Talking with Brenna Roth
Sitting down to talk with the lovely Brenna Roth was a delight. She is a down to Earth, typical Midwest girl who has not let a famous father or the film industry define who she is. She worked as a model throughout the nineties and then plunged into the “B” movie scene. Her appearances in Killer Biker Chicks, Hill Billie Bob, and Heavy Mental demonstrated a true skill for acting that I hope to see explored in future projects. Though the majority of her work has been in low budget films, Brenna performs with the kind of passion one would expect from a more well known Hollywood Celebrity and her projects have earned her a cult following. Brenna tells us a little about her projects;
Killer Biker Chicks gives us exactly what the title implies. Can you give us some insight into your character Vi?
Wow, it’s so crazy to think that people still talk about this movie. I think we filmed that in 2007. I feel like that was one of those movies that I didn’t really have to “act” much on. In my real life at that point, I was with a boyfriend who wasn’t the nicest person and would just drink a LOT. So, when Regan (director) asked me to read the script and see if I liked the role of Vi, I said yes right away. Between my real life experiences and the heat of the Nevada desert, it wasn’t hard to be sad, or angry, or mad. Those emotions came easier at that time in my life. If I had to do that now, I would have to work much more.
Ha! First of all, I am happy you likes it. That is always nice to hear. I’m not sure we had a script for that one…? I’m pretty sure we just kept getting together and hung out enough that we finally had a finished project. The director lived about 3 hours away from me in Ohio so for a few months I would just go see him on the weekends, sleep on his couch, and act during the day. It was a blast filming that movie and I am still friends with Sal, to this day.
“Heavy Mental” was for sure the best acting experience I have ever had. I got the lead role about 4 days before filming began. It just took a lot of work to get into character for that and then when we worked on the film, Mike (Director) really pushed me to do my hardest.
I don’t really have an opinion on the subject. If someone looks nice or is sexy, they should be happy about that. I have never understood the girls who get half naked in movies and then get upset when guys look at them as a sexual icon. Personally, I don’t think I am even pretty. I mean, I think I look alright and I am extremely normal… I doubt I will ever be sexy, in my own mind.
Did the director ever finish that? The ONLY reason I ever worked with him was because he said it would be on HBO…he was a jerk, a pervert, and a liar. I feel bad for the girls who got naked for him on that film.
I have a few times actually. I was living in the house that once belonged to my grandma. (She passed away in the house.) There were several times that I would hear her say a short phrase or 1 or 2 words. Since I’ve left that house, it hasn’t happened again yet.
I don’t have a lot of “favorites”. My current favorite TV shows are “Walking Dead” and “better call saul”. As far as books and music goes, I usually just read the NY Times and listed to whatever is on the radio.
I haven’t been in a band for about 5 years now. It was just pop-punk. They let anyone semi-famous sing in bands.
Hum… not sure actually! If you can find it, I would love to hear it again!
I will have info on the Bigfoot Comedy in about 2 weeks. I believe it opens on May 18th, in Pittsburgh. https://www.facebook.com/bigfootthemovie?fref=ts
