We were pleased to have one of the industries leading ladies for an interview this episode! Legendary Scream Queen Brinke Stevens joins us and we chat about her amazing career.
Born in San Diego, California, Stevens has studied several foreign languages, including Esperanto and gained a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Psychology from San Diego State University and a Master of Science in Marine Biology from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, California.
Stevens has appeared in over 100 movies, primarily in the horror, sci-fi and fantasy film genres. From her long list of acting credits she has gained notoriety as a scream queen, to the extent that she was once the subject of a Jeopardy! answer: "Brinke Stevens is known by this semi-rhyming title." (Question: What is a Scream Queen?). The Jeopardy! question was asked during the Scripps Institution of Oceanography special. In addition to acting, Stevens has co-written a number of screenplays, co-produced two documentaries, and served as an onset decorator.
