Farrah Abraham is the Re-Gift That Keeps on Coming Back

Farrah Abraham is just so very special, such a spectacular treasure, that you never even know what kind of magic she has in store for us. For example, did you know that she's making her acting debut in a horror movie called "Axeman 2: Overkill" next year? She's playing a character named Fannie Rae Baker, who Farrah describes as a "seemingly well-intended conservative evangelical do gooder." I know what you're thinking -- Christmas came early this year! -- and you are totally correct. Now let's hear Farrah talk about it.
On how she worked on her character:
When getting in character for Fannie, I will draw upon the overbearing beat the bible over your head mentality that others mention or think of when thinking 'Über Bible Thumper.' Getting a little radical about the bible and taking the words farther than the way God intended. I’ve been around all sorts of Christianity growing up and this leads me to feeling content with researching and playing the role of Fannie perfectly.
Why she chose to do the movie:
I was more compelled to do this role because of the story line including Christianity and horror, not to mention I like that my character is a wife as well. This was a character I could see myself having personal growth with.
What it's like to work on a movie set:
Practicing lines with the cast is the most important part to me and let’s not forget reciting lines for a couple hours in front of the mirror which I don’t mind ;) The designers, wardrobe, hair and makeup finish the rest of the look with clothing and makeup. Usually I’m the one in charge of over-seeing the finished look, I’m glad I only have to focus on the tone and Fannies’s character being portrayed through myself.
This delightful tale:
I got into acting when I took part in a play in grade school when I played the female main character role and my male main character supporting my part forgot his lines so I had to apply improv to help my fellow young actor smoothly complete the scene in the middle of the play. From there show choir helped me continue performing in front of audiences and many other acting, dancing, and singing activities I took part in. I continue to develop my acting abilities so that now I am ready to play characters that challenge my emotions. I will always be open-minded to having an acting coach help me for a specific role to really have a focus to WOW others who will be watching the characters I play in their anticipated future feature films.
What a Renaissance woman, huh? What a jack(ass) of all trades.
