Special GuestsNina Kate
The real star of Hell's Kitty, Angel has worked with more icons of horror than any cat in history; and is likely the only feline in history to have ever gotten away with scratching Lee Meriwether. A method actor, she does all her own stunts and insists on being paid in tuna and treats. She inspired the Hell's Kitty franchise, serving as Tana's muse; sitting on his lap when he wrote the scripts. Regretfully, Angel passed away July 18, 2015 the same day fires engulfed several trucks and cars on the California freeway. Her fiery spirit will always be remembered; she has left an indelible mark upon the body (literally), and soul, of everyone who has had the privilege of working with her.
Nicholas Tana writes, directs, produces and stars in Hell's Kitty alongside his cat Angel and a host of horror icons. He works as a freelance writer, director, and musician and has served as Associate Director for ESPN, before starting his own production company, Smart Media L.L.C., for which he has written, produced, and directed numerous commercials.
As a writer, he has won the Short & NEAT One Act Play Festival in 2000, as well as The Arts in The Park award in 2002. He has worked as a contributing writer for the fashion magazine 944 and the movie and entertainment magazine Moving Pictures. Amongst those Nicholas had the honor of interviewing were Oscar-nominated actor Nick Nolte; best selling author Ray Bradbury; Ambassador of Afghanistan to the U.S., his Royal Highness Said Tayeb Jawad; and legendary award winning director, Blake Edwards.
As a musician, he has played in both Europe and the United States. His music has appeared on ESPN's X-Games and several commercials. Nicholas is proficient in Spanish and Italian, and brings this international knowledge, culture, and experience to his projects. He's known for his ability to bust genres wide open with fresh new concepts, and takes an innovative approach to branding them in an original way.
Lisa Younger plays Lisa Graves in Hell's Kitty. She got the part because she actually had experience going on a few dates with writer/director, Nicholas Tana, and had the pleasure and terror of having met Angel in real life prior to taking the role. As an actress, she is best known for Barely Legal (2011), About Abby (2010) and Hide (2011).
Adam has worked as a Production Assistant and Photo Editor in the entertainment business for The Insider and Entertainment Tonight. Adam got the part playing Adam in Hell’s Kitty because it was based upon his personality, and relationship as a former neighbor of Nicholas Tana. Although more hard working, and slightly less eccentric than the character he portrays; Adam has a natural ability at comedy, and could probably make a great career of it, if he didn’t suffer a profound aversion to publicity and interviews!
Nina Kate plays the cat therapist and Nick's love interest, Ms. Strodes, in Hell's Kitty. Her character name is an allusion to Laurie Strodes played by Jamie Lee Curtis in the infamous cult classic Halloween series. Nina Kate is best known for her roles in Non-Stop to Comic-Con (2016), Gun Woman (2014) and Hubris (2006).
Michael Berryman plays Detective Pluto in a allusion to 'Pluto' in the uncompromising Wes Craven horror film The Hills Have Eyes (1977). Berryman (who suffers from Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia, a rare condition leaving him with no sweat glands, hair, fingernails or teeth) reminds one of a latter-day Rondo Hatton who also suffered from a rare medical condition that distorted his features giving him a brutish look just right for horror movies. His role in Hell's Kitty makes is the only one in his filmography that makes a candid reference to his real world condition.
To Berryman's credit, he managed to develop upon his 'Pluto' character, and has turned up in numerous sci-fi / fantasy movies such as 'My Science Project'(1985), 'Weird Science (1985), Armed Response (1986) and Evil Spirits (1990). The tall & lean Berryman generally portrays mutant bikers, evil undertakers, monsters and other frightening characters! A genuine favorite of horror movie fans.
