DEBORAH REED IS THE GOBLIN QUEEN OF TROLL 2

DEBORAH REED not only steals her scenes in the cult classic TROLL2, but as Queen of the Goblins, she owns them entirely, allowing her awesome talents to shine into a one woman show: traipsing around her little house of horrors and turning young men into vegetables... Something no other actress could pull off quite the same...

When did you realize the movie was gaining such an immense cult following?

Probably about seven years ago and I was actually working at a congressional office at the time, and someone came in from the Washington office and said, “Oh my gosh,” somebody made a comment, “Oh, she’s the Troll Queen.” And I thought, well, they won’t know what that is. And they said, “You’re kidding. Our whole floor there, of the staff, is called NILBOG.” And I said, “You’re kidding?” I said, “What?” And somebody said, “You gotta go to imdb.” And there were all of these horrible, hilarious, nasty remarks about the movie, and I just thought that was the funniest thing in the world.

Deborah vamps out
I got a kick out of it from the get-go, and… Actually I can go back a little farther… I knew it was bad when I went to pick up a copy, the first time it came out, on video and I was standing there in line with the movie, and somebody next to me glanced over and they said, “Oh, you don’t want to rent that, that is the worst movie you’ve ever seen.” And I just laughed out loud. That was my first funny experience with the movie as far as how bad it was, and how it was perceived.

Fan Painting
Do you remember if that chainsaw you wield on "Arnold" was heavy?

That is something that does stick in mind because I remember I couldn’t even pick that thing up… And they had to literally, just… Right before I did the scene… Just plunk that in my arms… And again, it was one of those one-take things… Throw it in my arms, do the scene, and we’re done.

How was doing that popcorn scene with "Brent" in the RV?

Another Corny Scene
We got into that awkward position and they made me jump into that scene and the popcorn machine broke and they said okay, turn it on, and it starts popping out, and they said, “Don’t move, don’t move”, and there we are, and, till we fixed it, I don’t know how long it took… It could have taken fifteen minutes and so, it was odd, awkward, to say the least… They had some funky machine that they made, and it was just popping it out all over, isn’t that funny? And I don’t remember it exactly, but that’s kind of what they did, and then they got it going again…

Going back to the audition… How did you land the role as Creedence?

I was with an agency, and there were literally hundreds, if not a few thousand… I mean… There were so many. I remember going up to the audition and it was up in Park City in a hotel… And people were just literally lined up and down in the hallways just sitting there waiting, and I just thought, wow this interesting…

And went in. I remember walking into the room, and there were all these Italians in there, and they could barely speak English, and they just said, “Here’s what we want you to do”, and they told me to kind of play out a scene, and it was one of my most memorable, I guess, now, scenes…

Where I’m standing at the stone and I just let it go with every bit of gusto and it was funny because I remember looking out the door and there were all these actors and all these other people just standing there watching as I just kind of went for it, and they turned a fan on me and I did the line, and found out later I got the part.
