Born on April 6, 1983 in Miami, Florida, Diora Baird has been in-if my count is correct-4 horror films. But looking at this stunner the first question should not be, “How many horror movies has she been in?” but instead the question should be “Which ones?”; that is what I am here for.
Beginning in 2006 Miss Baird appeared as Bailey in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. She did double duty in 2009 by appearing in the Adam Gierasch remake of the classic Night of the Demons as Lily and as Nadine in the horror-comedy hybrid Stan Helsing. She was last seen walking the hallowed halls of horror in the direct to video sequel 30 Days of Night: Dark Days in 2010. This should not be all the horror that this woman does; a beauty like Diora is practically molded for the genre.
Diora has also appeared in such non-genre films as Wedding Crashers (2005); My Best Friend’s Girl (2008); Hot Tub Time Machine (2010); and Beautiful Girl (2014). For now, however, she is appearing right here as the Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month for the merry month of May, 2016!
THE DIRT ON DIORA
She got into acting when her mother enrolled her in an acting class to help her overcome introversion. Later, she became vice president of her school’s Thespian Society.
She once modeled for a Guess clothing campaign.
Ranked #64 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2008 list.
QUOTES FROM THE BAIRD
“Most of the time you’re playing the crazy girl or the stripper–always the stripper! I mean, how many strippers can I play? I can do a lap dance phenomenally, and that’s not a good sign, because I’m not a stripper.”-from an interview in Stuff magazine.
” Everybody has a card that says they’re a producer. I learned very quickly that if a producer wants to have dinner with me, he doesn’t want to cast me, he wants to fuck me. If he wants to call my manager and set up a meeting, then that’s another thing.”-from an interview in Askmen magazine (2007).
“It wasn’t until in the last year and a half that I started making fun of myself and the fact that I have big boobs. I never really was comfortable with my large breasts. And I went to the plastic surgeon, and almost got a breast reduction. I didn’t do it, thankfully.”-from an interview in Playboy magazine (2004).
