It truly has been hard going for this budding actress and scream queen--oh, sorry, she'd rather not be called that until she feels more like one career-wise, not to mention avoid issues with certain other "personalities". She's been the target of reputation smears, career sabotage, jealous ambitions, what my nephew likes to call "swagger jacking", and all seemingly from one source. So much and so vast are the lies that they have pretty much brought one aspect of who she is and what she loves to a standstill. But not for long, as far as this Black Cat Pirate Gypsy is concerned. She is talented on other levels and has decided to focus on those for now. She insists on remaining who she is, and has learned that sometimes it is much better to stand your ground and live your truth than be intimidated by outside forces. I've seen this girl's potential and really hope that someday soon she's allowed to break through all that drama and web of deceit that she's caught up in. A word to the wise: play the game clean, you never know who you'll end up hurting.
What got you started in acting?
retrospect, I wish I had decided to become a drama major in high school instead of a music major, but I was so focused in the music arena that I didn't. I wrote a lot as well and screenplays were something I wrote often. When I was older I started going on auditions. I wasn't always successful, but i did get some parts here and there.
How many films have you made?
Is the indie horror industry hard to break into?
Are you a hardcore gorehound, or have you considered other genres as well?
Who's easy to work with? Who isn't?
hard to work with, as well as people who are easily swayed by bullshxt. They know who they are. People who keep the set light, the
y're always fun, like the last director I worked with, Koh Yamamoto. He made sure everyone was doing okay, from the principals to the extras. I really hope to work with him again.
Is there anyone you'd love to work with?
What are your plans for future projects?
What is your opinion on the state of today's horror?
Any advice for aspiring actors?
Keep at it. Keep marketing yourself and plugging away. Try not to get discouraged. Get your best headshots and resume ready and make sure you have comp and busniess cards-- you never know who you'll run into. Make sure you have a significant online presence...and avoid people who'd rather see you ruined than successful--they can be anyone from your worst enemy to your own family. I speak from experience!

Your booty call soundtrack: top 3 songs.
Oh, man, that can be anything! Prince is a good way to go. Plus any metal. There actually is a special one that I love just because my partner gets SO into it...but I'm keeping that one to myself...
