UKHS – The last time I saw you was on the set of ‘The Hooligan Factory’, so it’s good to catch up with you again and talk about your career. First of all, can you please introduce yourself to fans of UKHS who don’t already know you and tell us how you got started in acting and what was the first Film/Tv show that you worked on?
RB – Hi Folks My Name is Barrow, Rudy Barrow, I’m a British Actor, and I’ve been in many films over the years. As far back as I can remember I’ve always wanted to be an actor, so when the chance came up I took drama lessons at school, I was the first one to put my name on the list, My filming career all kicked off when I replied to an ad in my local paper, for extras wanted! I put my name down with the casting agent and bingo my first ever role was, in a film called Split Second, in which I played the part of a police officer. Some of the films and TV shows I’ve been in are. The Bill, Vicar of Dibley, A Killer Conversation, The Lee Mack all star cast, The Hooligan Factory, Evil Up Close, Exorcist Chronicles, Dead Walkers: Rise of The Fourth Reich, Blaze of Glory, The Wrong Floor, Torture and Apostle’s Manoeuvre.
UKHS – You recently played an Exorcist in Jason Wright’s ‘Blaze of Gory’ segment “Precious”. How did you get the part and what was it like working with Emily Booth?
RB – Well I was in a film called A Killer Conversation, and the director, David VG Davies, recommended me to his director friend Jason Wright, as being a good choice for an Exorcist. I do believe that it’s all about being in the right place at the right time, also word of mouth Is still one of the best ways of making contacts/connections. Working with the one and only Emily Booth, was a real pleasure, we worked well together she’s a real pro, and easy on the eye too!
RB – Practie, Practie, Practie, at least 2 hours a night for a week I learned my lines, and then I learned to say them in different ways, I set up a video camera in my living room to record my performances, and when I was happy, I used that one on the day.
UKHS – Do you believe in the supernatural?
RB – I believe that the is a force out there, which..yes could be called supernatural, put it this way, there are a lot of unexplained things that happen, which nobody, can explain. We are not alone!
UKHS – Which film have you enjoyed working on the most and what made it so special?
RB – Well it would be a bit unfair to pin point any one film, but in my top 3 in no particular order I would have to be.. A Killer Conversation, it was so much fun to make, never laughed so much in my life, next up is The Wrong Floor, action and horror, I got to play the role of a scientist, loved it. Last but not least.. Apostle’s Manoeuvre, in which I play a very old man, a challenge in it’s self.
RB – I would say that my acting style changes with each movie, but on the whole I try to be as natural as possible, I find it looks better on screen, and makes the whole film more enjoyable.
UKHS – What is your favorite horror movie?
RB – My all time Horror/Scifi movie has to be Event Horizon… wicked film, I dare you to watch it at night… alone….an oldie but still worth watching.
UKHS – Finally, are you currently working on any other projects which you can tell UKHS about and how do you choose which projects to work on?
