Rosemary recently spoke with the folks from the The Gorilla Position for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On building up the Rosemary character: “Rosemary is another personality of mine, basically. I think my work has always been the best when its been over-the-top. Even with the original incarnations of the dark character. Like in the beginning with Courtney Rush, I was just more straightforward wrestling or doing comedy stuff. I didn’t particularly like myself that way, and I wanted to try something totally different.”
On being a role model for kids: “I feel like, no matter what level of public figure you are, or the notoriety you have, you have a responsibility to the people who look up to you. I find it huge that these kids look up to me as someone that they can come up to and talk to. I don’t know what it is. I feel like I almost can’t cant describe it. It’s very intangible. It’s just amazing and powerful. I can’t tell you how much energy I get from having that experience with them.”
On her rivalry with Taya Valkyrie: “We’re very different characters, but still very much in the ‘theme’ world. Both over the top, both very expressive and other-worldly: The demon and thunder goddess. To me, when you have two characters on that scale who threaten to clash, it’s a going to be a great story. So far, I think Impact has done a great job of presenting it that way, with these two larger than life figures. I hate to use a wild west cliche, but it’s almost as if the company isn’t big enough for the two of them.”
