While chatting with Death Valley's Caity Lotz last week about season 2 of the MTV horror comedy (on which she plays Officer Kirsten Landry), I asked the actress/martial artist/dancer about another supernatural thriller she's starring in -- The Pact. The feature film debut of director Nicholas McCarthy, The Pact co-stars Casper Van Dien and Agnes Bruckner, and premieres in January at the Sundance Film Festival. Find out what Lotz had to say about her role after the jump.
"I play this character, her name is Annie," says Caity Lotz about The Pact. "And after her mother's death she has to go back home to deal with everything. She had a tough upbringing. Her mom was crazy and abused her and her sister. She comes back into town, and she's trying to deal with her whole past, and then her sister goes missing, and her cousin goes missing. She basically has to try and find out what happens to them. Then there's this unsettling presence in the house that she has to deal with. It's a cool ghost story. It's a mind trip ghost story. It's fun."
"It was cool to do the film, because the role is completely opposite from my role as Kirsten in Death Valley. Because the character of Annie, her whole thing is that she's tough. She's really tough and she's a hard ass. So she's a little bit of a bitch, and she doesn't take shit from anyone. So she's the opposite of the bubbly Kirsten character."
Currently, Lotz is working on Planet B-Boy from Sony Screen Gems. "Josh Holloway is in it," she says. "Chris Brown is in it. It's gonna be a rad 3D breakdancing movie. We're filming right now, we're right in the middle of shooting. We were shooting over in France for a couple of weeks, and now we're finishing up here in LA. That's gonna be fun. It's all about breakdancing and b-boying. It's pretty cool. And I get to dance."
