I know next to nothing about July Scream Queen Sophie Monk except to say that she’s blonde and hot. Born December 14, 1979 in London, England in the United Kingdom, she has four genre films to her credit including her debut, the TV movie Monster! in 1999. It would be ten years before she would return to horror with both The Hills Run Red and Life Blood in 2009. She returns to gore once again with the remake of Herschel Gordon Lewis’ 1963 classic Blood Feast coming in 2016.
Without further adieu let us welcome Sophie Monk as the Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month for July, 2016.
THE FACTS ON SOPHIE MONK
She was born in England but moved to Queensland, Australia when she was little.
Was selected to be part of ‘Bardot’ after competing against over 2000 ambitious girls on national television.
“I don’t understand anyone thinking I’m sexy at all. I don’t get it because, growing up as a kid, I wasn’t. I was like a dork, fat, so for me it’s really weird. I became famous in Australia when I was 18, and I was still a little bit chubby.”
“When I was younger, I was like, ‘I want to be in Playboy.’ My mum was a Playmate.”
“I definitely don’t Google myself, because I get paparazzi’d every day. You’re bound to have something happen and someone mean writes something. There’s no power. You don’t know who they are, and they’re behind the computer. Just don’t read it.”
