Her blonde hair and blue eyes are
the first things one might notice about Kirsten Babich, but
seeing her beauty is just scratching the surface with this
young performer! Kirsten has managed to get a lot of
experience under her belt fast. You may have seen her on the
USA network’s Burn Notice or in her most recent role as
Krystal Smith in the new independent horror/comedy
Werewolf: The Devil’s Hound. But before all of that,
she was cutting her teeth in the business working in
commercials, theater, dance and modeling. Now Kirsten is
taking some time to talk with us about some of her latest
projects, including a horror/thriller called Spilt Milk
with Tiffany Shepis and of course the before-mentioned
Werewolf: The Devil’s Hound.
Nic-- So is this your first horror film?
Kirsten-- Yes, it was. I am actually new to film acting as a whole. I come from a background in theater, so the transition to film/TV has been incredibly exciting, and I feel so blessed to
have been able to make the transition. My most recent project was actually another horror film called Spilt Milk (Fantasm Films), so it looks like I might be hooked!
Nic-- So what can you tell us about Spilt
Milk and your role in it?
Kirsten-- Spilt Milk is an amazing film, and I feel honored to have been a part of it. I was able to be
a part of a superb cast of actors including Tiffany
Shepis and Ari Lehman, best known for his role of Jason in
the Friday the 13th films. The script was artfully
written, and the unpredictable storyline will keep you on
the edge of your seat until the final twist.
Kirsten-- Not at all. My film career is really just
starting to take off, and I have no doubt that more diverse
roles will come my way in the future. I feel fortunate to
have had as much experience as I have in such a short time,
even if it has been centered around one particular genre.
which take is going to end up on the cutting room floor,
and which will make it into the movie, so you need to make
sure you give it your all each and every time. By the end of
the night, I had no voice left because I had been doing my
“Scream Queen” scream for hours!
Nic-- What would your dream role be?
Kirsten-- I wouldn't say that I have one specific "dream
role." However, I would really like to head in the direction
of lighthearted romantic comedies, much like the earlier
films of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon; two
actresses who I admire greatly!
