The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse star Tinsel Korey’s film Stained has just released its first trailer, and Korey is featured prominently in it. Why? Well, she’s portraying the leading character in the movie, Isabelle, and, as she revealed in an interview with me months back, she doesn’t play the most savory of characters. ‘It’s sort of a psychological thriller. It goes through the life of this girl Isabelle, and she has schizophrenia, and she has all these dimensions … and she has to get past this urge to kill people. So it’s sort of that journey and other stuff that goes on in her head, and I just have to get in her head, and it’s like a whole life cycle. It’s a really great psychological thriller that I’m working on, but it’s an intense topic for sure,’ she explained. –Examiner.com
