Interview: Lucy-Jane Quinlan

Lucy-Jane Quinlan has had a successful career on both stage and screen, most recently appearing in the upcoming horror remake Unhinged (2017). We had the chance to speak to her about her role in the film, her career so far and other projects she is involved in.

How did you first get into acting?

I wanted to do musical theatre, I thought that was the only path for me, so at 17 years old I was in my first year of sixth form and I found this college that I wanted to go to called Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and it was a degree course. I was one of the eldest in my year so I would have only been 17, and then three weeks in I would have been 18. I thought why not just go for it. I am just going to tell them the truth, this is my age, but can I come in.

Dead Wood (DVD Review)

  • Fangoria
Dead Wood is a rather risky title to put on movie belonging to a subgenre (kids go to the woods…kids get dead, to borrow the title of a recent satire/homage to the form) that has seen plenty of dead wood of its own. This particular example, crafted by three British film-school pals, doesn’t blaze any trails of originality, but the movie—and especially the special features on Lionsgate’s DVD—suggests that as fledgling feature-makers, they’re on the right path.

Following the expected opening teaser in which a hapless victim (David Bryant, who scripted Dead Wood and directed, produced, photographed and edited it with Sebastian Smith and Richard Stiles) meets his maker, we’re introduced to our vanful of protagonists. Webb (Fergus March) and Larri (Emily Juniper) are an established couple, while their weekend camping trip is something of a blind date for her cousin Milk
