|Natalie, why not start the racks and razors
readers off with a visual and describe the room
where you are answering these questions?
I'm at a little
internet cafe in Union Square.. very tired from a
day full of go see's and castings so it finally
feels good to sit down!
One of your
recent horror films was 'Blood Pond' for
Dale May Productions. How did you go about
getting cast in the role of Lara?
came across the casting and noticed the role was
for an actress with a Russian accent, which I
couldn't do at the time. A few days before the
casting I rented terminal with Tom Hanks and
really studied the way he pronounced his words
and that helped me get the part of Lara. I also
had to do alot of screaming and crying at that
audition. They had me read a very intense scene
from the script which was great because I love
roles where I can emotionally really get into a
character. That was an interesting shoot because
we were out in the middle of nowhere in Snowshoe,
PA shooting this horror film. Very very freaky
but I had a blast!
Heart Out' is such a promising title.
Can you give me a little plot synopsis teaser
that will make this Savage Roses Production
irresistable to Racks and Razors readers?
Heart Out' is a love story based on a shy,
insecure guy falling for a girl who has a
secret.. She eats people. In the film I was one
of her victims. She brought me home for her and
the male lead and instead of us have a threesome
(which is what my character thinks is going to
happen) she ends up eating me alive. This film is
filled with horror and alot of sex appeal.
I've seen a clip
of 'Subject 87' where you have
past life memories. It looks really interesting,
can you tell me a little bit about that project?
87 is a film about people being brought back to
life from the dead. It really is a very crazy
plot. There is undreground testing going on where
my charachter and a few other test subjects are
brought back to life. My character had a horrible
traggic death and when she remembers her death
she wants to die again. Its emotional but yet has
thrill to it.
Do you believe
that we have lived previous lives?
Yes I do.
Yeah, I find that whole
subject fascinating, anyway...Tell me about your
role as Sharon in 'Bikini Bloodbath 2'.
Should we be very afraid?
Bloodbath' is a comedy/horror. It was so much fun
to shoot! My character is the dumb ditzy best
friend of the female lead. It is basically about
a killer chef going around a campus killing
college kids. My character is obssessed with her
appearance to the point where it becomes a joke
throughout the whole film.
Looking back on
your youth does any incident make you smile and
think, "Yeah, that little girl was destined
to grow up to be a Scream Queen".
I have always been acting since I was a little
girl and I knew when I grew up that I would
become an actress. I have always loved horror
films. Me and my best friend in middle school
used to rent them every weekend. I remember
thinking " I want to do this one day "
So if a young
lady came up to you and asked for advice and tips
about breaking into the independent horror scene
what are some of the things you would say to her?
for it! You only live once and you gotta pursue
every dream you have! Work hard at it and it will
come to you.
Do you have any
other projects in the immediate future that you
would like to tell our readers about?
currently working on an online action series
called 'Vixens of Virtue' which will begin
production in 2007. Im pretty psyched about it
because I get to play a superhero chick who kicks
