Alexis Ren drops by to talk with Kyle Meredith about Latency, her new sci-fi thriller that follows a professional gamer tasked with testing new gaming equipment that's capable of reading her mind. Listen to the interview now.

Ren explains the unique acting challenges Latency posed, as the cast is solely made up of her and Sasha Luss. She details how such an intimate on-screen crew helps elevate the film's themes of solitude and mental health. To that point, the actress also explains the parallels the role had with the work she's done as a mental health activist.

Then, Ren tells the story of how director James Croke originally wanted her to shave her head for the roll before recalling her time on Dancing with the Stars. She also dives into her many hobbies, as well as her take on working opposite CGI.
