It doesn't matter in what medium you've seen her in, it's a guarantee you remember her. The full lips, the raven hair, the incredible body--wow! I interviewed her a few years ago to get her thoughts on all things metal and horror and found her to be an intelligent, thoughtful, insightful, and talented person. The fantastic Ms. St. Claire recently added some new genre credits to her resume, so the time was right to chat with her again (right, like I needed a reason to chat with one of the hottest women on the planet...) read on and enjoy!

Blue Suede is really going to be an amazing epic mob thriller. I play the character Angie Pizzano. I'm really excited to work on that. He has a great cast & script. The same director, JR Hepburn has some super great projects slated for this year including a horror film I really can't talk about.
