At Dallas’ USA Film Festival, I had the recent pleasure to sit down with actress Alicja Bachleda to talk about her new film ONDINE. Also starring Colin Farrell, the fairytale-esque film from director Neil Jordan (THE CRYING GAME, INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE) tells of a fisherman (Farrell) that catches a beautiful and mysterious young woman (Bachleda) in his nets. No pun here...that is actually what happens! The woman is believed to be a , a figure from ancient Irish folklore akin to a mermaid or water nymph. But as we know with Mr. Jordan’s films, not everything may always be what it appears. Or is it?

Guess you’ll have to see the film to find out! But first, check out our interview with Ms. Bachleda. Don’t worry...it’s spoiler free!
