INTERVIEW: Alisen Down of ‘Gracepoint’

| Posted by | No Comments

unnamedFor those of you looking forward to the upcoming show Gracepoint, you are in for a real treat. I had the pleasure of conducting a phone interview with Alisen Down who stars in the show as the character Kathy Eaton. Alisen was kind enough to take the time to chat with us and talk not only about her character on Gracepoint, but also about breaking away from feminine stereotypes, her love for writing, and her passion for helping endangered elephants. Guys, she’s pretty cool. She also loves Batman, so I might be a little biased.

Check out the interview to learn more about this wonderful actress!

Tell me about your character Kathy on the show Gracepoint.

Kathy is the editor of the local newspaper and I kind of see her as the cautious editor of the newspaper. She’s sort of the voice of Gracepoint. She’s very strong, very smart, and not to be underestimated, but also very kind. I admire her quite a bit as a person, actually.

What has been your favorite thing so far about being on the show?

Many things, really. From the very beginning when they aged me up to play her to meeting Anna Gun and David Tennant and Jackie Weaver and all these amazing actors to working with all the producers who have been so fabulous and working with such well written material. The entire show was a gift.

Blog Tour: The Young Elites — Meet Dante, AKA Spider

Dante Poster

Some hate us, think us outlaws to hang at the gallows.

Some fear us, think us demons to burn at the stake.

Some worship us, think us children of the gods.

But all know us.

MEET DANTE (AKA SPIDER)

Once a blacksmith’s apprentice, Dante is wary of Adelina’s presence on the team. Both hulking and menacing, Spider would like nothing more than to rid himself of the new recruit. Like the others, he is marked as a Young Elite by the dark irregular markings on his neck that go all the way down to his chest. He’s known as the Spider for his abilities to see in darkness.

Warner Bros VIP Studio Tour: The Batman Exhibit

Warner Bros VIP Tour + Batman

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Batman, the Warner Bros VIP Tour‘s museum is currently dedicated to all things Batman movies. For one day, I became a tourist in my own city just to satisfy my geek urges. The tour itself is pretty fun, especially if you love the behind the scenes experience of movie and television. The exhibit itself mostly showcased costumes and props from the Christopher Nolan trilogy  but they added really cool pieces from the 80s and 90s movies as well. There is also a separate warehouse that showcased some of the Batmobiles.

Although, sadly, no Adam West’s Batman.

I recommend this to any local Batman fans . . . or if you happen to be visiting Los Angeles! It’s obnoxiously touristy but get a group of Batfans together in one tour and you’ll probably have tons of fun.
