Reelz Channel Interviews Jennifer Proske

Jennifer Proske is playing the character that spoofs Bella and Kristen Stewart in the movie Vampires Suck. Reelz Channel talked with the new to the industry actress.

A relative newcomer to Hollywood, Jenn Proske has started her career off with a bang, playing “Becca Crane” in the new Twilight Saga parody Vampires Suck. The 23-year-old Boston University graduate beat out hundreds of other actresses vying for the caricature of Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart), who has become a recognizable face among fans of Stephenie Meyer’s worldwide phenomenon. We recently talked with Proske about her love of Twilight, fan reactions to the Vampires Suck parody, and how she managed to channel Stewart’s famous portrayal.

RC: From what we’ve seen in the trailer, you’ve done a great job in Vampires Suck.

Proske: Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!

RC: So tell us, how did you get the part of Becca in Vampires Suck?

Proske: I graduated from Boston University in May of 2009 and moved to LA in late October to pursue acting. I started auditioning full-time and about four months in, I had this crazy week that was jam-packed full of auditions. The very last one was for Vampires Suck. I had been called in for the role of Iris (the Alice Cullen character), and I knew I wasn’t quite right for it, but I gave it my best. Two weeks later, I got called back in, but for the Becca role instead. I had to go in about seven more times after that, and then I booked the movie late on Friday night and flew out to Louisiana the following Tuesday to start shooting. My life literally changed and turned upside down within four days, it’s incredible! I feel so lucky…”
