“King Knight” just had its World Premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival on August. In support of the premiere, we got a chance to talk to actress Angela Sarafyan about her role as Willow in the film. She also talked about how quickly she came aboard the film, working opposite Matthew Gray Gubler and with director Richard Bates, Jr. for the first time, and getting surprise praise from an actual witch on set. Most interesting was our conversation about the messages of the film, what she took from them, and this film making experience. Please take a few minutes and listen to our conversation below…
