There were a few things that saved my ass as a pretty troubled teenager. Those things were Art- Animals- Music and Trees. They were my ‘Gods’ in a swamp of Force fed religion (I was raised in a convent from age 5) 🍃 I probably would have gone to Art school or studied to be a Vet had I not become a professional Rascal and been hijacked (fairly willingly) by the Orcs, Gremlins, Storm Troopers and c/o…. but the journey is the journey and somehow I’m still alive…… Sooooo……I’m taking this ‘quarantine’ moment and I’m renaming it ‘hibernation rehab’. 🍃 This ‘Meditation’ thing thats been batted around always manages to evade me and gets my knickers in a twist. Right up there with the word ‘God’. 🍃 So here, while drawing and painting I guess I am ‘meditating’ in my way. Listening to good music. I watch the trees and the birds and I find my ‘God’ in them, and sometimes, when I put the weapons down, from time to time, a little peace…. 🍃 and I hope perhaps along the way….at some point….. I might even catch a glimmer of the 14 year old girl I left behind…………Perhaps.. #RehabInTheTimeOfCovid 🎨 #TimeToHeal #TheGreatRemembering 🍃 #OmShantiMassive

Rhona grew up wanting to become a model, and because of that followed a strict diet and played several sports while attending elementary school. Her parents divorced when she was eight and she was sent to a boarding school from which she was expelled, and then to another from which she was expelled as well. Rhona began dreaming about becoming an actress when she was nine, and was subsequently a member of her high school’s drama club, appearing in most of the plays performed there.

She was noticed by a modelling scout when she was 16, and since it was obvious that her grades were getting worse, when she left school it wasn’t difficult to by-pass college and pursue her career as a model.

Career as a model and singer

Rhona launched her modeling career in 1994, and by 2001, the magazine “Maxim” placed her #46 on their list of 100 hottest women. Rhona is best known for being the model for the character Lara Croft in the video games “Tomb Raider” from 2003 to 2007, succeeding Angelina Jolie who modeled for Lara Croft from 2001 to 2003. Rhona has recently been invited to model as Executive Officer Kelly in the upcoming multi-player space simulator game “Star Citizen”.

Rhona launched her singing career in 1997 with the release of her single “Getting Naked”, while her debut album – produced by Dave Stewart and entitled “Come Alive” – came out in 1998. In the following year, Rhona released her second album “Female Icon”.

Quotes

#Quote
1You have to be content with who you are on a day-to-day basis.
2Her role model: Susan Sarandon. She is definitely someone that I am always enchanted to see. She has so enjoyed who she is and has gone for it; she has such an amazing career. I think that she is strong and confident and political and sexual and sensual; all of these things. - Jezebel Magazine.
3On being an actor: It's cathartic and always an inspiration. It gives you an opportunity to explore different sides of yourself, or human nature, psychology, history, the future, the past and the present. It's like going to school every single day. You are always interacting with people. You always have your senses wide open.
4Someone can present you with a choreographed routine, whether it's with swords or with fists, and you can replicate that, but it comes down to attitude. And that can't be taught. - H Magazine.
5It's an unusual job. It's like you put on another skin and take it off, and you get back into your own skin, and there is that person. - on acting as a profession.
6I can't sit still. That's why I'm very difficult in a relationship. Men get jealous of me traveling - they don't understand that just because I disappear on my own doesn't mean I'm going to shag someone else.

"She came to pick her up from school and I remember meeting her and I thought she was such an extraordinary woman. She had this resonance about her. I said, 'What does your mummy do?' and I logged it away" - H Magazine.
2Mitra was ranked #46 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2001.
3Her acting role model is Susan Sarandon.
4First actress to serve as an original model for Eidos Interactive's Lara Croft (Tomb Raider).
5She is the daughter of Nora (Downey), who is of Irish origin, and Anthony Mitra, who is of Bengali Indian and English descent. They divorced in 1984.
6Went to Roedean, an all-girls' school in Brighton, East Sussex, but was expelled from it, then from another boarding school. According to Rhona, "I was kicked out for taking a sixth-former's car and driving it down to the local boys' school. I was only 14. I left stuffing under my bedsheets but one of my friends told on me and the headmistress tracked me down. They put me in this room with bars on the windows to punish me. I was stuck in there for a whole week with just a rosary for comfort, having my dinner brought in on trays. The only time I got out was to say confession to the school priest. After that, they booted me out. Then at the next school the other girls used to blame me whenever they got caught for something, so all the parents wrote in and said they didn't want me at the school. I crammed my exams in London and did fine."
