'The Pastor's Wife' News & Rumors
Article written on July 17, 2011 by Riikkae-mail

McGowaniacs have been speculating over Rose’s next project after she tweeted that she was working in Vancouver, BC and posted a photo of herself wearing a wedding dress earlier this month. Now details have emerged that McGowan is currently filming a TV movie titled The Pastor’s Wife, in which Rose plays a real-life woman named Mary Winkler. The real Winkler was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the 2006 shooting death of her husband, Matthew Winkler, the pulpit minister at the Fourth Street Church of Christ in the small town of Selmer, Tennessee. Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1) plays Matthew Winkler in the movie. Says Shanks:

“Doing a TV movie with Rose McGowan (Conan the Barbarian, Charmed) called The Pastor’s Wife. Based on a book, true life story etc.. I play pastor Matthew Winkler. Rose will play my character’s wife, Mary Winkler. If you read about the story, the synopsis becomes self evident.”

The film began production on July 11, based out of 1950 Franklin Street Vancouver, home of Front Street Pictures.

Sounds like an intriguing project! Many thanks to maxpower03 for the detective work. Further details on the case and the real Mary Winkler are available on Wikipedia.

A fantastic new interview has been added in the library (and an accompanying photoshoot picture in the gallery!), courtesy of La Vie en Ruffian. Rose discusses fashion, skin care, classic films, art and Betty Boop, among other things. It really is a great read so check it out!

Totally sweet is dull. You need to have some pathos for something to be interesting. Whenever I play a character who is lying, the audience has to know I am lying, but it still has to be real enough so the other character doesn’t know I am lying. The thing is, in a film as opposed to theatre, the camera is tight and close on your face. A tiny eye movement can be very evocative even though it is small. I try not to think about the process too much. The life unexamined. I am not a method actor—I think it sounds ridiculous when actors talk about their process. I don’t even like to call myself an actor. In fact, I was held up in Romania because I wrote student on my immigration entrance form.

She likes fast cars, classic films of the 1940’s, wears high heels despite an injured ankle. She became an actress by chance. The charming Rose McGowan talked about the beginnings of her career, work with Tarantino and Rodriguez and her passion for action movies.

She never wanted to be an actress. She moved to Los Angeles from rainy Seattle, lived with her boyfriend and wanted to start college. At that moment, her boyfriend died. Totally devastated, she lived at her friends’ place and a friend of a friend offered her first film acting role. She refused, but when she realised that thanks to the film she could make money and buy herself a flat, she changed her mind.

Rose McGowan is very closely tied to her siblings. She talked proudly of what they do now and how great and adventurous their childhood was. “We would go to the police station, tell that we escaped from home and come from a different town. They would give us money for a bus and we were going to the town we never before visited. Thus we saw many places.” Her childhood not always was this carefree. At the age of 14 she worked at a funeral home, and a year later she lost the roof above her head.
