We Talk With Karen Bryson

101

You probably know the stunning Karen Bryson from her role as Avril Powell in Shameless, now Karen is starring in The Carrier and we caught up with Karen to find out all about her new film and being an actress.  

Please introduce yourself to our readers.

I’m an actor, would-be writer, producer and editor of an online magazine called Those London Chicks.

You recently stared in The Carrier, what is the film about?

The second wave of an antibiotic resistant infection sweeps through Europe. As England falls, a cabin crew escape on a damaged 747 to find safety in Greenland. But the infection is on the plane…
We see the depths humanity  will go to, to stay alive.
Forced to land in a country tearing itself apart, they fight for survival.

I play Maria Adams who has has lost her son in the first wave of the pandemic. She is on the plane with her husband Kevin (Andrew French) they are luckily together and uninfected, but their loss is huge. She is very religious and she struggles with her faith. Through the film she witnesses the depths people will go to in order to survive. They all want the same thing but have very different ways of going about it. Maria stands strong for what she believes.

Do you think you would cope in a similar situation?

I have absolutely no idea…I think, when we read about real life stories or watch a film or play about life and death situations. Conditions, events or series of events where someone has shown extreme bravery and overcome incredible circumstances to survive. The thing is, we all, including myself probably think or like to think that we would cope extremely well. More often then not we identify with the “heroes”. But truth be told we just don’t know. Let’s hope we don’t ever have to find out.

The Carrier Karen

What is the one thing you would miss most if a pandemic occurred in reality?

“Normality”.

Do you have a favourite memory from filming?

There were many…but one sticks out. It was on one of our night shoots. It was freezing and the temperature was dropping, the set (plane) was even colder! The novelty and excitement of being on a night shoot was beginning to wear off a little. Then whilst on our “lunch” break at 3am we all collectively encountered a second wind and the entire team had such a laugh. I’m not even sure why?? The food, the strangeness of the movie business, tiredness, cold, the fact that we were all feeling the same thing? Not sure, but it is one of the most enjoyable “lunch” breaks on location I’ve ever encountered. It weirdly, made me feel honored be an actor and be able, as part of a collective tell stories.

When did you decide you wanted to be an actress and why?

I have wanted to be an actress or at least creative for as long as I can remember. If I am to be honest, there wasn’t really an option not to try my damnedest to give it a fair shot! In terms of why?….. I just followed my heart.

What has been your favourite role?

There have been so many favourites, especially while I’m playing them! But I have to say one of the most fun characters by far has to be Avril Powell in Shameless. It was so great to get scripts each week and read through them and discover the latest antics of this wonderful character!

What was the last book you read?  What did you think about it?

The Awakening by Sidra Jafri, a brilliant book, which was so enlightening. It offers 9 Principles for finding the courage to change your life. It’s not as though I wanted to change my life, but it was a stark reminder of how to self reflect without judgment. To encourage personal growth. Because of the ups and downs in this business its so hard not to think (at times) that your good enough or to critise oneself. But with NLP, which explores the power of thought, your thought. Our (sometimes) damaging pre programmed belief systems that can stay with us, can be looked at and to let go of. A wonderful book!

Describe yourself in three words?

Creative, optimistic and loyal

What is next for you?

To hopefully continue to produce good quality work that I’m proud of.

Thank you so much to Karen for taking the time to chat with us!
