Colleen Bement: I love your character of Alicia Banes on this season’s “Supernatural.” I thought you were pretty badass in ‘Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox.’ What can you share with my avid SPN fans about life on the set?
Kara Royster: This episode fans really dives into the story of the twins and their mom and understand the makeup of the family. Kendrick and I had such a blast filming the last episode and were so excited to be returning, especially after reading the powerful script. This is a very intense episode and everyone really brought it! The cast and crew really love the show and are excited to be creating something awesome for the fans
CB: Tell your fans about your experience on “Pretty Little Liars?”
KR: Being on “Pretty Little Liars” was an absolute dream come true. I was a fan of the show for so many years so getting to jump into the story made me want to pinch myself. Then, as an actor, getting on set with a cast and crew who is so passionate about what they were creating, that’s when I knew I was dreaming haha. Also, to be part of a show run by such strong and amazing women on and off screen was so inspiring. The drive of the show really stems from the fans; their dedication to these characters is what made the cast and crew so enthusiastic to create something amazing. I love Yvonne Phillips! She is so different from the “new love interests” we see a lot in TV, she is strong, confident and elegant (not to mention stylish), she will forever hold a special place in my heart.
CB: May I say that you’re just stunning! I read that you’re also a makeup artist. My readers would love to learn a make-up secret or two.
KR: Aww shucks! Thanks! Yes, I have been stealing my mom’s make-up since I could remember. I got to kind of sub major in makeup in high school, and then later had the opportunity to work on music videos and photo shoots. My top three tips are, 1: Always moisturize! It seems simple but makes a huge difference 2: Blend, blend, blend (then blend some more with a beauty blender) 3: Don’t be afraid to mix foundations to get that perfect shade and perfect finish.
CB: To get to know a little better, let me fire off quick few quick answer questions:
1.) Top two bands on your Spotify?
Beyoncé + Erika Jayne
2.) Morning person or night owl?
3.) Top two countries to visit on your bucket list?
4.) Favorite superhero?
Spider-Man is my favorite superhero. Actually, to be honest I prefer super villains, like Harley Quinn
