Welcome everyone to a brand new edition of the Writer's Revolution. I am your host, the author of The Phoenix Blade, Andrew Hess. This week we have a special guest with us. She is an actress, a director, a blogger, a photographer and now an author. She is Christine Elise McCarthy
Originally from Boston but has resided in Hollywood for the last 30 years. Christine has been acting professionally for 25 years and am recognized primarily for her roles as U4EA-popping bad girl, Emily Valentine, on Beverly Hills, 90210, as Harper Tracy on ER, and as Kyle, the gal who killed Chucky in Child’s Play 2. She has also appeared in recurring roles on China Beach, In the Heat of the Night, and Tell Me You Love Me. Among my other film roles are Abel Ferrara’s Body Snatchers and two films starring Viggo Mortensen: Vanishing Point and Boiling Point.
As a writer, Christine has written three episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 as well as characters and storylines for the series, a pilot that was optioned by Aaron Spelling, and comical true-life essays that she performed at the Upright Citizens Brigade and Naked Angels theaters in LA. Christine also maintains an irreverent food porn blog called www.DelightfulDeliciousDelovely.com for which she provides recipes, photographs and sometimes share the details of the triumphs and, more frequently, the humiliations of my life. Christine also has a great passion for photography (www.MyPinUpArt.com) and has shown a pin-up and decaying Americana imagery in the United States & Paris.
Christine has been on the selection committee of Michigan’s Waterfront Film Festival since its inception in 1999, is a co-director of the Victoria Texas Independent Film Festival, programs for the Self-Medicated Film Festival and The Lady Filmmakers Film Festival, and consult & judge for many others.
