Personal Quote:

[about Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)] I think that "Hellraiser II" will be . . . I think "worst" is the wrong word. "Better" in the sense that we use better special effects, more evil, more disgusting, more blood . . . this is Hellraiser (1987) plus. See more »

Trivia:

Was a wrestling champion in her youth and went on to be the first woman to hold a win over a male adversary, on a wrestling championship in Quebec, 1975. Curiously, the man she beat was actor William Hope, with whom she would star years later in Hellbound Hellraiser 2. See more »
