First off wanna thank Christa for taking time out of her busy schedule to do this interview- for me personally it is an honor to have had this chance ( and hope one day maybe a follow up could occur!!!) - so THANK YOU Christa!!
JG - What put you in place to do movies? Was there a film in your past that grabbed you that you knew that you wanted to act after viewing it??
CC -I was a very bored model, I wanted to be challenged so i pursued acting. It is not an easy business. But I’m a fighter and believe you can do anything you put your mind to.
JG- What is your favorite movie (old and or new) ?
CC -I loved Poltergeist, the Shining, and this crazy movie Night of the Comet.
JG -I notice how you have been in a wide variety of films – everything from family in Rin Tin Tin to my fav genre horror ,2001 Maniacs 1-2 and Hyenas – what do you say has been the most fun genre of film you have done? What would you enjoy doing more of?
CC -I love being on set, I love films i can take risks in, I love horror cause i can be crazy and evil, and i love action cause I can be tough and do fight scenes, and I cherish the moments that I’ve been able to work with amazing actors that have given me the opportunities to work hard and stay on my game. I love being fearless.
JG - If you had the opportunity to pick a cast and director to star in a movie with, who would they be?
CC -Obviously I’ve made a lot of independent movies, i still dream that one day ill book the lead in a big budget film and get paid a lot of money to do 1 scene that day. In the independent world you shoot 10 scenes a day with 2 takes. Big budget would be fun.
JG - The awesome chance you have had to work with stars like Nicholas Cage , John Travolta and Jason Statham - are there any dream stars and or directors you would love to work with ?
CC -I am so grateful for the actors I’ve been able to work with, when your acting you get a high when you are on set doing what you love,theres nothing like that feeling in the world
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?
CC -I am a producer. And I love it. I’m a born survivor and fighter. You have to fight every day when you are producing.
JG - Are you a reader and if so, what is your favorite book and author?
CC- I read 3 scripts a day right now, I haven’t been able to pick up a good book in a long time
JG - Now, fun stuff, if I were to snag your IPOD - what music would be on it right now???
CC -I’m obsessed with Gotye right now. And I would be embarrassed by my iPod shuffle, lots of the cheesy stuff
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)
CC -I’m a pretty simple girl, I think people are always surprised by that. I’m down to earth and travel with my backpack. People always assume i would be glamorous with diamonds or something. Me id pawn the diamonds and put the money in the bank and throw on my sneakers.
