Suzi Lorraine – Getting Personal

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 4, 2008 by LiveSciFi

Suzi Lorraine and her familiar, Loki.Hello Sci Fi Fans!  I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and tell you a little about the plans we have in store for www.livescifi.com over the next few months. 

By way of background, I’ve been modelling for about 7 years, and acting for about 6 in the crazy world of cinema. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’ve worked on mainstream films such as “Music and Lyrics” with Hugh Grant (I played the nurse who takes his pulse, revives him, and dances with him in the “PoP! Goes My Heart” music video scene), and on indie films including “Sea of Dust”, “Claang:  The Game”, “Holocaust Holocaust”, “Torment”, “Rise of the Ghosts”, and “Chainsaw Sally”, just to name a few.   I’m also a columnist for Gorezone Magazine in the UK and Horror Mania Magazine in Italy. 

One of the greatest things about my career is that it allows me to travel all over the world, visiting countries and cities I’ve never been to before.  It’s fun to see how other people live, check out their neighborhoods and their architecture, eat the foods they eat, and immerse myself in their culture. It also helps embellish my writing, as I get some nifty “lost in translation” and “cultural differences” stories to talk about.  Certainly, there is “no place like home”, and I do always look forward to returning home from my adventures.  It’s funny because we always tend to think our way is the “right” way of doing things, whether it’s the right way the toilet flushes, or the right side of the street to drive on, or the right process to make a police report when something’s stolen, or the right kind of food to eat.  Really, I think it’s all about what you’re accustomed to and comfortable with.  We’re all creatures of habit to some degree.   

Let’s see, what else should you know?  I have a little black demon cat named Loki, who is the joy of my life.  He has a skinny body, green/brown dragon eyes and extra long ears.  He has lived up to his name in every way possible.  He is as destructive as he is entertaining.  Last week’s hi-jinks included him taking an accidental tumble off the refrigerator, and actually severing some of the connecting wires.  Hissing sounds abounded (not coming from Loki) and then sprays of water filled the air.  We did a “quick fix” to stop the water from pouring forth, and then had the plumber come the next day.   Cats are supposed to be graceful, but this one trips and falls constantly. He gets his “grace” from his mama – in pretty much every film I’ve been in, I have an accidental “woops” moment or unintended fall.   😉   

As you can imagine, in addition to being an actress, model and writer, I am an avid cinema fan.  I’m particularly drawn to the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy realm.  I don’t know what it is about these movies – perhaps the opportunity for escapism, and certainly the chance to live vicariously thru the protagonists and antagonists (without feeling guilty about it, hehe).   I think what’s so special to me about sci-fi in particular is the opportunity to let the viewer really dream and think, and explore the realm of all possibilities within our world.  I’m a huge fan of the “Twilight Zone” series.  I think nearly every episode is a tiny masterpiece, and I love how each one really tells a story, is frequently just so ironic and has a moral and “life lesson” about humanity, if you will, at the end of the day. 

Getting back to the www.livescifi.com site, my goal here is to really interact with the fans and hopefully get some interesting (and hopefully fiery) dialogue going.  We have plans for bi-monthly web chats in the works, as well as a monthly “Ask Suzi” column in which you can pose questions to me.  Nothing’s off limits – feel free to ask away – whether the topic is acting, writing, actors/actresses you’re curious about, behind the scenes stuff you’ve always wanted to know about,  women in film, modelling, relationship advice, offbeat topics, nuclear fission, sea monkeys… hell you get the idea.   

I look forward to hearing from and chatting with you all very soon!  Remember to send me your questions via the “Contact” form on www.livescifi.com or call Live SciFi at Live SciFi phone number..

– Suzi
P.S. The first Q&A session will be posted really soon so get your questions in for the next round!

Suzi VampSuzi Screams!

The newest feature from LiveSciFi.com goes LIVE and interactive February 2008 with sexy Scream Queen Suzi Lorraine.

Suzi Lorraine is the quintessential blonde bombshell. Well, not exactly. She IS blonde. Sure, she’s a model, having graced the print campaigns of Nike, Mercedes, Electric Lingerie, Tosca Olive Oil, and more. Scream Queen? You bet. She’s larger than life in The Night They Returned, She Demons of the Black Sun and so many more you’d need a chainsaw to pare the list down into digestible chunks. But this is a bombshell with a business degree. Besides managing an incredibly hectic career, she’s a prolific writer with columns in Horror Mania, Gorezone, and Insomnia magazines.

Now we’ve got her! And we’re pumped.
Suzi Screams on Livescifi.com will be Suzi’s latest addition to her already chaotic calendar of modeling, acting, writing, traveling, training, and, oh yeah, being the sexy Genre Babe* everyone loves to love. Suzi recline

Suzi will be with us every other week in an interactive event. Besides writing about what’s on her mind, Suzi will be answering your questions about movies, special FX, acting, casting, co-stars, working in “the biz”, and whatever else you can think up. And this won’t be a testosterone-only zone. Suzi is always ready to provide a woman’s unique point of view for questions from female participants.

Live Chats with Suzi will also be scheduled frequently to give registered members unprecedented access to one of the hottest talents in the genre biz.

Send in your questions for Suzi Lorraine NOW. Use the contact form at Livescifi.com or call (941) 234-4773.

Suzi noir*Genre Babe? We’re looking for a title for Suzi that better encompasses her talents in all areas, the way Scream Queen does for her Horror work. Send in your suggestions. We’re setting some prizes aside for the person who comes up with something better than Genre Babe. Or, tell us you like Genre Babe and we’ll stick with it.

Oh My God! My first blog. The first time I actually HAVE to have something to say. I mean I always have something to say but then isn’t that the curse of the internet? Too many people with things to say that, lets face it, are boring as hell and as insightful as staring at the bottom of a bucket. Not even a colourful bucket. Not even a bucket with interesting shaped gunk floating around in the bottom. Just a plain, clean plastic bucket. Although now that I think about what the internet really is, the bucket should probably have some sort of porn drawn on the bottom that you can access for $5.95 a peek. I rave.

But god damn it I was Dargo and I want a place to rant, rave, say stupid things, reveal my bad grammar, appalling typing, and my love for all things sci fi. So here we are!

Sci fi. Hmmm. Sci fi. For every single great scene I see in sci fi television, I see 10 crap ones. This isn’t me being clever and saying I could do it better. God knows I’ve been a part of some great sci fi but I also know I’ve been a part of some real crap!!!! The one thing that this has taught me is that there can be no formula when it comes to creativity. Everyone working on Farscape was talented, insightful, hard working – full of energy, ideas, knowledge and passion. This is the reason we created a great show. Yet we also stuffed up sometimes. In hindsight, or from the outside, some of the decisions we made were obviously dreadful but at least our hearts and talents were in the right place – and we can all agree – we had more wins than losses.

So I thought I would dedicate my first blog here at LiveSciFi to my “Simcoe’s Laws of Great Sci Fi ”

  • Aliens rock, but aliens who are complex characters rock harder. A simple set of pointy ears on a complex character is infinitely more interesting than a 5 hour make-up job on a walking cliché.
  • No matter how far away the galaxy is, it must relate to our present day lives here on earth. We have to care right?
  • The best idea wins, not the most CGI. Repeat a thousand times.
  • Sci fi fans reward bravery and diversity. This is the place to be brave, sexy, controversial and genre breaking. The sci fi shows that create “sci fi” in its infinite varieties of cliché are the reason we have so many crap episodes of sci fi film and television.
  • Wrestling is not sci fi. Wrestling in sci fi = good. Wrestling on Sci Fi = bad.

That’s it for now. I’m sure I’ll add to this list over time. Feel free to create your own lists on the boards. We may even “appropriate” (read – steal) the best ones to add to this list.

Cheers,

Anth
