In American Mary, the new film from Jen and Sylvia Soska, Tristan Risk proves herself to be a breakout star with her portrayal of Beatress, the bubbly voiced stripper surgically modified to look like Betty Boop. Working beneath layers of facial prosthetics, Risk uses only her soulful eyes and dancer's body to convey a world of emotion. It's a subtle performance that declares the arrival of a talent to be reckoned with.

Last Halloween, I gathered the Soskas' spooky reminiscences during Mary preproduction, but this year production is finished, so I tracked down the Vancouver-based burlesque queen known as Little Miss Risk to ask about her Halloween memories. Much like the enchanting Beatress, she was amusingly direct and did not disappoint.

We're here to talk about Halloween, Ms. Risk. Tristan. Are you an All Hallows' Eve enthusiast?

One hundred percent all the way! Every drop in my bloodstream flows for Halloween. »
