Cherie Lunghi
A lot of us in Slipknot, we get to go to wounded soldier hospitals where soldiers have lost their limbs. That’s surreal. It’s even more surreal to talk to them about your band.

In reality, I’ve always been an actor – since I was a kid. I did theater growing up in New York. I was always in the plays in school. I was either going to be an actor or an athlete or a soldier. Those were kind of the three paths that I always kind of embarked on.
