Erika with Jason Lockhart
new movie All American Bikini Car Wash - in a few words,
what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?
like American Pie with nudity... so better ;-) My character is a bit of a
nympho. In touch with her sexuality and possibly a good influence on her on-again-off-again boyfriend!
did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of you can
we find in her, actually?
wild and open minded so I brought that to the table. I was channeling Tara
Reid as a hot mess!!
first thoughts when you heard the title "All American Bikini Car
So cliché and how can we stand out with a title like that! Well it exceeded
my expectations and with a cast like ours it could have been international
bikini car wash! We combined two things people love. Bikini car wash and
did you get involved with the project in the first place?
was sent to the audition by my agent and connected with the character.
the most part, your role in All American Bikini Car Wash requires
you to wear very little - was that at all a problem for you?
I am comfortable in my body. My very first scene was nude, so it's not an
issue for me.
talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?
had a great time. Became friends and laughed a lot. We were allowed to add
some of our own flavor by improvising a bit so it comes across as organic
future projects you'd like to share?
just finished shooting Bad Girls Behind Bars and Vixens From
titles will most likely change but they should air on HBO next year!
College Cheerleaders vs Zombie Housewives is airing this year on Cinemax
and HBO! I'm also a series regular on
The Playboy Morning Show.

got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal
training on the subject?
have always been an actress. I started by doing plays as a child. The
the Witch and the Wardrobe, Golden Goose, Diary of Anne Frank. I've taken
various acting classes and I've done improv and stand-up training as well.
Love immersing myself in a character. Seeing the world through someone
can you tell us about your filmwork prior to All American Bikini Car Wash?
have mostly been on HBO,
TV, and Cinemax. I started as the
weather girl for Playboy and starring in B movies. I enjoy these movies,
they're actually more fun that shows like NCIS and True Detective
been in both but usually end up playing a stripper ... when you have boobs
and the ability to pole dance that's what happens ;-)
would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of your techniques to
bring your characters to life?
love comedy. I picture back story. Not just the lines but things that have
happened to the character and how they made "me" feel. My intent
in the scene and what motivates me.
(and indeed actors) who inspire you?
Angelina Jolie, JLo, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
