Your upcoming movie The Scarehouse - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


The Scarehouse is about revenge. Two hopeful sorority girls are blamed for a prank gone wrong. Instead of getting mad they get even. Well… they’re pretty mad too. I play Corey Peters. She’s not your typical ‘sorority girl’. I would say she’s a badass bitch. She does want answers from these girls but ultimately she wants to see them suffer.


You have come up with the story of The Scarehouse together with your husband and director Gavin Michael Booth [Gavin Michael Booth interview - click here] - so what were your inspirations, and did you create your character with yourself in mind?


Originally it was going to be an all male cast. A fraternity. I know… what the hell were we thinking? So when Gavin told me that it was going to be all female I was determined to sit over his shoulder and tell him all my devious ideas. I actually wanted to play Lisa. We wrote her with myself in mind but after the first draft I started to really like Corey. I also thought ‘Hey… when was the last time you played a lead in a feature for Universal?!?…’ So Corey was the obvious choice. They did make me audition though. I like to tell people that so they don’t think I get parts by sleeping with the director.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of Sarah Booth can we find in Corey?


Besides all the people I’ve also killed? I think Corey has a sense of humour even in dark situations, I have the same habit of laughing during inappropriate moments but I think it’s refreshing. Speaking of sense of humour, I did co-write the movie so mine was sort of injected in all the girls; which is fun. Corey and I are both sort of surprising people, in different ways but still. And really, I like that Corey talks about poop. Shit happens.


What was your on-set collaboration with your husband/director Gavin Michael Booth [Gavin Michael Booth interview - click here] on The Scarehouse like - and since we're talking about him, how have the two of you first hooked up, actually?


Wow Mike. That’s a really personal question… but we hooked up in a hot tub with too much red wine. As for collaborations we are pretty much the same person. We have a lot of the same impulses and share a brain. My mom calls him the male version of me. But when we do disagree about something I win. That’s why we’re still happily married.


Since you were also involved in the production side of things, what were the major challenges here?


I love producing but sometimes you find yourself in the middle of a scene thinking “If lunch hasn’t arrived yet I am gonna kill the caterer!” or “Can’t this girl get her lines right? We are almost 2 hours behind schedule!” Things you should not do while performing stunts or are trying to be emotional on camera. You have to remember that even though you own two hats (producing/acting) you can never wear them at the same time. It’s ugly. It’s a blessing to have the awareness of worlds both in front and behind the camera but sometimes it’s TMI. When you know your behind schedule but you as an actor know you need another take you have to be selfish and ask for it. No matter how much you aggravate the director…


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


It was tough. Not gonna lie. Some people create the best of a hard situation and some people make it worse. It taught me a lot about myself. 

Overall I think I am more than ready for the next film. Making The Scarehouse has taught me valuable lessons about dealing with difficult people and situations.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Right now I am working on the 2nd season of Helix for SyFy Network. I’m not allowed to say anything about it but it’s going to be pretty sick. It’ll be on air in January. Gavin and I have a few projects on the go right now, we’re waiting to see which one takes off first. I’m also producing a play here in Toronto in December, my costar and director (David Ferry) was in Boondock Saints – so that’s pretty cool too!


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I grew up loving dance. I had been practicing ballet since I was four. So I always knew I loved being on stage. When I was introduced to theatre in high school I realized that acting seemed like a more natural fit for me than pursuing dance. I studied professional theatre at Dawson College in Montreal before trying out the real world on my own. I’m self-disciplined for the most part and have never stopped learning – acting classes, stunt classes, making my own short films to acting, reading books on different techniques. Never stop learing!


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to The Scarehouse?


I did smaller projects immediately after school, daily roles on TV shows and film sets. The first big star I acted opposite was Eric Bana in Deadfall - he rescues me in that film; it was awesome. I did a French Canadian soap opera called 30 Vies which helped get me my French actor’s union card. I’m kind of like a unicorn for having both French and English cards. I’ve also really enjoyed putting on my producer hat to help make low budget features (Ben’s At Home), a short (To Hell, With Love) and now would like to continue with both like I did on The Scarehouse.

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


I don’t have a single technique, every character is different. Writing about characters for some really helps; others I need to figure out how to embody physically; it’s all different. You really find your character when you’re with the other actors – then you get to see how they treat you - which informs you so much more about yourself as the character. It all has to come together.


Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?


Anne Dorval, she’s in Xavier Dolan’s films and you just never doubt her for a second, she plays these great big, believable characters. I would just love to do stuff like that. Robert Downey Jr. for his perfect comedic timing. I don’t know… it changes every day. There are so many amazing actors out there.


Your favourite movies?


Jawbreaker, animated movies like Shrek and Toy Story – made for kids but also adults –, Scream, The Craft, and I love simple dramas like C.R.A.Z.Y. too.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


I just don’t like super predictable movies. In the audience, I want to be surprised.


Your/your movie's website, Facebook, whatever else?


Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


Nope! That’s it! Thanks for the interview. It’s been fun to reflect on The Scarehouse and my career thus far!


Thanks for the interview!
