Canadian Scream Queen
Wrong Turn 2, Final Destination 3, Black Christmas, Children of the Corn, Primeval, co-actin with Henry Rollins ... lovely Crystal Lowe seems to become the new scream-queen ... so we scheduled an interview to receive more background info about current projects and much more.
entertaim.net: Hi Crystal .. you just acted on the horror comedy "A little bit Zombie" ... it's more an indie movie but it's going to be very successful. I just watched the trailer ... looked like fun doing this movie, right?
Crystal Lowe: It was so much fun being a part of this movie, everyone in the cast and crew knew this movie was spezial, so we all treated it as though it was a big blockbuster in terms of dedication. We also laughed non-stop during filming, I mean if you have seen the film you can imagine why. I really hope that the world gets to share in all our laughs.
entertaim.net: You really seem to be addicted to horror films: Wrong Turn 2, Final Destination 3, Black Christmas, Children of the Corn etc. So, what's so special acting in this genre? Is it fun or sometimes disgusting?
C.L.: Well, I always have a good time on every set but horrors can definitely be very exhausting, there is usually a lot of screaming and running involved (laughing) I have to say the horror and sci-fi fans are some of the best. They are totally dedicated and love their movies, so I guess that's what I like so much about the two genres.
entertaim.net: Back in the times of SCREAM and BUFFY Sarah Michelle Gellar has been celebrated as Scream-Queen ... right now, especially the Canadian press are regarding you as being the new Scream-Queen. What do you feel about this?
C.L.: (laughing) It's really sweet actually, I remember growing up hearing that Jamie Lee Curtis was THE scream queen when she first started so if I can try and follow in her footsteps I will happily accept the title.
entertaim.net: By the way ... what kind of music do you prefer? I'd guess more Metal like KORN (I still have „Children of the Corn" in mind), Slipknot etc. ...?
C.L.: I think you would be surprised, I love all music but right now I listen to Billie Holiday every morning.
entertaim.net: No kidding?
C.L.: (laughing) I Love dark art but I like my music kind of light and fun. Music really affects my mood so I try and surround myself with the positive! Haha ...
entertaim.net: Primeval: New World is another step in your career ... what do you prefer ... getting the main role in a big Hollywood Blockbuster or playing the main character in a popular TV show?
C.L.: Well, I love the consistency of a TV show, you really get to know your cast and crew inside and out and you work off each other's strengths and weaknesses and its truly a family. I would like to still do as much film as possible just because I love that it's a new character every time, so it's pretty exciting.
entertaim.net: What are your plans for 2012 so far?
C.L.: I still have to finish up Primeval New World which will take me into the summer where I should rest, but of course I won't cause, I am a workaholic. I just finished reading another script for a film, so I will have to let you know later if I decided to move forward on it.
entertaim.net: Crystal, thank you so far ... so I'm going to watch one of your movies right now. Good luck by walking in Jamie Lee Curtis' footsteps. Thank you very much and good luck!
C.L.: Thank YOU. My pleasure!
