Director Kathleen Lorden Answers Five Questions

In the latest installment of our regular running feature, Director Kathleen Lorden with Radar Studios answers Five Questions With SCREEN.

SCREEN: What's your favorite day of the week? Why?

LORDEN: Thursday. Anticipation is the name of the game. You can almost taste Friday nights’ pizza party.

SCREEN: Can you cook? If so, what's your go-to dish?

LORDEN: I have the diet of an eight-year-old but fortunately my cooking skills are a bit more advanced. I still panic when my foodie friends come for dinner but I just leave out Whole Foods bags and they think I know what I’m doing. I always end the meal with some sort of fancy chocolate dessert, so they’re tricked into thinking the entire meal was yummy.

SCREEN: What's your guilty pleasure TV?

LORDEN: To the dismay of my husband, I don’t enjoy relaxing or watching TV much, but I did get addicted to “90 Day Fiancé” at one time. Anything with unusual characters and awkward moments is for me.

SCREEN: Describe your perfect Sunday?

LORDEN: The day would begin with coffee and convo at the end of the pier in Wisconsin. After a light read, we’d go for a bike ride then waterski (Sure, I have a sporty side). As sunset neared, we’d all set sail in the pontoon (that earned the name ‘booze cruise’ for a reason). Appetizers would flow as freely as the laughter. We’d hit a stock car race then end the night around a bonfire. There’d be warmth, music and lightning bugs (Sure, I have a hippy side). Whatta day.

SCREEN: What's your favorite drink, alcoholic or otherwise?

LORDEN: My family has been in the beer business for seventy-five years so I’m wired to love it. It upped my street cred in high school even though I still struggled to find a prom date.

SCREEN: What's the last movie you saw in a theater?

LORDEN: A friends’ documentary last week. She busted me for nodding off. It was due to a late week of work, not the content. At least, that’s what I told her.


SCREEN: Who are you missing right now?

LORDEN: My sweet and spunky two-year-old. She waves goodbye and gives well wishes to inanimate objects before we leave for daycare each day…aww.
