Twelv Magazine have released a preview of Mischa’s cover shoot and magazine spread for their May 2012 issue (which I believe is also the first issue ever for the magazine). Check out the interview excerpt, photos and on set video belowTell our readers about your role in the upcoming re-make of the Japanese horror film, Apartment 1303 3D.
There was a lot of creative difference on that. I’m really proud of the way I did my character, like strong, tough. But I’ll be interested to see – to be honest, when it comes to the way they do the 3D and everything else. They fired the director very early on, Daniel Fridell, who was the whole reason that I partook in the whole thing. They fired him, and some other guy who’s never directed before directed [the film]. So it’ll be really interesting to see how it turns out. Honestly, I think it could have been amazing; it could have been really next level. We’ll see how it turns out. But, I like the character I play, Lara Slate. She’s a really, really cool girl. She’s very tough and boyish, and now that I’m older, I have a lot of that dude thing in me, where I was a lot more delicate when I was young. It’s one of the first roles I’ve gotten to play where I was straight tough female, don’t mess with me. That, I was really into. She’s pretty ghetto, that character. I based her very loosely on the girl from Fish Tank, which I think is an incredible film. I’ll be interested to see what they do with it.
So you’re opening up a store in London this spring?
Yes, soon, end of May. It’s just for the handbags. And I’m doing makeup as well, which I’m really proud of. The makeup is really great—that’s to round out the store— because the idea behind the store was sort of ‘70s Biba-esque thing. I wanted it to be almost a vibe, a hangout. People seem to get a very specific vibe from me, just because I know what I like and what I don’t like. That’s the way my taste goes: it’s either yes or no. There’s very rarely a middle-ground with me where I’m like, oh, it’s okay. My dream for it was to be a hang-out, an idea, a feeling. Back in London in the day, you used to walk into Biba and buy anything from incense, because you loved the company and that’s what you could afford, to you know, work your way up this coat that you adored. Eventually, they even sold baked beans in a can. That’s obviously not where we’re headed but— [laughs] designer baked beans. I just wanted it to be something that was indicative of my style and taste and made kids feel good about themselves. It makes you feel good about yourself if you can be a part of the company and part of the vibe.
