NF: Are you working on any films right now
LL: Yes I am currently working on The Curse of All Hallows’ Eve. We start the film in the 1400’s in England where a secret society of evil priests used to grab anything of value that the local villagers owned and as well as the beautiful young girls for sacrifices.

NF: Are you acting in it?
LL: Not really.. I am doing a very small role. You will have to really pay attention to see me. My official title for this film is “Assistant Director”

NF: How do you like being a film director?
LL: I love it. I am working with exceptional actors which makes my job so much easier. I still sometimes get a macho guy who does not want to listen to me because I am a woman.

NF: What do you do in that case?
LL: I simply do not hire them (laughing)

NF: You have a great following on Facebook and Twitter of people wanting to see you on screen. Are you planning on going back to acting?
LL: I do not think I am really good at it! But never know…

NF: So you are an Actress, Film Director and Dancer.. What else can you do?
LL: In the film industry? Pretty much everything. I take the sound, Do special effect makeup, design costumes, edit the film… I had to learn everything about filmmaking. I took my father’s advice “Never depend on anyone”

NF: What kind of films do you enjoy watching?
LL: I love all kind of films.. but I do enjoy old Hollywood classics a lot

NF: What kind of films don’t you like?

NF: In Las Vegas?
LL: Yes close to Las Vegas. I have my eye on a 10 acre piece of land

NF: Who would you love to work with?
LL: Pierce Brosnan, Anthony Hopkins, Robert Downey Jr

NF: Is it true that you kept contact with Robert Downey Jr while he was in jail?
LL: haha. Yes, very true. He just had made a film with a close friend of mine and that is how I got to know him.

NF: What advice would you give any filmmakers
LL: Never give up! Back in the early 80s, Sam Raimi was in Europe trying to sell Evil Dead. He was so broke that he spent the night on our couch. He never gave up and look at where he is now!!!
