“Ditched” Interview | Actress Marika Sila | The Filmcraziest Show

“Ditched” Interview | Actress Marika Sila | The Filmcraziest Show

Ditched is a story about an ambulance that is overturned at the side of a highway, in a ditch below, after it crashed during a prison transfer. Still stuck in the upside down ambulance include Melina (Marika Sila), a criminal named Franson (Kris Loranger), and many others. When they have an unexpected visit, Melina leads them all in a night-long fight for survival. The twists and turns for the film are fun as they come about, seeming to promise one kind-of film before going in a different direction.  Sila leads her first horror film here, and I was able to speak with her about the release for my podcast The Filmcraziest Show. In our conversation, we talk about what she related to most about her character, the importance of representation in mainstream media, some of her acting inspirations and Miss Congeniality, her tolerance for gore and this being her first horror film, as well as working with such a collaborative team.
