Kevin Bacon Connection: Daphne Rubin-Vega

Daphne Rubin-Vega

The erotic thriller Wild Things may be notorious for its steamy sex scenes, including one involving Denise Richards, Matt Damon and Neve Campbell. But we’ll remember it as the film that earned Daphne Rubin-Vega a Blockbuster Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Suspense Thriller. The Panama-born Broadway singer/actress, best known for starring in the musical Rent, portrayed hard-nosed Detective Gloria Perez, the partner of Kevin Bacon’s character Sergeant Ray Duquette.
