First Sore Throat
I had to do some audio redubbing for Saw 3D, but the whole thing was just screaming. You have to watch video of your scene and time your screaming, like, “OK, one short scream and two long screams!” The traps in this installment are the biggest and goriest by far, so there’s a lot of screaming.
First Foreign Trip
Cuba, when I was a kid. I remember leaving the resort, and an old woman kept looking at me. Then she came up and tried to touch my lips. It was weird till I realized she had never seen lip gloss, so I gave her mine. I’ve been back since as an adult, and no one has tried to touch my lips.
It was for the role of Helen in Troy with Brad Pitt. I had just come in from Toronto. I had nothing, just $80 in my pocket. All these girls were auditioning in, I don’t want to say togas, but, like, drapey dresses. I came in with ripped jeans and a T-shirt. I was the modern-day Helen of Troy!
First Racy Role
On the show Threshold, I played an alien stripper named Candy Cane. I infected Peter Dinklage and turned him into an alien. I had a death scene where he’s supposed to be hit by a lamp, but I was underneath him in bed, and it kept hitting me instead. After my mom saw it, she was like, “Wow.”
