Lawless Pictures The Darkroom

by Ian Spelling

Battlestar Galactica star Lucy Lawless told SCI FI Wire that she's completed production on an upcoming horror film entitled The Darkroom. Lawless, who plays D'Anna Biers on SCI FI Channel's original series, assays a supporting part in The Darkroom, which was directed by Michael Hurst (the SCI FI original movie House of the Dead 2: Dead Aim) and also features Greg Grunberg (NBC's Heroes).

"This is kind of the role that my role in Boogeyman was supposed to be, but that ended up on the cutting room floor," Lawless said in an interview. "And I wasn't really sure if I could do it, actually, to play somebody who was a complete victim by choice. A lot of victimhood is by choice, I guess. She's an alcoholic, a mother who loves her
child, but is incapable of protecting them or herself. And she's pivotal to her child's redemption. I like those strange little roles."

The low-budget movie centers on a teenage boy who befriends an escapee from a mental institution who sees visions of horrible murders being committed.

"People don't like me to say I'm a character actress," Lawless said. "I got told years ago not to say that. But in my heart of hearts, I am. And I will take a fascinating little role over a big load of nothing any day." The Darkroom will be released direct to DVD on Jan. 2, 2007, by Anchor Bay Entertainment. —Ian Spelling
