Rebecca also thoroughly enjoyed playing the coy and deadly Sophia in director Kiff Scholl’s hilarious 60’s spy spoof ‘Scream of the Bikini,’ and director Insung Hwang’s tragic drama ‘Justify’ in which she stars as Abby Lombard, a troubled dominatrix on a mission to avenge her father’s gruesome murder.

Rebecca also works behind the camera as a first assistant director. Which, admittedly, is a little odd, the whole actress/AD thing. But why pigeonhole a gal?
