Your new movie All Girls Weekend - in a few words, what is it all about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Five high school friends get together for a little reunion party some years after graduating and decide to go on a hike in the woods only to get lost and get into all kinds of trouble. My character is Nancy and my social attitude is one of cynicism. There is more to me than I let on however, and through my actions, the audience will discover who I really am as the film goes on.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Jamie Bernadette can we find in cynical Nancy, actually?

 

I wouldn’t say I am cynical in real life. People describe me as a warm, friendly person. But I do love to play the rude characters sometimes because it gives me an opportunity to create someone who is totally not like me at all, which is fun. I tend to play all different kinds of characters in my films. I have a wide range. When I come across a character who is outwardly not like me, I find people in my own life who are like that character and watch and learn from them and use that to develop the character. However, regarding Nancy, there are a lot of traits about her that I could relate to. Her snarky social façade that she puts on isn’t all there is to her. You will have to watch the movie to find out more about her as the story unfolds.

 

The one stupid question I just have to ask: If a bear crossed your path in real life, what would you do?

 

I would scream and flail my arms wildly because that is what I heard you are supposed to do. I usually carry a knife with me when I am in the woods so I would stab the bear’s eye out!

 

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

 

I auditioned. I sent in a tape to Lou, the director, and I learned later that when she and actress Gema Calero, who does a fantastic job playing “Gem” in the film, saw my tape they said, “THAT is Nancy!” And that was it.

 

What can you tell us about All Girls Weekend's director Lou Simon [Lou Simon interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

I love Lou. She is a tell-it-like-it-is sort of person which is refreshing. She is brilliant. When I read the script, I thought it was a smart, original concept that surprises and I was so excited to be a part of it. Lou is a really talented writer and a fantastic director. Before we would shoot we would all read over the scenes together and Lou would watch and comment. She knew what she wanted. She had a clear vision of how this film would be put together and she did a beautiful job.

 

With the film being filmed mostly outdoors in wintery conditions, how did that affect your performance, and do you consider yourself at all an outdoorsy kind of woman?

 

There were days it was actually freezing and since we were supposed to be cold in the film, it really helped my performance to actually be cold. We had snow on some days when we didn’t plan for snow so we would have to switch the scenes we were filming that day so that it would make sense in the continuity of the story. The environment was a character in itself in the film, and a feisty one at that. I remember the day we were zip-lining, we were up in the trees for about two hours and with wind chill, I wouldn’t doubt that it was maybe 10 degrees or even lower. Then it started raining ice. We were all shaking so badly and we had to pretend like we weren’t cold, so that was a challenge. So we were all wet and the water had leaked into my boots and my feet were frozen. We all look back at that day and laugh. It was an adventure!

Yes, I do consider myself an outdoorsy kind of woman. I love to go hiking and camping and explore nature. In fact, it is my favorite thing to do. 

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Gema Calero, Jamie, Katie Carpenter

It was definitely one of those films where you bond with everyone and the bond will never be broken, perhaps because the weather conditions were such a challenge and I believe people do bond in challenging times. We had a lot of fun, that’s for sure. I look back and this is one of the films that will hold a special place in my heart forever. 

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I lead I Spit on Your Grave: Déjà Vu, the sequel to the 1978 horror/thriller cult classic I Spit on Your Grave. The original writer/director Meir Zarchi returns to write and direct and the original lead actress Camille Keaton returns and plays my mother in the film. The movie is currently in editing right now and has a tentative release date of possibly later this year.

 

Also tentatively coming out later this year is The 6th Friend, a paranormal slasher film I star in, co-wrote with director Letia Clouston, and produced with Chantelle Albers, who also acts in the film [Jamie's The 6th Friend interview - click here]. Also acting in the film are Dominique Swain (Lolita), Jessica Morris (One Life to Live), and Tania Nolan (Step Dave). I am so excited to bring everyone this film!

 

State of Desolation is a post-apocalyptic zombie drama/horror film that I star in with Craig Stark (Hateful 8, Django Unchained). I produced the film with the director Jim Towns (House of Bad) [Jim Towns interview - click here]. Also in the film are Dominique Swain (Alpha Dog, Lolita), Sadie Katz (Wrong Turn 6), Jessica Morris (One Life to Live) and Maria Olsen (I Spit on Your Grave: Déjà Vu) [Maria Olsen interview - click here]. It’s a beautiful film actually although we are dealing with some pretty gruesome elements. It is tragic and sad and I can’t wait to show it to you guys! We are wrapping up post production.

I also do comedies and love doing them as much as I love doing horror. I have a couple of comedies coming out also. I just reunited with director Ash Avildsen (What Now) on American Satan, a dark comedy executive produced by John G. Avildsen, the writer/director of the Rocky and Karate Kid movies. The film stars Denise Richards (Starship Troopers), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), John Bradley (Game of Thrones), Mark Boone Junior (Sons of Anarchy) and many more. I wrapped in April and the film is now in post production.

 

Also on the way in the comedy genre is Smothered by Mothers. I play a sassy assistant to a football star, played by Shannon Brown. Also in the film are Heather Matarazzo (Welcome to the Dollhouse), Jim O’Heir (Parks and Recreation) and Burt Young (Rocky).  

 

Also on the way in the horror/thriller genre are the films that I lead Elder Island, Killing Joan [Jamie's Killing Joan interview - click here] and 13 Days. So keep an eye on my Facebook, Instragram and Twitter as I make announcements when these are coming out.
