Question: What appealed to আপনি about the character of Carly?
Elisha Cuthbert: The character was most appealing at first because I was coming off of “The Girl পরবর্তি Door,” which sort of was a great first film for me, but I wanted to do something extremely different.
And when Joel brought me “House of Wax,” I thought this is perfect because the genre is different, the idea is different, and the character is nothing like Danielle in “The Girl পরবর্তি Door.” We kind of created Carly in the sense that she was a lot আরো tomboyish, not so particularly pretty – but pretty in her own way -...
Q: Did আপনি take any of the wax শ্রদ্ধার্ঘ্য প্রথমপাতা with you?
I don't want to burst anyone's bubble, but actual wax doesn't look like actual wax screen I guess. So it was a খাবার preservative. So I took a lot of খাবার preservative প্রথমপাতা with me. It was a খাবার filler with sort of a জেলি substance -- and if আপনি can imagine like curdled দুধ with a hair gel kind of thing.

Q: Good morning, Elisha. I think it's appropriate to say that আপনি clean up nice. This shoot must have been grueling.
You not only go into the road kill pit, but the other things আপনি go through. I think I went through the most…not prosthetics, but gore, blood, goo আপনি know, everything. Green finger, the whole thing. We were strategically putting white dots on a green tip so we could digitally remove the finger. So it was like, don't touch the finger. Don't touch the finger. We have special dots on the finger. Also throughout the course of the film always bandaging the finger up and remembering...
