Welcome back to another edition of HH365! Today we continue our Haunt Actor Interviews of some very talented and fun loving people who love scaring the crap out of people every Fall. Let us meet Cheeks and continue the trend. Let's Go!
How long have you been Haunting
2009, so about 11 years
What brings you back to haunting
year after year?
for Halloween and scaring people
Where did you start Haunting?
So long story short I used to be a part of the
character program at Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ right out of high school
thanks to my friend Paul, when Fright Fest came around I auditioned to act and
landed a part in one of their trails for Fright Fest.
What is your favorite part of a
night in the Haunt?
minutes before we start when I'm all ready and start getting myself pumped up
for the night to scare people.
What is the worst part of
working in a Haunt?
who think they can act like jerks because they think they are tough when they
are actually just scared.
What is your all-time favorite
scare onto a customer?
scares or creeping them out. I am known for my signature trick which is
sticking a balloon up my nose and pulling it out of my mouth which grosses a
lot of people out and it just makes me so happy!
What is your Favorite Haunted
Attraction outside of your Haunt?
Revenge in Scranton, PA
there for the first time a few years ago and absolutely loved everything about
it! If you've never been there you must go and make sure you find Candy the
clown and tell her Cheeks sent you!
What is your favorite Theme in a
really have an exact favorite because I think all haunts have their own
signature and they really know how to let it shine through.
Do you have further plans with
the Haunted Attraction Industry?
are to continue being a part of it but not sure where. I love acting in a trail
or hayride but I'm getting to the point where my body won't let me do the
things I want it to. I never want to fully leave but maybe something less
physical like actor training or helping people come up with their own
Where does your inspiration for
your Character come from?
worn many character hats but my current character was my husband GRiN's idea,
when we started dating I knew I would end up being a clown but if you want to
know how I got my name then just ask him. Lol
What are you most looking
forward to in the 2020 Haunt Season?
how the industry adjusts to the new normal. Will be allowed within 6 ft of of
customer? Will we all have to wear masks? I'm not really sure where we go from
Do you expect Haunt Season 2020
to be vastly different than other seasons?
but I'm not sure how, this is a very in your bubble kind of thing and I'm not
sure how we do it, and if places open will they have customers.
How long does your make up setup
take per night?
long process, my makeup takes about 20-30 minutes, my hair depend on the day,
sometimes I braid it the night before to get it super crazy and poofy or I just
put in my pig tail extensions, then I have to get dressed and depending on the
weather depends on how many layers I put on which half normally come off
throughout the night because I get so hot running around.
How often do you work on your
character is always changing whether it be adding things to my makeup or
costume or learning new tricks. Who knows what I will come up with next but I'm
thinking a new look will be happening soon.
What do you do for a living
outside of haunting?
I work at a spa as a front desk associate and I
love it! Well that is what we have for you today at HH365! Make sure you keep it here to HH365! Where Every Day Is Haunt Season!
