The queen, known for her dynamic presence and talent, is taking on a new challenge in the world of cinema. In an interview with GAY TIMES, Cara Melle revealed her latest venture – a starring role in a vampire comedy film titled ‘Slay.’
A Dramatic Departure

‘Slay’ promises to be a unique blend of humor, horror, and drag culture. Described by Cara Melle, the film follows a drag queen girl group on tour in the US, performing in less-than-glamorous venues.

The film, set in various locations including the African woods, promises action, CGI effects, and a lot of blood.
Star-Studded Drag Cast
Joining Cara Melle in ‘Slay’ are fellow ‘Drag Race’ alumni Trinity the Tuck, Heidi N Closet, and Crystal Methyd. The film is poised to be a thrilling mash-up of genres, drawing comparisons to iconic titles like ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ ‘AJ and the Queen,’ ‘The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,’ and ‘Underworld.’ Cara Melle’s excitement about the project hints at a unique cinematic experience blending drag artistry with action and comedy.
While a release date for ‘Slay’ has not been announced, Cara Melle indicated that the film’s producers are aiming for a prompt release. This upcoming project signifies a significant step for Cara Melle in her post-‘Drag Race UK’ career, showcasing her versatility as an entertainer and artist.
