Thanks for coming by...
“My brain wanted to go to the Olympics, my knees did not.“By the age of 14, she had her third knee surgery and that was the deciding factor of when she started focusing on her next love, acting.
“As a kid, I had this correlation between gymnastics and acting. I figured if I was a really good gymnast, I’d go to the Olympics. If I went to the Olympics & I won the gold medal, I’d be on the Wheaties Box. If I get to be on the Wheaties Box, I get to do commercials. If I got to do commercials, then I’d be discovered and get to be an actor.“Of course, she had to own up to telling her parents she wanted to be an actress and it took a bit before the parents came around to this idea. Dad was very academically focused!
“I want to apologize in advance for being the mother of the replicators. My bad!“She still gets some angst from the occasional fan about that role.
“I’m incredibly blessed and lucky that someone would take the time to watch the thing that I’m doing.“-
“She’s the smartest person in the room, always. She has this personality quirk of having no filter what so ever. This means that she says things that are inappropriate. She never means anything bad about it.“About being the smartest person, she says about her character that,
“Other people try to disagree with her and they always find out later that they were wrong.“What was the funnest part about filming Red Faction: Origins?
“Tess’s lines.”When Does Red Faction: Origins Take Place?
“Kreisberg’s writing style is very easy-going and my character has a lot of great one-liners that come out of nowhere, that are bound to be on the DVD. Red Faction is a very serious movie with circumstances with high stakes & Tess is always the moment of levity that comes in.”
“So we all had a great time doing these super intense scenes.”
“The movie does a great job exploring the characters in the franchise and gives the viewer back story as to what will lead up to ultimately the game that comes out on Tuesday, “Red Faction: Armageddon.” This connection between movie and computer game is called trans-media.“Oh gang, by the way, Danielle says this about “Red Faction,”
“I love first-person shooters and can probably beat anybody in any first-person shooter.“In other words she is pretty sure she can kick your butt in FPS game-play.
“The hardest part about it was being so far from home.“They were filming in Eastern Europe in the dead of winter, but they had to shoot there to replicate a terraformed Mars.
“The conditions were really rugged and challenging.“Is working on a Sci-Fi show different than working on your previous dramas?
“I didn’t carry any guns on The Starter Wife.”Are there any hot scenes that your fans can look forward to?
“I was always in make-up and wore high-heels in The Starter Wife.”
“There are more elaborate sets and you can dive in to that suspension of disbelief. As an actor that can be more fun.“
“There’s one scene in the jail cell, that would be a matter of opinion, if one finds it hot. We’ll leave it at that.“How physical was the shoot?
“There was a lot of physicality to the shoot. There was this amazing cave system that is right outside the border of Romania in an area called Lukovit, where we shot all the Mars exterior scenes. We didn’t shoot in front of a green screen.”=
“It’s this insane cave system that was very special to be at.“
“Study and be fearless.“She expounded on that by saying that
“Some people I see are fearless, but ignore the craft… the art form. While some will study and are truly talented but they’re not fearless. They seem afraid to leap into void and give it a go… to take that risk and go to L.A. and N.Y..“I asked her is there was anyone or anything she’d like to send a shout out to….
“I’d like to send a shout out to Cinema Static.org!“(Gang, I did not prompt her! I have a fan. Hooya!!!)
“As I’m sitting in my rocking chair at Lake Como, Italy, I would like to know that, setting aside the idea of AWARDS and such, I’d like to know that I made people laugh and forget their problems for a couple of hours in this life.“
“No 2, I would like to know that I left behind some sort of improvement in the way people will view African American women on television and in film. I would like to know that I broke through and altered at least one stereotype in my lifetime.“
“If I do that much, the rest is gravy.“=
