The indie drama Crazy Eyes, from co-writer/director Adam Sherman, follows Zach (Lukas Haas), one of those glamorous L.A. types with too much money and too much time on his hands. With a steady stream of beautiful woman, in and out of his posh home in the hills, he forgoes spending time with his five-year-old son to keep the party going. But then, he meets a girl he calls “Crazy Eyes” (Madeline Zima) and, when she refuses his advances, he decides that he wants her above all others.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Madeline Zima (Californication) talked about auditioning for this role, why she wanted to play this character, the challenges in playing someone so messed up, and collaborating with her director (Adam Sherman) and co-star (Lukas Haas). She also talked about how happy she is to continue to do acting roles, that she’s currently auditioning to find her next job, having to constantly prove herself, and how great it is to have sisters that are also actresses because they understand what this business can be like. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
