#1 How were you cast in the movie? Did you screen-test with Tom and co? 

I auditioned for the role of Angie in Hollywood. I remember walking in and there were many other actresses waiting to go in and read. During my audition, the director, Irvin Kershner asked me, “what would you do if you were attacked in a scene by another character?” Because I am a professional dancer, I stood up and did a high kick to the side and yelled, “Ya!” Mr. Kershner said, “nice…” and then laughed, so I laughed too. It was a fun moment. I always think this was the reason he cast me in the role of Angie.


#2 The film has a lot of deleted scenes. Do you remember anything you filmed that didn't end up in the movie?

The power-hungry character, Cain, was the leader of our criminal gang of “bad guys “. Cain’s primary intention was to protect his “nuke,” distribution network, build his empire and to expand his perverted version of utopia. Cain considered himself a leader as well, as our spiritual guide. I remember a scene with the character, Cain, and my character, Angie, where we were meditating, focusing, and cultivating energy. My feeling was that Angie thought Cain had spiritual insights, which were divinely ordained. He had “the answer”. Angie reveled in the attention from Cain and the fact that a man of power gave her attention.


#3 According to IMDB, for the scene where 'RoboCain' breaks Angie's neck, she was able to twist her neck in an unnatural way that Irvin Kershner and the crew feared she had actually injured herself. Is this true?

Yes, this is true. When Mr. Kershner explained to me the blocking of the scene and how he would like it to be played out, I volunteered to do my own stunt. As a flexible and agile dancer, I was used to doing dance choreography where jumping, sliding, and falling to the ground where normal. For one shot, they had me stand on boxes, hold onto a bar above my head, and then fall into frame. We did quite a few takes. I was somewhat sore by the time we finally achieved the take Kershner was happy with. The scene is quite impactful and disturbing. My family and friends do not like it at all!


#4 The set was apparently chaotic at times. Nancy Allen had a bad time with the movie. Michael Medeiros who played ‘Catzo’ (the Elvis-looking one of the gang) recalls Kershner literally ripping pages from the script every morning, calling it sh*t while Frank Miller (the writer) would look on mournfully. How did you find filming RoboCop ?

I remember being on set and there would be delays because Kershner and Frank were having lengthy discussions about the scenes we were preparing to shoot. The creative process was intense during the filming. Scene revisions were happening on a daily basis. There was a lot of pressure because of the enormous success of the first Robocop film.
A little trivia:
Several times Frank and I had dinner to talk about scenes, my character, and future project ideas. He mentioned to me that he was working on the script for, “Elektra,” and thought that I would be perfect for this exotic dark haired super hero. I liked the idea. However, Jennifer Garner wound up playing the role.


#5 Despite that your character was part of Cain's
  criminal squad and supposedly her lover, we noticed that Angie
  was, sometimes, not as reckless as them, also she was loyal to Cain.
  What was your approach for the role of Angie ?

There was not much information in the script regarding Angie’s back-story. As a result, I had the freedom to create her former life. Kershner was supportive of my ideas. My feeing was that Angie came from a painful childhood and was in search of safe connection with others, a sense of belonging, and unconditional love. Because of her past, she felt betrayed, distrustful, and resentful. This emotional turmoil caused her to lack empathy, be self-centered and harmful to others if need be. Angie was deeply in love with Cain and would do anything to please him. She felt that he had the answer to her happiness. Cain gave her the attention, which she so desperately hungered for. He introduced her to “nuke”, and was able to manipulate her through this addiction. Angie had lost all sense of self. She had become emotionally and chemically dependent in order to cope with the intensity of what she was feeling. Angie’s tragic storyline reflected the journey of a young woman who had lost sight of the fact that the answers to what she was seeking dwelled within her.

I love to hear from fans of Robocop 2.

Thanks for posting this! Interesting read, especially since we rarely hear anything about the sequels.

Great little interview. I always wondered what had happened to the supporting cast of the Robo sequels, nice to know they are willing to talk about the film and their experiences, good or bad. They will likely never get a chance to talk about them on camera for a DVD extra, so this is the next best thing, for us anyway.

Galyn has also been confirmed for the RoboDoc, so you will see her talking more in detail and in person about the movie next year.

I was hopping that they could reach Tom Noonan and Gabriel Damon.

They still might... although wasn't there something about Tom not liking the movie or wanting to talk about it?

Great work here. Even in this brief interview I feel I gained some insight into her character, especially in regards to the deleted meditation scene. It's great to see that not everybody that worked on Robo film hated it! Take a PT for bringing us this Hobb.
