Canada’s finest beguile us once again as the ravishing Alison Wandzura is set to be a perennial charmer with those beautiful, piercing eyes. She has plentiful charismatic qualities and can regale us with her intelligent yet captivating persona. After her move to Vancouver, she quickly discovered that she would no longer be auditioning for the heartwarming family shows that were the norm back home. Alison traded in her wholesome flannel shirt for a slick black leather jacket after her move to Vancouver since it is a must for any actor in a market dominated by sci-fi and procedural drama. One of her finest performances was as an alluring senior officer, Major Corporal Maryann Kirk in the short film “Citizen Jane” who seduces the titular Private Jane into a sordidly sapphic affair. Audiences will come to know Alison’s capacity to shine in a dramatic setting.

Here’s Alison revealing about the roles she has essayed:

2013 was a very exciting one for me, as I got to work on awesome shows such as Motive (ABC), Package Deal (City TV), The Tomorrow People (CW Network) and the feature film Godzilla (Warner Bros.) Being in Vancouver is a great opportunity for me at this point in my career because our city hosts quite a few popular American network shows. I’m crossing my fingers for some on-set time in 2014 on shows like The Killing (Netflix), Arrow (CW), Once Upon a Time (ABC) and Hell on Wheels (AMC).

Alison is primed for affection with her upcoming appearances in not one but two fascinating new shows. First off she will be in “iZombie”, the series that shows us not all zombies are bad although they can never stave off their desire for human brains! Then Alison will pop up in “Backstrom” starring Rainn Wilson which continues our hunger for episodic criminal themes peppered with dark humor. She’s also co-producing a dramatic future-based series called “HYPHAE” that takes place in a world with no money. She once remarked as an actress: “It’s about discovering who she really is and how she can make a difference in the world by telling stories that matter.” We can start envisioning her as a burgeoning starlet with a bright future and one with a very good head (gorgeous of course!) on her shoulders.

Rising Starlet: Kate Alden

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.
