Abimelech would go on to a murderous career including the killing of all seventy of his brothers in one day. His birth by Gideon’s concubine receives only mention in passing, Kevissimo thought it important to depict his beginningas violent as his life. He chose Rosie, a model and friend to set the scene, Rosie brought to life the life the frentic fever of the eventby taking shears to her hair chopping it off as she collapsed into the arms of the other actress.
