What made you
get into modeling and acting?
me get into it. Hell, so many people desire to be a model or
actor, I’m just lucky to have some of the attributes it requires
to qualify (Amazon height), then the ambition and timing to have
landed some great things.
What do you
enjoy about modeling/acting?
environment is creative and an entire team pulling together for
an end product is a great thing to be a part of.
What would your
dream job be?
A good sitcom would be amazing. I love
How did you
become the face and BODY of Bayonetta?
My agency sent
me on an audition for SEGA at the G4 studios in Los Angeles. I
had to wear form fitting all-black attire, a pair of glasses and
hold a gun. I was instructed to do my best gaming vixen walk
and pick a line from the Bayonetta game to say in my best
Bayonetta imitation. What put me above the rest was that I had
actually seen the trailer for the game and knew that Bayonetta
had a particularly taunting laugh. I did the laugh. The SEGA
reps told me that was what set the bar.
How do you keep
I generally eat well and work out like a
champ! It takes a lot of effort. I hit the gym to lift
weights. I hike regularly and take yoga on the weekends. I
just started jogging to prepare for an obstacle course challenge
in April 2010 called Warrior Dash. Look it up

What did you
enjoy about Bayonetta?
I loved getting
to taunt people at the live events. It was amazing how many
people would go to each one just to see if it was still the same
girl playing Bayonetta every time.
What are three
technological things you cannot live without?
phone, my iPod and the internet.
What is your
favorite video game?
HANDS down, Rock
Band. I am a complete sucker for that game. I once sang 35
songs in a row! I was on tour. My fans needed me. LOL. When I
was working E3 in Los Angeles, every time I took a break, I
would make a bee line for the Rock Band stages and belt my heart
out. I once played drums with a group of gamers and one of the
guys noticed my badge with SEGA on it. He asked, “What do you
do for SEGA?” I responded in an English accent, “I’m Bayonetta,
love.” He nearly wet himself. I had no idea I would get that
That would be Single with a capital “S.”
What do you look
for in a guy?
A pulse and a sense of humor. Dead guys can
be funny, too. But zombies don’t tend to smell good after a
What is your
My all time fave
is “Labyrinth”. Two words: David Bowie. That package was lit
so freakin’ well. It was my introduction to a real rock star.
Who is your
Tim Curry. I’ve been a fan from the “Rocky
Horror Picture” days, to him as the devil in “Legend”, to “The
Three Musketeers.” His comedic timing and delivery style are
something I envy.
Everything! I love alternative rock, to
gangsta rap (cause I’m hard core like that), to symphonic, to
pop, to electronica…just NO country.
The stuff that tastes like heaven and holds
no actual calories so I don’t have to worry about my weight…oh,
wait, that doesn’t exist, so I guess I’ll go with Italian.
RED! Just like my hair!
“Family Guy.” I’ve actually attended a table
read and watched Seth McFarlane have a conversation with himself
as 6 different characters. It’s amazing.
Giraffes, they are tall and awkward like me!

Are there any
scoops you could give Impulse Gamer?
The-Body-of-Bayonetta, as I like to refer to myself, is working
on a new sketch comedy. As many of my fans know, I am a scream
queen and a sketch comedian. I work closely with Scream HQ, who
brought the world the irreverent and politically incorrect
movie, “Zombie Strippers.” We have developed a sexy sci-fi,
comedic webisodic called “Star Chicks.” I am calling on ALL of
my fans and supporters to check out the show and help back us so
that we can produce the first 10-13 episodes. For any amount
that you pledge, you will get great merchandise, memorabilia
and, hell, if you pledge $100 or more you get original art work
by me! $1000 or more and you get a walk-on role.
What does the
future hold for you?
gigs as Bayonetta. She really is a wonderful character to get
to play. Also, I’m hoping the best for the projects I’m working
and a productive 2010 with lots and lots of work!
Ten words or
less for your fans?
Email SEGA that
you want more of the REAL Bayonetta!

would be referring to would be
