But mom, I love it. The prize money would more than pay for the parts they need.

Today we celebrate Michonne Bourriague at her 37th birthday (born 1978)

Michonne Bourriague was born in Nevada, USA and played Aurra Sing in Attack of the Clones. That small part was one of her first job as model. George Lucas said to her “I’m going to make a star out of you in three seconds.”and he did. She spent six hours in the makeup chair and four hours to get it all off.

Aurra Sing is a bounty hunter seen briefly during the Bounta Eve Pod Race on Tatooine.

The character of Aurra Sing was first conceived in a sketch labeled “Babe Fett” by Lucasfilm’s Doug Chiang. Chiang had made the sketch as a result of George Lucas’ request to have more characters fill out the podracing sequence in The Phantom Menace.
