Slated to start shooting in November for a 2018 release, Nicholas Hunt’s upcoming thriller Safe Place is one for indie horror fans to put on the “must watch” list, considering the actresses who have been cast. As of this writing, and most likely not until November, when they all gather in Titusville, Florida to begin shooting the film, none of the ladies in the cast have ever worked with, or even met, any of the others in person. Despite that, all of them seemed to have bonded through social media and are very much looking forward to working with one another, something that is evident in the following recent interview the ladies; Ashley Mary Nunes, Genoveva Rossi, Jordan Phipps, Lara Jean Mummert, and Yvelisse Cedrez, did exclusively for Idol Features.
(Author’s Note: The actresses featured in this article were all slated to appear in the film as of the date of this article’s publication. See the film’s Facebook fan page, which is linked to below, to keep abreast of any cast additions or changes.)
Just hit play to hear the June 12, 2017 exclusive interview with five of the six actresses of Safe Place;
Ashley Mary Nunes, Genoveva Rossi, Jordan Phipps, Lara Jean Mummert, and Yvelisse Cedrez.
Ashley Mary Nunes (left), who has star billing in Safe Place, has already made a name for herself in indie horror with featured roles in Inhuman Resources, All Through the House, and the upcoming Death Ward 13. Also a popular cosplayer, Ashley was actually dressed as Wonder Woman during the interview. More details on that will emerge during an upcoming solo interview with Ashley right here in the not-too-distant future. Genoveva Rossi (right) is the most experienced horror actress in the cast, with 66 of her nearly 100 film credits (so far) being horror films. Her feature-length films include Hunters, Apocalypse Kiss, I Spill Your Guts, A Dark Place Inside, and Herschell Gordon Lewis’s BloodMania. Some of her notable horror shorts are The Abducted, Mr Bones, and her directorial debut; Attack of the Killer Chickens.
Also trained dancer, Lara Jean Mummert (left) has a diverse resume that includes stage productions of Sesame Street Live. As for her prior dramatic and horror screen credits of note, she gave memorable performances in 2 Jennifer, Anomaly, as well as in the short, An Unplanned Awakening. Besides doing horror, Yvelisse Cedrez (right), who studied at Andi Matheny Acting Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida, has trained in aerial arts and stage combat. She also has a good flair for comedy, describing herself as “a skeleton wrapped in angry meat.” Her horror acting skills can be seen in Everyday Spooky, Amelia and Charley, and the upcoming Slash Cam.
Jordan Phipps is the latest addition to the cast, having replaced the actress originally cast for the role of Rachel just one day before this interview, but seems a perfect fit with the rest of the actresses here. Some of the notable titles on her resume include Close Calls, 10/31/16, Wrenchocracy, and Cold Comfort. Kat Kemmet (right) was the only actress in the cast absent from the June 12th interview, but got a warm shout-out from her castmates. She trained at Truthful Acting Studios in Orlando and her notable titles include The Inside, One (a Pulse tribute), and Power Walk.
