LEZLIE DEANE INTERVIEW

Interview Conducted by Stuart D. Monroe

Sometimes in horror, someone comes along who doesn’t make a career out of it that you wish would have. Lezlie Deane is one of those actresses. Between 1988 and 1991, Lezlie worked with Robert Englund on the classic 976-EVIL, the criminally underappreciated Freddy’s Nightmares TV series, and helped send Freddy to hell in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. That’s an insanely solid three-year run.

Lezlie wasn’t just an actress, however. She formed the memorable musical group Fem 2 Fem and garnered serious attention with their message of sexual empowerment and what some deemed a “lipstick lesbian” presentation. Undaunted, Lezlie and the group even appeared in Playboy in December of 1993. Her time in pop made a historical impression, but Lezlie still wasn’t done. Lezlie transitioned into roller derby and became the captain and coach of The Slaughterers of the Dallas Derby Devils. After that? Oh, not much – just starting a “glitterpunk” group called Scary Cherry and the Bang Bangs, who are still out there killing it today.

Though music is her true love, Lezlie cherishes the horror family and was excited as hell to come see everyone at the Frightmare Collectibles Christmas Market. I managed to bug her enough for a face-to-face interview, and she delivered (even turning the tables on me at the end when my material was exhausted)!

Horror DNA TV presents one of horror’s biggest female badasses, Lezlie Deane! Enjoy!

About The Author
Stuart D. Monroe
Staff Writer
Stuart D. Monroe is a man of many faces – father, husband, movie reviewer, published author of short horror, unsuccessful screenwriter (for now), rabid Clemson Tiger, Southern gentleman, and one hell of a model American who goes by the handle "Big Daddy Stu" or "Sir". He's also highly disturbed and wears that fact like a badge of honor. He is a lover of all things horror with a particular taste for the fare of the Italians and the British. He sometimes gets aroused watching the hardcore stuff, but doesn't bother worrying about whether he was a serial killer in a past life as worrying is for the weak. He was raised in the video stores of the '80s and '90s. The movie theater is his cathedral. He worships H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. When he writes, he listens obsessively to either classical music or the works of Goblin to stimulate the neural pathways. His favorite movie is Dawn of the Dead. His favorite book is IT. His favorite TV show is LOST.
