Since then, she’s started streaming on Twitch under the name ‘BlueFille,‘ and now broadcasts with some of the s most prominent entertainers in the streaming world like Valkyrae, Sykkuno, and Pokimane.
Van Dien recently explained that she prefers to focus on Twitch streaming over acting after being given an inappropriate proposition from a film producer, saying, “With streaming, I get to choose who I hang out with, who I talk to, etc.”

According to Van Dien, she likes Twitch because it’s not scripted and she has “full, total control over what I’m doing, what I’m saying, who I’m talking to, hanging out with.”
“I love both [acting and streaming],” she said. “I hope to find a good medium between both worlds.”

That being said, she’s game to combine the two, joking that she’d love to see a Twitch sitcom with some of the site’s top talent.
“I love streaming with Pokimane and Disguised Toast, Valkyrae, Sykkuno, Tarik. Ah, god, I love all of my streaming friends so much! When I build a squad for a lobby, it feels like I’m casting my own thing. I know who’s gonna act like what.”
“It does feel like a TV show with different characters. But more like a sitcom. Not a sci-fi thriller. Yeah, it feels like a sitcom. That’s so cool. There’s definitely character development with streaming, and there’s relationship development, friendship development.”

“Wow, I really love comparing it to a sitcom. We should really have a sitcom of streamers now! You know, where we have the local pub we all go to and just sit and talk.”
While it doesn’t look like a steamer sitcom is in the works currently, a few big streamers are making headway into Hollywood very soon, with Valkyrae and iiTzTimmy set to star in Mark Wahlberg’s upcoming film ‘The Family Plan.’
