EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH ISABELLA DAWSON ON THE SET OF CROWLEY’S TOMB

Young Dead Girl 9

Q- How did you get into acting?

I started by going to acting seminars (which were in reality was just a scam for money) so that proved unsuccessful, so my Dad and I took matters into our own hands by attending open casting call auditions and after booking my first indie film we began looking for agents which I then signed with Diamond and now I am actively attending auditions and pursuing my dream!

Q- What movie star influenced you on your way to becoming an actress?

Well, I must say I’ve always been a fan of Jennifer Lawrence, from the first time I saw her act I was mesmerized by her performance. She has a way to captivate the audience, by digging deep and transforming herself into her character. She has a certain intensity when she acts and it’s always influenced me to one day replicate that intensity and capture the same emotion she does. Oh, and she’s won an Oscar and that’s pretty cool 🙂

Q-What other roles have you played before Crowley’s Tomb?

I’ve done a lot of theater but as for film, I played a troubled super hero teen in the independent film ‘White Angel’, I was in a PSA to raise Rhino Extinction awareness at Full Sail University, I acted as an abused girlfriend in a music video at called ‘Bring Light to a World’ over at UCF, and I am about to start a production called ‘Indigo: The Gathering’ playing the role of Evelyn.

Q-Do you prefer to play villains or Heroes? Why?

Well, as of now I’ve never played a hero but from what I’ve done I feel like villains bring such a dramatic intensity to any film and it’s really fun to portray that.

Q- If you could be in any movie what would it be and why?

This is a hard one for sure so I’m going to have to narrow it done my top two. I would LOVE to play Eponine in the Les Miserables film. Her character is so beautifully tragic and I think playing that character would be such a big challenge, but in every good way. As well as Les Miserables, I would have loved to play Rose in Titanic because it’s such a powerful role, and I think there’s  lot of different ways to portray her.

Q- Where did you hear about the casting call for Crowley’s Tomb?

My Dad is my manager and I believe he found the part of Green Room Orlando casting website.

Q- What interested you in being part of Crowley’s Tomb?

My extreme love for acting and playing demented, eccentric characters.

Q- Are you a horror fan?

Despite the countless nightmares I get after watching  a horror film, I love the adrenaline I get when I’m scared so yes, I would consider myself a fan of horror.

Q- What character did you play in Crowley’s Tomb?

I played Lola, the little ghost girl.

Q- What can you tell us about your character?

She’s much younger than my age in actuality, and recently has been transformed into a ghost like figure, by being possessed. I must admit she does some crazy things…

Q- What were some of your favorite moments on the set of Crowley’s Tomb?

I loved getting my makeup done and transforming into a pale ghost with dark circles under my eyes and getting all dirty.

Q- Tell is about what the atmosphere was like on set in the cemetery?

I was a little creeped out while I was crawling on all the graves and couldn’t help but wonder if there was any other presence with us…

Q- Do you have any ghost or paranormal activity stories to share with us today?

Not any that stood out but I must say I was getting strange vibes while we were filming.

Q- What was it like working with an all star team such as Writer Casey Moore, Director Ricardo Protheus Rodriquez, and Producer Nathan Taupez?

It was amazing! I always felt comfortable while filming and I was in an environment where I had fun experimenting with different things. They were all supportive and understanding and gave helpful feedback after takes.

Q- What horror movies impacted you growing up?

I have always loved the movie The Exorcist and Paranormal Activity.

Q- What current projects are you working on?

As said in a previous question I’m about to start a film called Indigo: The Gathering while playing the role of Evelyn, a teen being prepped for human trafficking.

Q- What actor or actress did you think stood out on the set of Crowley’s Tomb other than yourself?

I think Jarred Burgos did really well at always looking intense and scary as a Cemetery Boy and also Delilahs character.

Q- If you could be any character in Crowley’s Tomb who would it be and why?

Delilah for sure, I love playing the damsel in distress.

Q- Away from acting what are some of your hobbies?

I love to write fiction stories and go on coffee dates with my friends.

Q- What did you think after you saw the trailer of Crowley’s Tomb?

I was utterly impressed with the entire cast’s performance, and the editing and special effects were fantastic! It was so eerie and gave me chills! I enjoyed seeing how everyone’s hard work came together to create this completely awesome trailer!

Q- What would you like the fans to know about yourself?  

I’d like the fans to know acting is my passion and I am not looking at stopping anytime soon so keep your eye out because you never know where I could end up 🙂
