play a cop

I loved wearing the police uniform and beating up the goons. The film’s opening scene has me arriving in the jeep and beating up 20 muscular men, that’s what motivated me to do this film. You won’t see me in a normal costume in this film. I either sport the attire of cabaret dancer, a fairy suit or a bikini; it was exciting for me to play these different roles instead of playing a single role as the girl next door.”
