General Hospital star Tequan Richmond stars as Lee Boyd Malvo in the upcoming movie, Blue Caprice, about the Beltway Sniper. Smashing Interviews Magazine caught up with Richmond and chatted about the role.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Let’s talk about Blue Caprice. How did your involvement in the film come about?
Tequan Richmond: You know, I never thought about it, but my mom brought this to my attention the other day. I don’t think I’ve ever told anybody about this. We almost didn’t go with the film because we didn’t think it was going to be what it was. But the script was sent to me, and Alexandre Moors and I had a little meeting on Skype where I actually auditioned.
He basically wanted me to point the gun at the camera to see what it looked like and all types of weird stuff like that. After that, he called and said, “Well, come to New York.” After New York, everybody got acclimated with each other, and after that, we just went to work. That’s how it came about. He just wanted to meet on Skype.
