Belinda Gavin [Interview]

during the , at the , Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Friday, February 13, 2015.

 

Long time readers of TWS will know, we like to explore all aspects of art in cinema, literature, music, etc. And we appreciate ALL aspects of such things, in any way shape or form. We do not discriminate when it comes to positive artistic expression, even if some of the material is not for the faint of heart. I feel like I can make the honest assessment that there are very few of you out there who would even come close to being classified as the “faint of heart”. And this is why I am so excited to share with you this lovely interview with a woman I consider to be the sort of modern day feminist we need in this world. The wonderfully talented actress, producer, and so much more, Belinda Gavin.

Gavin has spent the last two decades showing the world that it is perfectly acceptable to be an attractive woman who is not afraid to show off her sexuality as an exceptional addition to her craft as an actress. Her work spawns from the goriest of horror films (which we all know we here at TWS love), to dramatic roles, and to films of the more classy erotic genres. Hell, she has done it all, she’s even been a competitor on American Gladiators. This is a woman who has the skill set to do whatever she damn well pleases, and you better believe she is going to do just that. And there really can be no more admiral trait than that in any human person. Belinda does Belinda, and she plays her roles as if she does not give a damn what you think, she just wants to enjoy yourself with her work in the variety of aspects she has been so kind to share with the world.

So with that, please enjoy some very nice words from our new friend here at Trainwreck’d Society, the very talented Belinda Gavin!


So, horror films may not be your entire mainstay in the film world, but you have done a LOT of work in them. So, if I could, I would like to know what draws you to the world of horror?

I love horror, any type of horror. Gore scream suspense old new si fi zombie creature ghosts satan all of it! I especially like it when I DONT die but I am OK with dying if it is a cool way.

When you hear about, or get pitched, a horror film, what are you generally looking for?

When I look through castings I generally look for anything that suits me and looks like fun. It is so important to work with people you like and keep it fun.

And how do you enjoy this line of work?

I love acting and I have not been able to do much since being back in Australia for the past few years but I have done some really fun things including producing and it is always great to be a part of a production.

You are widely known for roles in films of a more erotic nature, as well as horror films. Which brings me to my next question about a relationship that is as old as time: sex and horror. In your personal experience and expertise, what do you believe it is that makes the two work so well together?

Sex sells and horror generically sells itself. I love seeing a beautiful woman or man get killed by anything! LOL a giant ant, a giant man, a small woman LOL I love blood and gore!!

It has been said that during sex and dying, you are at your most honest. Do you believe this to be true? What are your thoughts on the matter?

When I am shooting a movie I am acting so it is always a different character that is having sex then getting killed. I am honest to my character and then to my boundaries as a actor. As a person I am brutally honest, all the time 🙂


How did you find yourself in the line of work that you are in now?

I am many things other than an actor. Personal Trainer, Champion Rodeo competitor, American Gladiator competitor, Aunt, sister, event manager, stunt driver, bartender etc. But I will always be a performer. I love becoming a character and convincing people that the experience is real enough to move them to wards some feeling, whatever that may be. anger, sorrow, horror, fear.


Did you always want to be an actress, or did you sort of stumble into it?

I always wanted to be an actress and still want to continue acting. I like comedy too. I love all aspects of production. What is your story dear Belinda? LOL maybe check out this page to get details about that…

I simply cannot pass up the chance to ask about the film Reservoir Cats. Can you tell us a bit about this film, and what your experience was like working on this one?

This was an amazing film to work on. Great idea and great scene for me 🙂 I really loved that experience and look at doing more like this in 2017.

After a bit of research, I noticed you have some crazy damned hobbies! Would you care to tell our readers about some of the crazy shit you are into (rodeos, racing, etc.) and how you got into these things?

I have ridden horses all my life since I was 5 years old. I love having horses in my life and when I was living in LA acting and working hard I realized I needed a grounding outlet-horses. My BFF at the time had a ranch and competed in the Gay Rodeo Association he talked me into competing with him and I did so for 10 years. These were amazing times. All over the states riding and at times flying back to LA to shoot movies, it was a dream come true.

So, what does the future hold for you? Anything you would like to promote here?

LOL, I was due to come back to LA in 2016 but that changed and I am now an event manager for a good friend of mine. It is a larger scale of production and I love it. There are many things I still want to achieve and acting is always in that list.

 

What was the last thing that made you smile?

Waking up this morning 🙂
