Hi! My name is Najarra Townsend. I’m an actress who has been in the business since I was a kid. You may recognize me from films such as ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW, CONTRACTED and most recently THE STYLIST.
What is it that attracts you the horror genre for your chosen field of creative work?
My love for the horror genre really grew when I realized what a incredible community the genre has. I’ve always been a fan of horror films but once I started making them and meeting the people who continually work in them along with the fans who love them, I really became hooked. Making a horror movie is always exciting because of the filming process with all the heightened emotions and special effects but also, knowing that once the film is released, there is a community who will love it just as much as you loved making it.
