For this shoot, I wanted to wink at Danielle’s scream queen background, so late in the shoot, I brought in a knife and some blood. I have to say this: Danielle knows her way around some fake blood. We had her licking it off of the knife and her fingers and I swear she could have told us the brand and vintage without looking at the bottle. In the end, we don’t see the knife in this set (but it will come into play in the next one we post, I promise), but there is one awesome shot of her licking it off her finger that is a promise of things to come.
Danielle was awesome. She’s very comfortable in front of the camera, knows how to pose, and knows her body really well. Oh, and beautiful! Leather suited this look perfectly.
We also asked her a couple of burning questions about the life of a scream queen in-between takes. Take a look:
IHG: What horror movie scares you the most?
Danielle: Anything with aliens.
IHG: What was the most exhilarating scene you’ve ever shot and why?
Danielle: I did a full-on girl fight John Wayne-style with Lacy Chabert in my upcoming film, Ghost of Goodnight Lane. I love a good girl bar brawl!
IHG: What’s your favorite thing to do to kill time waiting around on set?
Danielle: Sleep whenever I can and eat Red Vines from craft service!
IHG: What’s the best thing about horror conventions?
Danielle: After 10 hours of chatting and signing stuff with my awesome fans, I love having a little mini-vacation in my hotel room, ordering room service and watching Storage Wars on TV in bed!
IHG: Do you embrace the term “scream queen”?
Danielle: Absolutely. Wouldn’t have it any other way!
