    Aimee Lou Wood Interview (Sex Education 3)

    Aimee Lou Wood Interview (Sex Education 3)

    Sex Education is a must-watch show and Aimee Lou Wood is a must-follow rising star in it. The Netflix series focuses on a group of students at Moordale Secondary School trying to figure out how to fit in, grow up and find themselves. One of the most beautiful things about the show is that it features a diverse cast and explores a wide variety of very human challenges with humor, heart and pathos.
    Wood’s character, Aimee, begins her Sex Education journey by figuring out who her true friends are in Season 1. Wood is a scene stealer in the role right out the gate, but the work she delivers the following season is on another level. In Season 2, Aimee is sexually assaulted and the way the show explores how one might process such an experience is incredibly layered and powerful. Rather than keep the storyline confined to an episode or two, Sex Education recognizes the fact that such trauma isn’t something one can quickly leave behind. In Season 3, Aimee is still working to understand the incident and its effects on her with Wood continuing to bring that story to life on screen with such sincerity and nuance.
    Check out this edition of Collider Ladies Night to hear all about Wood's experience studying at RADA, how she scored the role of Aimee on Sex Education, lessons learned from the show's intimacy coordinators, what it was like winning a BAFTA, where she thinks Aimee's head is at at the end of Sex Education Season 3, and so much more!

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead Interview (Kate)

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead Interview (Kate)

    Collider Ladies Night recently celebrated its very first returning guest, Karen Gillan for Gunpowder Milkshake. Now the show welcomes back its second returnee, Mary Elizabeth Winstead! Winstead swung by the Collider studio for an episode of Ladies Night back in 2019 for the release of Gemini Man and now she’s on the show again in honor of her new Netflix movie, Kate.
    Winstead headlines the film as the title character, a skilled assassin who winds up being targeted herself. When Kate realizes she’s been poisoned, she sets out to track down who did it. Kate is essentially non-stop action with Winstead at the heart of almost every single scene. As though that isn't challenging enough, Winstead and the team behind Kate hit a little bump in that road that called for Winstead to step it up with her stuntwork -- more than ever before.
    On this episode of Collider Ladies Night, Winstead details the challenges faced while making Kate and explains why she wound up doing more of her own stuntwork than you might expect. On top of that, Winstead looks back on fan favorite films like Sky High, Final Destination 3, Birds of Prey and more!

    Emily Rudd Interview (Fear Street)

    Emily Rudd Interview (Fear Street)

    This was a very big summer for Emily Rudd. Not only was it announced that she joined the cast of the Amazon series, Hunters, for Season 2 and was set to star in HBO Max’s Moonshot alongside Cole Sprouse and Lana Condor, but her star also soared courtesy of the popularity of Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy. 
    Rudd first appears in the second film of the series, Fear Street 1978. Cindy Berman is a Shadyside resident determined to leave the troubled town behind despite the fact that her sister Ziggy (Sadie Sink) is convinced there’s nothing they can do -- all Shadysiders are doomed. The reality of their situation comes into focus for Cindy during the summer of 1978 at Camp Nightwing when the Shadyside campers and counselors are targeted by an ax-wielding killer.
    Given my confidence that Fear Street is bound to become a genre classic and my sky high hopes we’ll be watching Rudd’s work for years to come, having her on an episode of Collider Ladies Night was an absolute must. Check out this chat to hear all about how Rudd got her start with music videos, what the audition process was like for Fear Street, how they pulled off that gnarly Fear Street 1978 ending and so much more!

    Maggie Q Interview ( The Protégé)

    Maggie Q Interview ( The Protégé)

    Maggie Q is kicking ass on screen yet again in Martin Campbell’s The Protégé. Q leads the film as Anna, a contract killer trained by Samuel L. Jackson’s Moody, who’s also like a father to her. When Moody is murdered, Anna sets out on a mission to track down the individual who had him killed.
    Q is an undeniable top tier action star in The Protégé. While I’d like to bet that skillset was always there in some form, Q has spent a good deal of time honing that craft over the years to get to the level that she’s at here. With The Protégé now in theaters, Q joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to revisit her journey from kicking off her action film run in Asia, to starring opposite Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible III and, of course, to headlining The CW’s Nikita.
    Hear about all of that, the scariest stunt Q had to do in The Protégé, her interest in making another Protégé movie and loads more in this edition of Collider Ladies Night

    Olivia Scott Welch Interview (Fear Street)

    Olivia Scott Welch Interview (Fear Street)

    Olivia Scott Welch is having quite the year. Not only did she headline the Amazon series Panic, she’s also part of the cast of one of the biggest releases of 2021, Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy. Welch first appears in Fear Street 1994 as Sam, a high school student who finds herself right smack in the middle of the Shadyside curse. Then, in Fear Street 1666, Welch plays Hannah Miller, the local pastor’s daughter who’s accused of witchcraft alongside Sarah Fier (Kiana Madeira).
    It’s a phenomenal trilogy that celebrates genre through the years while also delivering a powerful narrative about being labeled an outcast and introducing the world to a downright stellar ensemble of young stars that are bound to continue to deliver big in film and television - Welch included.
    With the expectation that Fear Street enthusiasm will remain sky high - yes, I’m one of the ones happy to call the films instant classics - having the two stars on Collider Ladies Night was an absolute must. We shared the conversation with Madeira a couple of weeks back and now it’s time to put Welch in the Ladies Night spotlight.
    Hear all about Welch's experience working with Madeira and director Leigh Janiak on Fear Street, her earliest sources of inspiration, how it felt when her Nickelodeon pilot, The Dunes Club, didn’t get picked up and so much more on this edition of Collider Ladies Night!

    Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad)

    Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad)

    James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad features a stacked cast of very talented, accomplished actors including Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena and so many more. But do you know who winds up being a major Suicide Squad standout? Hollywood newcomer Daniela Melchior.
    Melchior plays Ratcatcher II in the film. She’s got the ability to communicate with and control rats. When she attempts a bank heist with those rats, she's caught and thrown into Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary. However, now she’s getting the opportunity to reduce her sentence. All she’s got to do is take Amanda Waller’s (Viola Davis) offer and join her Suicide Squad for an extremely dangerous mission.
    Given that I’m betting Melchior is going to wind up being a Suicide Squad favorite and the fact that I have very high hopes that the film will send her star soaring in the industry, having her as a guest on Collider Ladies Night was an absolute must. Check out this chat to hear all about how she scored her first Hollywood opportunities, how she celebrated booking Ratcatcher II, the unforgettable advice she received from Gunn, a whole bunch of The Suicide Squad spoiler details and loads more!

Best interview ever

Kristian Harloff is the best interviewer. Not asking about the most recent events but about a person’s whole life and career. He really tries to get to know a person. Everyone needs to listen!
