The 'X-Files' star talks about her role in violent revenge thriller 'Straightheads'.
By Chris Tilly

'Straightheads' seems to be quite unlike anything you've tackled before, so what attracted you to the project?

I think what interested me at first is the characters. There's something about the script that's quite different and mysterious and disturbing, but also the character, Alice, is very different to the parts I've played before.

Can you see yourself continuing to do low-budget British film like this?

Yes, I think I will, but all of a sudden I find myself on yet another film where we constantly have to cut scenes and hurry up and shoot something before the light goes and knowing if it does go the scene gets thrown rather than picked up later because we don't have the budget. So there is part of me that says never again, but then again it's the kind of low-budget British film that I love watching, so I don't think I'll stop.
