Biography and career Edit

In 1986, Rusa was cast on the TV series G.L.O.W. (which stands for "Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling") as Lightning, the Superhero. After that, she continued wrestling on the professional wrestling circuit for several leagues in the US and Japan.

Role on 24 Edit

Rusa doubled for Elisha Cuthbert in the role of Kim Bauer during Season 1 of 24. During "Day 1: 12:00pm-1:00pm", Cuthbert was afraid of flying in a helicopter for the scene where she was rescued from the Gaines compound, so the internal shots of the chopper flying has Rusa holding onto Kiefer Sutherland during the flight. Rusa's performance was uncredited.
