Mike Gencarelli: How was it working with Tim Sullivan and the cast again of “2001 Maniacs”, What was your favorite moment on the set?
Christa Campbell: Tim is amazing,since the first film we have become very close, he is just so great to work with, i had the best time ever filming the sequel, but possible the flashdance scene was the most fun.

Mike Gencarelli: You just remake the classic “Rin Tin Tin”, in a film called “Cool Dog”, tell us how was it working on your first family film?
Christa Campbell: It was nice considering I’ve done all these crazy movies,then to change it up and do a family film, it just blew me away how good the kids were, they were great actors! the movie is adorable, there won’t be a dry eye in the room.

MG: You started in horror movies, but you are branching out doing dramas, thrillers and comedies? How does it compare?
CC: I’m an actor, I’m trained to do it all. Definitely I’ve bonded with a lot of the horror fans. I enjoy making those films the most. I like to fight or kick ass to do something crazy, whether its an action film or horror its all the same, it’s more about the role.

MG: Did you feel any pressure in starring in the remake of the classic film ” Day of the Dead”?
CC: No, I always knew we were making an original film with the same name. We were never copying the original. We had Steve Miner Directing, so we just followed his lead.

MG: How do you typically prepare for your characters you play?
CC: After I read the script, I usually have some ideas in my head. Once you get on set and see the environment, you can expand there and you discover a lot in rehearsal.

MG: If you had any means what would be your dream project to make?
CC: Yep, a bad-ass big budget action film

MG: What is your favorite film that you have made? Least favorite?
CC: If I answered this question, I would get a lot of pissed off people calling me. Trust me if have a “worst” favorite it is hard, cause they are all my favorite for different reasons

MG: You are co-starring alongside Nicholas Cage for the second time in the upcoming “Drive Angry”, first time being 2006’s “The Wicker Man”, How is it working with Nic Cage again?
CC: He is amazing. He’s a generous person, a great actor and its very cool.

MG: What is in store for your future? Any other exciting roles?
CC: We will have to wait and see!
