Your new movie Psycho-Therapy
- in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your
character in it?
play Victoria, who is a frustrated psychotherapist trying to find a
logical, sensible way to deal with her self-absorbed patients and her
eventually finds a very logical, simple solution to help everyone,
What did you draw upon to bring your
character to life, and how much Suzanne Johnson can we find in Victoria?
really like Victoria, and I believe she is a genuinely good person who
wants to be respected as a true professional, and really help people. And,
she also desperately wants to be free of all the annoying people in her
life. Who doesn’t? There is a lot of me in Victoria. It was so much fun
to be able to take that crazy path for a little while.
did you get involved with the project in the first place, and how did you
end up on the producing side of things as well?
had worked with director Joshua Nelson [Joshua
Nelson interview - click here] in the past, and he thought I was the perfect fit
for the role, and since we work on such a low budget, I wanted to jump in
as a producer because I believed in the film.
what extent can you personally identify with both Psycho-Therapy's
approach to horror and brand of comedy?

director Joshua Nelson [Joshua
Nelson interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?
Nelson is a wonderful director. He is one of the kindest people I know,
and everyone has a great time on set. He has his vision of things but
wants his actors to interpret their own vision as well. I like when a
scene isn’t working, and I can see his mind working to lock down a
talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!
on-set atmosphere was incredible. There was a lot of laughing, it was so
much fun. Everyone involved was so supportive of each other, and everyone
just worked so hard.
future projects you'd like to share?
believe Joshua has a few projects in the works, and hopefully I will be
able to be a part of them, either acting or behind the scenes.
What got you into
acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the
work in the corporate world (my day job), and I started taking acting
classes to help with public speaking. I had no idea I would love it so

How would you describe yourself as
an actress, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?
is the hardest thing I have ever done. I love it, and I work hard because
I enjoy it so much. I like to use my own feelings and memories to develop
