Scout Taylor-Compton On Her New Film “Apache Junction,” Other New Projects, Music & More
In the new film Apache Junction, the area known as Apache Junction is an outpost of lawlessness, a haven for thieves and cold-blooded killers. After big-city reporter Annabelle Angel (played by Scout Taylor-Compton) arrives to write an article on the town, she becomes a target when notorious gunslinger Jericho Ford (played by Stuart Townsend) comes to her aid. Now Annabelle must entrust her future to a man with a deadly past, as Jericho heads toward a tense showdown in this thrilling Western that unloads a double-barreled blast of action. Costarring country music superstar Trace Adkins and Thomas Jane, Apache Junction was written and directed by Justin Lee (Badland, Swell) and was released by Saban Films to Theaters, On Demand and Digital outlets on September 24, 2021.
The aforementioned Scout Taylor-Compton first began working as an actress before her 10th birthday. After plenty of television, film and commercial appearances, she arguably first made big waves internationally as Clara Forrester, a recurring role on Gilmore Girls. Just a few years later, Taylor-Compton would be seen in Rob Zombie’s Halloween and its subsequent sequel. Working steadily in the years since, Taylor-Compton — also a singer and songwriter — played Lita Ford in The Runaways and had a recurring role on Nashville. Apache Junction is just one of the many projects she has filmed for release over the last year; many of those projects can be found on her IMDb page.
On September 27, 2021 — just days after I spoke with her co-star Stuart Townsend — I had the pleasure of talking with Scout Taylor-Compton via Zoom, as embedded below. More on Taylor-Compton, Apache Junction and other projects of hers can be found by clicking here, here and here.
