Ellen Hollman says she will never get cast as the girl next door. And that’s probably because she thinks flying armbars are rad, knows how to use reverse-double daggers, and convinces studio execs into letting her do her own stunts.
Ellen Hollman says she began beating up boys on the playground as a child and never stopped. The stunning blonde, who starred as Saxa in two seasons of the Starz hit show Spartacus, proudly stated to MMAmania.com that she will “never get cast as the girl next door.”
“If I keep my mouth shut and I just blankly stare I’m sure people can buy it for a second, but it’s just too much tenacity that comes through I suppose,” she said.
In her latest role, Hollman, 31, stars as Valina, in Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power. Released by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment earlier this year, the movie is littered with MMA stars past and present and also a former WWE Divas champion.
