@dwo34: Hi Julie! Please tell us about how you got involved with the "Hive Mind Movie"
@jc76: I joined Twitter for other reasons than my music and acting but people knew I was Julie Collins from Myspace so music was talked about, Ladd & I started talking and he liked my "Turn This World Around" and said it would be a good song to open the film. So I agreed and the rest is history.
@dwo34: Tell us about your roll in the movie
@jc76: Ladd then asked if I'd read for the part of Hive Mind I recorded the script and got it to him asap thankfully he liked what I did and I landed the role of The Hive mind .
@dwo34: Did you have to do anything special to prepare yourself for the movie?
@jc76: I read the script a few times and familiarized myself with the character, I knew it was almost Borg like but sexy and sassy with a sense of humour, I hope this comes across in my dialogue with Doug Trench, Last Man On Earth!
@dwo34: Tell me about your prior experiences in the entertainment field and how does the Hive Mind Movie compare
@jc76; since I was 3 I've Been performing on stage theatre & TV always auditioning for bands and playing for charity as a Madonna impersonator, films - I was in Hitchhikers, Guide to the Galaxy and Wimbledon and also play lead role in Heather Brothers Production in a film called Bullets Buzz and Mr Fish, i have been an extra in so many things! I love it! (Laughs) I also secured a record deal in USA for 5 years in 2000 but my mother contracted cancer and I wanted to be with her. My deal expired in 2005. I have released my work in iTunes & amazon now & hoping for another good deal.
@dwo34: What was most fun about being a part of this movie?
@jc76: I love the idea that all humans are devoured by me as hive! They will have no choice but to hear me sing Lol,
@dwo34: Your music is so cool, what and who are your inspirations?
@jc76: thanks. I have always sang since I was a small child I love Smokey Robinson & the Beatles Pink Floyd & older Madonna stuff! Karen Carpenter & Barbara Streisand were great singers to emulate.
The songs on my EP is a diary if you like of what I have done, I like to be varied, I'm no one trick pony (smiles and laughs)
@dwo34: What's on the horizon for Julie Collins?
@jc76: I'm recording all the time & looking to tour next year, hoping I land another deal again as I'm ready now more than ever to give it my best shot! I will act more as well if I get the chance, I believe I may work with Ladd again and this time you'll see my face as well as hear my voice.
I am aiming for the top!
@dwo34: How can your fans stay in tune with you?
@jc76: my fans have been very loyal, I have Myspace friends that are like family now, some even have a poster of me on their Walls. You can find me

@dwo34: Thank you so much Julie! You are an awesome performer! Keep rocking!
@jc76: You are so welcome David. I'm a firm believer of going for your dreams , I have been bullied taunted and upset by some people as they think I should get a proper job. Well this is my chosen field, entertainment and I love performing for you all! Never be afraid to dream. Plus I'm a good role model as I'm a good size 12, I love my food, and I have many many stories. I'm going to write a book eventually!
@dwo34: We can't wait. World, meet Julie Collins!
It's December 15, 2009 and I am Bullish on Sacramento and Julie Collins!
