We’re being blessed with plenty new Rose content today! Allen Foster for Entertaining Options interviewed Rose about ‘Brampton’s Own’ recently, and you can now read the full article with her quotes below. And I’ll stress it one more time: if you haven’t purchased your own copy of the film yet, make sure to do so – Rose killed it! It’s now available on Amazon, iTunes, GooglePlay, DIRECTV, Dish Network, and other popular on-demand services.

Entertaining Options | Rose McIver is from a small beach town located just west of Auckland, New Zealand. She moved to the other side of the world to pursue her acting career. Between Season 3 and Season 4 of The CW’s iZombie, writer/director Michael Doneger (The Escort, This Thing With Sarah) asked Rose if she’d like to appear in a film called Brampton’s Own. The story follows a ballplayer who returns home after spending 12 years pursuing his dream of making it to the big leagues.

Brampton’s Own opened in select theaters on October 19. It is also available at Amazon, iTunes, GooglePlay, DIRECTV, Dish Network, and other popular on-demand services.

“The idea of ambition and balancing family and love and the people who matter to you is a really relevant topic for me,” Rose told Entertaining Options, “so the material connected quite well. The story is universal, it doesn’t matter where you are from, when you have chosen a career as your priority for a stretch of time, there are costs to pay.”

Dustin Kimmel, played by Alex Russell (Chronicle, Only The Brave), is the local sports hero, one of Brampton’s own. When he returns home after over a decade of minor league baseball, he feels out of place – everyone else has moved on, but for him, time has stood still. His ex-girlfriend, Rachel Kinley, played by Rose, is engaged to Eddie (Hart of Dixie, Speed Racer), the town’s most eligible bachelor.

“For some artists, your work is your baby. When you make it to the end of your life and you look back, it’s your work that will be your legacy not your children,” Rose noted. “I don’t want that to be myself at all, but playing ball is what gives Dustin great happiness.”

Besides looking at the sacrifices people make to chase a dream, the film explores the power of family, the importance of home, and making the choice to hold on or let go.

At a pivotal part in the story, Rachel is confronted with information that makes her question her life and her engagement to Eddie. She behaves in a way that, on the surface, seems selfish. But Rose defended her character’s actions.

Since Rose is currently on the set of iZombie, where they are busy filming the fifth season of the show, she hasn’t been able to do a lot of press for the newly released “Brampton’s Own” (check out our previous post for screen captures and information!). However, Fred Topel from Monsters & Critics got to do an exclusive Q&A with her over the phone, and they have now shared the full interview! She talks about the film, iZombie, her time on Xena and Legends of The Seeker, how much she appreciate her fans on social media and much more. Check it out below!

Rose McIver first graced American television sets in episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. More recently she’s been on Master of Sex, Once Upon a Time and the lead of iZombie.

McIver got on the phone from the set of iZombie’s final season in Vancouver to talk about her new movie, Brampton’s Own, in theaters this weekend. Alex Russell stars as Dustin, a minor league baseball player who left his home town of Brampton behind.

When Dustin comes back to Brampton, his ex-girlfriend Rachel (McIver) is engaged to someone else. The two reconnect and make each other question what they really want out of life.

Brampton’s Own is in theaters and VOD services now. Since I’ve seen the film, McIver and I did discuss some spoilers about the movie, so if you’re already a Rose McIver fan you may want to just watch the film before you read this.

Monsters and Critics: Is that you singing in Brampton’s Own?

Rose McIver: No, unfortunately it’s not. It was hoping to be but I was on something else at that time, so I couldn’t get to the ADR session. I was very frustrated about that. I would love to sing but she did such a great job, the girl who did it.

M&C: Do you ever long for the smalltown life vs. Hollywood?

RM: Very much so. I’m from a small town. I’m from a little beach town outside of Aukland in New Zealand. So there’s a lot of me that connects to this film and the distance from family and from your old high school friends and what you knew. I moved to the other side of the world, but at the same time, I’m also aware of how much of that is actually nostalgia rather than the reality of what it would be like if you moved home. For me, these things were all things that I think about a lot. I think it is a very massive challenge to navigate as you move to a big city and try to pursue your dreams, is how to not overlook the people that you love and the things that will be there ultimately in the end.

M&C: That’s a good point that there’s a large nostalgia component. How important is it to move on and move forward, and balance that with looking back?

RM: I have a friend who says people and things are in your life for a reason to cease in their own lifetime. I think sometimes we feel when something has ended, part of the grief is thinking they never existed to begin with. You kind of let it go like it died. It’s actually allowed to have still had the impact that it had at that time. I think their relationship, even though over the course of this film it doesn’t work out, I think it doesn’t detract from the fact that they had something very special at a particular moment. That can still live on.

M&C: Was it refreshing that Rachel was right, she had a sense that Dustin would always choose baseball and she had to be responsible for her own desires?

RM: Yeah. I think that she wanted so badly obviously for it to work out, but you can’t control anybody else’s decisions. She had made an immediate kind of reactionary response and got engaged to the wrong person. So I’m glad that I think she does have a huge amount of growth in the film where she learns that that’s a band aid solution. That wasn’t working either. I hope for her that ultimately at the end of the story, she goes forward knowing that she’s not going to be able to change anybody else and she just has to stay open to the things that land in her life that are right for her. She can see that this wasn’t that thing at this present time. I’m impressed that she’s able to let that go. I know a lot of people who don’t and suffer a lot of pain because of it.

M&C: Do you get offered a lot of romantic comedies where it is about a woman who’s just looking for a man?

RM: Yeah, most of the time. So to me the fact that she actively decides to let this go was very important because I think it’s very easy to find material where the male character’s narrative is just projected onto the women around him. I think this was one where she has her own growth. She has her own vulnerability and story that changes. That was really important.

M&C: Or even where it’s a female protagonist but it’s all about finding a boyfriend or a husband. Those can be fun but it’s nice that there’s a movie like Brampton’s Own too.

RM: Yeah, exactly. I think that we’ve seen enough of the same story told the same way that it’s fun when it’s subverted or reimagined. In this particular instance, just being able to be another character in the story who isn’t just a prop for his own emotional journey is really fantastic.

M&C: How hard has it been to find movies that fit in your hiatus?

RM: Well, it’s not going to be anymore. I finish iZombie in February. Then I’m open to whatever happens next. It has been a bit of a game of trying to work out dates. Also, I like to spend time back in New Zealand when I’m not shooting so this one just came. It was very serendipitous. It was at the right time with the right people. Michael Doneger had so much heart and had a massive team of people who were going to really work because they loved the story, because they loved the simplicity and the lack of big shock factor/blockbuster vibes. That wasn’t what he was going for. It’s a small intimate story that you could watch and connect to. It came up just at the right time. He was such a lovely human so it just worked out great.

M&C: How did the film come your way?

RM: Michael approached me. I guess he knew some of my work and knew Alex Russell, and just pulled us together. It was very fast. We were able to meet up and get to know each other a little bit, but as is the nature of these films, it’s kind of go, go, go and the discoveries happen on camera. We met up and got to know each other. We went for a couple of coffees and to hang out a bit. Then we were shooting. It was great.

M&C: Is there a specific Brampton accent you were doing?

RM: No, no. I think what’s great about the film is it’s not localized. I felt like anybody can watch the film and feel like it’s a small town that they’ve come from. We tried to steer away from that.

M&C: Is it nice to play roles where you have natural hair and makeup?

RM: [Laughs] It is. It’s a shorter time in the chair. It was fun. I really liked it. I managed to steal a pair of jeans afterwards. They were really close to how I like to dress anyway. It was not too much of a distance to leap into a character.

M&C: What kind of jeans were they that you wanted to take them home?

RM: I don’t even know the brand. They had to cut the brand off because you’re not allowed to market anything.

M&C: What sort of fun did you and the cast and crew get up to off camera?

RM: We were filming in an ice cream store so that was just dangerous. There was lots of ice cream. There was a beautiful outdoor area with lights everywhere. You’re doing night shoots somewhere and there’s gorgeous lights, it almost feels like you’re at a bizarre party. It was just like a very mellow, nice social hangout, very, very social. Jean Smart was such a trooper. We got to hang out and have a glass of wine afterwards, it was lovely.

M&C: What town were you filming in?

RM: We were in Los Angeles. It couldn’t have been more convenient. It was down the street from home.

M&C: That’s so unusual to film movies in L.A.

RM: Yeah, yeah, crazy but it worked out. They did a great job of finding good locations in Los Angeles that were available. It was wonderful.

M&C: What sort of things are you looking for after iZombie?

RM: I’m not sure. I just did a musical back in New Zealand that will be coming out in February so I’m thinking about the music side of things again a little bit too. I’m just open.

M&C: Has it been bittersweet filming the final season of iZombie?

RM: Yeah, it has been. It’s great that we know it’s ending so we can tie up loose ends, but I love this cast and crew so much. I will miss them very, very much. Yeah, we’re halfway through today actually, halfway through the season.

M&C: Can it ultimately have a happy ending for Liv?

RM: Yes, for sure. I think you make your own happy endings. I think she’s got some great people in her life. I don’t know exactly how it’s being worked out but I can see where they’re heading. I’m a big champion of it. I think it will be a beautiful outcome.

M&C: Does the iZombie fan base come and support you for other projects like Brampton’s Own?

RM: Yeah, I’ve been so lucky. There’s a couple of really amazing social media accounts, these fan accounts that have just been incredibly supportive of my career. They’ve gone back through the archives and found films that I did back in the day. They always alert people to what’s coming out. They’ve just been amazing and they’ve supportive Brampton’s. That means a lot. It’s an independent film and you really appreciate people talking about it. It’s a word of mouth kind of story. It feels to me like the kind of film you watch at home on a date night while the kids are asleep. It’s not a film you have to see in the theater. You can really make a night of it and get the value of the film in your living room. It’s the kind of thing where when these fan accounts talk about the show, I know that really helps. It helps get the message out and helps people see it, so I’m very appreciative.

M&C: Do you ever go back and watch your old Xena episodes?

RM: I haven’t. Sometimes I’ve seen clips of them. New Zealand was like the sword and sandals capital. We had all of those shows shooting there. Any New Zealand actor that ends up having a career internationally, you’ll be able to dig through and find them on Spartacus or Legend of the Seeker which is one I did.

Hello Rose fans! Last month, Shout!Takes shared an interview they did with Rose about “Power Rangers”. As you all know, Rose played Summer Landsdown (Ranger Yellow) in the 17th season of the show called “Power Rangers R.P.M”. It’s nice to hear her talk about some of her older projects, as we rarely got proper interviews with Rose back in those days! She talks about her character, the audition process, her training for the part and more. Listen to the interview below.

This week saw the fourth season debut of iZombie, but before she was sautéing brains, Rose McIver was kicking butt as Summer Landsdown in Power Rangers RPM. In this episode of Shout!Takes, the down-to-earth star talked about her character, working on the hit franchise in her native country New Zealand, and the loving Power Rangers fans. Listen below, on iTunes, Spotify, or your favorite podcast provider.

As you all know, Rose is an ambassador for Emirates (you can read all about her work for them at our page here). NZ Herald have done a cute little interview with her about her holiday experiences, which you can read below!

NZ Herald | Rose McIver is an ambassador for Emirates.

What was your greatest holiday?
Piha. Pretty much every summer growing up — often staying at the Peach family bach. So many wonderful memories.

And the worst? Well it was still a brilliant holiday, but my poor mum broke her shoulder visiting me in Canada last Christmas. That was a little rough.

If we bump into you on holiday, what are you most likely to be doing? Slip, slop, slapping. Eating a Nice Block. Having a swim in the surf, but only ever waist deep — watching out for those rips.

If we could teleport you to one place in New Zealand for a week-long holiday, where would it be? God, we are spoilt for choice back home but today I’ll say Hahei.

How about for a dream holiday internationally? I’m very keen to see Morocco. I love the food and the design I’ve seen from there, and would love to meet the people behind them.

What’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever done when travelling? I left my passport in the toilets in Dubai when I was 18. I was on the way to Europe. An incredible woman who was cleaning the bathroom saved the day and raced it to the gate just in time for me to board (not in time to prevent my first-time-solo-traveller panic attack).

Aisle seat or window seat? Window. More leaning options.

Complete this sentence: I can’t travel without … Mosquito repellent and sunscreen. I am a heavy doser and really dread the imminent studies coming out showing what all the chemicals do to us.

While we eagerly await season 4 of our favorite show, articles teasing the upcoming season is starting to trickle in. Below you can read an iZombie article ComicBookDC recently posted, where they share parts of their interview with Rose from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con!

Comicbook – In an increasingly polarizing world, iZombie star Rose McIver says she is proud of being part of a show that uses a fantastical world of sentient zombies to comment on the current political environment without being condescending or cruel.

Following the end of season 3, zombies have been revealed to the world, with Seattle being the zombie capital of the United States and a call out for brains from around the country to satisfy the needs of its population. While Seattle has a democratically-elected mayor (also a zombie), its primary authority will be Chase Graves, the corporate executive and military contractor played by Jason Dohring.

“The show has hinged on [zombies] being a secret for so long that [going forward], how was that going to transpire? What happens season 4?” McIver said during a recent conversation with ComicBook.com, suggesting that life under Chase Graves, who is the de facto leader of Seattle’s zombies, is not in Liv’s comort zone at all.

“It’s sort of an authoritarian dictatorship, which obviously she doesn’t respond to, but she also knows that zombies and humans co-existing is an incredible stretch,” McIver added. “How do we find a way that makes everybody feel safe, that makes nobody feel marginalized? It’s so on-point politically right now, it’s something I’m really proud to be a part of that in a comedy, zombie, fun show, still kind of is making comment about how we treat other and how we respond to having to coexist and tolerate and understand each other’s opinions.”

“We’re going to pick up next season three months later, and the United States has walled off Seattle like it’s West Berlin,” showrunner Rob Thomas previously told ComicBook.com. “Chase is hanging on by a very thin thread; it’s like every day is the Cuban missile crisis. Brains are coming in, but they aren’t getting as many as they expected, and zombies are hungry. In fact, the opening sequence in season four is going to follow a brain from the moment a man dies somewhere in Texas to the moment it reaches the brain tube and is ingested by a Seattle zombie. In fact, it’s even going to start earlier than that. We’re going to see a commercial on TV; we want to get someone like Laura Linney making a commercial pleading for the people of the United States to sign their brain donor card.”

While there is no firm premiere date yet for season 4, iZombie will return in early 2018 on The CW. The first three seasons are currently available on Netflix.

During San Diego Comic-Con last week, Rose did a bunch of interviews for different news outlets and magazines. Sioux City Journal have put together some of the information she shared at the convention into a great little article – which you can now read below.

Source | Some actresses have the luxury of preparation. Rose McIver often settles for watching YouTube videos and rehearsing on camera before committing.

It’s just part of her ever-changing world as a zombie on “iZombie.” In the series, McIver’s character, a zombified medical examiner, has to snack on others’ brains in order to stay alive. In the process, she takes on the brain’s personality. And, yes, McIver says, it can be a challenge. In the course of the last season, which just ended, the New Zealand native assumed the mannerisms of everyone from a conspiracy theorist to a dominatrix. “It happens so quickly, you don’t get much prep time,” she says. “I wish I had that leisure. Usually, I email strangers after I hear what I’m going to be doing.”

To approximate the zombie look, McIver has four wigs in rotation. “I have names for all of them,” she says with a smile. “Shirley was a very good one – moody at the start but we got her in line.”

Because she has such a host of identities, McIver says it’s not uncommon for people to give her strange looks. “A lot of people think I went to high school with them,” she says. “I assume it’s that they’ve come across the show.”

One of a growing number of New Zealand performers working in American television shows, McIver says plenty of her friends got involved in the business when New Zealand was a hotbed for American film production. Tax benefits made it ideal; roles in big features like “Lord of the Rings” made it marketable.

Now 28, McIver got her break in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of “The Lovely Bones.” That led to more film and television work and a place in Hollywood. Mastering an American accent was key, she says. “If you can do that, it’s fair game. You’ve done the training and done the hard work and you have what it takes.” Sustaining a career in New Zealand is almost impossible because the film industry is so small. As a result, McIver became so busy in the United States and Canada she didn’t get back for a year and a half. “I was hung out to dry by my family,” she says with a smile. “Now I get back at least twice a year.” So they wouldn’t forget her, she gave her niece and nephew “iZombie” action figures – a strange by-product of a foreign career.

“The reason I love my job so much is I get to play the variety and do a little of everything,” McIver says. “But I’m genuinely terrified knowing what brains I might not have a clue how to perform.” Sometimes, there are fringe benefits. When she was under the effects of a country music brain, McIver rekindled her love for the guitar. “My brother is a talented guitarist. This got me to pick it up again and it was inspiring – stress relieving. There are all sorts of things I’d never explore if it weren’t for this show.”

Before “iZombie” began, writers gave McIver a list of “brains” they were interesting in picking. “You are allowed to veto one.” She chose the “cat lady” brain because “I’m a dog person. They thought it would be a great prank to play on me where I was interacting with, like, seven cats in a bedroom.”

Other brains have enabled her to draw on friends, family and co-workers. A “father-daughter” combo let her play two extremes at once. The trick, she says, is to make people care about her character, no matter what transformation she’s going through.

Renewed for a fourth season, “iZombie” also has prompted fans to wonder what those television brains taste like.

“The brains are made out of gelatin – like coconut agar gelatin,” McIver says. “They’re disgusting. They’re drowned in corn syrup and whatever kind of makes it look good at the time. They’ve gone above and beyond to try to make them delicious.

“In the first season, there was one that was like a milkshake. I had to chug it and you’ can’t spit that. They’re not great but, come on. I get to play a zombie and get through this great show. It’s like, ‘What a self-indulgent problem.’”

Source | Liv (Rose McIver) will lead Team Z with more confidence in Season 3 of “iZombie.”

During an interview at the set of the CW series in Vancouver, McIver told Screener that Liv will be able to head the team much better this season because everyone now knows her secret.

“I think Liv has been able to take on a leadership role with this group of people, primarily because now they all show [support],” McIver said. “I think you’re able to lead with much more confidence when you know that the people who you’re working with are all well-informed, they’re all on your team.”

As fans know, Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) was the last main character to discover that Liv is a zombie, and now that the secret is out, viewers could expect a different dynamic between the two when the new season kicks off next week.

“They’re on the same page. This is the first time in three seasons … that they’ve been on the same page, so it definitely brings them closer together,” Goodwin said. “It’s been fun and interesting to play.”

But Goodwin pointed out that Clive will need some time to completely wrap his head around the idea that there are actually zombies living among humans. “He’s shocked,” Goodwin said of Clive’s reaction to the big reveal in a featurette for Season 3 of the series. “Zombies don’t exist in the world, and now they do. So he’s still trying to process all of this.”

Meanwhile, according to the overview for the whole season, Liv and Clive investigate the murder of a zombie family that may just set off an all-out war between zombies and humans.

“iZombie” Season 3, episode 1, titled “Heaven Just Got a Little Smoother,” airs on Tuesday, April 4 at 9 p.m. EST on The CW.

Hello Rose fans! Earlier today, a new interview of Rose was published on NZ Herald, as a part of a series called “Sitting Room Only”. It’s a very different and fun interview, so make sure you check it out. You can do so by clicking the still image below, and screen captures will be added to the gallery as soon as possible.

Sitting Room Only is a new interview series airing on nzherald.co.nz, directed by Hannah Marshall and produced by Rose’s bestfriend and past co-star Fleur Saville. The intimate series will feature some of New Zealand’s best-known actors and musicians talking about life in Los Angeles and their journey to success. And as one of the most talked about kiwis at the moment, of course our Rose had to be included!

Rose McIver: My early acting was ‘horrific’

iZombie star Rose McIver has been acting since the age of two – featuring in everything from Shortland Street and Power Rangers to feature films like The Piano and The Lovely Bones.

But while film-makers were quick to embrace her young talent, the 26-year-old Kiwi wasn’t so sold on her early performances.

“I was told by somebody that I was prodigious with accents and I was so good at them. I went back and watched a clip… I’m horrific. I’m terrible,” she says in the latest episode of Sitting Room Only.

The actress, who now lives in LA, says people are often quick to assume her career was driven by her parents, but nothing is further from the truth.

“My mum was really hesitant. It was never a focus in our family.

“It was like other people did tennis or singing. I was just allowed to be in a movie.”

McIver’s most recent television credits include Once Upon a Time, Masters of Sex and Play It Again, Dick.

Source | Spending recent years toying with morbid humour, New Zealand iZombie lead and Oz Comic-Con guest Rose McIver tells Daniel Cribb why it’s important to laugh when bad things happen.

“I’m currently lying on my parents’ sofa in Auckland,” McIver begins from her hometown. “I’m home visiting for a week and have regressed to behaving like a difficult teenager and demanding coffee from dad and lounging around,” she laughs.

It’s the first time she’s been home for a full week in several years, with an increasingly busy schedule that’s seen stints on show like Once Upon A Time and Masters Of Sex, as well as playing Liv Moore on The CW hit iZombie, so some down time is well earned, especially considering McIver put the final touches on a screenplay a week earlier. “I’m very excited — it’s with a director who actually lives in Australia now, Peter Salmon so it’s sitting in his inbox, waiting to be read,” she reveals.

“Some of the funniest things are borne out of situations that could be quite traumatic or quite morbid and being able to see the light and the dark in those situations is a skill set.”

“It’s a fairly different tone to iZombie; it’s very dark, gritty — there’s definitely some comedic elements, but I wouldn’t call it a comedy. It’s something that I’ve written as a writer, it’s not something for me to act in. It’s been a really good exercise, I hope it gets to come to life soon.”

It could have been quite easy for iZombie to take a similar dark path, with the inevitable element of death a prerequisite for the undead supernatural creature the show utilises, but McIver doesn’t see it as a zombie show, and after only a few episodes it’s easy to see why; you can almost forget that the lead is a zombie with everything else that’s going on. “It’s about a girl who went through an identity crisis and is trying to make sense of the way her life is unfolding and the way her relationships are changing,” McIver explains. “So it’s very relationship and character driven; I think that’s what keep it somewhat grounded and allows us to have some humour, and also high stakes, but also make it accessible and personable.”

It’s a style she attributes to showrunners Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero, who have given a completely original spin to the comic book-based series. “It’s almost like [Thomas] in his own life is quite comfortable with the darker side of things, and that can be a lovely balance. Some of the funniest things are borne out of situations that could be quite traumatic or quite morbid and being able to see the light and the dark in those situations is a skill set, and it’s really accessible for an audience.

“We’re working with a morgue consultant, who we put past every single question about how we would deal with a body in certain situations and she has such a dark sense of humour herself; she’s so, so funny and I find that very appealing that, you wouldn’t want it to be borne out of disrespect or anything, but bad stuff happens — that’s life and how things go and if you can’t find a way to laugh about it, then what a miserable way to exist.”

Source | “iZombie’s” game-changing season 2 finale introduced several new exciting storylines for the show’s season 3, but does this mean the CW series is moving away from the procedurals?

“I think now that our show is going into the third season, there’s room to shake the structure a little bit and play outside the box,” series actress Rose McIver told Comic Book Resources.

However, the 27-year-old actress — who plays Liv Moore on the series — noted that the show’s procedural aspects will always be important to the premise of the program.

“There are certainly great things about it being a procedural as a device for her being able to eat those brains each week, and for it to hang on these very specific story hooks can be fantastic, too,” she said. “I think it could kind of go either way at the moment, and I feel like story-wise and character dynamic-wise, relationship-wise, there’s really, really interesting stuff coming to play with.”

During a sit-down interview with Showbiz Junkies at WonderCon last month, McIver’s co-star Robert Buckley was asked the same question, and although he couldn’t really tell whether fans can expect less procedural episodes next season, he did say that “big changes” are coming,

“I really can’t give you a very informed answer because I don’t know what they have in store,” the 34-year-old actor, who plays Major Lilywhite on the series, said when asked if the show is moving away from the procedurals. “But going off of the script, [season 2 finale] is a game changer certainly in several ways. In the procedural aspect, I don’t know if it’s going to be a game-changer there. But in the relations between the characters and the dynamics of those relationships, absolutely. Big changes.”
