The Arts and Entertainment Magazine had interviewed actress Calista Carradine (click to see our interview in the January 2011 issue) under our old banner THE EERIE DIGEST. Since that time Calista has been quite busy.
We recently learned that she is co-starring in Nail House as well Mansion of Blood. The songs in ‘Mansion’ were written by the award winning bass player John Schayer for which she is recording. Calista has also wrote and sang songs in ‘Robert Loveless an American Legend’. The event was performed at the award night for AOF films where The Loveless Legend won many awards.
“Today I am working on a music video with my fathers recording of one his songs to donate to a film project that supports orphans around the world, Orphans in the Storm, and intend to get started on an album as soon as possible”, she said. (See her site at the link :

Calista is also the granddaughter of the late John Carradine, and I had the pleasure of meeting her at the American Film Markets festival held in the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, California. We talked the entire evening there and was very impressed with her warmth and style. She is also a great actress in her own right.
Among the pictures included with this article there is one of her in her role in Mata Hari that is still in post production after thirty years of filming. ” Calista is a sweet and very talented woman”, our publisher Joseph J. O’Donnell, said. ” Meeting her was a privilege and a pleasure”.
Our publication wishes Calista much luck in all her work and we hope to post more articles on her in the future.
