Blanche diary
Oh, how I love this war! The aromas! The sweet roasting of flesh, and the exquisite nasal burn of sulfur. The air ripe with the moans of defeat, the bellowings of victory! Such drama, and all so real. This, this is what the theater can never be, this is life!
― Mlle Blanche de Glace[src]

Mlle[sic] Blanche de Glace (often referred to as the Actress) is one of the playable characters in BioShock 2 Multiplayer. She speaks with a French accent. Blanche was the eighth character to be revealed in the Cult of Rapture's Faces of Rapture's Civil War, and is a bonus unlockable character.

"Mlle Blanche de Glace is an internationally acclaimed actress of rich emotional depth. She arrived in Rapture eager to captivate a new audience. A passionate woman with a history of torrid love affairs, she searches for a partner who can match her intensity and satisfy her appetites, but has yet to find one. She oscillates between periods of extreme reclusion, shunning all personal interaction, and times of exceptional sociability, when her hunger for contact seems insatiable."

Before Splicing.

Blanche worked as a famous actress for many years, and it became a big part of her life. However, when the theaters closed following the 1958 New Year's Eve Riots, Blanche becomes miserable and lonely, which leads her to splicing, believing it will help her to "live like the others… in ignorance". Blanche soon finds herself participating in the Civil War, stating that this is real life, and that the theater was never as exciting.

Blanche was an active participator in the civil war, and as she spliced she lost grip of reality. The actress sees the war zone as a play, believing that the enemies are other actors or fans and the Big Daddy to be "her knight", a worthy opponent. Much like Buck Raleigh, she doesn't seem to have any interest in the Little Sister, except for getting a reward from helping her.

Melle blanche de glace

Blanche's pre-spliced model.

Before SplicingEdit


As an upper class actress, Blanche's appearance is heavily based on Hollywood actresses from that era. She wears a steel blue, strapless dress, with eggplant colored opera length gloves. Her shoes are open toed high heels in a similar dark purple shade and, in typical starlit style, the ensemble is finished with a brown fur boa. Her necklace consists of a silver chain with a dark red jewel. She also possesses two diamond earrings. Her long strawberry blonde hair is wavy and kept back past her shoulders. A kitchen carving knife can be used as her personal melee weapon.

After SplicingEdit

Blanche's participation in the violence of the war and her ADAM abuse and have left her resembling a horror movie monster. Before her splicing addiction started, Blanche's intentions were to improve her singing voice and to become more beautiful,[1] as well as to deal with her social isolation.[2] Her once regal ensemble has been obliterated thanks to her experience as a product tester in the Home Consumer Rewards Program: her dress is torn up to her knees, she has holes in her left glove, and her right has begun to slip off. She has lost her fur, necklace, earrings, shoes, and, most distressingly, a few teeth. The previously statuesque actress now sports an unnaturally narrow hourglass waist and slightly sagging breasts. Her rich, radiant hair has mostly fallen out around her scalp, a deep cut across her hairline has been stapled shut, and her eyes appear sunken and dark. Her feet, legs, and arms are cut, but they're nothing compared to the hideous Glasgow Smile on the right side of her face which she has been stapled closed. More staples crudely hold a huge open wound on her chest. A bandage can be seen above the cut and she has growths appearing on her right shoulder and neck from splicing her voice.

Behind the ScenesEdit


The actresses, Blanche de Glace and Rita Hayworth.

  • Blanche's character appearance is based off Hollywood actress Rita Hayworth. The photo of Rita Hayworth used as a reference for Blanche's concept art was originally taken for the 1946 film Gilda, staring Hayworth.[3]
  • Much of her character was re-purposed from Ava Tate.
  • Mlle Blanche de Glace means "Miss White Ice" or "Miss White of Ice" in French. Blanche is her first name, but "de Glace" is not a common French name so it may be a stage name. Mlle is short for Mademoiselle.
  • Deco Devolution: The Art of BioShock 2 shows that her nickname was once "Starlet."
  • Like most Splicers in the BioShock series, the Splicers in BioShock 2 Multiplayer were given "Before Splicing" cartoon characters. Blanche's character is the only one not seen in-game. It is only seen in the BioShock 2 Multiplayer theme for PlayStation 3, replacing the "Friends" icon.
  • On the official BioShock 2 page, in the Kashmir Restaurant section, you can find several figurines of multiplayer characters. There, Blanche has an alternate voice that can be heard by clicking on these figurines. The "Mlle" before her name is also wrongly shortened to "Mile".
  • Her in-game Spliced model wears two gloves, but when the player controls her, she sports only one.


  1. Deco Devolution: The Art of BioShock 2, Citizen of Rapture section, page 44: "When we started splicing them, we chose their deformities based on each character's personality. In the actress's case, she wanted to sing better and be more beautiful. In the fisherman's case, he'd be better at trolling the deep sea looking for junk and treasure and the odd fish. They are not as deformed as BioShock characters might have been because they haven't been splicing for as long, but they show glimpses of where they are going." - Mat Trembley
