If you have ever wondered how video game designers decide what characters are going to look like, the answer is pretty simple. Like most media based professions, models are key. Mortal Kombat is no exception to this rule, and now, it seems as though at least one of the characters would like to do something else in the spotlight aside from be immortalized as an awesome killing machine. To each his own, I suppose.
Kerri Branson modeled as Sonya Blade for the game in the 90′s, and even got the chance to go on a live tour with the game. Branson had been a model for a long time and not just for video games. Her career spanned swimsuits, lingerie, and some nude work, but she claims she does not regret her past. She told the Daily Herald in Chicago:
“My past has gotten me where I am today and because of that I think I’m a stronger person and I’m very capable to take this (county) position.”
The main reason Branson left the wide world of modeling was to tend to her twin sons who were born in 1997 with Cerebral Palsy.
“I am who I am, I’m not going to change for everybody,” said Branson, “If they don’t like my past and they don’t agree with it and they don’t like where I am today … don’t vote for me.”
If I lived anywhere near this county election district, I would make sure that I went to every debate, waiting for the perfect opportunity to yell “Finish Him!!” from the audience. Don’t judge me. It’s important to stay informed!
