Hey Boys and Girls!
You guys know how much I love these SyFy flicks, so when I was able to get a round of questions into Lorynn York, one of the stars of 2 LAVA 2 LANTULA, the upcoming sequel to Lavalantula , I was pumped.
If you don’t York yet, you soon will she has a ton of current projects in production right now, like Airplane Mode with funnymen Nick Swardson and Kevin Heffernan ; Alibi with Better Call Saul’s Jonathan Banks ; and the Dina Meyer thriller Flight 192. The Ohio beauty is already a major player on Lifetime, starring in several movies for the network. She even had a small part in Iron Man 3.
Thanks, for doing this. I know your currently on set for a new project with Jonathan Banks. Are you Breaking Bad / Better Call Saul fan?
Personally if I’d probably geek out a bit.
I watched every single episode of breaking bad. I was beyond excited.
Working with a guy like that has to be huge for a young actor? Any tips?
It was amazing, he is such a nice guy. My biggest piece of advice when working with seasoned actors is to be yourself and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Everyone started somewhere. He’s got some great stories.
Speaking of another big name…you have 2 LAVA 2 LANTULA with the Paul Rudd of the 80’s Steve Guttenberg coming out soon, who do you play?
Yes! It comes out on August 6th on the syfy channel. I play Daniella in the movie.
I love Guttenberg, and I’m old enough to remember when he was huge. What’s he like on set?
He was hilarious. From the first second I met him, to the last day on set, I was laughing.
2 LAVA 2 LANTULA , is like Sharknado regarding guest stars –who makes an appearance that might surprise us?
I’m not sure I can tell you yet, but you won’t be disappointed!
You’ve done a number of Lifetime films–which have gotten much better–but sometimes, ya know the plots are a melodramatic, is it fun playing these over the top type of characters?
I love TV movies! It’s a great environment for actors. You have to work very fast, and be emotionally available on your first take. It’s a great way to work on your craft! And YES, it’s very fun. Drama is my favorite, but I have a blast on every single movie I work on.
Few last questions…how many people an say 2 Lava 2 LANTULA correctly? I can’t
I have a few videos posted on my socials! Check them out. There are a lot of ways you can say 2lava2Lantula, but you have to say it with passion.
Lastly, and best of luck with everything—where can fans keep up with you? And do you have anything coming up they should look out for?
Thank you so much for having me! I have a movie coming out with Logan Paul called Airplane Mode, another lifetime movie called Flight 192, and Alibi with Jonathan Banks. All within the next 6 months! Can’t wait to share!
