Just when you thought it was safe to put away your tankini and stop sucking in your belly while girl-watching from behind your Ray Bans, Shark Night 3D slips into theaters today like a Great White into a seal pup convention.
Brought to you by the same gentle souls who gave us Hostel and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Shark Night 3D will probably scare the bejeezus out of you. You may not even know where your bejeezus are, but prepare to lose them anyway.
Anywho. A while back, we interviewed professional stuntwoman Jessica Harbeck, who had recently finished shooting Shark Night in Louisiana. With the film opening today, we thought it would be fun to follow up on all things sharky.
AfterEllen: The last time we talked, you mentioned working on Shark Night 3D. What stunts did you do for the film?

AE: Which stunt was the most difficult?
AE: Yipes. What happened?
Regardless of how hard it became to hold onto the life preserver during each take, the hardest part was being in the water with visual confirmation I was not alone.
AE: Did you get to work with real sharks? Mechanical sharks? Dolphins in shark costumes? How does that work?
Shark Night star, Sara Paxton, and friend
AE: That’s cool. Why do lesbians like sharks so much, Jessica?
AE: I thought space was the final frontier. Oh well. Wrong again. Aside from the bikini-clad stars, what will lesbians like most about Shark Night 3D?
AE: Good point. I believe that’s in the handbook. What have you been doing since I last talked to you?
Harbeck, the old soul, working on CSI: New York
AE: Well, you look fantastic for your age. Are you still single? Because after our first interview, a bunch of readers wanted to ask you out.
Sorry, girls, she taken. But you can still try to get a glimpse of Jessica in action because Shark Night 3D opens today in the US and Canada, and internationally later this month.
