SKSM: Could you start with telling me a bit about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?
Rebecca Wilde: I am Rebecca Wilde and I co-host a morning show on Cleveland’s Q104. I am a single female, who owns a house in the Heights, with my two cats, Holyfield and Van Gogh… they are both missing part of their ears.
SKSM: How did you become involved in All That You Love Will Be Carried Away?
Rebecca Wilde: Local writer/director James Renner call me up and asked if I would be interested in a bit part in the flick.
SKSM: Did you have to audition for the part or was it written directly for you?
Rebecca Wilde: I don’t think it was written for me, but I didn’t have to audition.
SKSM: You worked with James Renner on this film, how was that?
Rebecca Wilde: James is awesome! He makes people completely at ease. I think that shows a great director because he’s easy to get direction from.
SKSM: Was there any funny or special moment when they made the movie that you would like to tell me about?
Rebecca Wilde: It wasn’t really funny, but I felt really cool having a cigarette with Joe Bob Briggs, the star of the movie. I used to watch him on TNT all the time……..btw, I quit smoking almost 2 years ago.
SKSM: Do you still have any contact with the crew/cast from that time? If so with who?
Rebecca Wilde: Just James……..I’m sure Joe Bob couldn’t pick me out of a line-up.
SKSM: What did you do after All That You Love Will Be Carried Away?
Rebecca Wilde: Went back to the simple life of anonymity…..at least visually. Still on the air.
SKSM: There are four different adaptations of this story. What do you think it is in the story that attracts people so much?
Rebecca Wilde: Stephen King just has a way of pulling people into his stories. Maybe it’s because the guy is totally relatable……..he’s just a regular guy looking for who knows what and I think a lot of people are always looking for something or someone to fulfill them.
SKSM: Are you (or were you) a fan of Stephen King’s work?
Rebecca Wilde: LOVE him!! Used to read the scary books to my brother, even as we got older and we would scare the crap out of each other.
SKSM: Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Is there anything else you want to say to the fans that read this interview?
Rebecca Wilde: Sure… I’m available for work! Haha…
