SCREAM QUEEN OF THE MONTH-AUGUST 2013-TERI MCMINN
I’m going to do things a little bit differently with the August Scream Queen of the Month, Teri McMinn. I’m not going to tell you that she was born in Houston, Texas; or that she attended the University of Texas and St. Edwards University. Nor will I tell you that she’s the girl in this iconic photo:
or this one:
I’m not even going to tell you any of that interesting trivia that I include here so often; like she was working as a local actress in Texas when she was offered the part of Pam in the now iconic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre; or that she’s an accomplished stage actress who has worked with the likes of Edward Hermann (Gilmore Girls) and Peter Breck (The Big Valley). Nope, I’m not doing any of that stuff. 😉
What I am going to do is include some quotes from the Scream Queen herself. I asked Teri if she would be kind enough to impart a few words of wisdom for her entry and she graciously complied. The quotes are coming up, but for now let us welcome the lovely and talented Miss Teri McMinn as Written in Bloods Scream Queen of the Month for August, 2013.
Quotes from Teri McMinn aka Pam, the O’riginal Chainsaw Gal:
In 2008, I was at a turning point in my life and ripe for a change. What it would be, I had no idea, but I was wide open. Truth be told, I had never been a fan of my performance in TCM. I had always looked at what I could have done better. I cringed when I heard myself speaking. This is not a-typical of an actor, in fact, I think its more common than not. Anyway, so I came “out,” and it’s mostly all been a blast and a half!
Believe it or not, I’ve planted, trimmed, re-planted, watered, fed, killed, thinned-out, nurtured, babied, neglected, been tricked by tricksters, designed, created, shared happiness, adored, adorable, un-adorable, discovered, threatened, succeeded, shared amazing friendships, lost, won, and failed.
I confess… I got lucky sometimes…
I’ve experienced great joy, fear, happiness, confusion, passion, bliss, love, ecstasy, satisfaction, often, little, too much, and not enough.
