There’s already a battle brewing on who’s the sauciest young actress even though ‘SKINS (US Version)’ just made its premiere recently. Admittedly every single one of the ladies has her own distinctive allure and Rachel Thevenard who plays bad-boy loving Michelle on “SKINS” certainly takes your breath away. Her character may look demure but she’s someone not be messed with, picking fights with girls as well as guys! Uncompromising good as the sweet girl with a lust for life, smitten with her even lustier boyfriend who treats her like trash. I may enrage long time ‘SKINS’ fanatics here but i’m biting the bullet by acknowledging that Rachel makes a sexier Michelle than April Pearson (of UK Skins fame)…sorry. Mirroring the privileged generation of the modern youth who live like there’s no tomorrow, expect drug-fueled parties, casual sex and teen melodrama filled with sexual identity issues. I hope things continue on the raunchy road much in the same vein as the original UK series as we want the moans,groans and ecstasy in the raw…please MTV i beg you not to deprive us of those priceless erotic moments! Make sure you don’t miss the mind blowing Reverse Party Scene (above) complete with thumping bass and plenty of wet kissing between the leads with Rachel delivering the most stimulating thrills.
Much like how newcomers, the foxy Sarah Butler (‘I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE’) and the delicious duo Ashlynn Yennie/Ashley Williams (‘THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE’) roused audiences in the past year on film, RACHEL THEVENARD debuts fabulously as a television siren in what has been a scintillating era for ingénues. I’m amazed that all these actresses have captured our hearts so rapidly, a sure sign of their worldly appeal. Fans have even affectionately coined the term “The Thevenard Effect” and with the “SKINS” FACEBOOK page reaching a fanbase of almost 60,000 the hype has justifiably reach fever pitch! Remake or not, Rachel brings her A-game and engaging substance to every nuance of her multi-layered character Michelle. Rachel’s an exquisite entertainer for the present and the future..:)
