A Conversation with Actress Gabrielle Stone
Gabrielle Stone has acting in her genes.
Her mother is none other than the amazing Dee Wallace (“The Hills Have Eyes”, “E.T”, “Cujo” among many other great films) and her father is the late Christopher Stone who also appeared in a multitude of films and TV shows as well.
2012 will be a breakout year for Gabrielle. She has no less than four film projects scheduled for release and is currently working alongside her legendary Mom in another.
And then there’s the one in which she plays a role she knows very well.
Gabrielle will be portraying herself in the upcoming movie “CUT!”, a story which indirectly pays homage to the classic horror film “The Hills Have Eyes” and co-stars Suze Lanier-Bramlett, another amazing actress who starred alongside Gabrielle’s Mom in the original film.
“CUT!” also features the talents of David Rountree, William McNamara, David Banks and Dahlia Salem.
Here is a quick synopsis of “CUT!” from the film’s website:
Nothing is as it seems as an ex-con and aspirant filmmaker set out to manufacture a horror film by scaring real people; however, when it goes too far and someone actually dies, the pair decide that killing for real on film is the way to make a truly terrifying movie.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Gabrielle and discussing “CUT!” as well as some of her other upcoming projects! She also tells me what it was like growing up in an acting family.
goJimmygo (gJg): Gabrielle, it’s so great to speak with you!
Gabrielle Stone (GS): It’s great to speak with you too!
gJg: Tell me a little bit about “CUT!”
GS: “CUT!” was so much fun because I actually got to play myself. David Rountree is such a great director. I loved working with him and everyone else in cast as well. They’re all fantastic!
gJg: David (Rountree) wears several hats in this movie. He wrote, directed and stars in it as well.
GS: That’s right! It’s really his “baby”. I haven’t seen any of the final footage myself but from the people I’ve spoken with who have, it’s REALLY good!
gJg: What was it like working with Suze Lanier-Bramlett?
GS: Suze is awesome. She’s so full of life and is absolutely wonderful. We had a great time together. In a way it was kind of like coming full circle because she did the original “The Hills Have Eyes” with my Mom. It was very cool to be on set with her.Continued on the next page
