’s Leo Brady interviews actress Najarra Townsend

The name Najarra Townsend is a hard name to forget, but you won’t forget it after you see her fantastic performance in Mercury in Retrograde. Townsend may be known from such indie horror films as Contracted and Wolf Mother and now she is taking a major shift into deeper dramatic acting. Her character Peggy, starts on a vacation as a bit of a mystery and continues to reveal more about her troubled past as the weekend goes on. The powerful performance is a testament to Townsend’s enormous talent that her work is some of the best I have seen in an independent film in a long time. I was lucky enough to get to talk with Najarra about actors that inspire her, horror movie fans, and Mercury in Retrograde. Watch the interview below:
