"Hello, Emma. I got your dm." - 1x03, Piper Shaw/Lakewood Slasher
I know your name is not Emma, lol. Like the reference? Anyways, I did get your message on Reddit, and here can be a good space to maybe talk away from Kenneth's harassment situation. Here are some questions I asked:
A. I did a Q&A with William Scharpf (Stuntman of Ghostface in Season 3) Can you let me know what you think?
1. How did you come across doing stunts? I was a professional water skier. I water-skied on the Pro Tour (type of water ski) and one Saturday morning during qualifying, a buddy of mine, he shows up just as I’m taking off to ski, and he had a jet lagged makers haircut, and I was like “Hey, that’s a stupid haircut.” And he’s like “Fuck you. I was James Bond’s stunt double.” I was like, “What?!” So, then I had to go do my qualifying round and that night I was drinking beer and he’s telling me about being a stuntman.
2. What stunts do you specialize in? Mostly water, cars, fights, and high free falls. And a lot of rigging. You know, wire work.
3. Did you have any prior experiences in sports or just mainly waterski? Oh, I did every sport under the sun.
4. How long have you been doing stunts for? 30 years.
5. Did you have a favorite actor/actress working with on Scream? Tony "The Candyman" was awesome! He's super professional. You know he's an older guy. We had a big fight scene to do. You know, he's all beat up and stuff. But he's fantastic and superb. Giorgia Whigham (Beth) and CJ Wallace (Amir) were great! RJ (Deion) was cool. Not a lot of names I remember really. Besides Tyga (Jay). Tyga. He was only there because he was a Kardashian groupie. They totally put him in there for ratings. The fucker couldn’t act. He’s a big pussy actually, especially when it came to stunts. He looked like a little Prima Donna. He's not even an actor. He just you know... I don't know why he was just there. He's not an actor. He looks like a Kardashian. Another Kardashian coattail rider.
6. Did you have a favorite kill performing? All were fun to do. Kills all run together. Killed one, killed them all.
7. Any thoughts about the costume when you saw it? It’s just another job. I don’t get too much excited about much of anything. Just another job. Just another set of wardrobe.
8. How was it like to wear the mask and robe? Creepy and hard to breathe during fights. When you step on the fucking thing (while running), you know it’s, a pain in the ass... I wasn't, you know, a big Scream aficionado. You know, I just got the job... It was a lot of fun playing Ghostface... It was like your in a big burlap sack. It's like a giant burlap cape and a hood. A giant burlap hoodie. That hood is really tight, you know, it’s just tugged around the mask so you can’t tell wether it’s a guy or a girl... It felt like a bunch of rags piled on me. It was a one piece suit. Nothing distinctly that I can describe... I had the set costumer get me in and out of it for every shot, make sure everything is working on me, stuff like that.
9. Did you have a favorite stunt moment doing? Jumping through door glass was fun. That was pretty much the only stunt I did as Ghostface. Fun stuff. I was just running and... you know most of my stunts were just stuff with the knife and close proximities with knives. Rubber knives and you know the kills. That (jumping through door glass) was just really the only stunt I did. They (door glass) do have electrical charges on them and they hit the button right as your hitting the glass and sometimes if they're late you have breakaway glass. Combonation... You have to worry about your eyes, keep your eyes closed afterwards and they fill the glass with compressed air and blow all the glass stuff off your face.
10. Did the director give you any instructions on what to do, or was it mostly based on your movements, like swinging the knife or running around? The director did his directions under the plot. Like, ”You’re gonna stab Tyga’s character in the head.” Stuff like that.
11. Did you choreograph any of the scenes in the show? Yep, all of them. Mainly stunt related.
12. Did you have a most exhausting /tiring stunt moment? Long fight with Tony was exhausting.
13. Any risky stunts? Nothing on that. That (Scream Season 3 Stuff) was pretty lame.
14. How did you get the job as Ghostface in Scream? I got the job as the stunt coordinator and I was originally doing Season 1, and at the same time I was doing another bigger TV series that required more of my attention. I was doing Underground The TV Series. So, I handed the job off to my buddy Stanton Barrett. But I was going to play Ghostface in Season 1. He’s one of my best friends. I gave the job to him. Stanton’s one of the best all around stunt guys I know.
15. Do YOU like scary movies? Don't like scary movies. Not at all. They’re scary, haha! I like comedy and action. And historical dramas.
16. Did you meet or hear Roger Jackson on set? Nope, didn't meet him.
17. Did you get a chance to see the series at all? No. I don't watch hardly anything I do.
18. How was it like working with Brett Matthews (Director of Scream: Resurrection)? Brett's a great helper. You know, he went and called ahead and... Yeah, Brett was really good.
19. Were there multiple/different Ghostface costumes on set that you had to wear? Yeah, that have differences to everything. And I would specify like if I was on it, I’d make sure it wasn’t dragging on the ground. I would just try to help out with how I feel. You know, they’d have standard costumes that I’d modify and the professionals would modify.
20. Would you come back as Ghostface if there was a Season 4? It depends on what other job opportunities are available. I'm not gonna say no, but I can take it or leave it. It happens if I have an opening in my schedule, I'd probably do it.
B. I also asked Stanton Barrett (Season 1 Stuntman) questions too.Tell me your thoughts on this one too:
1. What stunts do you mainly specialize in? A lot of cars and motorcycles, bikes, skiing, mountain bikes. I did six professional sports and I’ve been doing stunts for 30 years so I’d say about almost everything, haha. Fight scenes are pretty fun. There’s always a lot going on with them. That makes it interesting and significant.
2. How was it like playing the Lakewood Slasher? It's just like any other part. I guess playing the part, you know? When you have the mask on, you, you gotta use more movements and body language and things to make it tell the story. The mask was uncomfortable for a while but we made some adjustments to get it comfortable. I was a pretty intrical part of helping, like, giving them ideas on how to make that work and more functional so they took my ideas and made it.
3. Did you have a favorite cast member working with on set? Yeah, the lead actress (Willa Fitzgerald) was amazing. I enjoyed Emma’s actress. A real actress with talent.
4. Did you get a chance to see the series at all? Uh, no actually I didn’t really watch any of them.
5. Did you have a favorite kill performing? No, I’m not really into that stuff too much. I didn’t really remember any of those scenes really too much. I mean, anything with action is fun. To create a character, how to make it a part of a story. But scary movies is not my thing.
6. Did you use a prop knife for most of a time or was it a real buck knife? No, they are prop knives.
7. Did you have a favorite stunt moment? No, just another day at the office, haha.
8. Did you have a most scary/tiring stunt moment? No, I don’t do scenes I’m afraid of.
9. How was it like working with the Scream Team? I don’t remember any specific director working with. Uh, Brian (Brian Dannelly, Director of Episodes 4 and 5) I do remember him. He’s great. But I mean, overall most crews are pretty good with productions.
10. Do YOU like scary movies? No, I like making them. Much action and creative it takes but I don’t like watching them.
C. Have you seen the shows Slasher, Scream Queens, and Harper's Island?
D. Did you get to ask Alec Rayme (S2 Stuntman) some questions? What questions would you like to ask him?
E. Do you have any questions for William Scharpf (Season 3 Ghostface) and Stanton Barrett (Season 1 Lakewood Slasher)?
A. I will see. Can I found somewhere list of how victims die in Slasher?
B. Never heard of it.
C. I earlier asked him if he played Kieran's killer but he blocked me.
E. I don't know. They seem to have no interest in Scream and no knowledge of questions regarding plot. It would be great if they have some photos from set. Sometimes actors or other members take some bts shots. I would love to see Alec Rayme (without hood and mask in his hand) with Amadeus Serafini in courthouse.
1. Debbie Salt - Most likeable personality. The least evil Ghostface.
2. Orchestrator of Trilogy. Scary.
3. and 4. Original ones.
5. Able to hijack car etc.
6. I can't relate to Jill's motive. Jamal has decent motive but given with who he works and because he hated Marcus more that Beth who used him makes him lost for me.
7. Unlikeable one. The worst Ghostface in movies.
8. When I watched the first two seasons, I thought that only killer in the franchise I will hate will be Charlie. Roman: "I had no idea..." that the S3 writers will create even more unlikeable and disgrace of whole franchise. She is ugly (her Goth make-up is horrible) she is unlikeable even before reveal. Her motive is most stupid one. The worst she did is the way she killed Shane. That should never get in Scream. Her quote "Hey, it's not fair". Seriously? How this ugly bitch dare to say what is fair and what not. Her victims didn't got any fair chance. She should got worse death, getting what Shane did (except for drugs, because it would kill her and she wouldn't test other things she did) to feel pain she did, got leg broken, her arm burned alive, and being cut in half like Amir was.
You have a reasonable list. That's cool that you have Piper, Roman and Kieran in the top spots. They were the smartest killers in the franchise. Would you like to ask me questions as to why I rate my list as follows?
1. Kieran Wilcox
2. Roman Bridger and Jill Roberts
3. Piper Shaw
4. Jay Elliot
5. Mickey Altieri
6. Debbie Salt
7. Billy Loomis
9. Stu Macher
10. Charlie Walker
A. I can't wait for it either. I'm excited to see how that happens. Neve Campbell is interested in reprising her character!
B. Hookman is a villain, of course. I feel like he's neutral evil, in the fact that he is a villain in my eyes. He isn't however, a Ghostface/Lakewood Slasher killer, so that's why he's not on my list.
Any questions you'd like to ask as to why I rank the killers this way?
B. True, but he still killed him (technically) or caused his death.
Here is my ranking and why.
1. Kieran Wilcox (Most Brutal killer, highest kill count of a dozen, intelligent, almost got away with it if he didn’t slip up. Also, he is the only killer to live after his reveal, one of the most treacharous killers after Jill)
2. Jill Roberts (She would have gotten away with everything if she actually killed Sidney and she had the best plan, highhly treacharous, intelligent)
3. Roman Bridger (I hate Scream 3 just as much as the next person. But there is no denying his skills. Mastermind if the franchise, had a bulletproof vest and voice changer. Most intelligent killer)
4. Piper Shaw (Great backstory, best backstory of all the killers, intelligent and great motive)
5. Jay Elliot (First black killer, most realistic killer, best motive in the franchise, brutal killer, cool kills)
6. Mickey Altieri (Most diverse kills, best mask killer reveal, motive was farfetched but the most interesting)
7. Debbie Salt (Good motive, most shocking killer reveal, but least amount of kills)
8. Billy Loomis (Just because he was the original doesn’t mean he’s the best, he’s pretty much the average killer, angry and a momma’s boy, dumb too, best killer reveal)
9. Beth (Great character, one of the most evil killers, but acting was cringy as hell and one of the worst motives ever)
10. Stu Macher (Bad motive, peer pressure was a bad motive, but I’m giving him credit for gutting Casey, he was pretty much Billy’s lackey, and was only needed to get the suspicion off of Billy)
11. Charlie Walker (he was whipped around like the family pig, worst motive ever, and he was dumb as a bag of hammers, and was only Jill’s second fiddle)
I decided to post this thread here, and not on the "Scream" wiki, because it's fitting to this wiki. Now, today I finished Luther Thompson's page on this wiki. One day i'll propose him to pure evil. Just wanted you to know.
A personal confession: After seeing "The Man Behind The Mask" for the 3rd time, I came to hate Luther even more. His Hook Man persona, which he used long enough to have rumors about him killing children, is one thing. But how dare her fake tears and sorrow to make Marcus feeling guilty for hating the man who killed his brother and the direct responsible for his tensed relationship with Jamal? People have the right to hurt those who hurt them. Luther went low even for a serial killer. No worse than Beth, but still worse enough.
Please vote for both or one of the 2 transparent png pictures of the infobox of Mortal Kombat 11Kronika the Keeper of Time (including the Lady Kronika-removebg.png picture under the infobox's secondary line named "Crowned" as I personally & honestly recommend).
Just a friendly reminder: Please do not disturb me (whether I'm @ work, or I'm with friends & family, or I'm ill, ect.) ever again unless it's an emergency. No more obsessing over the failed Steward Turnbull character from the 2012 Titanic mini-series.
