Meagan Good “Giant” Photo Shoot & Interview

Meagan Good From the perch of a penthouse loft overlooking downtown Los Angeles, 27-year-old actress Meagan Good candidly reflects on her evolution from child actress to teen idol and now to scream queen. The talented, stunningly beautiful California native has, in her considerable career, amassed a broad resume of television and movie credits, so there’s much to consider. TV apperances have included The Steve Harvey Show and House, and her film roles have been similarly diverse, Biker Boyz, D.E.B.S., You Got Served, Roll Bounce, Waist Deep, Stomp the Yard and The Love Guru are but a few.

The “scream queen” title is new. It stems from Good’s parts in two marquee horror films: Saw V (scheduled for a highly anticipated October 24 release) and The Unborn (due out next year), which is directed by David S. Goyer, who penned the Blade franchise and co-wrote the story of The Dark Knight.

In Saw V, Good plays a character named Luba, but she’s mum about any plot details. The script is shrouded in secrecy, and the filmmakers shot several endings. As in the previous four films, the vicious serial killer Jigsaw tests his victims’ wills to live through a series of complex and gruesome death traps. Good endured torturous contraptions take after take. Some setups were so dangerous that paramedics were standing by on the set, but Good was up for the challenge. “Meagan brought combination of talent, dedication and personality to the character,” recalls the film’s director David Hackl. “No matter how uncomfortable the scene, Meagan was always ready to go for another take.”

By definition, a scream queen is a nubile, attractive actress who gains commercial notoriety by appearing in a horror film as a damsel in distress. Although such roles are considered lowbrow, Good is in fine company as she joins the ranks of Jamie Lee Curtis, Sissy Spacek and Sara Michelle Gellar. “I love horror movies,” Good declares. “The Halloween movies inspired me to be an actress. I wanted to be the girl being chased and running from something horrible.”

This sentiment may be unexpected from a young African-American actress but Meagan is anything but predictable. “I want to play roles that people wouldn’t expect to see me in,” she says. “At the end of the day, I’m no sex kitten. Sometimes I’m downright corny.”

  1. I can’t believe I’m saying this but, I’m actually happy to see a Meagan Good post. Haven’t seen her in a while. Lol. I’m usually the first to fuss about her being featured too much but with all this (insert your favorite B word) mania, Meagan (or anybody) is a breath of fresh air.

    She looks lovely.

  3. I’m always happy to see a Megan Good post! She’s like a baby Halle {kinda sorta} in my book.

    “At the end of the day, I’m no sex kitten. Sometimes I’m downright corny.”

  6. believe it or not many people mistake me for meagan and im from zimbabwe. down to the juicy lips yall. love the chick, she makin a name for herself and getting that paper!

  7. she’s okay for me, there’s always something off about her styling (i think she always looks trashy). but it is nice to here about someone else didn’t know she was in two horror flicks.

  8. I would like see her in Saw V, but I saw the first Saw movie and it scared the sh** out of me. I can’t handle that sequel…I hope that role takes her career to the next level though. I’m waiting for her to crossover like Will and Halle. She’s a beautiful girl too. She puts a lot of these other so called beauties to shame! She just needs never needs to wear a see thru shirt with no bra again and she’ll be alright.

  9. She kind of looks like that actresses Kerry I think Underwood. I could be wrong about her last name. The one that played in So I think I love my wife with Chris Rock.

  10. These are some great photos of Meagan and I wish her the best. She`s very beautiful and sexy. By the way, I forgot to list her among the women who I find sexy in The Halle Berry post. But she`s definitely on my list for sure. I`m sure there are others but she`s among those who immediately come to mind. She`s definitely hott.
