Explains Why
She's An Actor And
Not A Director
By XANDRA HARBET
"Criminal Minds" star Paget Brewster took a leap of faith with her new LGBTQ+ horror/thriller film "Hypochondriac" after she read and loved the script. During an exclusive interview with Looper, Paget Brewster discussed what makes "Hypochondriac" unique in its genre, how the film surprised and exceeded her expectations, and why she prefers acting over directing.
On what drew her to the role and how she thinks "Hypochondriac" sets itself apart from other films in the genre, Brewster said, "I don't know if there are other films [like this one] in the genre. Are there? Is there something you could compare it to?"
After the film turned out better than she could have imagined it, Brewster admitted that directing isn't necessarily her forte, explaining, "This is why I'm not a director. I thought it was a great script, but I didn't know [how] it would turn out. It's an extraordinary film, and I'm really proud of it. I've never seen anything like it.”
