If the big earthquake happened today -- how would you survive? Are you the type of person that could land on your feet or would you go into shock at the sight of the city in shambles?
Evidently, rising actor link
is ready to ride it out and rescue the girl he loves.
Of course, this is all just part of the new disaster film link
that recently released on VOD from The Asylum.
I recently caught up with Jason Woods to find out about his daring new role and more.
Tell us about your role in "San Andreas Quake."
JW: My character, Nick, a struggling college student, becomes an unconventional action hero when he is thrown into the chaos of a massive earthquake.
How was it to work on a disaster film – any nightmares?
JW: Like many disaster films there was a lot of action. Since I performed my own stunts in some precarious situations, there were a few scares... and scars. And yet, this experience was more of a dream than a nightmare for me.
What would you consider your characters ‘best’ quality? And their ‘worst’?
JW: Nick's best quality is definitely his loyalty. His worst quality is being a smart-ass.
Any interesting stories from the set you can share with us?
JW: While climbing through one of the tunnels they poured peanut dust all over us for effect. I got peanut dust up my nose and everywhere else you can imagine. Fortunately, I'm not allergic to peanuts.
What’s the biggest lesson you learned from working on this project?
JW: After doing my own stunts, I learned how much physical and mental strength it takes to be a stunt actor. I had to have no fear in what I was doing, otherwise I would risk hurting myself.
And, now just for fun:
What’s your favorite food?
JW: Sushi, hands down.
Cats or dogs?
JW: Personally, I am a dog person. I have three in my house now, but I am a lover of all animals. One day I'd like to have a cat(s) too.
Favorite movie from your childhood.
JW: "Space Jam" baby! Let's go Toon Squad!
Tell us one thing that would surprise our readers to learn about you.
JW: I'm a geek. I love watching cartoons/anime and playing video games for hours.
How can fans keep up with you?
JW: Follow me on Twitter: link
