Interview: Carly Pope on What Sort of Movie Set You Can Expect on a Neill Blomkamp Film

Carly Pope has had quite the career in film and television. The Vancouver native has starred in the series Popular, as well as a few new Neill Blomkamp films, including Elysium. Once again she reunites with Blomkamp on their latest film, Demonic.

I had a chance to speak to Carly about her work on Demonic. I asked her what it’s like to work on a Neill Blomkamp set. Plus, she spoke about getting to work in her hometown on Demonic and current life in Australia.

REAL TALK:

Carly was very sweet. Super engaging and fun to talk to. She had great energy and enthusiasm. I was very pleased with how the interview turned out. I found it super cool that she got to work on Demonic in her home city of Vancouver. They did start filming last summer, so that’s a fairly quick turnaround to have the film releasing now.

Whether you’re a fan of him or not, Neill Blomkamp is one distinctive filmmaker. He certainly has a unique style and look to his film. I can spot his work fairly quickly. Demonic was an interesting project. As I mentioned to Carly, it was a mix of horror and sci-fi. There have been plenty of demonic themed films, but nothing quite like this one.

I was curious to hear what a Blomkamp set is like. I felt Carly did a good job describing it. She is a great source to answer that question considering she’s worked now on three of his films.

Overall, a really good time chatting with Carly and I felt she described very well what it’s like to work with Blomkamp.

DEMONIC is out in Theaters, On Demand and Digital on August 20th
