SCREAM QUEEN OF THE MONTH-APRIL 2013-RACHEL MINER
There are two trends working here; the first one is intentional; I will be featuring over the next few months the blonde demons of Supernatural as well as their brunette demon ‘twins’. Last month the Written in Blood Scream Queen was none other than the golden-haired Nicki Aycox, the first Meg. This month the spotlight falls on raven-haired Meg, the lovely Rachel Miner. Prior to Supernatural, Rachel has been no stranger to the horror genre; having starred in Penny Dreadful (2006), Cult and Tooth and Nail (2007), The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations (2009), 51 (2011) and In Their Skin (2012). She has also appeared in the Larry Clark (Kids) film Bully (2001) as well as The Black Dahlia (2006), directed by Brian De Palma. Her TV work includes Sons of Anarchy, Criminal Minds, Cold Case and C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation, just to name a few.
It is a pleasure to present to you the Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month for April, 2013, Miss Rachel Miner.
One more thing, I did mention that there were two trends working here. The unintentional trend is that this is the third Scream Queen in a row to be featured wearing a leather jacket. Rachel follows the leather-jacketed Nicki Aycox, who follows the leather-jacketed Elisabeth Shue.
NOT SO MINOR MINER TRIVIA
During the Boston Debut of “Diary of Anne Frank,” her leg was broken in a car accident while she was crossing the street. Understudy temporarily filled in.
Though her credit for Woody Allen’s Alice (1990) reads “Alice at 12 years,” she was only 9 when the movie was filmed.
She has three half-brothers and one half-sister, all of whom have acted either on film and television or on stage.
“Basically, I get paid to be crazy. I get paid to believe I’m someone else, live in a completely false reality, and believe it’s real. And that’s a little scary. And I do it to the best of my ability. But it’s kind of like swimming out to sea. You have to leave enough energy to swim back, and sometimes you get scared you swam too far.”
“Ultimately, the marriage (to Macaulay Culkin) was a choice made with our hearts, not with our heads.”
I’m not cool, quite the opposite. I’m a real geek.
(On the character of “Meg” on Supernatural) “I like the character and her strength, even though she’s not a good guy. Meg is definitely tough, always has that sense of flirting, and is trying to keep some sense of integrity, even in the worst-case scenario. Unlike some characters, who are total victims in certain circumstances, she’s trying to hold onto a position of power when she obviously doesn’t have it.”
