Thank you to Yan Birch aka The Stairmaster from The People Under the Stairs for coming on my show for my first interview of my 2021 October Horror shows! Yan Birch discussed life of growing up in Sweden, his first Horror film being Roger Corman's Slumber Party Massacre III, and getting the role as The Stairmaster in Wes Craven's 1991 classic The People Under the Stairs. He told stories of Wes Craven expanding his role in the film, hiding on a rooftop from people from Universal Studios when he went over-budget, and helping Brandon Adams get into his scene at the end of the film. Yan revealed that him and Wes remained close friends for years and there were talks of a sequel to The People Under the Stairs, but Wes never thought it could surpass the original. It was confirmed in 2015 that Wes Craven was going to make a People Under the Stairs TV series for SyFy, in which he was going to bring back original cast members including Yan. Yan got into his newest work including 99 Problems and Tale of Tails. He announced that there will be a 30th Anniversary People Under the Stairs panel at a convention in New Mexico this October on Halloween weekend with some of the original cast members.
