Effortlessly enigmatic, blue-eyed beauty Katie Carpenter is on course to garner our attention. This November is truly a boon for fans like me with the deluge of actresses dazzling up our world. Katie has an allure very much along the lines of someone like Rachel Weisz who she bears a certain cherubic resemblance with hints of Camilla Belle. This week, she can be seen in a supporting role in the horror short “Disengaged” which is screening at the NYC Horror film festival on Nov 13. It’s re-inventing the wheel of what we know about zombie features with a female lone survivor having to pick things up after a mysterious plague overwhelms her town. Katie has also worked on a psychological thriller “The Sharp Files” earlier this year playing a disturbed college student with a sex addiction. Yet another intriguing look at how an obsession affects the very fabric of our lives.

Here’s some juicy updates from Katie:

I’ve done some local commercials, like for Title Boxing in Charlotte, NC. I’ve also modeled for brands like the American Beverage Association and Gorilla Glue.

I was very lucky to be selected as an actress for Shane Hurlbut’s Illumination Tour. Last month, I acted in a workshop led by him where we re-created a scene from Crazy/Beautiful. Shane was the Cinematographer for the movie, as well as Drumline, Need for Speed, and Terminator Salvation. He said that I had an “impressive performance,” and I could “deliver emotion.”

I love acting and modeling and film. Currently, I’m working as the Assistant Costume Designer on an Independent Feature Film being shot in Arkansas and North Carolina. I’ve worked with clothes and costumes for a while now.. I find it’s a great artistic outlet for me, alongside my acting. I’m able to learn from both of them, not to mention network with other industry professionals! I was the Wardroe Stylist for this Pepsi/Panthers commercial.

Katie is a talent who’s not afraid to get tough onscreen having worked on a 48 Hour film project in which she played the lead role. It was a “Femme Fatale” action kind of movie where she had to do a lot of stunts and had the bruises to prove it!! In 2013, she received the Best Actress Award for the dark comedy “Fruits of Her Labor”. Check out her eye-catching performance in this twisted of tales (below):

The indie genre is where we’re becoming attuned to up and coming actresses with Katie being an appealing find. Remember to visit the KATIE CARPENTER OFFICIAL SITE for more about this lovely gal.

Danish actress Pernille Trojgaard is one to be adored on account of her delectable smile and radiance. One can certainly get lost in her ravishing blue eyes and she can be seen in 2 features at Action On Film Festival that’s now ongoing. This is a must-see film fest due to its sheer number of interesting features and of course the beautiful female cast that’s surely dazzling them up. First up is her role in “Nothing Like The Sun” a vampire short that tells of a vampire couple at a crossroads when one of them wants to be human once more. The second sees her as a ‘Mother Of Dragons’ conjurer of sorts who unleashes fire breathing dragons, the Nazi’s secret weapon against the Allies during a fictional time in World War 2.

While Pernille has been enchanting the indie world, her most notable work has been on the television series “Vegas”. As like all the women of the 1960s, Pernille is every bit a sweetheart in her role as Secretary Hilde. Check out her reel: https://vimeo.com/64509678 for some of her scenes from “Vegas”. She’s also excelled on the dramatic front having played a battered wife in “Half Way Home” where her character Kathryn still loves her husband despite the abuse. Her willingness to extend herself in scenes that’s uncomfortable at times is the mark of the range she has. Pernille did attend The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. There is no better time than now to get to know a beautiful face like Pernille and she’s going to be an exciting prospect indeed.
