Rebecca Mader Exclusive Video Interview (Charlotte on LOST)

While I get to interview many people for Collider, they’re usually done at a hotel and almost always feel rushed.  That’s because a press junket has to accommodate journalists from around the world and everyone needs time with people promoting the movie or TV show.  A typical TV interview is 4 minutes…as you can imagine, it’s hard to get more than a sound bite. That’s why I love it when I’m able to talk with people for an extended amount of time, as it lets you have a real conversation.

And that’s what happened last week with Rebecca Mader.  Instead of the usual hotel interview, I met her at a spot on Wilshire Blvd. (it’s in Los Angeles) and we conducted an awesome extended interview.  Not only did we cover her work on Lost (she plays Charlotte Lewis), but we were able to talk about how she transitioned from modeling into acting, her early work on Love Monkey and Justice, and so much more.  It’s a great interview so hit the jump and check it out.  As usual, I’ve listed what we talked about above the video:

Finally, a big thank you to Rebecca Mader for giving me so much of her time.
