SKSM: Could you start with telling me a little bit about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?

Audrey Looye: I am an actor here in LA!

SKSM: When did you know you wanted to become an actress?

Audrey Looye: In 3rd grade, after being in a school production of The Wizard of Oz.

SKSM: How did you become involved in Restare Dollar Baby film?

Audrey Looye: I answered an open call for the lead and thought I was a good fit for this adaptation of Stephen King’s Rest Stop! I was lucky to get an audition and subsequent call-back from writer/director David Chien.  Meeting our producer AJ Vargas at the same time.  David explained what the “Dollar Baby” film was all about and I was excited to have a chance to collaborate with him and his team!

SKSM: What do you think it is about the story that attracts people so much?

Audrey Looye: Like so much of Stephen King’s stories these adaptations hold just the right amount of creep, horror, and suspicion! Horror guess work 🙂

SKSM: Did you have to audition for the part or was it written directly for you?

Audrey Looye: I had an initial audition and a call-back.

SKSM: You worked with David Chien on this film, how was that?

Audrey Looye: David was great!  He is so gifted and detail oriented.  Plus it was shot on an iphone.  2018 iphone!!

SKSM: Was there any funny or special moment when they made the movie that you would like to tell me about?

Audrey Looye: When you work on micro budgets you need to keep thinking outside of the box and try to make unique interesting choices.  I had the “gallows giggles” a few times staring into the iphone lens.  Micro adjustments were funny and challenging.

SKSM: Do you still have any contact with the crew/cast from that time? If so with who?

Audrey Looye: Mostly by email as we all fell into “Covid” times just after it was made. David and AJ always kept me in the loop.

SKSM: What are you working on nowadays?

Audrey Looye: My latest work is on a Christmas film that is in post production for seasonal release and various commercial projects. But what I really enjoy are the creative art pieces like Restare!

SKSM: Are you a fan of Stephen King’s work?

Audrey Looye: Always!  Just the right amount scare and horror blended nicely together!

SKSM: What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?

Audrey Looye: My age
