First off before you all start reading this interview- I wanna thank Megan for her time in doing this. She is such a busy gal and I feel honored she would take time out to do this for me! So- heres to you Megan! You rock beyond words- to quote my sisters- your RADCORE!!! Okay- now on with the show, er , I mean the interview- enjoy my friends~~~~

JG - What put you in place to do horror movies? Was there a film in your past that grabbed you that you knew that you wanted to act and horror was the path?

MS -There was no 1 movie in particular. I've always been a Huge fan of the Horror/Haunt Genre. The story of "How I got here" is pretty well real glamour or glitz. I was running a small haunt nearby when a friend was filming a short "Haunt" he asked me to play the mom. I was scared to death to be in front of the camera, never mind say lines. Well I did it and I loved it! And I was off and running that was in 2004!

JG- What is your favorite horror movie (old and or new) ?

MS -Oh hands down..The Exorcist!

JG If you were asked to be in a remake of a classic horror- one that would be respectful to the original , the type that would make fans happy and feel good about the film, what movie would you like to do?

MS -That is an interesting question...I would have to say, Rosemary's Baby...Now that would stir up some bullshit talk!

JG- If you had the opportunity to pick a cast and director to star in a movie with , who would they be?

MS -My all time DREAM Director to work with, Martin Scorsese-Like that will ever happen..Cast Leonardo Dicaprio, Marisa Tomei, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro, Kate Beckinsale, Charlize Theron, Morgan Freeman...Yup that should do it..

JG- What kind of film would you love to do ,not horror in any way shape or form and why ?

MS -DRAMA! Real life, not the reality crap that is on TV. Real issues/situations people deal with everyday. Things they can relate to.

JG- What would you love to do if film was no longer an option , something else in the film industry or maybe a whole different career all together?

MS -I would have my own HAUNT!!! Oh wait...That is on my TO DO LIST....

JG- Are you a reader and if so , what is your favorite book and author?

MS -Yes I am! I love to read...It keeps the crazy brain from going completly crazy! I can't say I have a favorite author. I recently finished both Nikki Sixx books..Very powerful! I am now reading a book by Cupcake Brown again "Real life stuff" Loving it! But I also read true crime, Stephen King, really it depends on what i'm in the mood for.

JG- Now ,fun stuff, if I were to snag your IPOD - what music would be on it right now ???

MS -HAHAHA... OK your all gonna get a huge kick outta this...I have EVERYTHING from James Taylor to Five finger death punch! I LOVE music! I feel that it speaks to your soul so when I hear a good tune I grab it. And yes I LIKE Country music! Put it this way, in a 3 month period I saw James taylor, Kenny Chesney, Motley Crue & Poison...

JG- Any guilty pleasures? Music (secret Loverboy fan) , Movie ( loved Somewhere in Time perhaps?), maybe a Harlequin Romance (you know, the kind with Fabio on the cover ? Hehehe)

MS -So most people know I have been around celebreties forever. No big deal to me. And if you knew me i'm NEVER at a loss for words..So this really Kool opportunity comes to meet Nikki Sixxi at a book signing. No big deal right? I'm standing in front of him speechless like an ass! Yea he's still HOT as hell at 50! My teen crush is still there...sigh..

JG -Now- guiltless self promotion ,spill it all- new projects- conventions , websites ? Anything- anything at all!

MS -I get to throw humble out the window for a mere moment.
First up is the Stilitto Film Fest in February. I do get asked "Where did I come up with this idea" it really wasn't that difficult, last year I noticed a plug for "Women in Horror" month. And I brought it back to my team that we should/could do something. At that time we were kind of late in the game with only 3 months to go. We pulled off the first Stiletto... Not a huge success BUT we were on the map! we knew what we needed to do to make it work. This year has already been amazing and we haven't even had the event yet. The submissions have been incredible!

What an amazing team I have! Without them this would never happen. It is a true Red Carpet event in the heart of Boston where we will be showcasing films from all over the globe. Some of our Guest judges include Melanie Robel, Monique Dupree- This is in celebration of Women in Horror Month. During this event we are also "Giving Back" we are colaberating with local food banks and will be asking folks to bring a non perishable food item to donate. Times are tough all over. But no one should have to go hungry!
You can find LOTS of information about the film fest on the website:

I have started a children's clothing line - TBH- Tony & Bella's Hamper- We have a facebook page with pictures of very kool kiddos wearing the clothes. Website is underconstruction.

Just Started casting for my feature Steele Hearts- Filming will begin in Fall 2012

I just signed on as a Producer for Red Light Kate- Very excited about this project and working with the cast.
Another project that I am a Producer on is Fraternitas- I am also acting in this film.

Both of these projects I am honored to be a part of. They are all professionals in the industry.
