This past Monday, we celebrated another Gal-entine’s Day in Los Angeles with our fellow local lady geeks. Gal-entine’s is the celebration of female friendship started by Chubby Bunny and this is her fifth year hosting the event. What started as an excuse to dress up with a small group of our friends turned into a party that women look forward to. It’s really cool to see everyone get together and celebrate the fact that we’re girls.

INTERVIEW: Brea Grant of Apocalyptic Buddy Film ‘Best Friends Forever’

BFF Poster Many of you may know Brea Grant from her roles in shows such as Heroes, Dexter, and Friday Night Lights. Recently she and fellow female actor Vera Miao collaborated to write a road trip buddy story about two women. Not only is this awesome because we so rarely get to see this genre with female characters, but it also happens to take place at the beginning of the apocalypse. Apparently somebody forgot to tell the two main characters, played by Grant and Miao, that the end is kind of nigh. This story is called Best Friends Forever and is Grant’s debut as a co-writer and director of a film.  

Grant was awesome enough to take the time to answer some burning questions we had about this project. In this interview she talks about what it was like to direct for the first time, what sets Best Friends Forever apart from other apocalyptic stories, what she hopes people will take away from the film, and what superpowers she would choose if she were facing the apocalypse. Check it out, folks!

Not only do you star in this movie, but you also co-wrote it with Vera Miao and directed it. What was it like to be involved not just in front, but behind the camera?

Very different from me. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I learned about filmmaking. I think as an actor I had this attitude that I knew so much about movie-making and I really didn’t know anything. I have a new respect for the entire process.
And overall, it was really difficult. It was hard to separate out my ego and insecurities as an actor from being a team player and trying to give other people what they needed. It was one of the toughest (probably the toughest) things I’ve done in my whole career but it was also very rewarding. I have this amazing thing that I went and did and not many people can say that.
