Exclusive: The Stranger Inside Wraps; An Update from Star Sarah Butler
We caught up last Friday the 13th with actress Sarah Butler (star of last year’s Steven R. Monroe-directed feature I Spit on Your Grave) to chat with her regarding psychological thriller The Stranger Inside, which just previously had been filming in Copenhagen, Denmark, under the eye of writer/director Adam Neutzsky-Wulff. Read on for word on the production as well as to see a new batch of production stills.
“I'm still here to do a press conference with the Danish media,” stated Butler from Copenhagen. She appears in the role of ‘Sarah’ opposite co-stars Estella Warren (2001’s Planet of the Apes) and William Baldwin (Backdraft). “Billy and Estella, along with Scandinavian actor Kim Bodnia, had some more scenes that they shot here, too, which were set in New York. We had three hundred extras for a scene at the Royal Theater downtown last Monday, and for the rest of the week there were some scenes shot in a shut-down old sheetrock factory warehouse that will most likely please the horror-loving crowd.”
Now wrapped, Butler stated of her experience on The Stranger Inside (which also shot on location in Mallorca, Spain), “I have had such an amazing time on this film. Two of my most passionate interests are acting and traveling, and the fact that I got to combine these two made the whole experience a dream come true.”
“Also, working with (production company) Drama Deluxe has been a real eye opener in a couple of respects,” Butler offered. “First, the company is the first in Denmark to independently finance and produce a major feature film. That alone is impressive, and I have confidence that what our director delivers will more than stand its ground. I have been on set most days, even when I'm not shooting, and I love to watch each shot get set up. The director of photography Michael Sauer Christensen and the whole crew have worked to make this an absolutely beautiful movie.”
“It was also a pleasure working with Billy Baldwin,” she continued. “I always learn on a set, mostly from the other actors, and Billy was an excellent example. When I first got here, I watched my steps around him because I thought of him as a ‘movie star’, so unlike little old me. But now at the end of the shoot, I still consider him a star but also a friend. Besides his talent and charm, I find it extremely inspirational that he’s a devoted family man. From the way he talks so lovingly about his wife and kids, I see him as a guy who has figured out how to have a successful career and a strong family. I want that someday.”
As The Stranger Inside moves into post-production, we’ll keep you updated. In the interim see our previous article here for more on the film, and check out the new photos below.
