Horror Actress: Robin Sydney
When you were a kid what was the movie that scared you the most?
I watched it with my friends in the woods whenever she came on the tv I closed my eyes and the images and sounds of my friends screaming filled my mind. I was scared for 2 months after at least. Then I was up for the remake The Excorcism of Emily Rose and I was so scared to book it because of the night mares and I got up to second choice. Wow what a scary movie!
How did you get in to the horror industry?
I auditioned. The first movie I booked was The Lost
What is the hardest lesson you’ve had to learn in the industry?
That it doesn’t matter if you book the part. Just do your best, have fun, and make a difference.
