I’m always a fan of podcasting with people that are involved in the making of the films I watch. Even though I have recorded/edited/hosted etc over 310 episodes in the years I have been at this, I never tire of the excitement of spending some time chatting with actors, producers, editors, writers and anyone else who loves movies.Last weekend I was able to spend an hour and a half talking with one of my favourite actors (or actresses if you still haven’t gotten around to using equal job titles) The wonderful Pollyanna McIntosh. Pollyanna and I have been swapping tweets now and again on Twitter for an age now, and I have seen so many of her films and shows over the years. Easily my favourites include The Woman, Exam, White Settlers and Let Us Prey but it turns out her first onscreen role was a film I saw many moons ago. Irvine Welsh’s The Acid House.
Where do you start when it comes to prepping to speak with someone you are a fan of? Well you just dont prep, the chances are you already know what you are going to say, you just need to make sure it doesn’t all come out at once. Less interview, more conversation.
The podcast went wonderfully as Lauren Rebecca Reid (one of my co hosts on The Horror Show podcast) and myself chatted with Pollyanna about her films, her life and what she does when she isnt making movies.
Lauren and I learned about Hap and Leonard
We learned a lot about Lucky McKee’s The Woman
We learned about White Settlers.
and we learned about Joshua Nolan.
