The Hottie Stop interviews Sarah Habel, star of Riverdale and Atomica!

03.13.2017by: Eric Walkuski

Imagine being trapped in an underground facility with only Tom Sizemore and Dominic Monaghan as your companions. Scary, huh? That's the plight Sarah Habel has to go through in the new sci-fi mystery ATOMICA. In the film, Sarah plays a young safety inspector who is forced to fly out to investigate a malfunctioning power plant, where the only residents are two extremely unhinged employees (the aforementioned actors). Sarah gets to be a kickass action heroine in the film, which is soon to be available everywhere.

Habel has additional more eyes on her thanks to her controversial role as Miss Grundy in the CW series Riverdale. Yes, Sarah is playing a seductive teacher who has an illicit affair with everybody's favorite boy next door, Archie, and fans were certainly riled up by the storyline. It might be the highest-profile part for the actress, who has had roles in such shows as Underemployed, Rush, Hawaii Five-O and Cold Case.

I spoke to Sarah about her creepy experiences on the ATOMICA set (watch out for the bats), as well as the Riverdale reaction, her alternate career paths and more!

Tell me what you can about the film and the character you play?

I've never been a character like this before. She's such a fish out of water and in way over her head. Her precision and attention to detail is sort of the opposite of my own personal way of doing things. [Laughs] It was a huge challenge, she's so tough and strong and diligent. I was extremely lucky to be able to work on this.

So you would not be handling this situation well in real life?

I would freak the f*ck out, for sure. That would be my strategy, running and screaming.

What kind of set was this, in the sense that it's just the three actors and you're around them all the time?

It was almost like an underground city of scariness. It was an underground nuclear facility that was abandoned in the 70s. It was always 45 degrees in there, freezing cold, and bats were flying around the whole time. It was enormous, people could get lost in this crazy labyrinth. It was a fourth character in the movie, it was immense. It had such an effect on how we all played our characters. It puts a weight on you.

Did you ever get lost?

I never got lost, but I did shoot a scene where I discovered something really creepy, and I was alone looking for someone, and we were shooting and a bat swooped down and almost hit me in the face. That may even be in the cut that they ended up using. [Laughs] I just had to keep going.

Were you able to handle the bats, or were you freaking out?

I think I handled the bats with professional energy.

Do you like science-fiction?

I do. Battlestar Galactica is like my favorite TV show of all time. Some of Alien, and all that business. I don't keep up with everything as I have a toddler, but I do dig it.

What is your preferred genre of movie or television?

I'm super into comedies. I love watching it, and I love improv comedy, so this particular movie was a big departure for me. The gravity of this role was a big switch for me.

Did you get along well with Dominic and Tom?

Yeah, totally. Tom and Dominic are such pros, they're like the hosts of the party. They were so much fun to work with and to be around.

Of course right now you're also on Riverdale, which is really popular. What has that experience been like so far?

People are very excited about it. It's such a strange combination of actors. There's all that Americana kitsch that goes along with the Archie comics, but it's presented in such a different way. The actors are all so strong, there's no person who isn't perfectly cast in the core group. It was such a great set to work on, and I'm so excited I got to do it. It was a really different role for me too, because I'm like, the grown-up. [Laughs] It was really fun, and super scandalous in every way.

Are you hearing from the fans a lot, is your social media blowing up?

I'm hearing from the fans, yes. There are a lot of ladies out there who are super angry with Grundy for scandalizing their object of affection, which I totally understand. [Laughs] But yeah, Grundy is a hot topic. I think she was trending, people are really excited about that character and that relationship so I've been really lucky to get a chance to explore that.

Do you prefer working in television or feature films?

I just kind of love to work. With film it's so intense and deep and takes more time, it's a bit more like theater that way, you take a lot more time with every scene to really explore. With television, it's never-ending, it's more like life, it just goes on and on. There are good things about both.

If you you weren't an actor, what do you think you'd be doing with your life right now?

If I weren't an actor I'd either open a knitting shop, because I'm super into knitting, or maybe be a therapist, because I like to talk about feelings. Or a stand-up comedian!

Why not both?

Yeah, why not all?

What do you do for fun when you're not working?

I love to eat, exercise, knit and bake. I'm kind of a homebody, so I just stay inside the house, pretty much.

Doesn't sound bad. Well, thank you very much for your time.

Thank you so much!
