The following is an excerpt from the interview in which the actress discusses her character in “Bounty Killer” - Mary Death, a beautiful and dangerous woman who will slit your throat with a smile.
“This character is a blast. She is very sexy and confident but at the same time she is a very dangerous killer. She is a good guy though. A lot of people have been mistaking her for a bad guy. She's not. She's good. She fights for the right team. She and the other bounty killers are setting the world right again 20 years past the corporate wars. The corporations have fought for rule over the earth and destroyed it and now a council has put some death warrants out on these guys. She is the most famous bounty killer that is going out and putting things right again.
“When you watch the movie, we are not taking this too seriously. We are not really promoting going out and killing CEOs or any type of violence for that matter. ‘Bounty Killer’ is more about comedy than anything. I think that people mistake it for [horror] because it is extremely gory - almost in a cartoonish way because it is so over-the-top - but it is fun to watch because you can’t take it seriously. And you can definitely sleep the night afterward.
“We had a guy named Kris Kobzina, who was a finalist on ‘Face-Off’ this season. He is just amazing. I kept asking him how he even thinks of these things. It is almost disturbing. And he said that he watches movies to find things that have not been done before. It is important to him to be able to actually do the gig. It is not fake. He really has found a way to make a head explode and have brains [come] out of it. He really is a genius at what he does and we were really lucky to have him.” - Christian Pitre
