For anyone who hasn’t seen the episode yet, tell us about Paranormal Survivor.
DREA KING: Paranormal Survivor
is a popular supernatural series that airs on Destination America. I join for Season 3 in the episode “Bringing In Evil” as ‘Nancy’. Over the course of the episode, my character experiences often terrifying and harrowing confrontations with spirits in this dramatic recreation.
How was it to work on this popular re-enactment show?
DK: When I booked the job, I had no idea that there were over 60 million viewers in North America who tune in each week to watch these frightening real-life experiences. I felt honored and privileged to be selected as part of the cast to bring this true story to life on screen. It was fun, fast-paced and the Director, John Griffith, and his team was the ultimate professionals.
Any behind-the-scenes stories worth sharing?
DK: As we filmed out in the countryside on a cold fall night, I think the other cast members and I were expecting something spooky to happen during filming. We were fortunate that there were not any inexplicable visitors upon us that eve.
Were you a fan of the show yourself before landing the role?
DK: Absolutely! I had seen the show before I even knew they were auditioning. I find real-life paranormal stories so fascinating as it’s unbelievable these experiences actually happen to people. I get just as frightened watching episodes as anyone else out there.
And, now just for fun:
Who’s your favorite actor/actress?
DK: Ohhh – there are so many great actors and actresses out there who share their authenticity and vulnerability with us. Off the top of my head, I love watching Edward Norton and Stellen Skarsgård. And as for actresses, I really love watching Sally Field, Susan Sarandon and Alicia Vikander.
What role from the past do you wish you could have played?
DK: I really loved the role of Marge Gunderson played by Frances McDormand in Fargo. She was such a strong, intelligent character with an unwavering wit.
Favorite movie or TV show from your childhood.
DK: Dead Poets Society
with Robin Williams.
Tell us one thing that would surprise our readers to learn about you.
DK: At 17-years old I packed my bags and went to live in France for a year. I lived with a beautiful French family in the countryside of Normandy and went to their French Lycée à Vernon for a year. I am still in touch with some of my classmates and still adore the time I spent there.
