Judd Nelson has been performing for well over 35 years in film and television. He’s most notably known for his word in films such as The Breakfast Club and St Elmo’s Fire, as well as being the voice of Hot Rod in the original Transformers: The Movie animated feature and co-starred with Brooke Shields in Suddenly Susan.
Nelson has an amazing talent of playing bad guys, which would come across as odd for some as he’s one of the nicest person we have ever interviewed.
In his latest film that co-stars Caper Van Dien called, Dead Water, Nelson plays another big baddie known only has McLean, a pirate who tries to take over the yacht and anything else of value, monetary or otherwise.
We spoke to Nelson about being at the mercy of Mother Nature while filming in the middle of the sea, how it’s like being with such a small and talented cast as well as the difficulties it is to shoot on such a tight schedule.
