Danielle Panabaker is no stranger to horror. The actress has become something of a modern-day scream queen with roles in ‘The Crazies,’ ‘Mr. Brooks,’ and the remake of ‘Friday the 13th.’ This weekend Panabaker will continue this tradition in the bombastic, fish-balls-to-the-wall comedy horror ‘Piranha 3DD’.
The actress plays Maddy, a marine biology student who is racing against time to stop her stepfather Chet (David Koechner) from opening their water park before she can ensure that it is not infested with prehistoric water beasts. Oh yeah, and there's also a female extras with extra perky cleavage, hence the title.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Panabaker recently to talk about the many flavors of screams, the baby piranha (puppet) that she calls pet, and what she hopes to achieve in this next stage of her career.
