Another recognizable breakthrough on behalf of Mortal Kombat was the full use of digitized actors to portray characters. Although the original installment was made up of friends and co-workers of the games designers, following sequels included legitimate Chicago-based actors and models on board to portray heroes and villains alike, as the games development headquarters rested right there in The Windy City. Kerry Hoskins, the real life Sonya Blade, had been a popular Playboy catalog model, garnering her a spot on the MK roster. Lia Montelongo, who portrays the Outworld Queen Sindel, did her share of body sculpting competitions and appeared in the thriller Shower of Blood. John Turk, the most famous face of Sub-Zero, appeared in Foxs drama Prison Break and, most recently, as a brute thug who tries to take down Batman in The Dark Knight.
