SHERI MOON INTERVIEWED
Fangoria recently posted an excellent interview with Sheri Moon. Here's some extracts...
'..Of course, Moon won?t be a complete unknown to longtime Zombie fans. Moon?who happens to be Mrs. Zombie in real life?has appeared in all of her husband?s videos, dating back to White Zombie?s ?Feed the Gods? (from the soundtrack of AIRHEADS). ?We enjoy working together, so he wrote the part for me,? says Moon. ?He had more faith in me than I did! I guess he saw something from directing me in the videos that made him think I could handle it. He knows me better than anyone, so it worked out OK. I was really nervous, but it was a lot of fun.?
'Did plunging into onscreen gore and violence in her first film role disturb Moon at all? ?I would find it utterly shocking if a person was not somewhat disturbed by doing a violent scene,? she says. ?I was really, really having some anxieties about it, particularly this one stabbing that I did, and that part was not fun for me at all. I?d hate to meet the guy who thought it was!?
'Although Moon, as a novice actor, confesses to being ?terrified? before shooting started, she soon found herself at ease once she got to know the other actors, especially genre queen Black. ?We had a read-through before we actually started filming, and I was the only person in the room who wasn?t a working actor, so I was intimidated just by that whole process. But I met Karen that day, and from then on, she took me under her wing. She was great and a true inspiration, almost like my mom on the set.?
'As for Haig, another genre vet with a cult following, Moon says, ?I didn?t have any scenes with him, but we?ve become good friends ever since. He comes over to the house for dinner parties and barbecues and things like that, plus we bring him out to hockey games when we get extra tickets. One of the great experiences of working on the movie was that we remained friends with quite a few of the actors. That was nice, and I imagine it doesn?t always happen on every movie.?
