Haven’t you always secretly wanted to see Lara Croft and Nathan Drake get together?? Well I helped make it happen! Loved being asked by the insanely talented Woody Tondorf to play LARA CROFT (british accent and all) in his awesome series Dr. 1Up on Machinima Prime. Had so much fun shooting with the gang last year (and directed by the brilliant Yuri Baranovsky). Watch the whole series — it’s hilarious! Fingers crossed for a season 2. x

I have wanted to tackle some ‘professional’ type roles, but little did I know that I would be playing a lawyer opposite Jason Lee and Brian Dennehy! I was cast as the evil lawyer Ms. Thomason on the pilot of COCKED, an original Amazon Studios dramedy pilot about the gun industry — written by Sam Shaw (Manhattan) and Samuel Baum (Lie to Me). It didn’t get picked up unfortunately but it was a fantastic experience.
