Sizzling Cutie: Amy De Bhrún

 alt=  alt=

The vivacious and enchanting Amy De Bhrún has that aura of innocence that’s made for passionate swooning. Dublin-born actresses have a special place in my heart and I’ve had a passion for them since catching sight of Eva Birthistle in one of all time favorite romantic drama “Ae Fond Kiss…”. Amy likewise could very well be lauded for her dramatic flair in her heart-wrenching short film “After”. All beat up and bruised, she plays a woman who goes through a traumatic event that will ultimately cause friction with her new found boyfriend. If you’re at the La Femme Film Festival, “After” is having its screening at this celebration of female talents around the world.

Such is the nature of the numerous film festivals happening this week, I couldn’t slot in an interview with Amy but it’s a moment in time to look forward to…:) If you’re the viewer who harbors a love for actresses such as Sara Paxton, Amy is one of the talents who is just as luminous from every angle. On television, her dazzling veneer has already lit up hit shows such as “Vikings” and the popular British series “Casualty”. She’s also appeared alongside Imogen Poots and Hayley Atwell in “Jimi: All Is by My Side” which tells of the move of Jimi Hendrix from New York City for London where his career really took of! Talking about careers, on stage, Amy had sell out performances in Dublin where she delighted audiences with her rapier wit. We know beauty and being funny are a most delectable combo so start falling in love with Amy De Bhrún, the lovable Irish Rose.

TIFF 2014 Spotlight: Sizzling Cutie Vanessa Bednar

 alt=  alt=

Enchanting us with her pleasant individuality, Vanessa Bednar has steadily gained a measure of success in her time as an actress. This former Hawaiian Tropic Girl will be catching our attention in a variety of indie features. She’s in a supporting role as Gail the Junkie in the horror movie “Spring” which is having its premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Fest. Creepy and atmospheric, the question on everyone’s lips is what exactly is the creature that the girl transforms into…Is she a mermaid or a feminine beast in a reversal of Beauty and The Beast. In her words, Vanessa believes in the potential of the movie especially since the writer/ director’s last movie “Resolution” was picked up by Tribeca films. Following her top billing in the Vivica A. Fox romantic comedy “The Power Of Love” (she gets to tie up her boyfriend!), this likable and affable actress may soon find herself in the limelight.

You can also see Vanessa as officer Jane in a children’s film entitled “Wishes” and she’s about to film the 2nd season of the web series “Involuntarily Single”. While she has dabbled in pretty much every genre, seeing her taking the comedic route is going to be a virtue for fascination. Let’s all be acquainted with the many flavors of the lovely Vanessa Bednar. If you’re at TIFF, catch her at the premiere of “Spring”!
