Interview with Kristos Andrew and Mike Manning of “The Bay” on Prime, Peacock and Tubi by Thane 3/9/23

It was great to interview Mike and Kristos from the show “The Bay.” They both have Emmys because of this series.

Mike’s audio was a bit patchy at times. He meant Edinburgh when talking about Scotland.

Regarding the crying scene he’s talking about in the shower – he didn’t know if his husband was dead or alive.

First, the interview with Kristos:

Interview with Mike Manning of the film “The Way Out” by Thane 1/16/23

It was great to catch up with Mike Manning about a new thriller he appears in. His TV credits include “This Is Us” and “Days Of Our Lives“. If you like horror/thriller movies, then he’s worth a follow.

From writer/director Barry Jay, and starring Jonny Beauchamp (“Penny Dreadful”), Emmy winner Mike Manning (“Teen Wolf”, “This is Us”), Ashleigh Murray (“Riverdale”), and Sherri Shepherd (“Life is Perfect”), an unnerving and riveting thriller from Terror Films hitting digital February 10, 2023.

Alex is an aspiring singer/songwriter, a drug addict who’s been damaged from childhood abuse. After the death of his father and inheriting the family home, he takes in a roommate, a fighter, who takes Alex under his wing, teaching him how to fight back and stand up to abusers. But soon this leads Alex down a dark path that threatens his sobriety and his life.

“I disagree”, says Barry Jay (Killer Therapy, The Chosen). “Absence doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder. Sometimes it gives you the time and distance to gain the clarity to see how badly you were mistreated and the courage to finally do something about it. That was me – I moved out of an abusive household when I was 20 years old. I had been abused until after I was a senior in high school. Severely underweight, shut down, feared everyone and everything and with good reason. Sobriety was a gift that helped me heal through all of that, a day at a time and that is the inspiration for THE WAY OUT.

My hope is to send a message to the abuser and the abused. To the abuser, I hope to show the ripple effect of their heinous actions, and how it can boomerang back to them, rightfully destroying their lives. To the abused, I hope to show there is hope, hope for better days, ability to find the self-esteem and strength to create boundaries, how forgiveness can be the thing that helps you finally drop the rock so you can create a better new and healthy life.”

THE WAY OUT is on digital February 10, 2023 worldwide from Terror Films.

Interview with director Jeremiah Kipp and stars August Maturo and Mike Manning of the film”Slapface” by Suzanne 7/26/22

Mike Manning as Charlie Dale in "Days of Our Lives"This was a fun interview! I enjoyed this horror movie, “Slapface,” that Kipp wrote and directed, and Kipp and Manning produced, and Manning and Maturo starred in.  I knew Manning from “Days of Our Lives,” where he played Charlie Dale (see left photo), and he was great in both that show and this movie. I was sad that they turned him into a villain almost immediately in Days. He has a lot more layers in the movie and shows his acting ability very well. He’s definitely more than just a pretty face and a nice guy.  Maturo is an amazing young actor. I’m sure we’ll see more of them both. Please enjoy this fun interview!
