Hi everyone. So Shelley did a photoshoot for Mane Addicts a few months back and it’s finally out. You can check find it in our gallery. On another note she attended howlercon last week-end and i will be doing a masterpost of all the things she said during her panels along with some pictures from the fans.
If you’re a Teen Wolf fan, you know that Shelley Hennig’s character Malia is known for her long gorgeous hair. Which is why when we saw her super fresh new short haircut, that she needed to come in for a Mane Muse shoot stat. With the help of Australian hair guru Kevin Murphy, we showed off just how versatile short hair can be.
“I was so excited that The Kevin Murphy behind the amazing products was doing my hair,” says Shelley. “He’s amazing! I’m really impressed with him. He can do anything with hair, it’s unbelievable.”
First i’m coming with some good news some (hopefully i’ll have more up to the gallery tomorrow) HQ pictures of Shelley at Sirius XM Entertainment Weekly Radio have been uploaded. You can also find in the gallery several updates of SDCC: The photoshoot the cast did for TV Guide Magazine, the Entertainment Weekly Photobooth and finally some pictures fans posted of the autograph session about those you’ll have to be a bit more patient for HQ just like for the panel which is happening right now. On another note the cast did an interview for Entertainment Weekly where they were compared to the “Beyoncé” of SDCC.
So far, Teen Wolf’s fifth season has been full of flashbacks, mystery, and lot and lots of black ooze. And with the Dread Doctors — who we know are going to stick around for part 2 of season 5 — creating new supernatural enemies every week, things are just starting to get complicated.
Shelley is already attending the San Diego Comic Con (friendly reminder that the panel will be at 5PM and she will also be doing autographs with Holland Roden) keep checking back for the HQ pictures from all the stuff happening today. The cast went to SiriusXM radio just like they did last year and here is there interview.
For the lucky ones who are living near Austin, Texas it appears that the Holland, Tyler and our dear Shelley will be attending the Television Festival there on Sunday June 7th at 12:00 pm.
Join “Teen Wolf” cast members and the creative team behind the show as they take ATX by storm. The pack will dish secrets, answer fan questions and give the audience a peek at the upcoming fifth season of MTV’s hit drama series which premieres Monday, June 29th at 10:00 pm ET.
Shelley is on the cover of Bello Mag this month and thanks to my friend @brittrobertsone you can find both HQ and MQ scans in the gallery. Bello Mag is only a digital one so if you’re looking to buy it and support Shelley you can do it from here.
An MTV series is the type of gig that most young actors would kill for, and Shelley Hennig knows it. Since joining the supernatural series Teen Wolf in 2014, Hennig has quickly become a staple of the ensemble as the resident werecoyote of the show alongside her co-stars Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien.
“I got to do my own stunts the other night, which was pretty bad ass,” she tells me while on break from shooting the fifth season. “I laugh the entire time. It’s such a great show with a lot of action, humor, and scary shit.” She laughs. “It’s the best of both worlds. I’m really lucky they accepted me into the Teen Wolf family.” On her character of Malia, she tells me, “I love how honest she is. It’s nice to be playing such a strong female role that’s also comedic.” In a show in which guest starring actors clamor to get a recurring spot, Hennig quickly earned her way to be billed as a regular cast member.
Shelley has been doing an interview with Maxim where she talked mostly about her journey into becoming and actress/herself. You can find BTS from one of her recent photoshoot in the gallery thanks to @MeccaCox for providing them.
Shelley Hennig may be fully embracing the horror genre, but she didn’t grow up loving scary movies. The gorgeous Louisiana native found herself in the pageant world during her childhood, and went on to earn the tile of Miss Teen USA 2004. It was after a few years in New York that she shifted gears and headed to Los Angeles to pursue acting full time. “There are only pros to working in TV and film,” she says. “You create a family with TV that you’re around all the time, and you can explore more genres and characters with film.”
Fast forward to 2015, where if haven’t spotted her as the badass werecoyote Malia on MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” you can catch her in the latest found footage supernatural thriller, “Unfriended.” “Nothing’s been done like this movie,” she says. “It’s definitely the most satisfying experience of my career.”
The brunette bombshell told us all about her dream roles, a little bit of confidence, and her “Bob’s Burgers” obsession.
When someone hands you a full scholarship you take it! Or at least I did after somehow winning Miss Teen USA. It was a scholarship to New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. I sucked. But I was determined to make this free schooling and free living situation in NYC worth it. Luckily I fell for acting intensely and have never looked back since.
If I wasn’t acting, I’d definitely be a backup dancer for major stars. Or a go-go dancer in a club. I’m not picky, I just love to dance.
A go-to curse word has to be “fuck.” It just rolls off the tongue.
The movie’s casting director thought Hennig would be a perfect fit for Blaire, bringing her in to meet the filmmakers. She booked the gig and was ready for the haunting to begin—which was unlike any other experience for the actress.
“Normally when you’re doing a film, they call action but there’s like 30 or 40 people around. With this movie, I was alone in my bedroom,” Hennig says. “Everything was different, so everything was sort of a challenge. They wrote a great story and allowed us to improvise on top of that. And that’s how we really figured out who our characters were and built chemistry with each other.”
Unfriended’s filming took place entirely in one house, with each actor in their own room being filmed in real time by their laptop cameras. When the characters on screen went to Google something or respond to Facebook messages, the actors matched the action on their own computers to help genuinely pace the movie. But this was done solely to help bring authenticity to the film. The final product of top-right corner notifications and mouse clicks that audiences get to see was made through nifty editing and a team of animators.
“Sometimes there was filming both in one week, both Teen Wolf and Unfriended, so it’d be a little confusing. Like I’d go to set and all of a sudden Blaire is aggressive and people are like ‘Whoa what are you doing,’” she laughs. “Then I’d have to remind myself, ‘Oh right, I’m Blaire today, I’m Blaire for the next two hours,’ but it all worked out and I really enjoyed playing both characters. They’re nothing alike.”
Shelley has been doing an interview with DuJour where she talked about Unfriended thanks to them we also have another amazing picture coming from one of her photoshoot that you can find in our gallery.
When it came to making Unfriended, the super-scary social media thriller hitting theaters this week, things were different from the very beginning.
“The audition process was part of the start of me realizing how unique this project was going to be,” says the film’s star (and former Miss Teen USA) Shelley Hennig. “It was at the casting office, and I Skyped with another actor in a room in the casting office, while the casting director, writer and director watched on a third computer. I knew right there that this was going to be something off the wall, and I just wanted to be a part of it.”
Hennig got her wish, and things didn’t get any more traditional. The actress and her costars filmed the movie—about a group of friends being terrorized over the web by what seems to be their late friend—using unique laptop cameras and not on a big set, but in a house in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita.
For those of you that won’t get to see unfriended for the moment, i thought i’d leave you with some movie clips you’ll find those at the end of the article also Shelley shared her opinion on the dark side of social media you can read about it here.
Teen Wolf star Shelley Hennig often gets respect if not undying love online. Fans usually bombard the former Miss Teen USA with adoration, but there are exceptions.
“People ask me to sit on their face a lot,” says Hennig, about some of the messages she receives when guys hit that @shelleyhennig handle on Twitter. She can’t figure out whether to be curiously flattered or simply offended by the rudeness. While Hennig doesn’t put much stock in what she reads online, she recognises how scary the internet can be. She even made a movie about it.
I read about your audition for Unfriended and how it involved you Skyping with the other actors. How unusual of an audition was that for you? Shelley Hennig: Well I had never done that before, Skyping for an audition, but we were in an office and then I went into a room and they told me that I was going to Skype with an actor and we just did the scene. It was sort of like voyeurism; they’re watching on a third computer. It was definitely unique, but because of that I fell in love immediately. I felt I had to be a part of this. I though that it’s already unique and this is just the auditioning process. I can’t imagine what’s going to happen after. So luckily, they thought I was a good Blaire. You were a great Blaire. In fact, everybody in this movie was perfectly cast. Shelley Hennig: Perfectly cast. John McAlary (the casting director) was unbelievable. It’s one of my favorite parts of the movie, how perfectly cast everyone is.
Broken down to its essence, Unfriended is a slasher movie, a revenge flick about a bunch of faintly unlikable kids being harassed by someone who knows what they did last April. It’s the execution, the sheer formal ingenuity, that will make horror buffs reach for the “like” button. The film turns the quirks and glitches of modern technology into tools of the scaring trade. Every frozen webcam image generates suspense, every interruption of the video feed is a strategic blackout. (For once, it’s not hyperbolic to use the expression “pinwheel of death.”) The innovation extends to the film’s narrative tricks, too, as director Levan Gabriadze and screenwriter Nelson Greaves shrewdly dole out exposition through their main character’s browsing habits. Instead of flashbacks, there are guilty peaks at the “see friendship” section of Facebook. Instead of the customary third-party expert, brought in to explain the horror that’s happening, there’s an ominous message board. In one of the movie’s slyest moves, information regarding the dead girl’s traumatic past is subtly revealed in a chat window, as someone waffles about what she wants to say, typing and retyping the words until she finds a suitably cryptic explanation.
