2. Feminist Endeavours

Viva has been very vocal about her passion for women issues. She has worked with various non-profit organizations and spoken at several UN Women conferences. She has worked tirelessly especially in her field to highlight and bring to public focus several women issues. She recently did a film “MilkShake Girls” that brings to the fore the epidemic of sex trafficking in the United States.

In 2014, Viva and her childhood friend – Victoria Khroundina created a blog – SheRa Mag. It is a pop culture and all “things girly” online platform that represents the many shades of female experience especially with their perceived misrepresentations of women in the media.

3. Food, Exercise, and Beauty Routine

Viva Bianca once revealed in an interview that her greatest weakness is food. She has a particular bias for brown rice and bread. She balances it by eating loads of vegetables, fish, and tofu. Some of her favorites foods are yogurt, broccolini, rice milk, strawberries, pumpkin, carrots, and bok-choy.

One wonders how she has been able to maintain her body with her weakness. She has revealed that she also does lots of exercises and loves Yoga which helps with strength, flexibility, and endurance. She believes it is also a way to keep in touch with one’s quiet space inside which is important especially for women. The Aussie actress believes the best way to stay beautiful is to stay dehydrated on the outside and inside. She uses skin products that are free of oil and stays hydrated.

4. Her Role in Spartacus

Viva admits that she has always been embarrassed about her role as Ilithyia in the Spartacus series. She thinks the character is unbearably evil, dangerous and outrageous. While she enjoyed playing the role, it was a very complex character which she grew more scared of as the show progressed.

5. Physical Attributes
