|I want to hear about your role as Jenny
in the upcoming 'Return of the Living
Dead 5: Rave to the Grave'.
like all heroines in movies of this particular
genre, Jenny is just a nice girl who finds
herself in the trenches of a Zombie pandemic.
you a fan of zombie cinema?
Yes. However, only recently have I fully
appreciated the specific aesthetic of
the genre. I hoped the film would actually
give me some more cred with my hardcore Zombie
also want to hear about your upcoming part as
Wendy in the thriller 'Fear Itself'
starring Tom Sizemore.
Well, FEAR ITSELF is a thriller I shot
last spring. In it I play one of two
sisters that end up having a twisted
history/relationship with Mr.
Sizemore. There are MANY twists. It was
exhausting both physically and emotionally to
shoot. That being said, I am extremely proud of
the work that was done. Tom is an incredibly
talented actor whom I feel I learned a great deal
played Lenna in a short film version of Poe's 'The
Raven' (2004). I know you are a
big literature fan so was it an added rush to be
involved in making a classic come alive?
yes, especially since I was the one who wrote the
line about "We live together like
children..." I had so much fun with that.
Lenna as we depicted her was sort of an icy
creature. I love playing mean people! It is just
such a departure from the roles I am typically
offered. When people see the blonde hair, you
immediately become the "girl next

(Not a Pretty Girl), you speak 3
languages, you also paint, have acted in several
films, were a regular on a series,
etc. As a creative artist what do
you consider your finest accomplishment and what
in your creative horizon looks to challenge that?
accomplishment in my opinion is being able to
rebound from all the roles I bled for and didn't
get. I am proud of the things I have done. I just
think my lessons this lifetime are to be ok with
the things I haven't. I want to do it all. I
and I want to do it right now. I am learning
you think your creativity all comes from the
same place --- only it merely takes different
forms of _expression? If so do you have an
idea as to the source of it?
My creativity was most likely born out of
the coupling of a tumultuous childhood with an
overwhelming imagination. I think a lot of the
things I write, paint, or say as someone else are
things I wish I had the courage/ audacity to say
in my real life.

back to the three films I watched incessantly as
a kid. None are truly scary. (p.s.) they all
kind of suck but that is what you have to
love about them. ONCE BITTEN, CLUE, and
ROCKY HORROR, and as a bonus LEGEND OF BILLIE

guess) Come on, any kid who grew up in front

fairly odd questions by fans...would you care to
share the strangest one? (And it can't be
one from this interview!)

always dreamed of, or spend the summer touring
