Clatto Exclusive Interview: Sexy Starlet Denise Williamson Talks Bigfoot Thriller ‘Exists,’ Urban Legends & Clowns!
Denise Williamson has battled Killer School Girls from Outer Space, brought it on at a deadly Spirit Camp and faced Mexican horrors in Border Break (and, no, we’re not talking street vendor burritos). Her most frightening foe is yet to come, however, in Blair Witch director Eduardo Sanchez’s Big Foot thriller Exists.
Denise was kind enough to talk about shooting Exists, working with Sanchez, Big Foot and urban legends and her fear of clowns.
MUERTOS: Tell us about Exists and the character you play?
DENISE: Exists is about a group of friends who venture into the remote Texas woods for a party weekend and find themselves stalked by Bigfoot. My character Elizabeth (Liz) isn’t exactly the outdoorsy type and is ill prepared for a weekend in the woods. She also doesn’t deal with being hunted by a big hairy ape man very well. But ya know, who would?
MUERTOS: The film is directed by Eduardo Sanchez. What was it like working with the guy who gave us The Blair Witch Project? Any unflattering close-ups of your runny nose?
DENISE: Working with Eduardo was great! He gave us a base and allowed us to build on top of that and go where we wanted with our characters. We had a week of rehearsals which gave us the opportunity to work and develop who we wanted our characters to be.
He let us be a part of the creative process and was open to letting us try different things. Personally, he is just a laid back guy who you can go have a beer with and talk about the craziest things.
