Interview with Ayvianna Snow

Can you tell us a little about your latest film projects?

I star in cult director Michael Fausti's much anticipated second feature film, Burnt Flowers- it's a haunting and surreal Horror-Noir and I play a mysterious femme fatale, Alice Kyteller, who approaches Detective Franc Alban (Amber Doig-Thorne) to search for her missing husband. In Punch - a gothic, end-of-the-pier slasher film, which is streaming now, I make a cameo as an ill-fated party guest who becomes an unfortunate victim of the local seaside bogeyman, Mr Punch. I also star as a vampire in Sean Cronin's upcoming new film, Bogieville.

Which character/s have you enjoyed playing most in your films so far, and why?

I enjoyed my role in Yellow playing a sex worker; the film is about the misogyny and abuse faced by women who do sex work. I like being able to use my horror platform to shed light on a serious issue, and I am passionate about women's rights. Yellow screens at Romford Horror this month!

What has been your most challenging role to date?

The role of Anna in Derelict was challenging emotionally because of what the character is going through- she is struggling with drug addiction and being forced into prostitution as a result. Whereas Bogieville was challenging on a physical level; lots of jumping around in heavy prosthetic make-up; I even did my own stunts on set!

What recent (and/or classic) horror movie have you watched that has scared or unnerved you?

I love classic horror performances: Tom Cruise in Interview With The Vampire or Gary Oldman in Dracula.

Which horror film have you watched most and why?

I love to rewatch The Shining; it's such a multi-layered film I get something new from it with each viewing.

What's next for you?

Bogieville and Derelict are both out this summer!
