1[on her sport and martial arts training] I actually don't do as much anymore. I'm a mom now, and my main exercise is chasing my three year old around! But I still train in boxing every once in a while as well as varying my workouts between yoga, pilates, roller blading, hiking and walking hills and stairs!
2Yes, I'm sure [my skills] could be an advantage there... I just don't like doing horror. I was a huge John Carpenter fan however and when they offered I said "YES!". John Carpenter's Vampires happened because I was friends with the stunt coordinator, Jeff Imada. He actually called me in to see if I'd be interested in doing a fire burn on the movie and I said; "I'd prefer not to". He told me to wait in the office. He went out back and came back about 5 minutes later and said; "Ok. They like you". I thought, cool. But I didn't know I actually got a job. I got home and the phone started ringing with where I needed to go for fittings, costume, prosthetics, contacts. It was awesome!
3I do love fantasy movies, I love anything that is based in magic and mystery. I particularly like the genre because you can get so many spiritual messages into what most consider to just be entertainment. For me it is a great way to communicate the greater mysteries of life... and the not so greater mysteries of life! I have been into these kinds of things ever since I was young, as long as I can remember actually. Probably stems from the fact that I don't believe I'm from here... I'm an alien!
4My dad was my all time hero when he was alive, and even more so now that he has passed. I wanted to be just like him! Funny because I was a girl, but yes, there was a great influence there. Mainly because he was a great person... not because he was so tough, which he was... but because he had a great heart. He loved people and helping them. I'm the same. He was also a great athlete, it was just in my blood!
5[on her Mortal Kombat character Sheeva] Well, let's see, it took five callbacks to finally convince the producers I was "tailor made" for the part! This was the one role I really worked hard to get. It was a great project, again I was on a cast that was absolutely phenomenal. Sheeva was a badass. But I didn't get to use my skills like I wanted to or was scripted. Things change, that was one of them. I was very disappointed when they cut out fights. Yeah, her outfit in the games was... well, let's just leave it at skimpy! No, I knew they weren't going to go that far for the live action. They wanted the younger audience and there are things you just can't do when you are trying to capture that audience.
