever had?
celebrate it too much in England! I used to go
trick or treating in my school uniform!
Do you have any
collections, obsessions, or true loves?\par
\b\par Obsessively tidy... it's soooo boring!!
What scares you
in real life?
meeting Ray, I wanted to watch 'Last House on the
Left' which I had missed out on watching. I was
soooo scared I had to keep making lots of cups of
tea in the kitchen. But to answer your question,
in real life, not much... I'm a tough chick
mainly but I have my moments... I worry for the
safety and well being of my mother and father
mostly. My family are very important to me!
