#4 What’s been the most bizarre, worst and best video shoots to be a part of?
Well as I said I’’ve done a lot of standing around freezing my ass off.. people love to see all the tattoos so they make you wear very little. Which is fine, but not when its outside in December. I’’ve done some pretty shady things in the name of the video.. riding around on a big sweaty man in a thong whilst whipping him was one rather low point haha. But then there are days where you’re booked abroad for a few days for only half a days actual work and a nice big hotel room and you can just be a tourist the rest of the time!
#5 As a designer yourself, ahem… janedoelatex.com, what advice can you give to us foetus like upstarts? I hope we can be friends even if we beat you to world domination.
Well I’ve been at it for 10 years and started my own company around 8 years ago. It hasn’t been easy, and recently its been even harder, what with the scene being flooded with people “giving it a go” without any actual training or knowledge of the process. My designs are constantly being ripped off which is very frustrating. The best thing to do is just keep moving forward, stick to your own path and do whatever YOU feel most happy with. If you do it all for yourself then you cant go wrong really I think.
Oh and if you reach world domination I expect you to buy me a castle, only fair right? and a pony.
#6 What’s your album of the day?
I listen to a really random selection of music so usually have a couple of albums/artists on the go at one time. Currently still in love with ‘A Godlike Inferno’ by Ancient VVisdom, it’s what Satan listens to on his day off. Also when I’m traveling on the tube (which I hate) I always have to listen to Charles Aznavour ‘Hier Encore’ it’s literally the best thing ever to have on to beat public transport rage. One of my all time favorite albums is ‘Grace’ by Jeff Buckley, and if I’m needing something a bit more heavy I love my husbands album ‘Grave Times’ by The Defiled. Oh and still break out ‘Floodland’ by Sisters of Mercy all the time too.
#7 We think you did a pretty good job of knocking our pal Scroobius Pip down while playing him in the Let ‘Em Come video. What fighting skills do you have tho? Did that experience teach you anything; have you since become a ninja? What female actress/character would you take inspiration from for next time?
Hah, thanks very much – well i used to do fencing, which I loved, so I can probably do some damage with a sword. I also wear a lot of heavy jewelry and high pointy heels, I’m not a violent person but its nice to know you’re well armed at all times.
And yes, I now am only answering to the name Ninja Kate.
As for inspiration… maybe Divine beating her child with a car antenna from Female Trouble.. haha
