Behind the Scenes with 'The Matron' from OUTPOST II: BLACK SUN

 

Playing 'The Matron' was one of the most enjoyable acting journeys in Vivien's career so far and she thought it would be fitting to show you some of the processes that went into creating the wonderful character! Huge thanks must go to Ali Mitchell for The Matron's wonderful attire, Paul Hyett and his team for casting Vivien's head and hands for the prosthetic pieces and Chris Fitzgerald and his team for attaching those aformentioned pieces and for transforming Vivien completely! The whole hair and make up team were absolutely excellent!
