Leona Vaughan – Cops and Monsters
By: Jamie Steinberg
Q) What made you want to be a part of Cops and Monsters?
A) I thought the script was great and loved the concept of a Scottish based web series dealing with amazing storylines.
Q) How was your character originally described to you?
A) Alicia was described as a no-nonsense young woman who meant business and someone who came into the series trying to regain some control on the investigation… (trying not to give away spoilers)
Q) Was there anything you added to your role that wasn’t originally scripted for you?
A) I tried to make her have a sarcastic sense of humor. I loved playing her. She was fun, sexy and didn’t really care what people thought of her.
Q) What did you find challenging about filming a web series over say working in TV or film?
A) It was a challenge to fit in all of our scenes into one day, but I loved how we had to push ourselves to get the best out of everyone.
Q) What were some of your most memorable moments from filming Cops and Monsters?
A) Definitely my first ever lesbian kiss! And, obviously, meeting such lovely people to work with.
Q) What do you want to be sure fans know about your character?
A) That like Alicia, you don’t have to fit in to the crowd. You can be your own person and have fun with it.
Q) What can fans do to help ensure a second season?
A) Please keep crowd funding, sharing, liking and tweeting about us!
Q) What do you hope viewers take away from watching Cops and Monsters?
A) Ultimately, enjoyment out of the show, but hopefully just a special show which is made in Glasgow and can be shared with everyone!
