How did you get in to the horror industry?
I’ve always been a fan of horror films from a young age. I’ve also been a fan of the film industry and have always wanted to act. Between my love for the genre and my desire to act, it just fell into place. It was a very natural feel and something I love very much.
As a horror actress what’s been the toughest thing you’ve had to deal with?
I don’t do nudity. You find a lot of that in horror and I always have to turn down roles because I won’t do it. There’s always that pressure to do it. I don’t think less of anyone who does those roles. It’s just not personally for me. I’ve had to turn down quite a few roles because of it and it is tough because they are amazing roles. I just can’t get into doing the nudity. Implied nudity isn’t a big deal. No one is seeing anything. I guess I’m still shy in that aspect haha
What kind of horror films do you prefer and why?
This is a hard question. I typically love horror that borders thriller and suspense. Intricate plots that have depth to them. I love vampire and occult themed horror films too. Lost Boys is my all time favorite of vampire films. I like to feel there’s a motive and sense behind the story. Although there’s nothing wrong with a good slasher from time to time.
If you could pick any kind of horror role to play what would you want to do?
I would love to do something like Resident Evil or Underworld. Something with a strong female character who is just the epitome of a total badass. I love those types of roles.
What do you got coming up?
I’m branching out from horror currently into sci-fi but horror will always be my first love. I’m preparing to film a series called ” The Strange & Mysterious Life of Jackson Bean ” which I’m super excited about starting. I can’t say too much about it other than it will be amazing.
