Icelandic Goddess and blossoming Sex Symbol MARIA BIRTA impresses upon us her alluring credentials which would get a resounding seal of approval. The influx of Actresses from Scandinavia is most welcome as viewers around the globe get a visual treat each time they leaves us in awe with their most enticing ubiquity. Many would have seen Finnish hottie Pihla Viitala sizzle in “Hansel and Gretel:Witch Hunters” and Swedish ingenue Alice Vikander potently ravishing in “Anna Karenina”. Now it’s time to feast your eyes on upcoming onscreen temptation MARIA as she leaves you in raptures. As Dagny in the crime thriller “Black’s Game”, she is the perfect incarnation of flirty sensuality who has some steamy moments with the leading man. At the Edda Icelandic Academy Awards 2013, she won Best Supporting Actress for “Black’s Game (Svartur á Leik)” signaling she’s set for the big time. Wonder if she’ll garner the Shooting Star Award that honors the best young talents yearly.
Call her Europe’s Elisha Cuthbert for she has a rockin’ body and while she’s a natural when it comes to exuding sexiness, MARIA is thoroughly down-to-earth just like Elisha. I just had a conversation with a very delectable blogger that when a woman is hot, she’s always going to be considered hot and while she debated that all men are automatically attuned to this trait, the lusciousness within will stand out! Without a doubt, MARIA represents desirable woman with distinction and could easily be ranked as Iceland’s Top 10 Sexiest Entertainers. We are looking at the possibility of the rapid rise of the very inviting MARIA BIRTA.
LIDIA VITALE is the epitome of a Screen Goddess known for being one of the most sensual women to have captivated audiences in Italy, the US and around the globe. With Italy being a Dream Destination of mine, the very alluring and classy LIDIA just made my decision that much easier. I would be gushing if I got the chance to meet LIDIA who is an absolute Bella. Back in 2009 in the romantic thriller “La Doppia Ora” aka The Double Hour, she played one of the lovers of a man who resorts to speed dating to find sexual partners. She did flaunt her luscious body in a rather steamy scene with the lead actor and showed the world her enigmatic comeliness even though it was a supporting role. It’s significant in this day how effortless LIDIA can project such a tempting facade and in the US, she is fondly remembered for her one woman show “Solo Anna”, a characterization of the legendary actress Anna Magnani. She proved to be a creative force on stage, bringing lots of fun, humor and a touching performance. If you’ve watched her reels (above), she’s replicated all that whenever she takes to the screen, every bit the professional taking our breaths away!
Enough reason then to visit the LIDIA VITALE OFFICIAL SITE and lead any reader on his or her way to appreciating this wonderful Roman Leading Lady. She does have the best of two worlds, able to shuttle between English and Italian-speaking roles, her attractiveness very much stems from her sincerity in the features she’s done over the years. Soon you may find LIDIA joining the likes of Loren and Bellucci, distinguished European talents with the undeniable Sex Appeal.
The Trailblazer Of The Year Award goes to…..
Meg Chambers Steedle
As Billie Kent on “Boardwalk Empire”, Meg Chambers Steedle embodied one of the most beloved new characters on the hit HBO saga. She lit up every episode as the fun-loving mistress of gang leader Nucky and proved to be no ordinary flapper girl. Meg also took on the requisite nude scenes with gusto, beguiling both critics and viewers in each of her scenes. Handling the emotional complexity of such a troubled character demonstrated her ability to hold our attention season long and she’s more than made her mark on television. There’s a star quality about this spunky redhead and we cannot wait to see more of Meg, The Dazzler…:)
Sweetheart Of The Year awards goes to…..
Let me count the ways Brittney Refakes should be the name on everyone’s lips in the new year. By far one of the cutest performers on the independent scene, Brittney is so lovable thanks to her entrancing face and gracious personality. It is no small feat to send me her autograph photo (above) and for that she’ll always be cherished…:) “Behind The Horror” is the film indie fans will come to enjoy as it’s dark comedic themes are entertaining and witty. Her gorgeous cheekbones, fair skin and warm smile gives Brittney a profound semblance of comeliness. That means the infatution for her starts right now!

Most Memorable Starlets Of The Year award goes to…..
Halley Feiffer and Justine Lupe
While in 2011, Fiona Gubelmann and Holland Roden endeared themselves by personally endorsing me, it’s with great pleasure to state that Halley Feiffer as well as Justine Lupe gave me the thumbs up in 2012. Both are revered starlets in their own right; Justine famed for starring as Phoebe Blake in the NBC legal drama Harry’s Law, ruffling feathers along the way in what was a memorably striking character. Halley’s body of work has seen her in the acclaimed show “Bored To Death” and the quirky dramedy “Free Samples” with Jesse Eisenberg. They are indeed 2 amazing talents with such affable presence which I adore!
Canadian Vixen Of The Year goes to…..
The IT Girl from Canada, Katie is having a ripple effect of adulation on the public and developing into a much sought-after talent. High profile appearances in “The Master” with leading man Phillip Seymour Hoffman and starring as a murderous nun on “Murdoch Mysteries has seen her turn into the darling everyone wants to watch. Going into 2013, the edgy comedy “Sex After Kids” and gritty drama “Gerontophilia” will have her in challenging roles that will highlight her versatility. Her intoxicating mix of Hollywood glamor girl and blossoming ingenue charms is bound to take her to the very top!
Euro Vixen Of The Year goes to goes to…..
Every feature she’s been in, Sylvia Hoeks continues to offer something original and it is merited that she was named as one of European films’ Shooting Stars back in 2011. The Dutch actress has the noteworthy willowy beauty many would fawn over and she has been regarded as being a stimulating figure on camera. She did go topless in “De Bende Van Oss (AKA The Gang of Oss)”, the pre-war drama where she was the dazzling factor as Johanna van Heesch, a crime figure of sorts. With a compelling part as a medical student who can see through people in the English-language film “X-Ray Eyes”, let’s hope all of Hollywood take notice of her.
Best Onscreen Performance in a Truly Creepy Movie goes to…..
The revolution of horror with the found footage genre is made riveting when female talents shine and that’s what Hannah Fierman did in “V/H/S”. “Amateur Night” is the terror tale she was in as part of the anthology of 5 shorts and as Lily left viewers petrified. Let’s just say it was a monstrous performance certain to excite every horror fan and display the depth of Hannah’s onscreen ability to arouse the senses. You may also have seen her in the popular series “The Vampire Diaries”, her distinctive facets glow with unique captivation. We’ve only scratched the surface of what she can do and Hannah is well on course for stardom.
Enchantingly Memorable Mature Actress Award goes to…..
Stepfanie Kramer and Stephanie Jones
By now, it should no longer be a secret I’m passionate about older actresses for they have a special brand of allure that’s well documented. In 2012, both Stepfanie Kramer and Stephanie Jones were eye-catching in their respective projects which deserves an enthusiastic mention. It was “The Secret Circle” that saw Stepfanie at her bewitching best as the duplicitous Kate and I still can’t get over the fact the CW series was cancelled. Likewise Stephanie Jones proved to be a digital vixen on the web series “Good Job, Thanks” reveling in the role of bitchy Linda Livingston-Black making her lovable with perfect comic timing.
Most Celebrated Blonde Of The Year award goes to…..
Much has been discussed about how Olivia Dudley is busty-licious but rest assured she’s compelling in more ways than just her bountiful assets! It’s so appropriate that the tagline for the trailer of “Wadzilla” from the cult film “Chillerama” spells out ‘With A Climax That Will Blow You’. She of course teases a little cleavage for the camera and just like the other Olivia (Miss Wilde) became a constant addiction for viewers across the globe. In the survival horror flick “The Chernobyl Diaries”, she struck a chord with audiences yet again leaving us hypnotized and cementing herself as a modern day Sex Symbol.
It’s been a while since a bewitching actress from the European continent made her presence felt here and SYLVIA HOEKS will surely leave us all besotted. Widely regarded as one of the most promising young talents from Europe, this Dutch ingenue has blossomed into a much sought screen siren. Nabbing the leading lady role alongside Geoffrey Rush and Donald Sutherland in “The Best Offer”, she’s set to scale international heights. Her ability to maintain a sense of mystique when in character has seen her play everything from a Lolita to an emotionally-damaged woman. The crowning glory has to be the Oscars 2011 entry “Tirza”, an intense tale of a father’s love for his favorite daughter where SYLVIA dazzled and came to such prominence at an early stage of her career.
Already SYLVIA is generating buzz for her new film “The Girl and Death” where she’s Elise, the love of an old Russian doctor who returns to the spot where he first felt passionately for her. Who wouldn’t be smitten by the delicate etherealness of the beautiful SYLVIA and she is the progeny of fascination in the tragic romance. The SYLVIA HOEKS OFFICIAL SITE is the place to get ourselves familiar with this breathtaking starlet. Likewise, professing our rapturous affection for her would resonantly follow suit.
ISABELLA CASCARANO is the foxy Venezeulan Beauty who has caught the eye every time she’s performed. Her broad range of work on movies, television, theater and on the red carpet is impressive. Furthermore, this belle is heavenly on all fronts with immaculate features guaranteed to enchant. Her most recent appearance is in the actioner “Bad Ass” as a woman who promptly films a fight scene on a bus between Danny Trejo’s character and some punks. While this was a supporting role, she has shone before, notably in the suspenseful thriller “Subhysteria”. ISABELLA injected tense realism as one of sixteen people trapped on a subway train and cut off from the outside world. It’s clear she has charisma written all over.
Having won Best Actress for her performance in the dramatic film “Our Vows” at the EURO FILM FESTIVAL IN MARBELLA, SPAIN just last year, we’ll be hearing a lot more from her soon. Meanwhile keep updated on all her projects at the ISABELLA CASCARANO OFFICIAL SITE. Away from the camera, ISABELLA is heavily involved in philanthropy and has campaigned to raise awareness of the plight of children with terminal diseases. Representative of the good nature of actresses around the world, we as fans are regularly in awe of the deeds they’ve accomplished. Let’s shower ISABELLA with the love and support as she makes waves in the US, Mexico/Latin American and soon the world!
With her killer 34C-24-36 bod, LILIYA CZARINA commands our utmost attention and makes us all wish Summer was already here. It’s been a while since a European actress has taken our breath away and with her immaculate skin tone, LILIYA evokes an avid level of infatuation. Obviously her steamy shower scene in “The Echo Game” may have something to do with that and she herself agrees her experience making the film was both uplifting and arousing. In front of the camera, she’s full of upbeat intensity and she’s definitely one sexy woman in those tiny bikinis. If a woman’s body is considered art then the buxom LILIYA would be a vision of beauty indeed.
You may have seen her in independent movies like “Where’s Tuesday Monday?” and “Safety First: The Rise of Women!”, the latter a raunchy comedy, her improvisation and comedic skills coming in very handily. Through her love for telling stories via pictures, she’s already written, directed and produced four short films. She has tons of positivity and her cheerfulness spills into her real life too, so fashionably photogenic yet she’s thoroughly grounded. LILIYA is that magical and we can’t wait to watch more of her…:)
With the date 11-11-11 being a primary phenomenon this year, I’m following its lead by featuring Renée Fokker, the first ever Dutch actress on the Actress Obsession Blog. Her appearances in the explicit Cannes selection “Code Blue” as well as the much vaunted thriller “Loft” have introduced her to a worldwide audience. She currently stars as Chief of Serious Crime Department in Amsterdam on the TV series “Hart-Tegen-Hard” (aka Hard against Heart) and while it has been compared to the popular “Castle”, the show has something “Castle” does not; A sexy, take charge police commander Trudy van Veen played by the voluptuously beguiling Renée. As one can see, she is endowed with an authentic, sensual nature and she more than expresses feminine sexual liberation in the raunchy “LelleBelle” as the mother of a young girl whose is discovering her carnal knowledge. Oh, her character also happens to be a teacher who educates couples on the fine art of erotic copulation and even quotes the Kamasutra. The honest direction the drama takes is not one of exploitation rather the laying bare of irrepressible pubescent desires and a flirtatious yet sensitive interpretation from Renée makes it all the more rousing. Having watched “Cat Run” recently, I have to say European cinema can get away with pretty much anything (i.e. full-frontal nudity, penetration) where other markets may fear to thread and “LelleBelle” is unequivocal in its explicitness.
While the US has the gifted yet under-rated screen siren Patricia Clarkson, the Netherlands can count Renée Fokker as one of it’s visually stimulating stars. Actually, Patricia has even reprized the award-winning role Renée made famous in “Blind Date” directed by controversial filmmaker Theo van Gogh and it’s clear both have an immensely, engaging sultriness. Whether she’s arthouse or TV Darling, here’s an actress at her peak and we can anticipate more strong performances from the gorgeous Renée.
MANOUSH stands on her own as a character actress in Horror with an unabashed attitude who has over the years embodied villainous personas with distinction. You won’t be seeing her as the victim in her 40+ films instead unrestrained depravity is the order of the day in MANOUSH’s performances thus far. Her wicked ways as the dominatrix and snuff filmmaker Olga in the much talked about “The Super” is a descend into immoral pleasures, i.e. the act of killing for profit. She excelled as the symbol of domineering feminity, reminiscent of her brilliant turn as Lady Boss Madame Fabienne in the violent “La Petite Mort” who has a bloodlust for hacking off human parts including a dude’s manhood. While gorehounds revel in the terror of the movies she’s been in, it’s the atmosphere of foreboding created by this Swiss-born German actress that’s ultimately resounding.
Humbly unpretentious and deeply passionate for horror herself, MANOUSH is a talented lady who audiences can most definitely relate to. Let me tell you she loves to have a bout of cussing once in a while and not averse to laying bare her opinions on current affairs. Case in point her grouses with the socio-political climate on Facebook, giving her two cents worth regarding the Southwest Airlines/ Leisha Hailey girl-on-girl kiss incident…can you believe Leisha got kicked off the plane for that! MANOUSH can sure rumble with the best and her straight-rule, tell it like she sees it grievances on worldly issues is genuinely remarkable…makes me wanna rid the universe of injustices too!! Lauded as a genre icon, she’s exhibiting a unique depth not only on celluloid but as a person and conversationalist. If you’re looking for an authenticity in a performer then MANOUSH delivers it full on.
