TORONTO ACTRESS CHARLOTTE SULLIVAN ON THE SCIFI THRILLER RADIUS

first_img Login/Register With: Known for her role as officer Gail Peck in the police drama “Rookie Blue” and more recently as Anna Turner in “Chicago Fire,” Toronto born actress Charlotte Sullivan has starred in “M.V.P,” “Across the River to Motor City” and in “The Kennedys” as Marilyn Monroe. She has also appeared in the dramas “Fever Pitch” and “Mary Kills People.”In the sci-fi thriller “Radius,” Charlotte is Jane, an amnesiac who joins Liam (Diego Klattenhoff), a man cursed with the stigma of causing the instantaneous death of everyone (except Jane) who comes within 50 feet of him. Together, they struggle to uncover who they are and what happened to them on the night of Liam’s auto accident. In this one-on-one interview, Charlotte reveals some interesting facts about her character and what drew her to this film. Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement “Radius” is not your typical thriller. What attracted you to this unusual film?Charlotte Sullivan: It was such a quick turnaround and it was not what I expected in a thriller. When I read the script and got to the end, I was so surprised to see that the two main characters, Liam and Jane, didn’t end up in a love scene. It was refreshingly different in that sense. There were so many layers to the story and its characters.How did you prepare for the role of Jane, a woman who not only lost her memory but abruptly faces a terrifying reality?CS: It was hard. There were a lot of demanding scenes, scenes that left me emotionally and physically drained.READ MORECHARLOTTE SULLIVAN IS REPRESENTED BY:  CREATIVE DRIVE ARTISTS Twitter Facebook Advertisementlast_img read more
