ScreamFest LA Spotlight: Sizzling Cutie Lindsay LaVanchy

 alt=  alt=

She has a glow much like that of a fairy and Lindsay LaVanchy is a vivacious talent we should get excited for in a hurry. Having seen the premiere of “Once Upon A Time In Wonderland”, I think Lindsay would fit right in that fantastical world because she has an exuberant persona as well as looks. It’s not just mere coincidence that Lindsay has played a fairytale type of character before in a piece called “The Maiden And The Princess”. Her adorable essence is visibly part of the appeal she can bring to the screen. She is however just as adept in more grittier stuff, her work on “Criminal Minds” comes to mind as one of the more gripping sequences on that hit show. Lindsay also stars in the short film “Dembanger” which screens at ScreamFest LA on October 11. Giving us a creepy insight into the mind of a facebook stalker, there’s something in this story that can cut pretty close to real life, especially since our lives are an open book on social media. Lindsay is ever so innocent in the trailer for “Dembanger” which could be a reason why she’s been targeted by the sinister man.

If you’re the sort who enjoys thrillers, Lindsay just shot one for James Franco that should be done with post by December. Her role is one where she takes on her crazy dead sister’s personality and causes a lot of trouble in the hunt for her killer. Stay tuned for what would be a riveting film and a possible launching pad for her into bigger features.

Quirky Saucy: Katy Townsend

 alt=  alt=

Sexiness is omnipotent, quirkiness is divine and in Scottish actress KATY TOWNSEND, we find both bewitching facets shimmering within her. Even though she’s based in LA, I bet she’s been beguiling the West End for some time. As you know West End is in Glasgow where KATY hails from and of course, her accent is blissfully mesmerizing. There’s a local lingo used by Glaswegians that I stumbled upon recently and the phrase ‘She’s a wee stoater’ best describes her. It means to be an exceptionally pretty gal and KATY’s foxy, striking features which is an electrifying mix of gothic chic and cheeky cuteness will have us in her thrall. The pic of her in the ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ yellow tee (above) expresses the naughty attitude she radiates and her turn as a fairy in the short film “New World” speaks highly of KATY’s nymph-like uniqueness. She does wear the pigtails with an innocence that’s spellbinding.

Likewise, I was besotted after watching her in “Kill Katie Malone” which also stars Dean Cain. Her character Amy buys a ghost from the net in order to save a group of friends from the spirit’s vile intentions. Now how cool is that, being able to purchase your very own “Casper” or in this case a Hellish abomination! Her upcoming projects will be just as interesting so make sure to drop by the KATY TOWNSEND OFFICIAL SITE. One being “Neighbors”, an indie comedic drama delving into the tangled web of neighborly affairs. Honestly I haven’t seen Sean Patrick Thomas since he shone with Julia Stiles in “Save The Last Dance” but one can foresee the funky KATY to turn on the charm. Fellow Scots Kelly McDonald (“Boardwalk Empire”) and Karen Gillan (“Dr Who”) have been grabbing the headlines lately and this could well be the year when KATY introduces herself to the world as an emerging starlet.
