Bianca Hunter at Days of the Dead Chicago 2015

Actress Bianca Hunter has been performing most of her life.  At the age of three, she had an uncredited role in Serpico.  Several years later, in 1986, she appeared in Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach" music video. When she was 18, she appeared in the wedding scene in Goodfellas, but was cut from the final edit.  She has acted steadily since and is perhaps best known for her role in Bad Lieutenant.
I had the pleasure of meeting Hunter at Days of the Dead a few years ago.  I talked to her a bit about her role in The Fighter, a movie about boxer "Irish" Micky Ward and his brother who helped train him.  It was a very underrated movie, especially enjoyable to sports fans.  Of course most fans at DotD knew her more from Bad Lieutenant, but Hunter gladly talked about all of her roles.
You can follow Bianca Hunter on Facebook and also @BiancaHunterNYC on twitter.  The next DotD is May 18-20 in Charlotte, NC and you can get news, info and updates at
Bianca Hunter and me in Schaumburg, IL-November 2015.
