Stars of tomorrow are certainly emerging at CANNES and MISTY UPHAM is one who is on song to steal our hearts with a series of upcoming roles. Most significant of all, she will be at CANNES walking down the red carpet with leading man Benicio Del Toro for the premiere of “Jimmy P”. Buzz is swirling around for this film that deals with loss from a Native American perspective and surely eyes are on MISTY who in the press photos can be seen in scenes with Benicio. Apparently MISTY’s character JANE has a romantic liaison with Benicio’s Jimmy P which will be talked about by many. In fact, she has been a scene stealer before in the critically acclaimed hit “Frozen River” alongside Melissa Leo and it would be fitting if she garnered the plaudits this time around. Having been nominated for best supporting actress at the Independent Spirit Awards for embodying Lila Littlewolf in “Frozen River”.
As Lila the widowed Mohawak mum looking to reclaim her son from the mother-in-law while smuggling immigrants, MISTY was a revelation and showcased how great she is at delivering on conflicting emotions. She was able to sustain the attention of audiences who must have been fascinated with the multi-layered role MISTY so successfully made believable. Slated to star with the legendary Meryl Streep in “August: Osage County,” a dark comedy based on a play, things are looking very rosy indeed. It’s a key role for MISTY as Johnna Monevata, a Cheyenne woman hired as a live-in housekeeper by the Weston family whom has demanding matriarch Violet Weston of course played by Meryl Streep. So start admiring this most graceful Native American talent certain to make waves the world over!
One of the most sought-after actresses on the planet, KATIE BOLAND is setting the film world alight and it’s inevitable that she’s going to be a future star. Just like the buzz encircling the much-discussed drama “The Master” which some say parallels the cult of Scientology, KATIE’s appearance in a dream sequence will be one to remember. While she so kindly informed me all is tight-lipped due to her signing a confidentiality agreement, KATIE is widely expected to provoke elucidation from admirers the world over. Just last year, she was chosen as one of The Toronto International Film Festival’s 2011 “Rising Stars” and her popularity is set to soar even higher. From her attractive, cherubic appeal to her penchant for taking on stirringly demanding roles (she once played an autistic girl), KATIE could be the discovery of 2012.
All this means a visit to the KATIE BOLAND OFFICIAL SITE is due as we find ourselves enthused over this wunderkind of a starlet. She’s dazzled as a druggie prostitute in “Die”, enticed our eyes in the indie flick “Daydream Nation” and bewitched as a lethal nun on TV in “Murdoch Mysteries”. Audiences are rapidly warming up to her and while she did remarked in an interview of the challenge of receiving plaudits as an actress from Canada, KATIE has proven her worth in the film industry time and time again. We are certainly fortunate to witness the rise of a special young entertainer.

Immensely Stunning is how I would describe Natalie Victoria, an ebullient sweetheart in more ways than one. One of the busiest actresses with more than 6 features in the pipeline, she’s genuinely drop dead gorgeous be it on film, print and on the red carpet. If ever that was anyone who could take over the mantle of the glamorous actresses from the golden years, Natalie would be that gal. Her dual-role as love interest and zombie bride in the hit ‘Walking Dead’ comedy “Deadheads” got her on everyone’s radar and has seen her becoming a highly sought-after talent. Granted many will be addicted to her as I’ve been over the past few months so if you have a thing for talented blondes, Natalie’s a Hot Pick…:)
What better than to see a bevy of beauties doing their part for a worthy cause! That’s right horror starlets are joining hands in show of support for the Busted Foundation in aid of women with breast cancer requiring financial support. Start Drooling at these amazing ladies:
Natalie Victoria – “Deadheads” Darling (told you she’s highly fancied).

Angelic and sexy KIMBETTE FENOL possesses the sassy factor to enliven things up both on and off set. This Filipino/Chinese/Portuguese babe who hails from Boston has been on both sides of the camera, steadily enhancing her craft. Active in a host of independent films, she’s about to excite viewers in “Early Grave”, a dark tale of vengeance. Early signs point to a film that’s generating buzz and could very well be the rise of KIMBETTE as a terror hottie. In fact, she has opened up about making her mark as a Scream Queen!

There’s no better time to give a shout to this exotic beauty who has bags of talent to fulfill her potential as a much-loved performer…:)
Love is all around in this most romantic of months and that includes friendly love as sexy cutie Marlene McKenna has so kindly shown to me. She was featured on this blog back in August 2010 which I’m sure generated avid interest and now she has a tune to get you on the dancefloor. Cut loose on her electronica-infused song “Personality” now available for download at http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/marlene-mckenna/id499967825.

No wonder Michael Fassbender was addicted to her in the explicit drama “Shame” and so will you especially since Alexandra Vino is a foxy spokesmodel for Paradise Bikinis. The blonde bombshell is considered as one of the fasting rising starlets in entertainment and she was every bit as eye-catching on her stint on the HBO series “How To Make It In America”. Steadily impressing audiences, Alexandra is headed for big things in Tinseltown. I’m eternally grateful to her for posting the article I did on her official website. Get ready to watch her shine!
Thanks to her spread in a sultry black number on the pages of FHM Magazine’s December Issue, Elizabeth Di Prinzio cements her status as one of the world’s sexiest women. The winter days may have started but here’s a young lady expected to heat things up in a hurry. She’ll captivate with her queen bee-like foxiness yet Elizabeth has a heart of gold making her doubly attractive. With appearances in a duo of thrilling horror flicks “Scary Or Die” and “The Culling”, her stock has only one way to go and that’s up!
She’s pretty in pink, legally blonde and uncannily resembles Hannah Montana; that’s taking Savannah Ostler at face value yet she’s quickly developing into an accomplished actress, singer and screenwriter. Savannah conceives the upcoming feature “Twice The Dream”, an inspirational tale of pursuing one’s goals in the midst of a tragedy and will display her vocal prowess in the drama. The fund-raising campaigh has started at INDIEGOGO so shower her with your support for Savannah is so adorably entertaining.

It’s a Carnival of Horror this weekend as the 11th Edition of Shriekfest which runs from September 29th till 2nd October returns to put the fear in you. Shriekfest founder DENISE GOSSETT has promised a Screaming Good Time as audiences will be treated to the best in independent horror and sci-fi from the world over in all its unrated glory! There’s the opening night screening of Troma Legend Lloyd Kaufman’s “The Feed”, the world premiere of retro thriller “Isle Of Dogs” and a host of bloodcurdling shorts to make your skin crawl.
Plaudits have to be bestowed upon Miss DENISE GOSSETT for generating such buzz for Shriekfest over the years and which now thrives as LA’s Most Successful & Entertaining Horror Film Festival! She’s the original ‘Kickstarter’ who celebrated horror at a time when festivals were few and far between back in 2001. As a Horror devotee, I feel blessed to be touched by such an influential figure in the genre and it’s with great pleasure to present this interview with the vivacious DENISE, a gorgeous visionary hugely deserving of the moniker as a FIRST LADY OF HORROR.
Q & A WITH HIGH PRIESTESS OF HORROR DENISE GOSSETT
1. Hi Denise. First off, Congrats on the the 11th Edition of Shriekfest Film Fest. What can audiences expect this time around and how has Shriekfest contributed to the horror scene over the years?
A: They can expect more of the same, awesome indie films from around the world…we have US film, films from Australia, England, France, Germany, Brazil, New Zealand, etc. I think Shriekfest has contributed by helping get the word out about indie horror and we’ve helped people get their projects made, distribution, agents, etc.
2. There’s an intriguing list of films guaranteed to make us Scream at Shriekfest 2011. What’s the selection process like and would it help if we were chummy with you (truthfully now!)?
A: Does not help to be chummy….actually many of my friends were rejected this year…we have over 40 judges and it’s a long, thought out process.
3. It’s amazing to see sci-fi as well as comedy features scheduled for our viewing pleasure. Why do u think it’s important to maintain that diversity even at an established horror festival?
A: It helps break up the gore, plus there are talented filmmakers in all genres.
4. Everyone adores you for your gregariously warm nature and for being an awesome Scream Queen. Tell us who have been your favorite actors and how have they inspired you?
A: Aww, you are very sweet, but I don’t really consider myself a scream queen…haven’t done enough horror for that. I love lots of actors, all your typical oscar winner actors, but I also love the indie actors as well. I’ve made some amazing friends over the years.
5. I also read that you’re also been anointed as an Indie Sex Symbol. How did that come about and in your opinion, what is the true meaning of Being Sexy?
A: Ah, Haren, that was appointed by you my friend! The true meaning of being sexy is: loving life, loving yourself, and doing what you love.
6. You are in the book “Hot & Horryifying: The First Ladies Of Horror” which is absolutely amazing. What does it mean to be held in admiration for being a mover and a shaker?
A: It blows me away, b/c I just feel like this person who wants to help and I can’t believe the love I get on a daily basis….it’s wonderful!
7. Tell us some of your most memorable moments throughout your career.
A: Working with Mel Gibson, he’s amazing, being a gun slinger in A Chestful of Blood, working with Julia Louis Dreyfus & Christina Applegate…both so great with comedic timing….I could go on and on.
And of course running Shriekfest…for all of it’s hard work, there has been lots of joy too.
8. You’re revered as one of the hardest working women and a genuine maven of horror. When Miss Denise Gossett is not drenched in blood on screen, what does she do for fun?
A: Awww…Haren, you have a way of making me feel so good….thank you! I have a 3 year old little girl and I enjoy playing with her, we go swimming, work in our garden, I also love hiking and spending time with my family and friends.
9. What are your thoughts on the impact of Social Media on entertainment and how has that impacted on the horror genre?
A: Wow…social media still blows me away….it’s allowing indie filmmakers to reach wider audiences and get their talents seen…it’s truly wonderful!
10. To end this interview on a chilling note, what is the one thing that truly scares you?
A: Losing the love of someone I love.
Thank you Haren.
Rounding off the specials on the hotties that are glaming up TIFF 2011 that’s ending in style today is the vivaciously sexy Robyn Malcolm. An esteemed actress of the stage and screen, Robyn has distinguished herself on television as well as theatre productions becoming one of New Zealand’s most respected personalities. Her solidly layered performances as the unshakable Cheryl West on “Outrageous Fortune” had even Australian audiences hooked and welcomed her with open arms. One of many priceless scenes as Cheryl involves belting her daughter square in the kisser more than once if i might add and furthermore no one can forget the time she stripped down to her bra. Befittingly in 2010, Robyn was voted Best Actress for the fifth consecutive year and Sexiest Woman for the third consecutive year in the 2010 TV Guide Best on the Box Awards…that’s a remarkable feat for any female talent regardless of geography.
Although hers is a supporting role in the audacious drama “Burning Man” which she spent a great part of a year delving into, everyone will have eyes on her. Known for laying bare the souls of the characters she plays, intimating emotional states with a penetrating resonance. At a time when the world is passionately watching the Rugby World Cup in Wellington, New Zealand, it’s great to see a KIWI actress creating buzz on the other side of the world in Canada. It is essential to speak highly of the substantial contributions a luminary such as Miss Robyn Malcolm has made in entertainment.
