Random Time! - Actress behind "Karen" Switch meme embraces the moniker

The actress who Nintendo fans know as Karen from the Switch trailer is more than happy to embrace her life as a meme. She uses the hashtag #nintendokaren on some of her Instagram posts, and also her bio lists her as "formerly nintendo karen". Pretty great to see she took the attention in stride!

I can only imagine what the conversation was like after the shoot was over.

"Ma'am, you may get out of that outfit and return to yo-"

"No. This is mine now."

It wasn't a mean meme, and it gives her visibility.
Also, "shame"? That outfit fit her very well, no shame to have by buying it for personal use. :P

Karen is the best. I'm glad she's got a good mood about it. Heaven knows that having the internet's attention isn't frequently a positive experience.

I do wonder if she owns a Switch now.

I really hope she does, and that she brings it to every party she goes to!

Her name isn't really Karen?!

She is actually posting in the sub reddit "Nintendo Karen" since... today.
She actually didn't have any social network presence before, and just started because someone made her realize it would help her getting acting gigs.
She's actually answering questions (DK Country is her favorite game because of the music) and having pretty chill conversations with the community.
Ironically, her reddit handke is fakenintendokaren. But she's legit. xD

So we do know who she is now. That's awesome! I'm gonna follow her and see what she puts out, Nintendo-related, in the future Smile

EDIT: She seems to have a genuinely fun/lovely/playful personality with her fans too! I love it! I hope creeps don't put her off from having an internet presence.

I'm surprised it took her so long to embrace her popularity. The Karen thing was huge. She should have made an account immediately.

Looking at her instagram, seems to me that she had two other filming projects being ran in tandem with the Nintendo shoot. Would make sense why she didn't bother having an account for it.

On Reddit, she said she's shy but then she realized or was told that having social media and being known as "Karen" might help her with acting gigs.
