Actress/Model Amanda Hall is a Goddess, her dreamy blue eyes being the exquisite extension to her tempting facets. With short films making waves at this year’s Cannes, she’s certainly one of the delectable leading ladies to watch. It’s fitting that Amanda stars in “Infatuation” for she is likely to be the paramour of audiences across the board. “Infatuation” is a tale of a man named Hal and his girlfriend Beth played by Amanda where their impending marriage runs into trouble, inciting a darkness that spirals out of control. 9 mins is almost not enough to enjoy the attractive magnetism of Amanda as we would undoubtedly be clamoring for more of her.

Amanda has also appeared in indie festival favorite “Broken Gardenias” as Jesse, the fellow garden worker of the lead character Jenni, played by actress Alma Gray. She has a crush on Jesse and its short lived as she ends up moving, but her actions and the story Jesse hears about her through town after she leaves gives her the strength needed to move forward and take chances she never would have, both in life and in her love life. It’s not a very long seen part but its a great character.

Here’s a little insight on her other screen work from Amanda herself:

‘One of my favorite parts was playing Pauline Forsythe on the FOX pilot “Rogue” directed by Brett Ratner and written by Karyn Usher. It was such a wonderful experience working with such a talented cast and crew, my mother was in town so i got to bring her which was wonderful, and Brett loved her and let her watch me do my scenes from his directors chair!! she was grinning ear to ear watching me live my dream. Ricky Schroder played my husband and Julian McMahon played my brother, they were both incredible to work with.

Then I went on to film “For The Love of Nothing” which i star in, it was such a great filming experience, the director Alissa Davis is absolutely genious, I really enjoyed her personal touch on directing. Also Alex Simon the Director of Photography made everything look and feel so intense and beautiful, perfection in my eyes.’

If you’re an avid “Sons Of Anarchy” fan, remember to catch Amanda at her most sauciest as the love interest Sara in the entertaining web series “Devil’s Couriers”. It’s the MCs of the rebel motorcycle brotherhood Devil’s Couriers who bring on the funny in what has elements of comic flavor and drama.

Multi-talented and drop-dead gorgeous actress Clara Pasieka could well be one of Canada’s most buzzworthy starlets. She is undoubtedly going to be lauded as a screen darling with 2 of her features showing up at 2 renowned film festivals. First up is the Cannes selection “Maps To The Stars” directed by David Cronenberg where she plays Gretchen Voss who is one of the young stars friends with Benjie Weiss (Evan Bird). Benjie is the youngest child in the Weiss family who the film follows and her character is a supermodel/actress. This is one risqué drama with audaciously explicit dialogue and a cast led by heavy hitters Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson and John Cusack. Previously she starred in “Pretty Thing” which was shown last year at SIFF and what’s more fitting than the title itself to have her as a beguiling love interest in this poignant drama. As the beautiful Aribel, she was the one that got away. Here and now, we as fans want her to stay and continue her mesmerizing effect on a global scale. In an interview, Clara noted that she’s still known as the kid seeing how she’s in her early 20s. Her significant achievements however belies her youthfulness and she’s on a rapid rise career-wise.

I first saw her on an episode of the popular series “The Murdoch Mysteries” and adored how radiant she was in vintage garb, even if she was a murder suspect questioned by intrepid Detective Murdoch. Despite her busy schedule of attending festival galas and premieres, Clara still remembered me as her fan and that just warms the heart. Here we have a prodigious acting talent who happens to be totally ravishing and she’s still every bit down to earth. Her polite nature rings true of the affability we’ve associated with the awesome people of Canada.

Looking forward to my interview with her which should be coming up soon. She’s certainly an actress I could watch for days on end and it’s not just because she’s a blue-eyed blonde. Clara is also a writer and co-chair of the Young Emerging Actors Assembly where she’s creating content to inspire the younger set. Her current writing involves grappling with some of the complexities of multiculturalism from varying perspectives. Clara is well on her way to become a mover of minds and that makes her thoroughly fascinating.
