Monsters in the Woods Interviews_Ashton Blanchard

What can I say about Ashton? She's my Deniro. No wait. Annemarie is my Deniro. Ashton's my Harvey Keitel. I've known Ashton for a few years now. I first met her when she auditioned for Trap. The thing I noticed 1st about her was her boots. Honestly I don't really recall her initial audition except for her boots, her big blue eyes and the fact that I thought she was very cool. Which is why I called her back for the role of Tennessee in Trap. And I'm glad I did, cuz she's the real deal. 

Ashton Blanchard as the script girl.

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

I am Ashton Lynette Blanchard and I am here to ROCK.

2.Monsters in the Woods is our 2nd movie in a row. How would you describe our working relationship?

We've worked together???? Oh, oh yes. Now I remember. Our working relationship is so: you love me, i love you and we love making movies together.

3. Did you prefer shooting one over the other?

HHHmm. Well I always prefer being the star, in life and in movies.BAHAHA. But I knew you better on the set of monsters and we had swank digs and I got to scream and slap someone and get my brains blown out (wait that happened in both movies, geez Jason is there something you wanna tell me?)...Over all Monsters was a fun ass time. 

4.What’s your method? How did you approach your role in Monsters in the Woods?

How I approach all my acting gigs. Be truthful. Be bold. And Be praying like a motherfucker that it comes off as genius as I know that I am.

5. How would you describe your character in Monsters in the Woods?

Scripty is fun loving with a heart of gold but at the same time a bit bitter and untrusting of people. She is a tough ass scrapper and no one says when she dies but her.

6. How’s being covered in blood?

When you think about it, it's awesome. When it first happens, it's awesome. Five minutes later, not so awesome.

7. How would describe my eyes?

Your eyes are of the bluest skies and if they thought of rain, I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain.....Wait, what? OH, that's how guns n roses would describe your eyes.

* We were actually looking for "You eyes are as deep and clear as a Minnesota lake. I want to take off all my clothes and skinny dip in them." We'd have also accepted "blue-green."

8. You have a lot of chemistry in the movie with both Glenn Plummer and Lee Perkins, What was it like working with them?

It was so great to work with both of them and I learned a lot. But mostly it was just, easy. That's one of the perks of having good chemistry, you don't really have to do much work.

9. What’s your worst onset Monsters in the Woods memory?

REALLY? Alright here goes. Facial Prosthetic being put on. Walking around the woods with facial prosthetic. Bloody hair clumping and sticking to facial prosthetic. Facial Prosthetic being taken off. And typing the words, facial prosthetic. You asked!

9.5 What’s your best?

Drinking in the Starbucks parking lot with Annmarie. Drinking in that humongous bed with Annmarie. KFC. Listening to Glenn's crazy ass stories. Hillary jamming out to 'Ain't no way' by Aretha. Acting with Lee. That big ass cheese you get when you say cut and you know you got a good shot. And.....KFC.

10. What are you working on next?

 I just booked my first network gig! I will be a series recurring on a new show for MTV called Petito Feo created my Bert V. Royal the writer of Easy A. I am playing Bridgit, the awkward, quirky, cheery geek with a heart of gold. No one says when she dies but her either. I am just ON with the wit!
