Michelle Trachtenberg Interview

By: Sindy

Buffy's little sister is all grown up and making a new name for herself. Michelle Trachtenberg took some time out of her very busy schedule to talk to Sindy about her new movie, figure skating and the difference between movies and television. Check it out!

Sindy: Congratulations on the new movie!
Michelle Trachtenberg: Thanks!

Sindy: How long have you been figure skating?
Michelle Trachtenberg: I hadn't figure skated for years, but I trained for about eight months before filming.

Sindy: What was it like working with Kim Cattrell?
Michelle Trachtenberg: It was a lot of fun working with Kim Cattrell, as well as Joan Cusack. She was great.

Sindy: Which do you prefer - TV or movie work?
Michelle Trachtenberg: I like movies. That's my focus right now.

Sindy: How different is it to work on a movie than on a TV show?
Michelle Trachtenberg: Working on TV, I was under 18 so I was working kid hours which was about 10 and a half hours a day. And then for my very first movie after Buffy - that was EuroTrip - I started working those 22 hour days.

Sindy: Do you see yourself pursuing acting indefinitely or are there any other career paths you are interested in?
Michelle Trachtenberg: No, I don't see myself pursuing anything else cuz I am in love with acting. The only other career I would consider is something in fashion.

Sindy: Do you plan to go to college?
Michelle Trachtenberg: Yeah, I'd like to go to college at some point. I graduated with honors for that reason, I'm just not sure when I'm going to get to go.

Sindy: What has been your favorite acting moment so far?
Michelle Trachtenberg: I really loved working on Six Feet Under.

Sindy: Coolest person you've worked with?
Michelle Trachtenberg: My favorite person to work with so far would be Joan Cusack. She is just such a cool lady.

Sindy: Are you still in touch with your Buffy co-stars?
Michelle Trachtenberg: Yeah, Sarah and I are really close. I've known her for at least 10 years now.

Sindy: Person you've worked with but would like to work with again?
Michelle Trachtenberg: I think I'd have to say Joan Cusack.

    If I had to make simple choice, I'd prefer to live in It's Kind of a Funny Story simply for the people who were held in it. Despite the location setting for the story, I feel as if I could very easily fall for the characters all over again, especially in an even more personal matter. But, of course, if I was  going with a straight up fantasy like everyone seems to be, I'd most likely go with a world like Dorthy Must Die series or Alice in Wonderland. Both being these magical worlds filled with quirky creatures and people, so how could you get bored? Oh, and of course let us not forget the plenty of harrowing fight scenes for freedom from the evil queens and her many brainless followers.

    The Iron Giant was way too advanced in some ways to be a child's movie, yet it was.

    I would live in The Outsiders because it's a classic book. I would love to go on adventures with the gang and read books and watch movies with Ponyboy. (Because I too always believed I was the only one who enjoyed them.) I would love to open up to Johnny because he is such a kind hearted soul.
