Chloe Moretz on exploring Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows

That’s insane, promotion of Dark Shadows still lasts… I have for you new interview with Chloe, mainly related to Dark Shadows ;-) In the following exclusive interview with, Chloe talks about returning to a darker side of cinema, working alongside Burton and what fans can expect from her Carrie White next year. I’m sure Tim Burton is a name that you grew up with, watching his films. You’ve also appeared in a quite a few genre roles. It seems like working with him is, in many ways, a perfect fit.

Chloë Grace Moretz: Yeah, definitely. I’ve always kind of gravitated towards darker roles, but I also just try and find the best projects that I really connect to and that I feel – not just on a personal level – will stretch me as an actor and let me manipulate myself to do cool stuff. It’s kind of crazy that you beat Johnny Depp to playing a vampire.

Chloë Grace Moretz: Oh yeah, you’re right! I did that when I was 12. There you go. I was young. A younger vampire. Does a similiar mentality come into play between acting in Let Me In and Dark Shadows?

Chloë Grace Moretz: That one was a lot darker. Much darker. My vampire was very, very, very, very dark. His vampire has some light areas and kind of funny bits. Mine was not as pretty. In this, she doesn’t want to be part of the family and has a very dark secret. She’s a very special character. Carolyn is this young Woodstock-type girl who’s all about free love and open but, at the same time, she’s dealing with more stuff than anyone can even imagine. She’s not just going through the transitional phase of 15, but she’s dealing with stuff that no one can understand. Carolyn is a big fan of the music of the day. Did you go back and find yourself enjoying any specific ’70s songs?

Chloë Grace Moretz: Oh yeah! Simons and Garfunkel and Cat Stevens and The Carpenters! So many things! You actually get to perform a song with Alice Cooper in this.

Chloë Grace Moretz: I did get to perform with Alice Cooper! That was very special. That was a highlight of my career. When projects come along these days, what is it you’re looking for as far as roles go?

Chloë Grace Moretz: Right now, I’m just thinking about roles that I’d like to see myself in or that I’d like to see made. So far, every role I’ve done I’ve been very proud of. I choose roles that will stretch me emotionally and physically as an actor. Right now it’s Carrie. I start that June 1st. I can’t really say much about it, but keep an eye out. I’m doing a lot of pre-production. You can check out Kimberly Peirce’s Facebook page. She’s keeping everyone updated on what I’m doing.
