Christopher Cummings
(Vampire)

Where are you from?

I come from a galaxy far far away, I mean Scotland. :~)

Do you have much acting and/or production (stage or TV) experience? What was your acting debut, and how old were you?

When I was about 10 years old I was the lead in Jack and the Beanstalk and I sung throughout my appearance. The only things I didn't like about it was that I had to wear red and green tights, bleughh!! And I have recently finished appearing as an extra in Robert Duvall's new football flick, "A Shot to Glory", where I was an avid fan of the fictional team in the movie. I've also designed sets for theatre plays in the past and helped with production.

How did you get involved in Fluffy?

I got involved through Steven McCombe, as I had been hearing about the films he and Henry and the gang had done in the past, I made a few teaser posters for The Jedi Who Loved Me, and it just went from there. And everyone I met in London were fantastico people!

Why did you audition for the part of Vampire Extra?

Because it was the only one available for me.

Are you a Buffy fan?

I love watching Buffy and have watched it from the start, and I still like watching the original film with Luke Perry, and David Arquette.

What have you gained from your involvement in Fluffy?

Happiness, fangs, gothic wardrobe, and above all enjoyment from working with the great crew!

Do you have any claims to fame? (E.g. meeting famous people, appearances on TV / stage etc.)

I've appeared on Border News a few times promoting the Scottish parliament with young people, and I've also met Gavin Rossdale from a rock band called Bush.

Any hobbies / obsessions? (Things you enjoy doing)

I love song writing and doing artwork, I love my Caffreys and Jack Daniels, but most of all I love playing my guitar.

Any amusing acting / production cockups (faux pas) - things going wrong on stage etc.?

When I appeared in pantomime for the 1st time, I thought it was just a warm up practice session with no audience, and then I walked out of the curtain and had a heart attack when I saw a concert hall of people staring at me.

Any bizarre talents?

I can play guitar with my feet and I have very flexible and expressionate eyebrows.

Any amusing / mad stories about things you've done, or have happened to you?

I once woke up in a middle of a farmerís field covered in nothing but shaving foam and wearing women's underwear, what can I say I had a good night, hehe. And I once went skinny dipping down the river with a few friends and my clothes got washed away downstream.

Any achievements you'd like to mention?

I was in Fluffy, yeah baby yeah!

Any annoying habits? Are there any things that you say a lot?

I feel I use the F word a little too much sometimes, even when the phone rings.

Favourite films?

The Crow, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, This Year's Love and My Own Private Idaho.

Favourite director(s) + actor(s) + actress(es)?

Favourite director - Tim Burton. Favourite actor - Ewan McGregor. Favourite actress - Sigourney Weaver.

If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be?

I'd love to meet Jim Morrison or Brandon Lee.

What's your favourite fluffy thing?

My favourite fluffy thing is my stuffed Moose my girlfriend bought me. I love it to bits.
