Sunbury Press: Soon after you completed the filming of The Cursed Man, you had something major happen to you and your career. Can you please tell everyone what that is? Ruth Connell: Um well…I landed the role of “Rowena” in Supernatural which has completely changed my life and for the better! SP: You play the role of Bonnie in The Cursed Man movie. Can you tell people who Bonnie is and what her role is in the movie? RC: I liked the name Bonnie when I got cast as it sounds a bit Scottish already. I thought she was an interesting person to play in that she is a receptionist at the lets say the ‘dodgy’ Hospital and I could see there was scope to color her in creatively. These ‘smaller’ characters can have nuggets of joy within them – there is a freedom to test ideas when you don’t have as much plot responsibility. SP: In the filming of either Supernatural or The Cursed Man, have you had anything on set that really stands out in your mind? RC: I really liked James the Director of The Cursed Man and remember his wife catering for all of us when we were shooting in his house - that was really touching. That and hanging out a bit with Jim Tavare and my new wee pal Ian Watson. The whole cast and crew were really open and friendly which is to be applauded and wished for on every set – Supernatural is the same and it makes all the difference in the world. SP: If you had to place The Cursed Man into a specific genre, what would that be? RC: I think it’s a law unto itself! SP: What is it like to see yourself on television and on the big screen? Do you find yourself critical of your performance? RC: Yup! Sometimes it's useful to see where the work needs to go further. Mostly it's hard not to hate on your own face blown up large and detailed! SP: Do you have any big surprises coming up in the near future that you can mention to your fans? RC: Well I already came back to life on Supernatural – that was a tricky spoiler to keep to myself for so long in front of so many people especially at the conventions with the fans. SP: What do you find appealing about The Cursed Man? If anything, why do you think readers should give it a read before the movie comes out? RC: I really enjoyed reading the book – if you like Supernatural and some of the themes of death and the devil, there is plenty for you in The Cursed Man. SP: If you have any closing comments, the floor is yours. RC: Ah – its been a pleasure to meet and work with the lovely people involved in The Cursed Man.
