Celebrity Spotlight – Marcus Griffiths


Please tell us about the film…

So the film is about a group of young private school students, 3 boys and 3 girls who are part of an extra curricular army cadet training scheme called CTS.’ On their last day of term they’re asked to perform a routine patrol of the school grounds of the fictional Dhoultham academy which the boys attend. However this particular night happens to coincide with the anniversary of a spooky legend attached to the school. What starts out as a pretty straightforward patrol turns into something a lot more horrifying for the six of them.

Who do you play in the movie and what are they like?

I play a character called Aki, he’s the rugby captain of the school but struggling academically. He’s cocky, quite arrogant and a bit of a prankster but he’s also a natural leader, has a big heart and is the one the group look to for guidance when the going gets tough.

It was the character initially.  I had never really played someone like that before but when I read the script I immediately saw how I would go about piecing him together. I knew people like him in my own life so saw a way to bring out all of his obvious traits but some not so obvious as well. And then the writing as a whole from Paul Raschid was, for someone as young as he is, so detailed and observed that it was a no brainier.

Were there any supernatural goings on whilst you were on set?

I can’t think of any off the top of my head. But we had a lot of night shoots on the grounds of the school that we used and just walking around there by yourself could freak you out a bit.

Do you believe in ghosts?  Tell us why?

I think I do believe in ghosts actually. In fact it’s funny you say that, just the other day I woke up and my small bin lid from my bathroom was just in the middle of my bedroom floor. I was like ‘how the hell did that get there’? As far as I know I’m not a sleep-walker so it really freaked me out all day. I’ve yet to solve the ‘bin lid’ case haha!

Who is the biggest prankster from the cast?

Oh that’s hard! We were on such a tight schedule shooting there wasn’t really time for major pranks, but I think Tom (Law who plays Daniel) threw a few in there from time to time. He’s a playful chap!

If you could spend an evening with any one from history, who would it be and why?

Michael Jackson! Without question. I’d just grill him about his life and how his incredible music came to be. I’d just like to tell him what an inspiration he is to me as an entertainer who gave his very soul to his art!

Avengers: Age of Ultron……….INSANE!!!

Who is the funniest member of the cast?

For me personally it was Morgane (Polanski who plays Sophie). Half the time she didn’t know why, but she used to crack me up sometimes for no apparent reason.

What is your favourite memory of making the film?

I know it sounds gushy, but honestly it’s just coming together with these five other talented actors, all from different places, who all just left their ego at the door and really bonded as individuals and as actors all striving to make the best film possible. Doesn’t happen all the time in acting projects but when it does the experience is priceless.


Unhallowed Ground will be released on selected screens across the UK on 12th June 2015, followed by the online and DVD release on 29th June and 13th July and the film will be introduced to foreign markets at Cannes 2015.
