Fantastic Femmes--Natalie Mendoza

A lovely familar face to genre fans due to ongoing roles on Beastmaster and Farscape, Natalie Jackson Mendoza survived The Descent and made it thru most of the sequel film, but the perils of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark have done her in!
She had already been injured at the production's very first preview performance, but continued like a trouper until December 20th, when fellow performer  Christopher Tierney suffered major injury. At that point, she said "Enough", and despite her extensive conceptual work on the look and movement of the original character Arachne, decided to leave the problem-plagued production.
Genre Appearances include:
The Descent / The Descent 2 (Juno Kaplan)
Farscape (Lishala)
BeastMaster (Kyra)

Check out...
Oddly enough, there are NO fanpages for this talented actress!
If you know of one, e-mail me and I'll update this entry!
The role of Archana in Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will be assumed by America Olivo. Presuming she survives, we'll cover her in a future Fantastic Femmes entry!
