13 More Fun Facts About Rhiannon Irons

Greetings gentle readers,

You asked and I delivered.  Here is more information on the tantalizing temptress of the written word.


13) Didn't have any female role models growing up until she saw the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Rhiannon was hooked and even began martial arts training to be like her idol, Sarah Michelle Gellar.

12) Attended a two high school dances as Buffy.  The first dance saw her boyfriend at the time go as Angel.  The second dance, her boyfriend at the time (which was me) went as Spike.  Both times, Rhiannon had her wooden stake confiscated by the teachers.

11) Want to know what perfume Rhiannon likes?  She is partial to feminine scents and often wears Fantasy by Britney Spears or Glow by J.Lo.  She also likes Code for Women by Armani and Euphoria by Calvin Klein.

10) Fell in love with Jeremy Irons when she was 8 years old after her first viewing of The Lion King.  Her love of him as an actor prompted her to pay homage to him with a tattoo of Scar.

9) Often responds to the question "Guess what?" with the line "I despise guessing games."

8) Loves video games.  Yes, you read that right.  Rhiannon Irons is a gaming nut.  She can spend up to 16 hours in a row playing everything from Resident Evil to Mario to Bloody Roar and Pac Man.  Her favorite games are Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds, Street Fighter, Tomb Raider and The Sims 2.

7) Out of the Batman series, Rhiannon loves Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) because she feels like Gotham City lives up to its name under Tim Burton's direction and that Michael Keaton was destined to be Bruce Wayne. 

6) Sees fear as a sign of weakness.  What scares Rhiannon?  Spiders, heights, snakes, needles and clowns.

5) Uses humour as a defence.  She says, quote, "If I can make people laugh, then maybe what's happening at that particular moment won't seem so bad."

4) Her nickname is Rei (pronounced Ray) which she got in high school because of her love of Sailor Moon.  Rhiannon says, quote, "There was a group of girls, and we were all Sailor Moon fans.  Each of our personalities matched that of a Sailor Scout.  My personality matched Mars who's actual name was Rei Hino.  Every since then, Rei has just stuck."  It is pure coincidence that Rei also happens to be her initials - Rhiannon Elizabeth Irons.

3) Her favorite color is purple but she also loves green, blue, black, yellow and pink.

2) Rhiannon can mask every emotion except anger.  When she angry, you will know.

1) When she's having a nightmare, Rhiannon will reach for a teddy bear known as Bear.  She says, quote, "Bear is a protector.  I've had him since I was a baby and whenever something bad happens in my dreams, I hold Bear and he enters my dreams, becoming this huge, towering white bear that scares away the bad things chasing me."  To this day, she still uses him to combat evil nightmares or when she's feeling scared of something.
