Legless Corpse finds out how I was cast in horror film, The Butchers (aka Death Factory overseas), what it was like to work with full bleed-out special effects and what’s next!
Recently we here at the ‘Corpse had a chance to speak with actress/dancer/activist Tonya Kay. Having enjoyed her performance in last year’s The Butchers, we were proud to have the opportunity to chat with her about that role and her other endeavors.
LeglessCorpse: How did you become involved with TheButchers? Conceptually, it’s a pretty cool idea for a horror movie; what were your thoughts when you saw the script?
Tonya Kay: I auditioned for The Butchers, but for a different role than I was cast in. STAR, the rebellious Goth lover, was perfect for me and I’m lucky Debbie Sheridan Casting spotted me and production supported it, even though my hair was very blonde and not stereotypically Goth at all.
I read the script and immediately started researching serial killers. I hadn’t even been offered the role. I was compelled. These deviants are documented and there’s a lot of police reports and detail. As an actor, it’s the research that turns me on about the creative process; that’s when you learn everything about the person, mannerisms, era, styles, beliefs, fashion, music, society – everything. The Butchers research made me a little batty, I confess.
LC: What was it like on set? Any memories that stick out in your mind? Read full Tonya Kay with Legless Corpse for The Butchers interview here.
A horror film my fellow vegans may even relish! This is my next starring role, THE ARTIST, in The Art of Murder feature film presented by Seraph Films. But guess what … I’m producing this time, too! Our trailer is live – please support our work and share with your friends.
The great corsettiers, Violet Vixen, sat me down and asked me about my first corset experience, my first burlesque experience, how I got to Hollywood from my hometown in MI – some pretty serious conversation! This is us just getting started:
1) Who is Tonya Kay?
I’m the Most Dangerous Woman in Hollywood
2) Where did you come from?
The first child spawned consciously by an emotional, artistic dad and an intelligent, driven mom who were very much in love with each other and still are today.
3) Okay, more specifically, where were you born?
I was born in a rural farming community in southern Michigan.
4) How did you find your way to Hollywood from your birthplace?
Lust for meaning through tactile adventure and gumption!

Accomplishment obsessed, delay gratification, unrealized spiritual being.
