Ryli Morgan


Ryli: "I've been interested in the entertainment
industry from a very young age".

Conducted by Phil Davies Brown
June 15th, 2005

To some of our UK readers my next guest is something of a virgin beauty. Ryli Morgan hasn't been on the scene for very long, but she has already made quite an impression thanks to her roles in a number of horror features. Ryli's passion for the entertainment industry, has seen her land a number of roles alongside many of the genre's finest talents. With her role in the forthcoming 'The Demons 5' horror fans will see Ryli working alongside Robert Englund, Gunnar Hansen and many more. Read on to see what Ryli thinks about her newfound Scream Queen status, and what she really thinks about her horror peers.

When did you first become interested in the arts?
I've been interested in the entertainment industry from a very young age, and pretty much had decided that I wanted to entertain - in some shape or form - around the age of 5.

You are married to self confessed "jack of all trades" Mark Baranowski. How influential has he been in helping you achieve your dreams?
Mark has been very instrumental in helping me reach my dreams/goals. He gave me the courage to begin modelling, which led to acting, and now has led to singing -- which is the main thing I wanted to do.

When I interviewed Mark, I asked him how he feels when you have to do nude scenes in movies. How do you feel when Mark has to do nude scenes in films?
So far, the only films Mark has done nude scenes in have been our own films... solo scenes I don't mind at all, but to be honest, I'd feel weird if he ever was hired to do a nude scene, or even just a romantic non-nude scene with another female. True, "it's just acting", but on the flip side of the same token, it's still your husband or wife making out with someone who isn't you... I guess I'm a little old fashioned in that respect, but if I am, so be it. I'd rather be true to my feelings than compromise them for the sake of film.


Ryli: "I got to play a vampire,
which I've always wanted to do".

Have you and Mark found that people are reluctant to give you certain roles because you are married? e.g. I would find it hard to make my friends wife make out with some guy in one of my movies.
I don't think that being married has cost me any roles -- at least, not to my knowledge. But then, if it has, it would probably have been a role I wouldn't be comfortable doing, anyway.

What has been your favourite role so far?
Hmm, that's a difficult decision. I really have had fun doing each role, so far. I guess I could say one of my favourites was Nicole in EXPENDABLE -- I got to play a vampire, which I've always wanted to do. Also, I enjoyed my cameo in SEVERE INJURIES, where we got to do a little comedy.

You will next be seen in Jim O'Rear's 'The Demons 5', are you excited about the prospect of working with some of the greatest genre actors ever?
I'm still pinching myself! (laughs)... It's great to be included in such a wonderful cast, which is really just a "who's who" of the horror genre.

What can you tell us if anything about your character Kelly Marsters?
I believe she's kind of "the smart chick" in the class... Jim says he thinks Kelly is a lot like me, so I take that as a compliment. (grin)


Ryli: "That's another thing I'm still
in a bit of shock over".

Which genre stars have you most enjoyed meeting and working with so far?
I have most enjoyed meeting and becoming friends with Brinke Stevens. I wasn't introduced to her work as early as that of others (Linnea Quigley, etc.) but I fell in love with her work and her presence on screen instantly, and she's simply a doll in real life. I truly love her passion, and I find her fascinating -- not only is she gorgeous, but she's got a brain, as well, and isn't afraid to show that.

Are you proud to be known as a Scream Queen?
That's another thing I'm still in a bit of shock over. I'm honoured to be included in that "group", but I still feel like such a beginner, and to be considered in the same league as Linnea, Brinke, Michelle Bauer, et al., is just amazing. Honestly, a dream come true.

You change your look a lot, do you get bored easily?
I think that for a while, I was trying to find myself... I wasn't sure what facet of myself that I wanted to portray -- I really liked the looks I had, while I had them, but variety is the spice of life. Being versatile can be a selling point as well... and if it's not, I'm still having fun experimenting. Some people have a certain persona, and it's then difficult to find a role for them, because they're the same person on- and off-camera. I don't want to pigeon-hole myself in that way.


"Thank you ever so much for taking part in this interview Ryli.
And we wish you the very best of luck in the future."
