Anne-Marrie Kennedy and Ben VanderMey star in “The Paramedic Who Stalked Me” a new, original movie which premiered Saturday, February 26 on Lifetime. We at Survived The Shows had the pleasure of chatting with Lexi Minetree about her experience in the making of the movie, what people can expect. Check out the full interview below!

What’s the main element in Chloe’s character and the movie in general that fascinates you the most and drew you to join The Paramedic Who Stalked Me?

LEXI MINETREE: I really love how much she cares about her family and friends around her. It’s really her driving force; she might be afraid, but she won’t let anyone mess with the people she loves. Even a terrifying paramedic.

Where are you and Chloe most similar and where most different as human beings?

I would say I am not quite as sassy as Chloe, she definitely has some bite in her when it comes to talking with her mom, Karen (though maybe my own mom would disagree). As for most similarities, I think I might have a bit of Chloe’s rash nature. She tends to leap into situations without thinking them entirely through, and I definitely might know a thing or two about that. It’s what keeps life interesting!

To all the fans looking forward to watching the movie, how would you describe The Paramedic Who Stalked Me in just 3 words?

I think the title pretty much sums it up but I would say: Scary Paramedic Stinks

What can you tease about Chloe’s journey throughout the movie?

Chloe and her mom really have a beautiful arc and learn to understand each other by the end.

What’s been the biggest challenge for you in portraying Chloe?

Chloe is put through a ton of really turbulent situations, and finding the emotional stamina for her was definitely tough for me. She goes through a lot of traumatic moments, I found a lot of empathy for her throughout the process though while still taking care of my own well-being playing such a character. My other fellow actors were all so wonderful as well and some of the heavier scenes were easier to handle.

Talking about the environment on set, how would you describe your experience while filming The Paramedic Who Stalked Me and do you have any fun anecdotes to share?

It was wonderful!!! Everyone was so amazing to work with, so generous and so talented! The other actors that I worked with made the job so easy, and everyone got really close in the weeks we were filming. Working with Maeve, who played my mom in the film, was a joy and we learned we both went to the same college: USC (fight on!!). Also, Nick Clark, who played my boyfriend Bryce, is an old friend of mine! We both went to the same theatre camp, and it was so cool to be able to work with a familiar face.

If you could choose any other character from The Paramedic Who Stalked me, apart from Chloe, that you would have loved to play, which one would it be and why?

I think I would want to play the character Lexi, just cause I think it would be funny to play a character with the same name as me.

What can you tease about your next projects?

Right now, I am working on theatre shows. I just finished up playing Marianne in a play adaptation of Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austin.

Throwing back to the origins of your career, how did the passion for acting come about in your life?

Ever since I was little, I loved to read. I would always have a book with me, everywhere I went. I even won an award for reading the most books in the entire school my fifth grade year! I think this love of reading and escaping to other worlds was the first indicator I had that I would fall in love with performing. Each performance leads to a whole new world, one that you are able to share with the viewers and allow them to escape themselves. I think that is a beautiful thing.

Among all the roles you’ve had the chance to play throughout your career, is there any particular role you’re most fond of?

My favourite role I have ever played is Brooke from the play Noises Off. It was a blast to perform in because I got to play a bad actor, which was incredibly fun to do! It’s nice to be in shows where you get to be silly the whole time.

The Paramedic Who Stalked Me, with Lexi Minetree, premieres February 26 on Lifetime.
