Your new movie Fight Valley - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character?


Fight Valley is a story centered around an underground all girls fight club. There is a lot of great action in this film but there is also a lot of heart. My character's girlfriend is killed in an underground fight. Her sister comes into town, having grown up in a completely different and privileged world. She learns to fight from Miesha Tate's character, so she can try to avenge her sister's death.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and honestly, how much Erin O'Brien can we find in Duke?


There is definitely a bit of me in the character of Duke. I love being able to explore my darker side and I love playing tough women characters.


Fight Valley does feature many a fight scene - so how did you train for that aspect of the movie, and are you at all into whatever style of fighting in real life?


I trained for the movie by taking Jiu Jitsu classes. I also was very strict about my diet. I really wanted to look and feel my best, especially since I was going to be working alongside such strong and physically fit women. My boyfriend was the stunt coordinator for the movie so he and I also worked on some fight choreography before we started filming.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


The director of the movie Rob Hawk had seen a movie I did called Jailbait on Netflix. I also play a very tough character in that, and that was what Rob was looking for. I auditioned and he offered me the role of Duke.


What can you tell us about Fight Valley's director Rob Hawk, and what was your collaboration like?


Rob and I became good friends filming Fight Valley. I love how much passion he has for his films. I think we work very well together. I really like him as a director because he trusts me as an actor, and we have a lot a mutual respect for each other.


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


The atmosphere on set was pretty upbeat. Everyone worked really hard and they were excited to be there. I love working on sets where people are happy and grateful for the opportunity.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I will be working on Fight Valley 2, hopefully filming this winter. I am also working on Rob's next project, an anti-bullying horror film called Worthless. After that I will be filming a movie about the man who invented the lobotomy starring Tom Sizemore. It was written by my good friend Jack Reher and will also be directed by him.


What got you into acting to begin with, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I started studying acting in high school, I grew up In New Jersey about an hour from New York, so I was lucky to have some opportunities at my fingertips. Eventually I moved to New York and  I started studying with William Esper. After building up my resumé a little I decided to make the move to LA - and I'm happy I did.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Fight Valley?


I've worked on a number of independent films. I have two films that have been playing on Showtime and Netflix for a couple years now that I made with the film company The Asylum. Jailbait is still playing on Netflix and Bikini Spring Break can still be seen on Showtime.  


How would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


I'm definitely a perfectionist and I'm very hard on myself sometimes because I want to create good work. I feel like I'm always learning and I want to continue to develop as an actress. I'm nowhere near where I want to be but I'm very focused. Something I've been trying to do is just relax and trust myself. I think that's a great technique ;)

I'm inspired by many actors and actresses because every actor brings something unique to the table. I am a big fan of Kate Winslet, everything she does is so effortless and flawless. And I love Angelina Jolie because she is fearless and open and emotional on screen. There are many others but those two stand out for me.


Your favourite movies?


I have a lot of older favorite movies, that I liked to watch growing up. This Boy's Life with Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. Rebel Without a Cause is a favorite of mine. I'm also a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, Kill Bill is one of my all time favorites as well. Working with him would be a dream.
