I first interviewed my friend, actress Lisa London, via e-mail for the website RetroJunk about a decade or so ago. Although I’d been doing interviews for several years by that point, I was still a little rusty. I remained friends with Lisa, though, and a decade or so later, I reached out to her about doing a second interview, this time on the phone for Pop Geeks. She agreed, and we spoke recently about some of her credits from the past decade, while also approaching some of her older credits from new angles. I hope you all enjoy this follow-up interview.
The Naked Cage
My first exposure to my next interview subject came when I purchased a VHS copy of The Naked Cage in the mid-00s after having read about it in several books about 80s movies. An excellent contribution to the genre of women-in-prison movies, the film starred Shari Shattuck as a woman named Michelle, who is framed for a bank robbery and has to survive a maximum security prison. I loved that movie, and a decade or so later, I befriended Shari Shattuck on Facebook. There’s more to her than acting, though. She’s also had experience as a model and an author, and I talked to her on Tuesday, April 25th about all that and more. I hope you enjoy getting to know this talent.
