Oh yes. Although, I wouldn’t be quick to call those characters “villains” because I think any villain or person who is doing bad doesn’t think in their minds that they are doing bad. Also I haven’t been a villain in the clear black and white good guy/bad buy scenario, but I have certainly been the conflict.
The most clear case of my villainy is in Dark Woods, which is on netflix for your viewing pleasure, or you can dig around on youtube and find the trailer. I play a young girl who desperately wants to be loved (which, ultimately, I think is the crux of any character I have played and will ever play—think about it) and she seeks that love in a man over twice her age whose wife is in a coma. And she may not be mentally stable. Haha. I suppose my opinion of Alicia Larch is a little more biased and more sympathetic than most. But that’s how it has to be.
My character in Dreamworld isn’t exactly a villain, but she certainly turns out to be the conflict, and she pulls some crazy shiz. But I’ll leave that for you to see. And similarly I play a very confused and obsessive girl in a webseries I did a couple of years ago called Looking for Grace, who starts out sort of a villain but doesn’t end up that way.
Certainly all of my characters are a little “off” in some way, which I find amusing—that I always play the crazies—but also so, so fun. All of the characters I have played in my professional life (I am not counting theatre because, well, i don’t know) probably are making some pretty terrible decisions or are out of touch with reality in some way or another. But that’s okay. I’m not really in touch with reality either.
