Red Alert Producer and Star Sloan Avrich
Sloan you are now a movie star and producer and you’re only ten. Is that a world record?
I hope it’s a world record. That would be cool.
As a fellow redhead I too was perplexed and sad to read that report that we were a dying breed. What got you going?
I was surfing the net and I found an article that said red heads would be extinct but I was suspicious. I wanted to debunk the myth.
How did you pick the redheads you interview? Did any of them report redhead prejudice or envy?
I put the word out I was looking for red heads for my movie and many people responded. A few of them said people were not very nice.
Kick a Ginger Day seems harsh and “hairist”. Are you fighting to stop such anti-redhead behaviour?
Well that’s one of the reasons I made the movie.
Richard Crouse made some good remarks about redheads and Hollywood glamour. How did you get him? He’s so busy.
He is a friend of my parents. So I just asked him and he said yes. What a nice guy.
Do you find that redheads bond together?
Of course red heads bond! But all colours should bond too.
Are you thinking about another movie?
I only make one movie at a time. Stay tuned.
Sloan, Barry and Max Avrich
