Personal Quote:

[talking about the hardest scene she had to do in Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)] The most difficult thing I had to do in "Hellbound" was walk down the wind tunnels with a jet engine blowing at me, keep my eyes open and look evil at the same time! There's a lot of wind in this movie . . . and blood . . . and slime . . . and gore . . . See more »
