Probably won’t make it to the states, so here’s the interview for my English speaking fans!
1. The Toy Box has interesting storyline, can you tell me how far the work on the film is and are you satisfied with your role in it?
I have a brief cameo in the film and it was a challenging and exciting role to portray. Honestly, I am not sure of the status of the movie and whether or not it will be released. I did have the chance to work with Jason Swarr who filmed my scenes and he created an amazing acting reel for me. You can view it here- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBpLoGL5OjA
2. Tell me something about In a Spiral State and something about the role of Marlena. What was your first reaction when you read the script?
Ramzi Abed is a friend and interesting director. He gave me my first opportunities to gain experience working on movies. His method of working is very different than most directors- more dream oriented and intuitive. I did not see the entire script and was actually able to improv my lines and scenes which was an excellent learning experience.
3. You are in Noirland, the new Ramzi Abed film. Why did you choose to do another Abed film, this time a crime horror?
I am not sure if my scene will make it into Noirland. It was happenstance that we shot footage. I was doing promotional photo shoot for Ramzi and between takes, he asked if I would film a quick scene. I don’t know how it will work into the film, but that’s the magic of visual storytelling. I would love to do more crime, drama, thrillers, action, and even comedy. I want to explore all genres of film, though I do gravitate toward darker material.
4. What draw you to do Albino Farm, maybe the old slasher vibe?
Yes, I love the slasher vibe, “Hillbilly Horror” genre, and getting the chance to portray a villain was exciting to me. I grew up watching horror films of the 1980s, so they definitely impacted my psyche. I like to try different things and experiment with different looks- even if they are hideous. Perhaps there is a deep, psychological reason for me wanting to be portrayed as frightening.
5. You did films with Trent Haaga and Lloyd Kaufman. Can you tell me how the feeling to work with those horror legends is?
Honestly, I did not have scenes with them so I did not get the chance to meet them directly. I am very grateful to be involved with such inspirational people.
6. You have done the futuristic Archaic Redemption, and the crime horror The Devil’s Muse and slashers. Is there a horror subgenre that you won’t do?
If it is a great script, pays well, and gets released to a worldwide audience, I will do the film. I will not do anything that borders on pornography or soft porn. I think that is the nail in the coffin for a professional actor.
7. Can you tell me what was the first thing that draw you to do horror films, and how did they affect your life?
My parents founded Lunar Models, a sci/fi and horror model kit shop. I grew up going to conventions, reading comics, watching sci/fi- but I skewed off and discovered the horror section of the local video store. I swear I rented every scary film they had available before I was a teen. It definitely impacted and influenced me. Then when I started high school, I started watching all these little indie movies and was fascinated by the cool actors and actresses in them. I knew I wanted to be involved in movies- I was interested in the entire creative process of making a film a reality. I was that kid trying to figure out how they did things. I watched shows like “Movie Magic” and several behind the scenes and “making of” documentaries. I wanted to know it all. Not much has changed, has it?
8. Can we expect Bianca to appear in a new horror film in the near future?
Always. I am filming with Pearry Reginald Teo this month with his new horror film, “Dead Inside”. Then I get to become Blueray, the demon, in “Archaic Redemption”. It’s been a good year for me so far. Another film I am in, “My Sucky Teen Romance”, premiered to rave reviews at the huge SXSW Film Festival 2011!
9. I know that you listen to metal. Can you name some of the bands that you like to listen over and over again?
My favorite band is Alice in Chains because of the entire band’s utter torment and tremendous talent. I’m really drawn to the life of Layne Staley and the tragedy that surrounded it. Not just his immense talent, enigmatic charisma, or his personal demons, but the personal sabbatical he chose when he became a hermit during his former years. It’s been an obsession of mine for many, many years. I try to understand it- to piece together what he felt and why he chose that path. To (seemingly) have it all and (somewhat) willingly throw it all away- when millions of people loved you- and that just was not enough for a soul. It’s heartbreaking.
10. Can you tell me what your all-time favorite horror films are?
So many, where do I start… “Interview with the Vampire”, “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”, “The Shining”, “Return of the Living Dead”, “An American Werewolf in London”, “Shadow of the Vampire” – I love those films, not only for the horror aspect, but for their striking visual appeal. I still believe that film is a visual medium and I want to be enveloped in the entire fantasy world. That is ultimately what drew me to movie making and I hope to work on projects of a grand scale in the near future.
Concept: That’s “sucky” as in blood-sucking vampires. When 17-year-old Kate and four geeky pals go to a sci-fi convention, they meet a teenage vampire. Kate’s pal notices: “There’s kind of like a giant bite on your neck.” True Blood meets Comic-Con?
Filmmakers: Writer-director Emily Hagins steers a young cast headed by Elaine Hurt and Patrick Delgado.
You know you have reached le plus cool status when a film you are in is being talked about in French. Fantastique!
Congrats to the cast and crew of MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE!
