Kristanna Loken Talks Black Rose, Satisfying Her Action Fans, and More!

Published

Black Rose

Alexander Nevsky and Kristanna Loken have teamed up for the crime thriller Black Rose, and it’s surprisingly entertaining to see the two of them onscreen together. Especially for Loken, seeing her in action re-ignites the fandom she generated as the T-X model in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

Loken recently spoke with us about pleasing her fan base, her new roles as producer and mother, and her interest in being in one of the new Star Wars films.

Black Rose

DC: You’ve played so many strong characters, and I know Black Rose really isn’t an exception, but do you also wish that sometimes you’d be considered for more sensitive, dramatic roles? Maybe a mom, since that’s a new thing in your life?

KL: Yeah, that’s a good question. I love to play a whole array of characters without question. I actually have a production company with a couple partners called Trio Entertainment, and we’ve got ten films and two TV series on our slate so, yes, you’ll definitely see me in different types of roles. I’ll be producing behind the camera and possibly even directing. There will be more diversity, and yes, I think I’m much more equipped to play mothers than pre-actual motherhood roles so…

DC: With something like Black Rose, it must be interesting when you’ve got these other films that you’re juggling and have to do press for a film that was actually shot a while back ago, is that right?

KL: It was, yeah. I’m excited that we’re getting a nice little buzz on the film and people seem to really be enjoying it. In the independent film world, you just never know what you’re gonna get. I’ve really got to take my hat off to Alexander, who just eats, sleeps, and breathes his work. He really wanted people to see it here in the U.S., and I’m glad people will be given a chance to do just that.

DC: When did you first connect with Alexander Nevsky? You guys have known each other for a while, and you make a good team.

KL: Thank you! I first met Alexander in 2003 when we were doing press for Terminator. He became a fan and circled back around years later and wanted the opportunity to work with me.

DC: Speaking of how he became a fan, you definitely have a strong fan base. Do you hear from your fans often, and did you notice that community growing after Terminator 3 or even the “Mortal Combat” television show? Do you ever attend sci-fi conventions?

KL: Definitely. I do conventions and have had the pleasure of meeting so many fans from around the world. Before email, I would get lots and lots of fan mail; now of course it’s the digital age so I get a lot of reaction from social media. It’s pretty wonderful. I have to say, if it wasn’t for people enjoying my work, I wouldn’t have work! It really touches me when I meet people and they’ve followed my career and they know me from this or that project no matter how obscure they may be… to know that I somehow impacted somebody’s life in some way, no matter how small or how brief.

DC: It’s great when you can actually feel that from your fans. Seeing the level of fandom that just happened at the Star Wars Celebration and seeing how the actors were touched by everything was pretty moving. Have you ever thought about being in a Star Wars film? I could see you being Captain Phasma or someone like that character.

KL: I would absolutely love that!  It’s a great genre to be a part of because the scope of subject matter in sci-fi is so far-reaching. I think that’s what’s really exciting about it. So yeah, I would love to be a part of another great franchise.

DC: Do you think action fans will get their fill with Black Rose?

KL: It think we have a great little suspense thriller also with some action. Hopefully they’ll enjoy the story and also enjoy the action sequences as well.

Black Rose is now available on VOD and is also new to DVD this week! Written by Brent Huff and George Saunders, the film is directed by Alexander Nevsky, who also stars in the lead role. Co-starring in the film are Kristanna Loken, Robert Davi, and Adrian Paul.

Synopsis:
A Russian Police Major is enlisted by the LAPD to help solve a series of gruesome murders perpetrated against young women by a sadistic sociopathic killer on the mean streets of Hollywood.

Published

on

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!
