ScreamFest LA Spotlight: Indie Princess Maritza Brikisak

 alt=  alt=

To be a fan of horror is gratifying especially when the women involved are as delightful and fascinating such as the actress MARITZA BRIKISAK. It’s always a viewing pleasure to watch a beautiful woman transform herself into numerous incarnations onscreen, some more terrifying than others. In “The Wretched”, she’s a zombie-like creature that threatens the safety of a Roman Army led by their brave leader Marcus. Kudos to her perseverance for those long hours in the make-up chair to create the look of the ghoulish creature. I do hope she gets to do more roles sans the make-up for MARITZA has such a gentle pleasantness.

News just in she’s booked another horror film called “Abandoned” where she’s not going to be pretty in it. She plays a history teacher who goes crazy by killing her students and returns later as a ghost to haunt the school. Check out the trailer (above). Although in the short film “Easy A”, she does impress on us her seductive nature as a Maths educator and we’ve inclined to be Hot For Teacher…:) Maritza is after all of Chilean descent which means she’s blessed with the friendly Latin attractiveness that’s a little saucy and that’s just the way we like it. Thankfully, the MARITZA BRIKISAK OFFICIAL SITE is the portal to keep updated on her future projects which she is busily garnering in the coming months.

Latin Vixen: Paulina Galvez

 alt=  alt=

A consummate character actress on both English and Spanish productions, PAULINA GALVEZ radiates sensuality each time she takes to the screen. Those gorgeous curls of hair, eminent cheekbones and mesmerizing Chilean/Spanish roots means she has all the makings of a Latin Sex Symbol. Many will remember her super hot sex scene from the independent sci-fi thriller Rottweiler where she plays her character Alyah with animalistic seduction despite her dowdy facade. With a daughter in tow, her ravishing of the hero of the film seems to be borne of motherly instinct. Even as Detective Ana Karina in the bilingual series “RPM Miami” on Telemundo, she never fails to entice…think Lauren Velez as the sassy Lt. Maria LaGuerta from “Dexter” and with her very own commanding aura that men intently fancy. Amidst the gearheads, fast-paced thrills and hot bodies, Paulina is marvelous as the forward thinking, bisexual cop. With “RPM Miami” renewed for a second Season after a ratings high, will PAULINA be there to generate even more heat??

The PAULINA GALVEZ OFFICIAL SITE and PAULINA GALVEZ OFFICIAL BLOG are essential viewing if you’re a fan. In her words, she’s an actress who very much follows her heart and her plucky, often daring performances over the years have lit up the screen. From her days as Marta, the Gypsy servant on ‘The Queen Of Swords’ and her various incarnations spanning several genres, it’s clear she infuses an unflinching feisty side in tandem with her undeniable Spanish sultriness. I was pleasantly surprised with her character’s swearing on the horror flick “The Nun”. Having been part of more than 30 features both in Europe and the US, this under-rated talent is steadily gaining the recognition she deserves.
