Shannon Solo: I’m an actor, an entertainer really. I host a radio show, do TV weather, write and perform music also.
SKSM: How did you become involved in Lovecraft’s Pillow?
Shannon Solo: I worked with Mark (Steensland) on ‘Sucker‘ and really enjoyed the experience so I happily agreed to do ‘Pillow’.
SKSM: Did you have to audition for the part or was it written directly for you?
Shannon Solo: The story was a suggestion by Stephen King and I was honored Mark thought of me for the part.
SKSM: You worked with Mark Steensland on this film, how was that?
Shannon Solo: As I mentioned, he’s awesome to work with, professional and precise.
SKSM: Was there any funny or special moment when they made the movie that you would like to tell me about?
Shannon Solo: Mark on the roof hanging a pawn shop sign he made himself and working the dolly he also made that came together as a great shot!
SKSM: Do you still have any contact with the crew/cast from that time? If so with who?
Shannon Solo: In this area at some point you always run into people you’ve worked with before yes.
SKSM: What did you do after Lovecraft’s Pillow?
Shannon Solo: I have a couple projects lined up so far for this year.
SKSM: Do you think Stephen Kings idea was worked out as he intended?
Shannon Solo: I’m not going to pretend to go inside the mind of Mr. King haha.
It’s always difficult to transfer Stephen’s work to film, but I will say Mark did a wonderful job and I’m sure Stephen King would approve.

Shannon Solo: Yes I’m a fan.
