Monsters in the Woods Interviews_Gladys Otero

Over the next few weeks I’ll be conducting several mini interviews with the cast and crew of Monsters in the Woods. 1st up Gladys Otero.
Gladys as Bianca
Monsters in the Woods was my 1st experience directing Gladys. She is one of the most open and game actors I’ve ever met. She embraced everything that was asked of her with Gusto. I think that she, like her character, is a survivor and just loves living life.


1.Tell me who you are and what you are doing here.  

GLADY O. MAKING A BITCHASS MONSTER MOVIE

2.Monsters in the Woods in the Woods is our 1st feature together. How wonderful was it for you to work with me?  

IT WAS SO GREAT. I WILL PRAISE YOU THE CLICHE WAY CUS YOU DESERVE THAT. " The director was amazing etc etc" but I will also add HOW INCREDIBLE AND ORIGINAL AND CREATIVE YOU ARE. IT HAS BEEN SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN AND AGAIN.

3. You had to perform a good deal of the movie in Spanish. How was it working Bilingually? Did it affect your approach? 

I HAD TO BECOME A LITTLE ANTI SOCIAL WHILE SHOOTING THE SPANISH SCENES. I FOUND THAT IT HELPED ME ESTABLISH WHO BIANCA WAS. IT WAS INTERESTING BUT I HAVE TO SAY I WAS MORE RELAXED WHEN I COULD FINALLY SPEAK ENGLISH. HAHA

4.What’s your acting method?  

DEPENDS ON MY MOOD FOR THE DAY

5. You played opposite your real life love interest in Monsters in the Woods. How was that?  

IT WAS INTERESTING. KIND OF LIKE ROLE PLAYING :) I THINK WE KEEP A HEALTHY BALANCE BETWEEN WORK AND OUR PERSONAL LIVES. 

6. What's it like being blasted with and then spending most of the day drenched in blood. (You look stunning all bloody by the way).

OMBAG. IT WAD GREAT AND PAINFUL AT THE SAME TIME CUS IT GOT STICKY!! ON THE FLIP SIDE I SMELLED AMAZING HAHA   

7. Do you prefer me with or without a beard?  

A LITTLE OF BOTH 

*sorry, we were looking for with,

8. You've recently moved into producing. Can you tell me a bit about that? I

LOVE IT. BEING I THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CAMERA HAS GIVEN ME SO MANY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES. I DEFINITELY WANT TO KEEP PURSUING BOTH ENDS OF THE SPECTRUM. AND THEN SOME. 

9. Which cast member would definitely drink you under the table?  

IT’S A TOSS UP AMONGST LIKE 10 of us. 
 *sorry we were looking for John Mcgil.

10. What are you working on next?
