Debra is a classically trained ballet dancer who turned her sights to acting after moving to Los Angeles with her family in the late 70’s. While pursuing her acting career, Debra worked as a dancer and performance artist, which, along with being a talented fire-eater and model, helped her land roles in several low-budget horror films. She quickly gained popularity as a “B-movie scream queen”, and during the 80’s and 90’s appeared in many horror genre magazines, such as Femme Fatales, Draculina, Focus, and Fangoria. Debra left acting during the mid 90’s and it wasn’t until she joined facebook in 2010 that she discovered that she had many fans who missed her. Filmmakers began to contact Debra, and she made her official comeback in 2012 with “Disciples”, followed closely by “G-String Horror”. Debra has been cast in “Llorona” and “Drive-In Massacre” which will be shooting later in 2012, and she has several other projects in the works. After working in the Market Street Cinema…”What happened to me in that place can never be explained.”
From an interview with obscurehorror.com…
Q: What do you look for when picking projects?
A: That I get to be naked and covered in blood! But I guess it just needs to be something that seems unique and original, something that is way out there. I really love over-the-top stuff and I want the roles that most actresses won’t touch with a 10 foot pole, roles that really stand out. The crazier the better. Her credits include, Black Devil Doll and Vaginal Holocaust. While working on “The G-string Horror”…“It felt like some creature had actually invaded my body.”
