Your new movie The Night Monica Came Back
- in a few words,
what is it about?
The movie is
about a group of kids at a camp, they are all told a horror story about
a book of spells by Pops (the camp leader played by Laurence R. Harvey)
which includes magic that can kill people, two of the teenagers go into
the woods with the book and Thurston reads a spell which results in
Monica's death... what followed was even worse.
How did you get involved with the
Because my mum
found this awesome acting class (Northern Star Acting) and helped me join it. Eirian
Cohen [Eirian Cohen interview -

then asked if I would like to join the tribe for a special horror film
with Laurence R. Harvey
Do talk about your character for a
bit, and how did you prepare for him?
played Paul, I felt like Paul was seen as a little bit strange by the
others so I decided to act a bit odd. This was the first time I had
ever done any filming or even been on a film set so I was learning as it
The Night Monica Came Back
features horror icon Laurence R. Harvey from Human
Centipede 2 and 3 - so what was it like acting opposite him?
was a pleasure acting opposite him and was fab getting the experience from
him, he gave me acting tips which helped me and showed us all how to go
from nice to scary in seconds.
what I know (and I was there), you didn't only shoot a movie but this was
part of a "horror camp" - so do talk about some of the other
activities and workshops you did at the camp!
Feeling lucky ?

had a session learning how to be zombies, how to walk, talk, run, we also had
a zombie wedding which was funny. We played ninja warriors, where you have
to dodge people's ninja chops to your body or you're out. I absolutely
loved horror camp.
about the shoot as such for a bit, and the on-set atmosphere!
atmosphere was actually quite mysterious whilst filming like strange
things were going on, it was a bit windy and rainy whilst the dark things
were happeningn we even had thunder and lightning... when the filming was
not on the dark bits the sun came out. It's like the weather knew what we
needed to make the scenes better.
Anything else you're
dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?
got a behind the scenes glimpse listening through the headphones and
looking through the camera to get a viewer's perspective which was really
cool. I really enjoyed working with everybody on set and seeing how
everyone acted so professionally. I want to thank Eirian and
everyone for welcoming me into the tribe and look forward to future
movie's website, Facebook, whatever else?
Thanks for the
