My newest interview subject, Christine Elise, first made an impression on me via Child’s Play 2, the advertisements for which scared me when I was younger, but led to enjoyment of the film as I got older. I would later see Christine in projects like Head Of The Class and Beverly Hills, 90210, and be impressed by her acting skills. In addition to her acting, Christine Elise is also a writer who has not only written scripts, but a novel as well, Bathing And The Single Girl, and on top of that, she’s an accomplished photographer. After having met Christine Elise at the Chiller Theatre convention in April of 2019, as shown in this interview’s cover photo, I knew that I would love to interview her. We spoke about acting, writing, Christine’s punk rock background and more on January 31st, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know her.
Head Of The Class
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the debut of Head Of The Class. My next interview subject was one of the only cast members to stick with the show for its’ entire run. Khrystyne Haje played Simone Foster, a poet in the advanced class of Mr. Moore (Howard Hesseman) from seasons 1 through 4, and later Mr. MacGregor (Billy Connolly) for the fifth and final season. Ms. Haje has bought the good heart and smarts of her character into her everyday life as an environmental activist. Along the way, she’s been a model, won a Daytime Emmy, did a USO tour with Bob Hope, and is currently in talks for a reboot of Head Of The Class. I spoke to her about all of this and more on May 10th, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know her.
