SKSM: Could you start with telling me a little bit about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?
Landon Sweeney: I’m Landon, 38 named after the actor Michael Landon, my day today job is that of a town ranger assisting the police. I also act as much as possible in the free time I have, along with the film work I appear in many plays and musicals in the local area.
SKSM: When did you know you wanted to become an actor?
Landon Sweeney: I took part in a school musical many years ago (half a sixpence) and had the bug ever since, acting is so much fun and each new part is something different.
SKSM: How did you become involved in Morning Deliveries Dollar Baby film?
Landon Sweeney: I saw a message online asking for actors, as a big Stephen King fan I knew I had to be in it so offered my services, had no idea I’d end up on the poster and the lead part that was a happy bonus.
SKSM: What do you think it is about the story that attracts people so much?
Landon Sweeney: Everyone of a certain age remembers the local milkman, we all had one back in the day. To think that this innocent person maybe killing locals off has a very dark twist and is a fabulous story.
SKSM: Did you have to audition for the part or was it written directly for you?
Landon Sweeney: I sent a video in of me saying some of the words and was offered the part.
SKSM: You worked with Will Patrick Roberts on this film, how was that?
Landon Sweeney: He is very keen, very open to listening to ideas and has his own focus and vision of how he wants the film to be. And a very kind and friendly person to boot.
SKSM: Was there any funny or special moment when they made the movie that you would like to tell me about?
