Victoria was kind enough to do an interview with us:
1. If you were walking down the street, and recognized by someone, what have they most likely recognized you for/from?
VDM: Yes. I’ve already been recognized around LA at local bars & parties for ‘Werewolf In A Women’s Prison ‘, as well as a local car wash for a TV show I was on called “Deadly Sins”.
2. Is there a difference between an actor and a movie star? Which one would you prefer to be?
VDM: Possibly. I think there’s a difference between a “character” actor who plays different roles constantly from the actors who just play either an extension of themselves over & over or just the same role in every production. But, I’m fine with being called an actor and/or a movie star!
3.Tell us about your fans. Any crazy fan encounters?
VDM: I adore them. I get monthly fan mail from my loyal fans from everywhere worldwide from Singapore to Canada to the U.K. to Germany to Mexico to France to nationwide all over the U.S. Thankfully nothing super crazy yet!
4. Have you ever made friends (or more) with a fan?
VDM: I hired a fan to be the President of my Fan Club once for a couple years. And, we became good friends during that time.
5. How do you handle some of the saucier scenes you have to do sometimes? Or rather, how do your friends and family?
VDM: I love them. The saucier the better. It’s more controversial. But, I always maintain absolute professionalism when shooting them. It’s at times very uncomfortable & everyone just ends up laughing after each take. My rule is never to do anything on camera that would offend my Mom! She’s a big fan of mine & I’m very grateful for her support & encouragement.
6. Is there anything you won’t do on film?
VDM: Yes. I won’t do hard core porn, lol.
7. Do you think the public sees a different side of you than the one family and friends see at home?
VDM: Absolutely. Who I truly am is nothing like the characters I portray in my work. I’m not really a demon succubus clown from Hell, but I play one on TV!
8. You’ve one movie, one performance, to convince the city of Los Angeles that you’re deserving of a star on the walk of fame. Which performance do you show them?
VDM: Well, you have to contribute almost $40K to get one of those stars, so perhaps I haven’t performed that role yet, but if I’d have to choose one now it would be “Batty Boop” in ‘Killjoy’s Psycho Circus’. The role & film that earned me an iconic doll/action figure. 🙂
9. And finally, plug away! Where can we find you this month?
VDM: ‘The Black Room’ on Amazon Prime & VOD. ‘Dracula In A Women’s Prison’ on Vimeo OnDemand. ‘The Holy Man’ on Amazon. ‘The Blessed Ones’ on Amazon Prime, VOD, & at over 750 Family Video Stores nationwide & in Canada.
