The Marin Independent Journal
The woman who’s assuming the Ash-like role in the remake of The Evil Dead, Jane Levy, recently sat down to talk about her character and more. Curious? Read on for what she had to say!
“For a while, whenever I was asked what my dream role would be, my answer was always to play a killer or a psychopath,” Levy tells The Marin Independent Journal. “I get to do that in this movie, although I’ll be possessed while I destroy my victims. So basically, it’s a perfect job…”
She continues, “I really wanted to work on Evil Dead because of how different it is from ‘Suburgatory’. I guess that’s my main goal in this industry, to work on different stuff and to play a wide range of characters. That process of creating a new person is so fun for me. I love the initial makeup/hair tests before the start of a new job; I’m always campaigning for a new hair color or length, anything to look as different as possible.”
“This role also intrigued me because of how much I will learn, mostly technical stuff like special effects. That’s fascinating to me. I had to get my body ‘casted’ for this role so they can make me prosthetics. That process entailed getting your whole body covered in green goo, like the stuff they put in your mouth for a tooth casting, and then being papier-mâchéd. It was the coolest thing ever.”
The Evil Dead remake is produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell. Fede Alvarez is in the director’s chair, and the flick stars Jane Levy, Lou Taylor Pucci, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore. Look for it to be released through Sony.
