DDP1_98: Clea, what made you want to become an
DuVall: It's the only thing that made any sense for me to
do--the only thing that kept my interest and kept me excited!
WashMePlease: Where did your parents get the idea for

DuVall: Thank you! It's from a book by Lawrence Durrell,

p2i: Clea, how many times have you done the chat thing?
DuVall: This is the first time.
MANOLIS_VARNAS: What was it like playing in that movie?
Are you a fan of horror films?
DuVall: Yeah, I like horror movies, they're fun. It was
the most fun I've had on a movie set.
Creed_2002: What do you think of the soundtrack to the movie?
DuVall: I haven't heard it yet.
the_sublime: Was it hard to make it into show biz? Did you
go to college?
DuVall: I didn't go to college. It's not an easy buisness
to break into, but I've been really fortunate. It's still hard
to get the parts you want.
havikkcapone: What kinda music you dig?
DuVall: My fave band in the world is Patsy out of L.A.,
P.J. Harvey, old Breeders stuff, the Pixies, the Geraldine Fibbers.
_MICKY_M: How old were you when you started acting?
DuVall: I was 18 -- professionally.
blitz_54: Are you related to Robert DuVall and Shelly DuVall?
DuVall: Nope, not even a little bit.
WashMePlease: Robert Rodriquez seems very cool to
work with and very laid back, is he?
DuVall: Yeah, he's the coolest guy in the world!
CDomino: What is your role in the new movie?
DuVall: Stokley, the dark loner girl.
Rock_Jock97: What movie can you compare this one to?
DuVall: Hmmm, it's like none other! It's very exciting and
lots of fun to watch.
soccergirl105: Did you do plays in high school?
DuVall: Yeah I did some, but I talk too quiet, and I have
to yell on stage. One of my fave plays is Who Will Carry the World.
_MICKY_M: What's your favorite movie that made you decide to be
DuVall: I was sooo little, but I wanted to be in The Goonies then every
few months I'd see a movie that inspired me, and there are sooo many.
FiRe_boy00: You were in Can't Harldy Wait, right?
DuVall: Yeah, I was... it was a small part, though.
Courtneywuv: What other actors do you want to work with?
DuVall: That's really funny -- she's an acquaintance, but she kinda makes
me nervous... Jude Law is great, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslett, Meryl Streep,
bubbles013215: What's your favorite color?
DuVall: Blue -- any shade really.
KnowYourDamnRole_: Do you think horror movies are making a comeback
like in the early 80's?
DuVall: I think so -- in a different way. The slasher movies no, but the current
crop is a bit smarter. Kevin Williamson in so smart in his writing that he'll
make people pause.
RupertGilesWalot: Where did you grow up?
DuVall: Hollywood, the scary parts.
KahyanB: How did you get your foot in the door to become an actress?
DuVall: I got headshots, an agent and started auditioning, but things didn't get
really started until I started working with my manager, and she really helped a lot.
FiRe_boy00: Clea, what do you do in your spare time?
DuVall: Stay home, go see bands, hang out with my friends... I really don't like to
go to clubs because I don't drink, and it ain't too much fun to see people
drink when you don't.
ecstacy_111: what was it like working with Elijah Wood?
DuVall: It was fun -- he's a really sweet guy and we became friends.
JasonB_15: Was the movie scary to do?
DuVall: Not really. It's hard to be scared when there are 80 people around you.
ManOfThought: Were you ever a loner, or did you always love life?
DuVall: I was a loner in high school. I keep to myself, but I love life.
MANOLIS_VARNAS: Are you anything like the character you play?
DuVall: Hmm... similar in that she keeps to herself in school and can't wait to get out
