Here is the transcribed version by
1. How did your part in the movie come about?
Well, I have starred in 14 Lifetime movies, so I had
worked with the director [Christine Conradt] when she was
writing -- She wrote several of the Lifetime movies in which
I've starred. So, when she did her directorial debut, she
asked me to play a part in it.
2. How long did it take to shoot?
Three weeks, which is typical for a Lifetime movie.
3. Where was it shot?
We shot in LA.
4. The role of the police detective is a pivotal one.
Have you played a cop before?
Yes, I have, actually -- quite a few times in several
other Lifetime movies. I've done ride-alongs with the police
and gone to a shooting range to practice, so I know I've
played cops at least 3 or 4 times.
5. So was it pretty comfortable for you? Or did you have
to work on how to be a cop?
I'm never comfortable carrying a gun, frankly. I'm okay
with the badge, but I really don't like shooting guns. I
didn't have to shoot a gun in this one luckily.
6. Did you do anything special to get to know the other
cast members before shooting?
Well, no. Because my character doesn't know any of them
in the script, then it wouldn't be helpful to my character
or my role or the film for me to get to know them. I,
actually, did know Jamie Luner, however, who plays the
mother of one of the young girls.
7. Why do you think kids get into pranking or bullying?
Well, this is your modern-day mean girl, and it's a very
powerful position to be anonymous on the Internet, and I
think that in my day, when we didn't have the Internet, kids
bullied another way. I'm sure there's a brain reason why. I
know that their impulse control is not developed yet when
they're teenagers, so they do stupid, stupid things, and
they don't think of the consequences. So that's boys, but
this is girls. So, it's one of the reasons that insurance
companies charge you more if you're under 25, because the
impulse control is not great. So, I think it's hormonal and
biological, probably some kind of learned dominance, but
also because the power, in terms of -- You know, I didn't
bully anybody when I was a kid, so it doesn't have to
happen. I'm sure my brain wasn't much different. But, you
know, the power of anonymity can make people do really cruel
things, because they don't have to take responsibility for
the consequences, usually. In this movie, they do. It's so
complicated that I wouldn't know much about the
psychological, but I think a lot of people are mean to other
people because they feel bad about themselves, and it's a
way for them to feel better. And especially if you're
anonymous, then you can even go farther. 25% of people say
they were bullied at some point or another, and that's a big
number, so the topic is timely in that way.
8. What would you like fans to know about the movie?
Well, I think that this movie is interesting on several
levels. First, it deals with something very timely, which is
how we all communicate on the Internet through social media,
but this is how you can do it in a way that is destructive.
Secondly, I find it a real cautionary tale, because what
happens in the end is slightly shocking. It doesn't all wrap
up in a nice, neat bow. When I read the script, I actually
went, "Oh, my gosh! Are they really going to do that?"
[Laughs] So, I think it's a good movie for kids and adults
alike to watch, because it's enjoyable, but it has an
important strong message.
9. When people recognize you, is it most for Baywatch, or
Melrose Place, or for the movies?
It's a lot for my Lifetime movies, but also they watch --
When people say, "Oh, you look so familiar." I just throw
out "Baywatch." That's probably the one, because I was only
on the last season of "Melrose Place." But you can go to my
IMDb page and see if there's anything that sticks out to
you. They've definitely seen me on Lifetime before. As Jamie
said to me, "Alexandra, you've starred in more movies than
anyone, and I think I'm second."
10. You're in great shape. What do you do to keep fit?
Well, I'm walking as I'm talking to you right now. I
don't really like to sit. I do cardio six days a week, and
every day I some things to move on top of that. I either
lift or stretch or walk, so even on my days off, I'm moving.
I just like being active. I do my conference calls walking.
Like when I need to do phone calls to my mom, I'm a much
better conversationalist when I'm walking, 'cause I'm not
distracted by anything, and we can chat for a really long
time, and I don't feel like, "Oh, I have to go and do other
things." I'm more focused. Also, I'm a vegan, and I eat
11. What else do you have coming out?
I have a movie called "Firequake" on the SyFy channel,
and I star in that. And then I have a movie called "Dirty"
which is an independent movie. In the US, "Firequake" had a
DVD premiere on May 26 of this year.
