Born in Iowa, Shea made a bolt for NYC when she was still a teen to model and act. One to watch for, Shea was recently featured on the cover of Blink Magazine and is appearing in her first commercial at a TV near you (Pepsid AC - ha!). Check out her feedback below!
What is the first video game you played and how old were you?
I think it must have been that Sonic the Hedgehog game on the Sega system. I was young - must have been ten or so? Really can't remember - my uncle had it around and I got obsessed.
Tell us a bit about yourself and describe what contribution you make to THE WIND.
I'm a cannot replace Wind character! Ha! I live in Brooklyn and spend most of my time wishing I was in Asia.
How do you feel about women and gaming? Is this a medium that's ignored you, just hasn't figured it out yet or is something else...?
It's a medium where women are played by characters dressed to reveal or just some damsel in distress...right? That might be why gamers are typically men. Seems a little old fashioned.
Share a recent piece of music, film, artwork or book that's inspired you creatively. What was the end result?
Let the Right One In - mad visuals - Swedish, 12 year old vampire film, been reading a lot of Tao Lin lately, listening to whatever my friends throw at me. Been writing shorter stories. Kind of want to start a band.
Where will you be in 5 years?
That is a good question my parents would love to know the answer to. I'm just taking it one day at a time. I'll hopefully still be here along with the rest of the world.
Bonus question: Would you rather jump a giant mushroom, battle an evil wizard, search for hidden treasure, pilot a starship or do online strip poker?
I always win at strip poker because I wear so many layers. But I guess hidden treasure sounds kind of fun?
