ME: Hi Ginny!
VH: Hi Dyl.
ME: How's things?
ME: I'm glad
to hear it. So what have you been up to since you left Farscape?
VH: Well, I've
been tremendously busy <dazzling smile> I've been doing
some stage work in Sydney and Los Angeles, and when the cash
flow ever gets too low, I do a bit of lapdancing on the side.
Cool. Are you any good? <nods>
and decidedly arousing lap dance> What do you think?
appreciative> Thought thing not working at moment.
VH: Well, don't
worry. I like to talk.
VH: I've been
doing some painting in my spare time as well. Nothing serious,
just some sketching. A few portraits, nothing special. Ya know!
VH: I've done
some of the rest of the cast.
VH: Oh yes!
ME: Can I have
VH: Well, you
can buy them?
ME: Buy? How
much are we talking here?
VH: There are
other ways to pay. <smiles innocently>
a good looking young man. I'm sure you have many ways to pay.
And to please.
Yes...I guess...um...so, the interview. How did you first get
involved with Farscape?
her legs> Well, I've known Anthony Simcoe for yonks! We used
to work on a construction site in Melbourne together, and when
he got the part of D'Argo, he put a good word in for me with
Rockne and Brian.
ME: Did you
have to audition?
VH: Oh definitely!
<grins> It was very...demanding.
VH: Do I impress
out mouthful of cola> Yes, Ginny. Very much so. More than
you could possibly imagine.
VH: Good, well
there you go.
ME: Now you
left shortly after season 3 began. Some say it was due to a reaction
to the blue make-up Zhaan had to wear. Care to shed any light
on this for us?
so wrong! I don't know how these rumours get started! Have you
heard the one about me and Paul Goddard?
ME: Um, no.
VH: Well, lets
just say Paul is a lovely man, but there is no way I would ever
let him dress me up like that!
ME: Dress up?
and then sings> I'm a Barbie Girl! In a Barbie world!
ME: Oh, I see.
You wouldn't still have the, um, costume, would you?
VH: Just so
happens that I do.
ME: Well, that's
good, because seeing as you are out of work at the moment-
VH: Don't forget
ME: How could
I? But seriously, have you any plans to continue in television
VH: Well, I've
had offers, but I'm just taking my time at the moment, checking
out a few things. I don't want to jump straight into anything.
ME: I would
have thought an actress as talented, and beguiling as you would
have been flooded with offers.
Why, thank you! Flattery will get you everywhere.
ME: I bloody
well hope so!
if it wasn't the make-up, why did you leave?
VH: Yep. I
hate the stuff. Gives me the willies.
ME: Lucky cheese.
VH: Well, there
was an incident when I was a child. An uncle left some cheese
in my crib, I swallowed it and nearly choked to death.
ME: Oh no!
VH: Thank you.
Anyway, ever since then I've been terrified of cheese, particularly
ME: Okay, but
how exactly did this lead to you leaving Farscape?
VH: Well, it
was all Lani's fault, though I can't really blame him.
ME: Lani? I
find that hard to believe. He seems such a nice man.
VH: He is!
But he has a problem.
ME: He does?
VH: Yep. Male
He's so hirsute.
her head> A wig, I'm afraid. Poor man.
ME: Okay, but
VH: I know.
It does sound odd, but its quite simple really. Lani does not
believe in conventional medicine. He prefers the more 'mystical'
methods. He sees a Dr. Mellowbone every week, and Mellowbone
suggested that if he were to imbibe sixty-eight grams of camembert
every day, his hair loss problem would come to an end.
taking the piss right?
VH: I can prove
it. <delves into bag and pulls out photos and shows them to
VH: So, we
had a conflict of interest. And seeing as Lani has connections
in the Sydney underworld, I never stood a chance.
a real shame. But to be honest, I never really liked Zhaan. 'Cept
when she was naked, of course.
VH: She did
that a lot!
ME: So, how
I am so much more comfortable sans clothes.
ME: Wow, me
VH: Tell you
what, why don't I give you my room number, and maybe you can
come up and see for yourself.
to Bob who's taking the notes> Bob. Piss off!
