Bianco has posed for painters Christian Furr[1] and Peregrine Heathcote.[2]

Bianco's feature films parts include Burlesque Fairytales, in which she played "Mother" in one of the tales. She also appeared in Chemical Wedding, Dead Man Running, The Big I Am, and The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power. Bianco appeared as the character Ros, a prostitute in King's Landing, in the HBO series Game of Thrones. She first appeared in the series premiere "Winter Is Coming", returning for 13 more episodes, often in the show's "sexposition" scenes,[3][4] before her character is murdered in the season 3 episode "The Climb".[5]

Personal life[edit]

In February 2021, Bianco accused musician Marilyn Manson of physically abusing her during their relationship in 2011, after she had split from her husband.[7] In April 2021, Bianco sued Manson for sexual assault, human trafficking, and abuse. Bianco alleged that she was given drugs and alcohol, and also subjected to threats of violence and rape.[8] Bianco also alleged that Manson tied her to a prayer kneeler, beat her with a whip, and raped her.[9][10][11] Marilyn Manson responded to Bianco through his attorney, stating that Bianco's allegations were "provably false".[12][10] They reached an out-of-court settlement in January 2023, with the terms of agreement not disclosed.[13]
