Menagh and Brittain first teamed up on the award-winning film “As It Seems”, which was also written and directed by Menagh and starred O’Scanlon. It was for “As It Seems” that Menagh won the “Best Director” award at LIIFE back in 2018. Now, 3 years later, she’s nominated once more. “Victim No. 6” leads the pack this year at LIIFE with four wins (Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction and Best Original Score) and two nominations (Best Director and Best Horror Film).
When asked how she felt about her Best Actress win, Brittain replied, “I was honestly floored when I heard. There were some incredible performances this year and to be selected for this award is truly humbling. I owe so much thanks to Nancy, for writing the character of Donna for me, for being a generous collaborator, and for giving me great direction throughout. I am also so lucky to have had such wonderful cast-mates, who gave me so much to work with in each scene; everyone really brought their all to this film and that is evident to anyone who has seen it.”
