How old are you?

How did you come up with the concept for the movie?
It was Frank Major’s idea. He loves these kind of dark and sinister locations and macabre sexual situations.

Which is your favorite scene from the movie & why?
Definitely the 5 lesbian orgy. It was so hot and sensual and the girls are very sexy and beautiful, I really wanted to join in, but it was for girls only.

What was the most challenging thing about shooting Downward Spiral?
Challenging? Nothing is a challenge if you enjoy your work.

Do you remember any funny moments for the shooting?
We had lots of fun shooting the scene with Simony Diamond.
The guys were making jokes all the time and she couldn’t stop laughing. And Zenza and Ram’s dialogs had the crew laughing too as it was all total improvisation.

The cinematography is superb in the movie, how did you ensure the movie kept the excellent quality standards throughout the shooting?
We had a big budget for the movie and we made sure that we spent it on a superb crew, excellent lighting to ensure we could shoot with Hollywood movie values and of course we had a spectacular cast. We carried out 6 months planning before shooting the movie to ensure everything would turn out perfect and be a superb Blockbuster for Private.

What kind of sex turns you on?
Passionate sex. I love to see girls having fun.
