EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with Actress and Model Mindy RobinsonEXKLUSIVES INTERVIEW mit Schauspielerin und Model Mindy Robinson [ENG]

Mindy who? You may not be alone if the name does not ring a bell at first, unless you are a fan of dating shows like FOX’s ‘Take Me Out’. Yeah, we didn’t think so. But when we were first introduced to Mindy and her shameless Eastcoast humor, we knew there had to be more to this girl than just a pretty face and – well, you know. Turns out, she has a taste for the horror genre and several genre films coming out over the next couple of months, most of which are currently still in post production. Jose Prendes’ ‘The Haunting of Whaley House’, Mike Donahue’s ‘Mansion of Blood’ and the upcoming TV pilot series ‘Hell Hunters’ will all have a dose of Mindy Robinson in them. Carsten caught up for us with Mindy somewhere between a ‘Bikini Spring Break’, the next dating adventure and the preparations for her role as Trixie in ‘Hell Hunters’.Mindy wer? Ihr seid nicht alleine, wenn Euch der Name nicht auf Anhieb etwas sagt, es sei denn Ihr seid amerikanischer Dating-Shows wie ‘Take Me Out’, die gerade in den Staaten auf FOX läuft. Ja, haben wir auch nicht erwartet. Als uns die junge Dame mit dem schamlosen Ostküstenhumor das erste Mal vorgestellt wurde, haben wir uns aber gleich gedacht, das mehr hinter ihr steckt, als nur ein hübsches Gesicht und – na ja, Ihr wisst schon. Und es hat sich herausgestellt, dass Mindy nicht nur das Horror Genre mag, sondern auch gleich in mehreren Genre-Filmen mitgewirkt hat, die innerhalb der nächsten Monate veröffentlicht werden. Unter anderem wäre da Jose Prendes ‘The Haunting of Whaley House’ zu nennen, der zur Zeit in der Nachebarbeitung ist, Mike Donahues ‘Mansion of Blood’, ebenfalls zur Zeit auf dem Schneidetisch, und die in Vorbereitung befindliche TV-Serie ‘Hell Hunters’. Carsten hat sich für uns mit Mindy unterhalten, irgendwo zwischen ‘Bikini Spring Break’, dem nächsten Dating-Abenteure und den Vorbereitungen auf ihre Rolle als Trixie in ‘Hell Hunters’.

Carsten: Hi Mindy, how are you doing?

Mindy Robinson: I’m doing pretty good at staying busy

Carsten: You have been very busy lately and have about a dozen films due out later this year and in 2013. We of course especially noticed Jose Prendes’ ‘The Haunting of Whaley House’ and Mike Donahue’s ‘Mansion Of Blood’…

Mindy Robinson: Mansion of Blood with Gary Busey was my first project ever and it’s about to be preceded out of post production by a few of my more recent projects like Asylum’s The Haunting of Whaley House which we will be promoting at San Diego’s 2012 Comic Con. Also due out soon are a few of the comedies I’ve been in like American Lie, Chicks Dig Gay Guys and Bikini Spring Break.

Carsten: So you go from comedy to drama to horror and back – not even mentioning your work as a model. And there are some TV shows in the mix right now, too?

Mindy Robinson: I’m currently on FOX’s Take Me Out with George Lopez, Thursdays at 8pm playing the easiest role so far… myself. And a new horror series is in the works right now called Hell Hunters. I also show up on different dating shows here and there like Excused, Celebridate, Millionaire Matchmaker and Who Wants to Date a Comedian. I’m witty, I have big boobs, I’m easily cast on dating shows.

Carsten: What got you into all this? How did you get into acting?

Mindy Robinson: I was asked to do background on Mansion of Blood just for fun, but when I showed up Tom Tangen actually had a role that needed filling and I got thrown into the mix and had such a blast on set everyone was like family, that I started trying out for other auditions in LA and did so well that I ended up moving to Hollywood last July.

Carsten: You pretty much seem to do what you like. How do you decide what production to be a part of? What must a project have for you to be interested in it?

Mindy Robinson: I’m really at my best when I get to just show off my personality. A lot of actors snub reality shows but I think getting known and recognized for just being yourself is one of the best feelings in the world. I’ll always be a comedic actress at heart too, I’m not trying to perform Hamlet, you know? Entertainment, should be entertaining. I love horrors, action movies, comedies… you will probably not see the day I’m in a mushy chick flick, unless it ends with the main character getting his guts ripped out.

Carsten: I know you like acting in horror movies. What do you like most about working in the genre?

Mindy Robinson: Clearly I love horror movies, I’ll take a small role just to watch the magic on set. I got to do a fight scene recently in Killjoy 4 in the original boiler room they shot Freddie in! There were all these killer satanic clowns and I was playing this awesome red body painted demon with yellow contacts and horns…this is what I live for!

Carsten: What makes or breaks a good horror movie for you?

Mindy Robinson: I hate it when characters act irrationally. It’s hard to empathize with people when you’re yelling at them for being stupid and making decisions no human being who wants to survive makes.

Carsten: One of your next projects will be the TV pilot series ‘Hell Hunters’. How did you get involved with ‘Hell Hunters’?

Mindy Robinson: I met Lawrence Donini the producer at an event, but I believe that he had found me first on Facebook. Social media is getting more and more important in finding work in the industry, and I’ve obviously made some good friends on it!

Carsten: If you can answer this question at this time; You will play the part of Trixie in ‘Hell Hunters’; what will your character be like?

Mindy Robinson: She is definitely a character that I can’t remember seeing anything like before in any kind of movie… I am so looking forward to this.

Carsten: ‘Hell Hunters’ will have strong elements of the horror and also deal with violence – specifically bullying, which is anything but fiction. What is your take on the problem of bullying as we have it today in society?

Mindy Robinson: I got bullied pretty bad growing up, kids would call me ugly because I was super skinny with huge buck teeth. Braces fixed most of that so that middle school and high school it improved but you carry that around with you for the rest of your life you know. It never stops, there will always be those people that are vocal about how you look good or bad, you just have to ask yourself to look at where it’s coming from and you’ll usually see an angry dick that hates themselves.

Carsten: You said before that some actions, especially violent ones, may be hard to understand but do have a reason and that there may even be a justification for them. Do you think that someone can be purely good or purely evil?

Mindy Robinson: I think we all carry the capability to be good or evil around with us every day, our lives are shaped by the choices we make because of it.

Carsten: Is there a particular character you would like to portrait? Kind of a dream role for you?

Mindy Robinson: A dream role? Any role that can get me on the Starship Enterprise would be a dream role for me!

Carsten: What, or who, inspires you as an actress? Is there an actress or a certain performance that you specifically look up to?

Mindy Robinson: I always liked Goldie Hawn. She was gorgeous and funny… and maybe I look like her a little bit too.

Carsten: Mindy, thank you very much for taking the time for the interview.
