Question: Who is Detective Schwartz and what does he want?
Derek Frohberg: Detective Schwartz is an arrogant detective who wants to discover the killer and solve the mystery.
Q: Why did you audition for Retreat!
D.F.: I thought it would be a fun and interesting experience because I've never acted before.
Q: What is fun about being in a mystery?
D.F.: It adds tension for the audience because they have to go through so many twists and turns as the story goes forward.
Q: If you could set a mystery in any location, where would you set it?
D.F.: A desolate place. Everyone would be a suspect because there are not as many people who could have committed the crime.
