The Horror Honeys: 6/6/6 with Tiffani Brooke Fest

6/6/6 with Tiffani Brooke Fest

A Signature Guest Honey 6/6/6 by Tonjia Atomic

Tiffani Brooke Fest - Born in San Antonio Texas as an identical twin, Tiffani Fest has been acting and performing since she was a child. She was part of the first graduating class of the North East School of the Arts, the premier school of its kind in her hometown. She then moved to New York City with only $500 in her pocket and a dream, and paid her own way through college at Fordham University at Lincoln Center, where she graduated with a BA in theatre/acting and a minor in French. She has since relocated to LA and is continuing to pursue her lifelong passion.


1. Circus of the Dead is receiving rave reviews and positive festival attention. As a cast member, what has that been like for you? 
It has been one of the most amazing experiences in my acting career. I feel honored and blessed to be a part of a film that is receiving so many awards and garnering so much attention, and the respect and love of so many fans. 

2. You've lived in Texas, New York, and Los Angeles. Be honest, which city has the best food?
Ha! that's a tough one. Honestly there are certain dishes in each of these cities which are the BEST I've ever had. In Texas, "tex mex" is truly my favorite food - breakfast tacos served all day, and the best refried beans and barbacoa you will ever taste. In New York, pizza really is the best. Period. The first thing I eat when I land in NYC is a slice of pie as I walk to the subway. And in Los Angeles, I am in love with pupusas. It's a local Salvadorean dish, and I've never had them better anywhere else.

3. Billy Pon speaks very highly of you. How was it to work with him as a director?
Billy Pon is an amazing human. I love him dearly and am proud to call him a friend. The fact that after we shot the film, he called me to tell me I was one of his favorite scenes in the movie, and that he believed in me as an actress, really meant the world coming from him. He has really championed me from the beginning, and I owe a lot to him in terms of opportunities that are now coming my way as a result of Circus of the Dead. We plan to work together again on his film Mr. Fister. I can't wait. He's a true artist and a perfectionist.


4. Along with acting you are also a musician. Tell us about your band.
My band is a unique blend of rock, funk, and soul. The bass player and I have been friends for several years when he approached me to be a back up singer in the band he was forming. I ended up becoming the lead singer by accident really - and it all just fell into place from there. It was a very organic experience.


5. What album/s are you currently listening to?
PJ Harvey's last album, Let England Shake, has been on heavy rotation lately. It's pretty epic. Alongside Masked Intruder, the Cramps, and some friends of mine's new album "When An Animal Grows" by Tits. If you haven't heard them I highly recommend downloading their debut album for free. It's pretty fantastic. You can find it on their FB page.

6. Do you have a dream role? If so, what is it?
Gosh. that's a hard one. I have ideas of what kinds of roles I'd love to play - something like Michelle William's role in Blue Valentine, Kate Winslet's role in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Juliette Lewis in Natural Born Killers. I love strong female characters in grittty independent films. Anything Winona Ryder has been in are truly dream roles of mine - her roles in Dracula, Heathers, Edward Scissorhands - she was truly an inspiration to me growing up. I wanted to be in all her movies.
With Bill Oberst Jr. in Circus of the Dead

List 6 of your favorite bands.

The Smiths. 
The Pretenders. 
Fleetwood Mac. 
The Cramps. 
Neil Young. 
The Velvet Underground.

List 6 things about an upcoming project.
I have a couple projects I am pretty stoked on. Foreseen - a paranormal thriller I play the lead in, has some awesome twists and turns. Great dialogue. Based on a novel called "The Lie." It's smart and keeps you on your toes the entire time.

I am also attached to two upcoming films with Spencer Grey shooting this summer - the first of which is called Left Hand Lords. I can't say too much about it yet but I can say this - I get to work with Bill Oberst Jr again, and also Billy Blair and Sheri Davis. I think Spencer Grey's writing is mindblowingly good so I can't wait to sink my teeth into one of his layered, deeply flawed characters. And the story is going to be as dark and twisted as ever!

I'm not sure that was 6 things, but stay tuned. I'll post more about these and any upcoming projects and developments on my FB page.
