Rising Starlet: Kate Alden

 alt=  alt=

With her angelic smile and enticing eyes, Kate Alden could soon be the name everyone will be clamoring with adoring intentions. From TV to the indie scene, this cutie is impressing us with several stirring performances. She does have the fashionable looks that could hark back to glory days of yore which means Kate would be well-suited in retro shows such as “Mad Men” or “Manhattan”. The big news is that Kate will appear in “The Librarians”, an Indiana-Jones styled series where ordinary librarians go off in search of ancient artifacts. Set to air in November 2014, she joins a bevy of beauties such as Rebecca Romijn and Lindy Booth. You can also catch her in “The Device” which will be screening at this year’s Tacoma Film Festival. In the riveting sci-fi thriller, she plays Rebecca, the younger of two sisters who re-connect after being apart only for their lives to turn into a nightmare after discovering an object of alien origin. The very thing that brought them back could well be tearing them apart as its nefarious intentions are brought to bear by creators of the strange object. It’s an emotionally-driven role, one which Kate will leave us thoroughly absorbed.

Kate has also been a busy girl having been in reshoots for a film from last year, and gearing up to start rehearsals for a little winter theater. I feel blessed every time an actress makes time for little old me, even if it’s just short term as we know an actress life can get rather hectic. Her upcoming film “The Darker Path” sees her in the flesh of another damaged woman who in the wake of her mother’s death find there’s something sinister lurking. The horror genre is an exhaustive one and with the compelling Kate at the forefront, there’s never been a better time than now to carry a torch for this most lovely lady.

Sizzling Cutie: Marnette Patterson

 alt=  alt=

Some actresses have the perennial sensuality to last a lifetime and Marnette Patterson is the beauty to fawn over longingly. Great to hear Marnette is in the actioner “American Sniper” having been on hiatus and all I can say it’s she’s still as enticing as ever! Many will not forget her femme fatale performance in the racy “Wild Things: Foursome” I’m sure. “American Sniper” may be high on the testosterone with its travails on war but it’s nice the feminine quotient has its place in what is a gritty man’s world. Marnette does belong in the list of lovely blonde actresses whose return to the screen is something I can’t wait to see, for instance Whitney Able (who will return in “Dark”) and Christine Taylor (will Ben Stiller’s wifey make her comeback?). She did star in the coming of age film “Remember The Daze” with its stellar cast of Amber Heard, Lyndsy Fonseca, Leighton Meester, Brie Larson, Stella Maeve, among others. Marnette was already coveted back then and she is likely to still be very much on our radars.

Marnette is best known for her work in the series “Charmed” as a witch who is wanted by demons seeking the ultimate power. There’s also rumors of her being in the running for the next installment of the Bond series headlined by Daniel Craig. Her combination of sultriness and smarts would be a factor in winning such a coveted role as a Bond Girl. Marnette is blessed with a cultivated elegance and her long awaited screen return is one to savor.
