Personal Quote:

[talking about her character in Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)} I hope you understand Julia's reasons for being an unpleasant character, because you see the depths she's prepared to plumb for love. She's a great deal nastier this time, and if anybody sympathizes with her, I'm doing something wrong. I really want everybody to hate me. See more »

Trivia:
