EVIL DEAD Stars – Meet Mark Vanis

EVIL DEAD fans ask us often about the minds behind the show – who plays what part, what are their names, are they single, etc. This week we are harassing Mark Vanis!

We used to keep everyone’s identity under wraps, for fear of encouraging stalkers. But now we figure it is time to let our freak flags fly, and we’ve chosen to expose ourselves!

To that end, the EVIL DEAD team has agreed to answer some questions that were posed to them to reveal to you a little about them, who they are, and if they’re on TINDER. Their responses vary from serious to silly, informative to inane, and we are happy to share them with you!

Emcee / Running Crew
What is your name? What does it mean?
A small area on a surface having a different color from its surroundings, typically one caused by accident or damage.
A line, figure, or symbol made as an indication or record of something

Can you talk about landing your position in the show? Did you do anything unique to demonstrate you would be perfect for the show?
I annoyed the producer/director via email until he gave me an internship. My selling point was that I am a die hard fan of everything Evil Dead.

What is the one book you always recommend to people to read?
I never recommend books since I’m not a reader, but I do recommend the novella “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.”

What is a habit you would like to break?
Eating unhealthy because getting bigger makes it harder to scratch my ass and tie my shoes.

Have you ever met Bruce Campbell?
Yup. At least 4 times. They were chill since he’s humble, hilarious, respectful, and an all around cool cat.

If there is one memory ingrained in your mind that you will always remember from the show, what is it?
Sirc’s reaction to seeing two dead rabbits hung up on a road post when we were driving on a back road to Salt Lake City. “WTF man! This is how horror movies start!”

What do your family members think of you doing the show?
They are jealous, envious, and extremely proud that I’m doing something and am a part of something I truly love.

If you could add anything you wanted to the show, what would it be?
Ted Raimi playing Fake Shemp.
