Brooke Bundy [Interview]

Hello there dear readers! We are back with another exciting interview, this time somewhat going back to the well of amazing folks involved with one of our most prized genres….the world of horror. Yes, die hard horror fans will automatically connect the great Brooke Bundy to some of the most fascinating chapters of the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. She was of course Elaine Parker from the Dream Masters inclusion of the series. The ones I enjoyed the most, if not only for the much needed inclusion of the band Dokken and Tuesday Knight.

But, Brooke Bundy has been a staple of the silver screen, television, and the theatre for over 50 years, and has been on just about every TV show you can shake a digital stick at. Including other projects that we have regularly featured here at Trainwreck’d Society like the gem of a Soap Opera, General Hospital, right around to Star Trek: Next Generation. Throw in some appearances on classic shows like The Brady Bunch, The Mod Squad, Charlie’s Angels, Lassie, and on and on, she is a freaking American treasure! And we are so excited to have gotten a few nice words from her to share with you all today. So ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy some words from the legendary actress, Brooke Bundy!

When did you decide that you wanted to join the world of acting? What initially drew you to this world?

I never wanted to be an actress. I was modeling in NYC and went to a school for young professionals, my class mate was Christopher Walken who suggested I audition for a Broadway Play he was in and I did and I got it.

What was it like the first time you saw your name appear in the credits of a project you worked on? Do you remember what you were doing at that time, and how it made you feel?

Great question I have the same feeling every time, it’s very out of body and I look at it and think this was serious this was real.

Your involvement in the legendary A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise with Dream Warriors and The Dream Master, was an absolute highlight of the series for sure. How was your experience working on such a legendary film series. What was the set life like on such frightening tales?

I had always turned down horror scripts, I didn’t want someone sitting in a dark theater to think “hey that looks like a good idea” and do something awful. But my wonderful agent talked me into it and it’s the gift that keeps giving. The set was great I think that starts from the top and Robert Englund is the consummate pro, a gentleman and a cool dude.

Beyond just the Nightmare series, you have done an extensive amount of work in the world of television, appearing on just about every major TV show there was, regardless of genre, for a very long period of time. What was it about the world of television that made you enjoy working in it?


According to IMDb, you added the title of “associate producer” to your resume with the 2006 film Amber Benson project, Lovers, Liars and Lunatics, which I have not seen but am very interested in. How did you find yourself involved with this project? What drew you to it?

Tuesday Knight discovered Amber and I was a young actors’ agent and Tuesday sent her to me, I fell in love with her such an amazing actress booked her on a lot of projects  and she generously gave me screen credit.

What does the future hold for you? Anything you would like to tell our readers about?

Opportunities to meet fans and I do private coaching.

What was the last thing that made you smile?

I like to think of smiling as a cause not an effect. Smile all the time.
