Actress Cortney Palm Discusses New Crime Thriller, "Sushi Girl" - Page 3
CP: When I mentioned that I'm drawn to powerful women..she's not. But, she has to fight to survive and that's what makes it fun to play. I love expressing human emotion in films and with 'Silent Night', there's plenty of that! [laughs]
gJg: Tell me about the infamous wood chipper scene.
CP: That was a fun scene to film. We really had a great team of people. Steven (Miller, Director) had a great vision and Joe (White, Cinematography) was right alongside of him making it work with me running through the trees.
gJg: Are you a fan of horror?
CP: I am a fan of the genre. I like movies like "The Ring", "Mirrors" and "Silent Hill".
gJg: What projects are you currently working on?
CP Right now, I'm working on 'Fringes' where I play a rabbi's daughter. It's the story about a Jewish community and a Catholic community at odds with one another, but when things start to break down around them they have to rely on each other to get through. It's a brotherhood story.
gJg: Tell me a little bit about your tattoos.
CP: I have several and all of them are real. On my inside right arm I have the quote "For peace with justice in harmony with nature". On my wrist I have a gecko with the initials "LP" for Lake Powell. It's significant to me because that's one of my favorite places to go. The gecko also represents strength, agility and conservation. That's important to remember in our world and our lifestyle. We need to conserve the land and enjoy what nature has to offer.
On my side I have the quote "Float Upon Sturdy Waters". Even though water isn't really sturdy (because you sink down into it) you can float upon the surface and make it sturdy. You choose your own destiny.
