I do believe there are many ways people could approach you and some of the ways I've been approached have been a little excessive given where I work. Who says being a geek isn't cool? I don't appreciate people drooling over me but I definitely can take a compliment, especially when it comes to my acting. Once I confirmed, he proceeded to tell me that I did an amazing job. Does a movie like The Sublet, which is much more psychological horror, make your jobs as actresses easier or harder? She's had many roles where she kicks ass and takes names and I love that.

Is there a role that you have played you don't want to again? She is a dear friend that continues to push me for those amazing roles that will soon lead me to stardom. And please show this beautiful woman some love and see some of the other movies she is is in, she is absolutely talented and I for one can only hope to see her in more things. I want to thank Rachel and Tianna for taking the time to speak with us. Joanna begins to question her sanity as she suspects that the building is haunted.
Rachel: I love great horror films, anything that is mind bending, that jumps out at you and freaks you out. I am almost certain without a doubt you all know who she is, because if I know my friends and readers out there then I know you have in the least seen one the parts she has played. Or, just put her name in google and give her love where ever you see her! When I showed up that day, they decided that I would be a puppet.

Of course, my character had a French accent so that was a bit difficult, because there are so many French accents and I wanted it to be consistent and believable. I knew this was a big opportunity for me only because of how big Silent Hill was and also remembering it when I was young, playing the video games with my brothers. M: Is there a role you really want to play that you have not got to yet? Tianna: I love psychological horror and thrillers so for me as an actor I like the prep and doing all the research and giving people the respect they deserve, that might have experienced that in their real life. Tianna: I really love the pace, I do and for The Sublet I believe I was cast a week and a half before shooting so the ninety page script had to be memorized but also for my character, I needed to do a lot of research on post-partum depression and psychosis and try to watch a lot of haunted house movies and pay my bills at the same time.

Do you think part of the reason the indie horror films have such a huge fan base is because they seem much darker, much more real? I was very blessed to join this program as it has brought me much success and continued friendships that I will hold with me forever.
I guess all of that together would be not necessarily the hardest part but definitely challenging and I thrive on that kind of pace so I loved it. Though as an actress would you say that you find you have some amount of exhibitionism, that you enjoy being seen? So what do the two of you have coming up next? The next day after the test, I got a call from my agent telling me I booked it. . M: Is this the strangest interview you have had, by a blog that focuses on people as statues, mannequins, dolls, and among other objects?

As the walls literally close in on her, she discovers a violent past to the apartment, but is it postpartum depression or does this building want Joanna to give the ultimate sacrifice? Having the opportunity to be very malicious in The Sublet was extremely fun for me because I am nothing like that at all. Is it a coincidence that you portrayed the mannequin girl and a puppet in the video or has the idea of being almost doll like been something you found intriguing?
