Mageina won the Best Supporting Actress award at Method Fest for her role in the film Dark Heart.
Mageina (about working on the film Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas): I wanted to be a part of this project because the script was just wonderful. Funny and odd and great. And all the people working on it were so very rad.
Mageina: In Bickford Shmeckler I play Sam, a cool and quirky Dungeons and Dragons gamer and chess aficionado. I'm not sure what I can tell you about the film, but suffice to say she finds a new god in Bickford Shmeckler.
Mageina: It's been over a year since we filmed, but something that comes to mind was a bonding moment for us. We were filming in a real comic book shop, and it was about a hundred and thirty degrees in there with all the lights and everything. We were between takes and trying to take our minds off the heat when we found the comic book porn rack, yeah, so very disturbing and yet equally amusing.
Mageina: I've been working on developing a pilot, about which I am very, very excited.
Mageina: People should check this movie [Bickford Shmeckler] out because it's chock-full of very funny, very cool actors and the story is just great. It's one that I think people will be able to relate to, being lost in life and finding yourself. And man, this movie just has so very much charm.
Mageina: I'm in a play, Ylla, which is part of a collection of four plays Ray Bradbury's Pandemonium Theatre Company has put up entitled, Before Midnight.
Mageina: I make funny little monster and creature pillows, paintings and drawings.
Mageina: I have just filmed a very interesting episode of Crossing Jordan, which should be airing mid December called Death Goes On.
Mageina: I'm learning French and trying to make it to dance classes.
Mageina: Bickford Shmeckler's Cool Ideas is a very cool Indie I was in, with Patrick Fugit and John Cho, that I hope will be making it's way into the world very soon.
Mageina: Scott [Lew, the director of Bickford Shmeckler] was awesome! He was fun and funny and great to work with. I loved that he made our little gaming crew real people, rather than the usual nerdy caricatures.
Mageina: Waterborne is an independent film I did with some amazing people, Jon Gries of Napoleon Dynamite, Ajay Naidu of Office Space, Christopher Masterson of Malcolm in the Middle and a whole host of other wonderful actors. It has been hitting the festival circuit and scoring some accolades.
Mageina: I've been a vegetarian since I was nine years old and have been a supporter of animal rights ever since. I write and read whenever possible.
Mageina: Coming out in May 2006, I have a Hallmark Movie of the Week, In From the Night, with Marcia Gay Harden. It's a terribly gritty part where I play a paranoid schizophrenic, young abusive mom, very intense.
Mageina: I've been reading a lot of stuff on neurology and autism lately, I'm a big fan of Oliver Sacks. Oh, and I've just discovered rock climbing, very cool.
