How did this happen for you?
In: 16.02.37 out: 16.03.06
Uh.. well I got into acting I think about 2 and a half years ago and my modeling agency at the time said – why don’t you go out for this tv show and I was just very hesitant and I ended up booking it and you know 2 and a half years later cut back to I’m auditioning doing pilots that aren’t getting picked up and then I read this great script at the time called Antarctica later became eight below and didn’t think I had a shot in the world and I went in and was called like 2 days later over the weekend and was offered the part.. and off to Canada!
Do you know when they changed the title to eight below?
In: 16.03.12 Out: 16.03.27
Yeah, I’m not really sure what their reasoning was for changing it. Um, I know a lot of people knew it as Antarctica. But I think Eight Below is a good title. You know, eight dogs, Eight Below zero. I think it is good.
Inspired by a true story.
In: 16.03.29 Out: 16.03.38
Yeah, always, when you see a movie and it says inspired or based by a true story you are like “ouuu” I’m gonna get into this a little more this might have really happened.
Correlation between what really happened?
In: 16.03.48 Out: 16.04.24
You know what, I actually don’t really know where truth begins and then it kinda deviates. I know that there were some dogs that were left behind after an expedition and I do believe they went back and to me that was a big chunk of the story. So that’s all I need to know. I don’t think there was a Katie, I’m just guessing. I don’t think in 1957 there was a female pilot but….hahah. Maybe that was, maybe they added that in but I’m grateful that they did or I wouldn’t have a job so.
Heart string tugging?
In:16.04.24 Out: 16.04.49
Absolutely, yeah, it’s one of those movies that you know maybe you watch the trailer and you think that’s interest, I like dogs, I like Paul Walker you know and then you watch it and you go, this is really, this is really compelling this is really, I can’t believe these dogs, and I don’t want to give to much away but it’s like you’re watching and you’re going what’s going to happen and you get pulled in. And that is what I want people to feel when they see it.
Paul Walker’s role change
In: 16.05.00 Out: 16.05.28
Which is smart of him, because you know Fast and Furious, and Timeline and he, you know as an actor you always want to kinda do different roles, you don’t want to be the same thing every time, you wanna be a little different. I think Paul, being as attractive as he is you know, it is important he does do things that are challenge him and are different. And I think this is a good movie for him to sorta, you know, he’s the man of the movie. I think it works and they picked a good guy for it. It’s a good move on his part.
And Jason Biggs?
In: 16.05.28 Out: 16.05.44
Who can’t love Jason Biggs? Oh, and people have no idea how funny that guy is. He is so funny, and witty and very very bright. So many times to me he made me roll. Just laughing all the time with Jason, he’s silly. He’s like a big brother.
Jason’s other movies?
In: 16.05.49 Out: 16.06.24
Yeah, I was like, Jason, I love you, but I like you now better than I like you in American Pie. What do you think of that Jason? He doesn’t care. Um, he is, I saw American Pie. And it wasn’t one honestly it wasn’t one of my favorite movies and then I met Jason and he was like so funny and then I actually watched American Pie again and I was like I do like this movie because maybe I worked with Jason it put a different kinda spin on it and there are definitely some moments where he is great in this movie I mean he’s the comic relief.
You the female relief?
In: 16.06.36 Out: 16.06.57
Yeah, I like the idea of saying “Wow, I played a female lead that’s really cool.” Even though to me it’s about the dogs and it’s about Paul and his relationship with them and one…there is Brenda, there is another female in there but yeah it’s a female lead and it’s so great because I get to play a pilot that’s so cool.
In: 16.06.58 Out: 16.07.13
Yeah, I have a movie coming out called Pathfinder, in June. And it’s a fox movie directed by Marcus Misspell who did Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Vikings and Native Americans, very different from Eight Below.
It’s already in the can
Yeah, I finished about a month and a half, two months ago. Yeah.
