Lola, like all of our actors, was found on MySpace. The goal was to find real people who befit our imagination exactly and ask them to model the characters. If she looks familiar, it might be because she has appeared in in various television commercials and magazine editorials. Recently she appeared during the Superbowl and the Oscars in a Mastercard commercial! Look for her this month in Jalousse magazine. Below I asked her some questions to get a quick peek into this fantastic cameleon-like actress!

To my surprise, we are one in the same person. I pray I am able to give her what she needs most from me. And that is honesty.
Women in games are usually sexy and fierce, what other types of characters would you like to see portrayed? Is there one female character from history or fiction you would like to see turned into a video game?
I'd love to see an electronic techy portrayed as sexy... Read the rest of this interview and see more pics at www.thewind.tv/news
