Brooke Lewis – Pop Princess Turned Scream Queen

When most people hear the term Scream Queen, they think D-level actresses in low-budget films that have nothing more to offer than horrific acting and can only use their bodies to make up for their lack of talent.

However, when it comes to Brooke Lewis, that stereotype is thrown out the window. Lewis is a trained stage actress that started in Off-Broadway productions that lead to the big stage. Her transition from stage to screen is what lead her to genre pictures.

“I don’t like that horror and sci-fi films are loaded with gratuitous nudity and gore for the sake of it. Maybe if it was a (Martin) Scorsese film and he asked me to show my naked butt, but I don’t think it’s warranted in an indie film,” said the Philadelphia native.

Lewis’ lack of nudity in her films has not deterred her fans, as the self-professed “C-list celebrity,” has graced the cover of nearly every horror magazine. She believes that women can be empowered and intelligent without sacrificing being sexy.

Her journey to genre films came from the lack of roles for ethnic looking woman in Hollywood. Lewis’ Southern and Eastern European roots initially played against her in cinema only allowing her to be cast as either strippers, hookers or mafia princesses, confessing that those parts were not the ones she left law school for in order to follow her dream.

“I want to be a representation of that smart, hardworking, ambitious woman who retains her integrity in the choices she makes and can also be a classy sex-pot. It’s why I headed towards genre stuff. They allow me to be all those things,” said the vivacious bookworm who holds degrees in Theatre and Rhetoric & Communications.

The petite actress, who’s personality is three times taller than her actual height doesn’t just believe in educations, but hyper-education. Whether it is traditional universities, technical colleges, acting classes or whatever tickles your fancy, she is a proponent of studying and being the best at what you do.

“I’m a proud nerd, I’m a sexy nerd and I rock it!” shouted Lewis, who is also a board certified life coach.

Lewis does a lot of work with anti-bullying campaigns. Opening up about her sensitivity and how hard it is when people criticize her acting, her weight and her looks, Lewis admits having a thicker skin than most but that cyber-bulling can ruin someone’s life.

“When you first see my pictures you would look at me and you would instantly make the assumption that she’s a bimbo, but you peel the onion and that’s the blessing and the curse, but you don’t really know what’s going on. I try to speak out for female empowerment and anti-bullying. Listen you don’t pre-judge. Yeah I can rock a sexy outfit, hair and make up and speak and spar and bring it but the average American kid in the Mid-West in a small town gets cyber-bullied and I feel awful for these kids. Everybody needs to realize a high school kid’s life can be destroyed in less than 5 minutes. Words hurt and you can’t take them back,” teared up Lewis.

All these experiences have lead her to opening up Be You and Be Fearless Life Coach (www.beyouandbefearlesslifecoach.com), where she helps women, teens and LGBT teens and young adults; professing that we are all flawed, we all have issues. Rock it, be proud of who you are and be fearless.

Some of you are wondering, So what’s with the pop princess thing in the title? Well, what most fans don’t know about Lewis is that during her teen years, she was a 1-Hit Wonder in the Freestyle genre. Along with singer Michael Anthony, Lewis sang the club hit, “Get Me Off Your Mind.”

Sadly, the album cover has been lost, but the song has been immortalized on various dance compilations and below:

Lewis’ latest film is by UK Director Neil Johnson, entitled Starship: Rising, where she plays Staris, a fighter pilot committed to the oath she has taken and will die for the federation. Starship: Rising is now available on VOD and DVD.

If there is one thing you can take away from Lewis’ experiences, it would have to be: “I try to commit my life to living with my own integrity. I say, ‘You’re the only one who has to sleep on your pillow and wake up with yourself in the morning.’ If it doesn’t feel good to me in my heart, I’m not going to do it.”

You can follow Brooke Lewis on Twitter @BrookeLewisLA, her personal website BrookeLewis.com, and on IMDB Brooke Lewis. You can also check out her Ms. Vampy webseries Ms. Vampy’s Love Bites. You can also purchase her Freestyle hit “Get Me Off Your Mind” via the compilation Tazmania Freestyle In-motion, Vol. 13 either in MP3 or CD format on Amazon.com
