In the following interview we gain some insight into Baby herself, her character Val, and what she’s looking forward to in the coming months.
DB&B: Baby, I just have to ask, is Baby a stage name or your birth name?”
Baby: (With a big smile) It’s my real name. I was named after my dad’s band.”
DB&B: “Baby, tell us a little about your acting background. How did you hear about this film?”
Baby: “Well, I’m represented by the J. Pervis Talent Agency and Click Models.I love working with them and I couldn’t be happier.They’re all such wonderful people. I actually heard about the film through another actor on the film Teddy Gathmann who is also with J. Pervis. After that I came in for an audition. I’ve been acting for about 5 years now and the majority of my career has taken place in Indie films. However I’ve also been very lucky to land parts in a very popular webseries called Horror Hotel. The cast and crew of Horror Hotel are like family to me. They’re very professional and focused individuals who have a deep love and passion for what they’re doing.”
DB&B: “That’s awesome! We’re huge fans and supporters of Horror Hotel ourselves. How much work have you done with them?”
Baby: “I’ve been in two episodes so far, “The Problem With Clones” and more recently in season two, “Life After Men” and I have my fingers crossed that I’ll be asked to be in another episode at some point.”
DB&B: “In your acting career, what would you say has been your most challenging role?”
Baby: “Definitely Horror Hotel’s The Problem With Clones. In that episode I had to play 5 different versions of myself. It was crazy but so much fun! It was a challenge to switch roles and come up with different personalities but at the same time making it believable.”
DB&B: “Tell us a little about your character in The Takeover, Val.”
Baby: “Val is a tough, resilient, leader who is on a mission. She’s somewhat manipulative, but in a good way. She’s basically trying to find out what the fuck happened to her!” (She laughs).”I can’t say anything more without giving the story away.”
DB&B: Looking at her makeup I just nod. “I understand.”
DB&B: “So what’s after this movie? Do you have another project lined up?”
Baby: (She nods then smiles) “Yes, next I’m going to be in a film by John Cap called “SLAW” It’s a parody of the Saw franchise films. It’s looks awesome and I’m looking forward to it.I’ll be playing the lead as Amber.”
DB&B: “And of course due to NDA’s I’m sure you can’t say anything more, right?”
DB&B: (I start to close my notes and she stops me with a big smile.)
Baby: After that, (I scramble to open my notes) I’m going to be in a fantasy film titled “Edgor and Izzy” I play the role of Galatae. That film will start shooting in August. And after that..”
DB&B: “Wow Baby, you’ve got a lot on your plate…good for you!”
Baby: “Absolutely! after “Edgar and Izzy” I’ll be in another sci-fi film called “Garbage Men” where I’ll play the principal role of Evelyn.I’m basically the fiance to the lead character.”
DB&B: “Personal question time baby. Tell us something about you. Something that you’d like your fans to know. For example, what do you do in your down time?”
Baby: “I actually turn my phone off and climb into my king size bed and relax. I’m so tired at the end of the day that that’s all I want to do sometimes.” (she smiles)
(Just as Baby finished, she was called back to the set.)
DB&B: “Thanks for everything, Baby.”
Baby: “You’re welcome, I had fun! We’ll talk again soon.”
