Shaina Moskowitz: Can you talk about getting into character and any challenges you faced playing this role in “Queen of Carthage”?
Shiloh Fernandez: I was shooting “Evil Dead” in New Zealand and it was exactly up my alley as far as films that I act in and I think that it’s inspired by being in a strange place and doing a job that wasn’t exactly fulfilling all my needs as an actor. The film that we wrote was actually a little bit different than what came out. I think that having to juggle both things was a part of the reason why that character became so dark, which was the place I was at in my life. Like a modern day social networking and how people believe anything that you say on the internet even if it’s a lie. In a grander aspect we chose to make a character that lies about himself and it’s sort of accepted when someone is rejected from that. I think that there was really no preparation because we wrote the script and two weeks later we started shooting, so there wasn’t a lot of time to think about it. But the character of Graham is played by Graham Candy and I think a lot of it was taken from real life things about him.

SM: Can you talk about what it was like to write and produce “Queen of Carthage”?
SF: I wrote it with my hometown friend who directed it, Mardana. He and I have written stuff together and traveled all over the world. It was sort of just a creative exploration for us. Obviously I didn’t ever go to acting school or theater so I earned how to act through making movies and TV and so with that, I gained a lot of knowledge about different aspects of filmmaking. And so that was one of the greatest experiences and challenges to put all I thought I knew into the work, which proves to be way more difficult than you can ever imagine. But I think being a part of a lead role in the film where sometimes as an actor you’re sort of a cog in the machine, was something that I was drawn to.

SM: Without giving too much away, can you talk about the ending of “Queen of Carthage”?
SF: I think it was hard because I and my friend made it together. There were a lot of compromises on both of our parts. During the edit, we had a lot of challenges going back and forth about how things should play out. Ultimately, he is the director and this was his visual construction of our idea and the end is really in his hands and in the hands of the viewer. I think that that’s something I used to really love about film was when movies didn’t lay it all out for you but gave you some sort of question mark at the end to think about and go home or walk away from and had you sketched about it. I think that that’s more of it. How do we feed these people? What’s real and what’s not real? I think that’s why we chose the ending that we did.

SM: Can you talk about what it was like working with Keisha in “Queen of Carthage”?
SF: Keisha is great. I met Keisha when I was doing an audition for “Red Riding Hood,” in Catherine Hardwicke’s garage in Venice Beach. Obviously she’s an amazing actress and she’s doing fantastic right now. I met her and I really liked her as a person and as an actress. I asked Catherine Hardwicke for Keisha’s information, she passed along and luckily jumped on board. She is just an interesting person. I’m so proud of her for all of the work she is doing right now.

SM: Can you talk about some of your favorite scenes from “Queen of Carthage”?
SF: It was such a whirlwind, it was really hard because I was working on “Evil Dead” during the day and then shooting our film at night so it all kind of bleeds together. But, the scene on the beach when we go to the natural hot spring, that was a really great day for us. We didn’t have a lot of time to travel and shoot all throughout New Zealand but that was the day we took a few hours to drive, we’re all together and we sort of had a really great bonding experience that day and the drive home was really fun.
