Photos of a glowing Mischa at Kat Kramer’s Films That Change the World Screening Series have been added. Mischa was there alongside Martin Sheen for their movie Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain which is currently streaming on Hulu Plus and Netflix.
Photos of Mischa at the Variety and Formula E Hollywood Gala at the Chateau Marmot in LA have been added.
Photos of Mischa at the LA Lakers game at Staples Center have been added. Gotta love her NY cap!
Here is the trailer for Mischa’s upcoming horror flick The Hoarder. It recently had its premiere at Frightfest Glasgow. The film also stars Robert Knepper and Emily Atack.
The trailer is a bit gory in parts and kind of spoilerish, so if you want to be surprised all the way, I suggest not watching.
For some reason, the trailer has a privacy setting on it. So you can’t watch it directly on this site, you’ll need to click the link below and watch it straight through Vimeo. Last time the trailer was posted like this, it was deleted, so if it’s gone by the time you guys read this, sorry in advance.
Here is Mischa’s stunning shoot for Professional Hairdresser magazine. One of her best, imo! The shoot features Mischa sporting the Gold Class Hair extensions via Inanch London salon.
Continuing our coverage of Mischa’s latest movie Deserted (so current, it just wrapped production a few weeks ago), director Ashley Avis has very kindly taken time out of her week to answer a few questions for us.
What we have with this project is something a little different to normal in the sense that Ashley was not only the director, but also the writer, location scout and I’m sure a million other things. Additionally, most of the crew were friends or relatives, so even in just my brief contact with Ashley, you can tell that a lot of heart and soul was put into the production of this film. That alone makes it one to watch.
As I mentioned, the movie has just wrapped production so we’re still a little while away from getting release info, but I hope the following Q&A gives you a glimpse into the making of the movie. I’m sure that after reading it through, you’ll be looking forward to seeing the finished film just as much as me.
It’s definitely a passion project – absolutely. I’ve written dozens of drafts of this script over the past three, three and a half years. As scripts do, Deserted has morphed and changed, ebbed and flowed.
It took about that amount of time (approximately three years) for both financing, and the right team to click into place as well.
What was your inspiration behind the screenplay?
Death Valley, first and foremost. A cinematographer I used to work with years ago showed me photos of Death Valley – the outstandingly, varying topography. Sand dunes, salt flats, mountains, pinnacles – I desperately wanted to shoot something, anything in a place like that.
Most of the screenplays I write start with a location, first. A place – a theme – and then the characters crawl out of the woodwork. I love finding them, weaving them. Watching them talk. The only thing in Deserted that’s particularly close to home for me is the relationship between Jae and Robin – I’m very close to my younger brother.
Thank you, that’s very kind. Jae is an incredibly complex character, and we needed an actress that could really dig deep into her psychologically. When we met with Mischa at our home in Venice – she came in with this beautiful openness and great story thoughts and questions about the script. We were all incredibly impressed.
As soon as Mischa was cast, she immediately flew into her process of getting into and understanding her character. She did a huge amount of research about women who had been incarcerated, the psychology of a character like Jae. Mischa was also great to work with on set – she worked incredibly hard, we were constantly talking about finding the truth in the dialogue and the character dynamics. Her performance truly matches how much she gave herself to the role. She was outstanding.
