David Banks - "An amazing actor and an even better human being" - An Interview with Adnan Khalid

I have yet to see another film actor with such respect and regard for fans and critics. David Banks won me over with his acting in CUT! and made me an ardent admirer during his correspondence with me. He reinstated my belief in my work as a film reviewer and interviewer. I have never had more fun working on an interview.



1. Hello, you were outstanding in CUT, can you guide us through your early life and eventual breakthrough in Hollywood.

Thanks so much for the kind words. I have always had a certain fascination with the business and everything around it. I grew up living in a house surrounded with right brainers ha ha.



My parents were both heavily involved with music and entertainment. As a young child I can remember my mom bouncing me on her knee to Fleetwood Mac albums.

2. In your journey so far what has been the most difficult time for you regarding your career in Hollywood? What, in your opinion, is/will be your biggest break in Hollywood?


I think the most difficult thing for any of us is the waiting game. Waiting for the next job, because the last one you shot didn't go as great as you thought, or your performance didn't  go exactly how you had hoped.

My biggest break will most likely be the day I no longer question my performance. Will that ever happen? I dont know (:

3. Does a casting couch exist in Hollywood?

Ahhhhh I have heard of such a thing. I think we should all be careful where we lay down and with whom. Whether its a casting couch or a even something that appears like a comfortable cozy couch from the outside.

4. Which up coming projects excite you, please give us an elaborate detail of each one you want to discuss?

The projects that excite me are the ones where I can really get out of my comfort zone, and challenge myself. CUT! was a big one for me and being able to walk that deep dark line was very rewarding in the end. 
In the future I would ultimately love to go even further and shake things up even more.




For me if anyone can watch what I have done and say "wow that guy must really have something wrong with him" I think I have done my job.

5. On what do you spend the most: clothes, accessories, perfumes, cars or anything else?

I would say I spend the most on Therapy! Asking the question......Did I make the right career choice??

I'm kidding. It would definitely be food. I am a food fanatic and love trying new restaurants.

6. Where do you think you will be after 25 years?

I will definitely be doing the same thing I am doing now. I don't have a back up plan and believe if you are truly passionate about what you do you shouldn't have one.

7. Describe yourself in three words?
Driven, Difficult, Obsessed....Can I have 4? Can I say DIFFICULT again??? (:


8. Who, in your opinion, are the most overrated actor and actress in the industry?

Well if anyone is overrated I think they are doing something right. If we are hearing about them more than we would like they are doing exactly what they should be doing. I heard an amazing quote a while ago. the only bad press and exposure is an obituary.

9. What is your dream role/project?

To work side by side with Ray Liota - Maybe share a few tears and a beer.

10. What do you enjoy more, Stand up or acting?

I enjoy acting much more. Stand up is absolutely terrifying!

11. Do you believe in flaunting it if you have it?

I think we should do our best work and if its good enough other people will flaunt it for you.

13. What's the best compliment you have ever received?

Well I work and think a bit different than most people. So the best compliment I can hear is when someone tells me I should try something else career wise. I have always been the type of guy who works best when someone tells me I cant do something. I will spend my entire life trying to prove them wrong.


14. What's the meanest thing or harshest criticism you have ever heard about yourself?

Well they say, if an actor ever wants to ruin his or her day Google yourself. There are some pretty harsh things to be said about anyone who has taken big chances with a character or role. You can never please everyone.

I will never forget doing one of my first commercials and I had to take a lollipop away from a baby who starts crying, and the day it aired there were dozens of angry moms posting comments about how cruel I was and how mean that was for the baby who will be effected by this for years to come. HA HA You never know what will be said.




15. Who would you want to kiss on screen if you could choose anyone?

Penelope Cruz - Because I'm sure if I did it wrong she would slap me with everything she had!

16. Your message to the world and your fans?

KEEP DOING WHAT YOU LOVE AND NEVER STOP! THANK GOD EACH AND EVERY DAY YOU ARE HERE TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE MOST!

17. A few words about thefilmguide.net

Allowing anyone in the business to share their experiences and perhaps touch someone anywhere in the world is an absolutely amazing thing. THE FILM GUIDE is an incredible platform for that!




I just finished reading your interview with Natalie Burn and her talking about how to control the falls after the win was brilliant. There is so much content out there, but when you read something that touches you there is nothing better. Our moods can change as fast as the weather out here in California. Why not read something that will motivate you and uplift you?



Thanks so much for your time



















David Banks

Julia (2014) Movie Review

Julia (2014) on IMDb

Julia’s journey of seeking revenge for her brutal rape.
Director: Matthew A. Brown
Running time: 95 minutes
Screenplay: Matthew A. Brown
Music composed by: Frank Hall
Cast: Ashley C. Williams, TahynaTozzi, Jack Noseworthy, Joel de la Fuente, Cary Woodworth


Julia revolves around a girl who is brutally raped and then seeks revenge by practicing an unacceptable form of therapy to restore herself. Ashley C. Williams plays Julia beautifully. She is a nurse. She is raped by her date and his friends after being drugged. Dumped somewhere by the water for the tides to take her, she still manages to get back to her home. The rape results in depression and drinking on a daily basis at a local bar. 

At the bar, Julia overhears a discussion about some new empowered therapy for rape victims. She then falls prey to this unacceptable therapy conducted by Dr. Sgundud, played by Jack Noseworthy. The therapy is based on some terms and conditions. One of the main terms that Dr, Sgundud put forth her is that she is not allowed to take revenge from the people who raped her. She seeks her revenge against men by acts of violence upon random victims.

Julia is a bold and powerful movie. Ashley C.William’s performance is the film’s strongest point. Phenomenal throughout the movie, Ashley did justice to her part. Overall the movie is powerful and raises questions about the rape culture. Julia is a very loud movie with very little dialogues. The movie is visually arresting, unique and worth a watch.

Rating: 6/10

Ashley C. Williams (Julia 2014) Exclusive Interview and Pictures

Her work in Julia was so powerful that I had to get her to answer a few questions. This girl from the Human Centipede is definitely one to watch out for. I hope she get recognized as the amazing actor that she is. 




1. Hello Ashley, you were outstanding and scorching in Julia, can you guide us through your early life and eventual breakthrough in Hollywood.

" I was just very active and always had to find something to release my energy and found it in acting. 





Thank you very much! I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia and began acting when I was about 10 years old. I had a lot of wild, crazy creative energy at home and my mother saw this and decided to take me to some local theater auditions. I ended up loving it and got cast in almost everything I auditioned for. I did a lot of acting, singing and dancing growing up as well as hiking and mountaineering expeditions with Outward Bound. I was just very active and always had to find something to release my energy and found it in acting. Eventually my dream as a young girl was to be on Broadway. When I outgrew my home town, I moved to NYC to go to acting school (The American Academy of Dramatic Arts) Through that process I learned how much more I enjoyed the act of filmmaking and being a film actor. My dream of Broadway soon fell away. After graduating school I started auditioning and soon landed The Human Centipede. But at the time I didn't have an agent or any film experience. I booked it all on my own and fell into something that I had no idea would change my life. The film got a lot of recognition and I gained a certain kind of celebrity in the horror world, which did open a lot of doors for me. But it wasn't until I did JULIA last year, even though classified as a horror/thriller, the character I play really shows the depth of me as an actress. When the film comes out in the states this year I'm excited to see what kind of breakthrough it will give me.

2. You roles in the human centipede and Julia were both very challenging, especially when one remembers previous actors like Heath Ledger (Joker) and Camille Keaton (I spit on your grave) struggling to cope with the trauma of playing the roles. Camille reportedly said she felt like being actually raped. How did you cope with the brutality and intensity of the roles you got and the movies on the whole? 


When you let yourself really go all the way with a character you really do take a part of them with you, it's inevitable. I thrive on challenge. I actually love putting myself into dangerous, thrilling situations. Whether it be climbing steep mountains in Scotland, sea kayaking in the Bahamas surrounded by sharks, being a part of unique controversial social and political awareness plays and movies, I just throw myself in and commit fully, in a way to know and understand what that feels like but also to get to know myself through those situations and what I'm fully capable of. The role in THC was pretty challenging and physically and emotionally draining. I had to go to some very dark places within myself to produce what I did. But I think what I took away from that the most was the intimacy of filmmaking and what it means to make it all small and to convey everything without saying a word, which ultimately helped a whole lot with my character in JULIA actually. Julia doesn't speak very much in the film, and when she did it almost felt wrong. The film is actually not about the rape. It's about a girl on a dark journey of awakening. I gained a certain internal power from doing this role. There was actually a lot of her in me already, but I learned a lot from her journey and what it means to really awaken into your highest most self. For me, acting is a practice of being in that zone of ultimate presence in every moment. The director took me to a very deep place where I was able to pull out a piece of myself that I never knew existed. I learned a lot about myself through this role which is something I hope to have in every role I dive into. To be able to pull yourself out of a victim mindset and move forward to gain control back into your life like Julia, is what I took away with me. I remind myself again and again of this healthy internal power that I always have within me but sometimes fail to bring into my everyday way of Being. It was a very intense shoot that I hope to experience again and again. 

3. In your journey so far what has been the most difficult time for you regarding your career in Hollywood?


In this industry actors deal with a lot of rejection. I think the most difficult time has been this past year transitioning from NYC to Hollywood, understanding the reality of the industry, who I am in it and how I want people to perceive me. Ultimately trying to stay true to who I am and staying strong through all the "No's". I have no idea what the breakout will be or when. The journey continues and honestly I feel that I've done really well so far, winning 5 awards for my most recent role is definitely a breakout in the right direction. I know I have to just keep the faith, stay strong and if the tactics I'm using to get ahead stop working, then I have to change the way I go about it. But so far so good. 

4. Does a casting couch exist in Hollywood?

It definitely does exist but I do not and never will partake. Unfortunately some do and I've heard true stories of some actresses that I actually really like, that that's how they got ahead, really is disappointing. But to each his own. 



5. Which up coming projects excite you, please give us an elaborate detail of each one you want to discuss?

I am very excited for Julia's release this year in theaters/VOD.. It'll be very cool when the world finally gets to see it. 

I am in the early stages of collaborating with an award winning writer to create a unique film and leading role for myself in the exciting world of Sci Fi/Fantasy. But it's in the very early stages so that's all I can say right now.

I am also in touch with a director and an Australian writing team who've written a big and exciting creature feature/thriller. But because it's also in the beginning stages I can't say more than that. 


6. On what do you spend the most: clothes, accessories, perfumes, underwear, or anything else?

Well I used to have a big shopping addiction. I love fashion and have my own style, but I actually don't spend a lot of money on clothes. As I've grown I've realized how material things don't mean anything to me anymore and I'd rather spend money on something that feeds the bigger picture of why I'm here in LA. 

7. Where do you think you will be after 25 years?

Oh god I have no clue. I'd rather not think about that. Barely coping with the uncertainty of tomorrow!

8. Describe yourself in three words?

A Goddamn Amazonian Queen. (That's one word) 


9. Who, in your opinion, are the most overrated actor and actress in the industry?

I've worked very hard to get where I am and some don't have to. But I know that the hard work makes me a better actor and it's disappointing sometimes to see actresses who become stars that just have absolutely no depth and you wonder how they got into the Spotlight. Clearly not from the talent. At the end of the day I'd rather be known for my hard work and talent and not my hot body or what celebrity I'm dating. 

10. What is your dream role?

I'm interested in strong leading characters. I don't dream about any one role in particular. I'd just like to do good work and hope that the role is juicy enough for me to dive into and have fun. 

11. What do you enjoy more, writing or acting?

Acting. Though I love writing poetry and stream of consciousness-get it all out of my head-type of writing.


12. Do you see yourself as more of a hot body or is there a serious actor hidden somewhere?

9I think my body of work speaks for itself in terms of seeing myself as a serious actor. I am not one to try and get ahead by flaunting my "hot body". I am always active whether it be hiking, yoga, dancing or running but not just to have a nice body, it makes me feel good and confident and also releases blocked energy. Exercising saves my life.


13. Do you believe in flaunting it if you have it?

I believe that if you are in your power and being yourself in its highest form you won't have to flaunt anything. You will naturally attract people to you by doing absolutely nothing. Anything other than that reeks of desperation. 

14. What's the best compliment you have ever received?

You look so much prettier without makeup. 

15. What's the meanest thing or harshest criticism you have ever heard about yourself?

"She's good but she's not THAT good." I won't name who said that to me, cause they might read this, but I was around 16 or 17 when I overheard that, so at the time it was very profound and has stuck with me to this day. I was starring as Anne Frank on stage and remember being extremely proud of my work in it. I thought it to be the cruelest thing you could say about someone who is trying to build themselves up with confidence enough to really try and make it as an actress. After a while I realized that it was their own insecurity of themselves that made them say or think that and so I forgive it. 

16. Who would you want to kiss on screen if you could choose anyone?

Oh gosh, I dunno..I mean I think about certain scenes in movies that completely blew me away and would love to create something as intoxicating. Ryan gosling. Drive. Elevator scene when in slow mo he leans into her and they have this heart pounding earth shattering long passionate kiss. Just out of this world. 

17. Your message to the world and your fans?

Feel the fear and do it anyway. Thank you for all your love and support!!

18. A few words about thefilmguide.net

Thanks for thinking of me for your site.

Natalie Burn (The Expendables 3) Exclusive Interview and Pictures

I was so impressed by the amazing talent and hot assembly of Natalie Burn that I had to dig deep and get her story out of her. Here is what I found and was amazed by. This interview contains some exclusive snaps of the rising star as well.


1. Hello Natalie, your work in The Expendables 3 and Nymph was impressive to say the least, can you guide us through your early life and eventual breakthrough in Hollywood?

"You know my name you don't know my story" 

Natalie Burns
I'm just a regular girl from Ukraine, Kiev (nowadays finally everyone knows where that is) I've been fortunate enough to be given an opportunity in life to come to Hollywood to follow my dreams! I grew up during Chernobyl thinking that it's the worst thing that can happen to Ukraine, who knew that down the line years later the world will be under so many conflicts and disagreements. Only God knows what will happen next. I live each day at a time enjoying my life at its fullest. I take everything that comes my way and I look at it as a blessing. Whatever the outcome is i believe it is for the best! When I got injured several times after being a ballerina since I'm 6 years old I knew my angels are preparing me for a new life. And all I have to do is not to be scared of the changes and follow my intuition. That's when I realized that it is my moment to let go of my dance career and it was my time to take a chance and gamble big with Hollywood. Because that's what it is, It's a game and most of the time you loose. But when you win, you win big! And once you have tasted the success you can never go back to being that once 'just a regular girl'.


2. What, in your opinion, is/will be your biggest break in Hollywood?

Hollywood it's an addiction that you can not beat. Success even if it's small It's still the biggest adrenaline rush you ll ever feel. What you have to learn to control are the falls after the win. That's where so many people just loose it. I see people come and go around me all the time. I see old actors rise back up than drop down again. I see naive young people come with such attitude thinking it's an easy ride to success than quickly disappear with huge disappointments. I see drugs, parties, high expensive life, stubbing in the backs and lies accompanied with beautiful smiles. I have noticed that the toughest part about Hollywood is to sustain your name in the industry. And not just a name but a positive one! I m just lucky enough to be tasting the environment i know i still have a long way to go. And I don't know when or how it will happen. All I know for sure that when it does I ll do my best to hold on to it for as long as I can keeping my name in a positive and professional matter.  

3. In your journey so far what has been the most difficult time for you regarding your career in Hollywood?


The most difficult thing you have to be prepared to face in Hollywood are the denials. You get turned down constantly it's a game where you mostly loose. You have to become indifferent to the word 'NO' but even the strongest and most confident human beings at least once become insecure and question their talents. The key for me is to always move forward I think of my life as a success already. Hey, not bad for a girl from Ukraine. Looking back at the people that are still living in there having same interests, same places, same looks on life I quickly realize how lucky and fortunate I am to be living in Hollywood and pursuing my goals.
No matter what happens to me in the long run I see my myself succeeding already. After all I am living my dream I already became an 'Actress'! 






4. Does a casting couch exist in Hollywood?

I m sure there are people that think casting couch exists in any profession not just in Hollywood. These are the people hoping to get ahead by sleeping around. And I guess to find out how far they really get you would have to ask them about it. I personally believe in hard work and my own pace regardless how long it takes me. It's my path! 

5. Which up coming projects excite you, please give us an elaborate detail of each one you want to discuss?

I'm in pre production with a movie I wrote with Morgan Land (Iceman) "Devil's Hope" I'm going to produce and act in it. 

Synopsis: 
A cop NASSEROS goes undercover to find out who killed his girlfriend and to stop the existence of the new dangerous drug called Devils Hope. The cop finds himself get deeply trapped into a chain of mysterious murders that he tries to investigate. During his research he meets a gipsy girl Divinity who uses Voo Doo in order to help him. Unfortunately after the puzzle is revealed he finds that the truth should have never been revealed. 

Another film I'm looking forward to shooting end of 2015 it's something I wrote and will produce also "Addicts".
Synopsis: Nine addicts are being trapped in the house, which they think is a rehab center and they are all being put there by their loved once, after 9 days of misery and pain they finally realize what truth the house holds for them.

6. On what do you spend the most: clothes, accessories, perfumes, underwear, or anything else?

I used to spend a lot of money on Cloths. But since I opened my production company 7Heaven Productions I have been spending most of my savings on scripts, developing my stories, expending my company and other film oriented stuff. I had realized cloths are just things that mean nothing. It's better to put everything you have into yourself cause in the end one day it will repay you back in a much larger scale.

7. Where do you think you will be after 25 years?

Even if I could predict the future I would prefer not to know it. I will just trust my stars and enjoy my wonderful path!

8. Describe yourself in three words?

Determent, Talented and Confident 

9. Who, in your opinion, are the most overrated actor and actress in the industry?

I think it's overrated when some first time 'actors' get the lead roles straight away because they are models or know the right someone. It's said that those people get the chance when they don't even want it. The once that have never dreamed of being a true artist, the once that never studied or spend years understanding their instrument. And just like that they are in the film trying to carry the movie and connect with the audience. I disrespect the industry sometimes for giving parts to people that in my opinion don't deserve it. When those people have no idea about acting, the work, about the choices and why we do it in the first place. True actors don't do it for fame, money or recognition they do it because they love it and there is nothing in the world they wish to do instead. 

10. What is your dream role?

I would love to play one day the part of 'Cleopatra'. The most powerful and strong women that I admire. And if that doesn't happen than I guess I would say my dream part would be someone that will help me understand myself within better. I m constantly learning, growing and one subject I have yet to truly understand is myself. 

11. How was the experience, working with a super star cast in The Expendables 3. Who were you most impressed by and why?

Being given an opportunity to be a part of the legendary cast of Expendables 3 is a dream. I can't express enough gratitude to Sylvester Stallone for casting me. Even as small of a part as I was given it was an amazing opportunity of a life time. I got to meet all the action heroes at once. After that experience I feel there is nothing I can not do. And I can't wait to see where life will take me next. While being on set of Expendable 3 I realized how very tuned in each actor is with their bodies and emotions. Each one had a different approach to acting but what mattered in the end is the outcome, they were all brilliant at their part. I learned to trust my instincts and never let anyone sidetrack me from my goals. I was most impressed with Sylvester Stallone because he had a rough path in life and he had come a long way to be where he is now. And the only thing that pushed him to not give up is his determination. One day I only wish to have succeeded as much as he has. A great writer, wonderful director, brilliant producer, true actor and a fighter! That's who I want to be when I grow up!



12. Do you see yourself as more of a hot body or is there a serious actor hidden somewhere?

I like to take care of myself and keep my body toned. It's in my blood to exercise and stay fit. I was a ballerina first part of my life and it was my first love and first love is hard to forget. I am unique in my own way and I am proud of my athletic look. I don't try to compete with anyone there are a lot of more beautiful girls than me. My goal is to always be happy with myself regardless of what people think of me. Nevertheless when it comes to films, I'm an actress and if my part requires to play a hot body model than I'll be one. And I'll live like her, breath like her and develop her into something a lot more than whats written on the pages. With that being said of course i prefer to be considered for more serious parts. I would like to stretch my abilities, challenge my emotions and take risks with my choices. Hopefully I'll be fortunate enough that people will trust in me and I'll be offered more complex characters with depth and a lot of meaning. 




13. Do you believe in flaunting it if you have it?

Your talents are what makes you, you! And why not use your every best asset you have and share it with the world. After all we are just entertainers, so let's entertain the audience and give them what they want!

14. What's the best complement you have ever received?

When people get to know me closely they hear my story and complement me on how much I have fought and  achieved at my age. Which will stay a secret :) If I say my number to some people it might sound young and they ll perhaps trust me less and give me fewer opportunities and to others my number might be too big they ll think my chances are already low in continuing and succeeding further with my career. Therefore I prefer to keep my age to myself. After all I am an actress and my range is between 18 to 35! 



15. What's the meanest thing or harshest criticism you have ever heard about yourself?


I was once told by a casting director that my audition was her worst nightmare. I personally think it was a choice that I made with my part that she didn't like and it doesn't mean it was a bad choice it was just something I guess she didn't expect. I like to take risks when I act and I m aware I can not please everyone. As long as I'm satisfied with my performance in the end it's all that matters. This industry is a tough business and you need to understand it before you commit your life to it. You have to be prepared to face a lot of rejections, but you have to look at it as a lesson and move forward with pursuing your dream!

16. Who would you want to kiss on screen if you could choose anyone?

That's a very straight forward question. I guess I'll have to go with Josh Hartnett. I absolutely loved his kiss with Kate Beckinsale in Pearl Harbor and I guess you could say it was my dream to one day have a similar romantic scene with him on screen where we kiss as beautiful as they did. :)

17. Your message to the world and your fans?

"World Peace" to the world! And "thank you for supporting me" to my fans!

Stars: James Franco, Seth Rogen, Randall Par



Perhaps the most controversial movie of the past 5 years was in the end a great comic feast. The movie that caused Sony Entertainment to get hacked and threatened was basically a below the belt hit at the current supreme leader of North Korea. To portray a living man in such manner is bordering on defamation and if that man is revered as a god by millions, then there must be some criticism against the appropriateness of the subject. Nonetheless, all aside the movie was hilarious!

The interview is a well complied action comedy describing the struggle of two friends in their pursuit of interviewing a greatly popular but highly detested personality, a dictator, Kim Jong-un. Aaron Rapaport, the producer of “Skylark Tonight”, along with his host Dave Skylark are known for broadcasting a popular television show, where they aim to make bizarre discoveries and headlines about celebrities. After a 1000-episodes bash, Aaron realizes that what he does is plain pathetic and that he should be doing stuff that benefits his viewers in some way. Tempt the fate and he soon gets a chance of interviewing the news sensation, Kim Jong-un. Plot twist? CIA. And from here begins a series of events leading to Kim’s interview and then his downfall as a dictator, followed by a revolution.
The duo, James Franco and Seth Rogen as we know them, have delivered a spectacular performance. The plot is new. There’s comedy. There’s action. A bit draggy, the story has good humor and keeps you glued to the screen until the end. Rogen is more or less the conventional Rogen that we are accustomed to seeing. Although Franco takes the lead with his impeccable comic-timing, both the actors have done justice to their roles. Lizzy Caplan, also appears sparingly, adding prettiness to the screen and has done a good job with her character.
For those of you who like comedy, this movie is not to be missed. It’s likely to give you a fairly good round of laughs. And if nothing else, watch it for Franco or Rogen. Enough said.
