A few years ago, I had the immense privilege and honor of interviewing Ms. Briana Evigan, actress and dancer of Step Up 2, Step Up 4, Sorority Row and Burning Bright at New York Comic Con. She is no stranger to horror and action and her film roles demonstrate a ferocity very few young actresses possess this day and age. Not only is she beautiful and strong but she has a unique personality. Each project she’s involved in is better off having her on board. At the time of the interview below, Briana was promoting Zenescope Entertainment’s Grimm Fairy Tales animated series. Here’s how that interview went down:
I recently caught up with charming and personable director Greg Carter. Mr. Carter wrote and directed 2014’s Lap Dance, a film based on his own life that involves his fiancé taking a job as an exotic dancer.
I understand that ‘Lap Dance’ was inspired by actual events in your life.
Greg Carter: Yeah, it was, yeah. Crazy, crazy.
How far would you go to care for a sick loved one? What would you do to ensure that they get the very best care? The answers to these questions and more are answered in the new indie drama Lap Dance, a film which explores the relationship between people and people doing things that aren’t very favorable. Sacrifice is the main theme presented and while not a perfect film, it does offer some decent performances, a clever premise and some top notch direction.
