SXSW 2013 Fever is happening this week and KENDRA WALDMAN is the enchanting brunette everyone will have eyes for at the vibrant festival. She is heading down to Austin Texas for the premiere of her feature “Reality Show” this weekend which means more than ample time to become acquainted with the mesmerizing sweetness of KENDRA. She plays Jenna, a demanding network TV decision maker who is insistent that the pitches that go through her and her team are riveting enough. Getting on the nerves of the leading man Mickey Wagner (Adam Rifkin, writer and director of “Reality Show”) by being a constant irritant is all in a day’s work and KENDRA is in her element as the bossy, very driven Jenna. The trailer (above) shows glimpses of the lovely KENDRA as Jenna being rather pushy and I can’t wait to see fireworks ignite especially since her character is quite the bitch. Reminiscent of “The Truman Show”, where the privacy in your backyard is compromised for the sake of high ratings, “Reality Show” is a must-see for its sartorial take on the pervasive mindlessness of reality shows.
KENDRA will also be seen in the upcoming “Gutshot Straight” which stars George Eads from “CSI” and Annalyn McCord of “90210″ fame. Clearly from her photos, KENDRA does have a warm smile that gives her a fascinating edge and from head to toe, she’s glowing…:) We’ll be hearing more about this cutie in the days ahead.
Watch this space as KENDRA has promised to dish on some fun facts about the SXSW Narrative entry “Reality Show”. Can’t Wait!
Eliciting adoration is easy when one is as fetching as STEPHANIE MILLS who is a successful voice-over artist and a comedic actress. As many can attest, she has a glow so sweet to the eyes and that lovely voice of hers equally charming. After all, STEPHANIE voices Lindsay on the Cartoon Network hit animated series “Total Drama”. A little bit naive and hardly the sharpest tool in the shed, Lindsay is a favorite with fans thanks to the lovable personality STEPHANIE has given to the character. She does the same in her latest series “Seed” albeit this time in the flesh as Zoey, one of two mums of a nine-year-old called Billy. Already one can predict there’s going to plenty of oddball humor and ultimately littered with adorable moments. As I’ve been told by STEPHANIE herself, she’s in full swing of promoting “Seed” and this slacker comedy should thrust her into the limelight.
Stephanie was also recently seen on the Hallmark Channel in the romantic story “Come Dance With Me” as Demi Clayton whose boyfriend (played by Andrew McCarthy) falls for a dance instructor. Now how can we explain the power of love when it’s so unpredictable! I bet there’s gonna be re-run of this film on Valentine’s Day and more opportunities to watch the vivacious STEPHANIE. Don’t mind if I tag STEPHANIE as a vixen even though she’s attained recognition in the genre of comedy and a glance at her foxy pic (above) suggests she could easily embody a lady with feminine wilds on screen. TV Season in 2013 is a highly addictive one when we get to tune in and be enchanted by the fascinatingly sweet STEPHANIE MILLS.
From theater to indie features, there’s noteworthy moments by which JANET ULRICH BROOKS often will leave audiences and reviewers enamored. Described as being highly watchable, JANET’s spot on delivery of an assortment of characters has seen praise coming from within and outside the industry. Be it employing a foreign accent or navigating the challenges of portraying varied expressions, she’s done it all and at the same time held our attention. At the Hollywood Reel Indie Film Festival, she appears in “One Small Hitch”, a tale of unexpected passion between 2 childhood friends who try to fake a wedding engagement. Seeing how comedy is her forte, she’s certainly part of some funny moments on film and if you get a chance to see her onscreen, marvel at her flair as an entertainer. In “I Heart Shakey”, she does play up the qurkiness as a dictatorial manager Estelle Willinger who is a stickler when it comes to pets at her property.
If you’ve seen Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil, JANET’s interpretation of the villain in the family comedy is larger-than-life and eccentrically fascinating. JANET has a colorful and impressive career thus far, a true-blue talent on stage as well as the features she’s been in…:) Having signaled her intention to meet me in future, I wouldn’t hesitate to take her up on the offer.
Actresses can sometimes leave a most memorable impression and HANNAH FIERMAN is more than capable of beguiling a healthy cross-section of admirers. Her performance in “V/H/S” is startling yet has us hooked especially when she’s switches from mysterious to sheer rage. As Lily, a woman who is more than meets the eye, she accepts sexual overture from three unsuspecting guys looking to film an amateur porn video and proceeds to rip them to shreds in sickening fashion. Just like how “Detention” forever changed the slasher genre, “V/H/S” reinvents the wheel when it comes to found footage horror flicks. HANNAH of course is a standout in the creepy film and with her fascinatingly big eyes, she’s a magnetic enigma to be fondly remembered for the longest time.
You may have also spotted her on TV guest-starring on an episode of “The Vampire Diaries” as well as “The Game”. News in from the actresses herself: She’s slated to star in 2 features, first as Laura, one of the 2 leads in the film “Carmella” by director Bret Wood. In September, she will dazzle in “Hold Me” by director Teace Snyder playing the lead role of Hannah. She’s indicated that both are dark but wonderful stories in keeping with the kind of roles HANNAH stunningly thrives at…:) Visit the HANNAH FIERMAN OFFICIAL SITE and you’ll find her distinctive looks to be intoxicating. She’s a hot prospect who is expected to be a scene stealer.
HALLEY FEIFFER has already established herself as a captivating starlet and continues to astound viewers with a series of riveting performances. I’m honored and lucky to be able to watch her on film and reading of her interest to be featured on the Actress Obsession Blog is truly special indeed. The posts I’ve written from the first day is a testament to the influence of talented women such as HALLEY and they’re the very reason why this blog was created. There’s sweetness about HALLEY that is layered with fascination awaiting to be discovered by keen eyes. Invited to spend time with a man and his gravely ill wife in “How It Ended”, her portrayal as a flustered young woman is vulnerable and tempting in equal measures. “How It Ended is available now free online through Film Movement, its distributor and this is the perfect opportunity to be mesmerized by Miss HALLEY FEIFFER…:)
If you’ve read the interviews she’s done, HALLEY has a kooky and dirty sense of humor, a genuinely engaging aspect to her personality that she so often exudes be it in her varied roles, on the theater scene or in real life. On her way to becoming a big name herself, she’s starring alongside Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti in “Lucky Dog” as well as with Jesse Eisenberg in 2 upcoming comedies, she’ll be all the rage in 2012. Also an amazing playwright and producer, HALLEY is segueing into lighter fare as opposed to her earlier dramatic exploits, demonstrating her inviting versatility. Expect a flood of devotion trickling her way in the months ahead.
Complimenting TONYA CORNELISSE on her distinct etherealness is to admire a lady of many qualities. She so often seeks to deliver a unique experience with each performance, from Broadway to television as well as the big screen. Seen as one of the most fascinating emerging actresses, her flair for a menagerie of quirky characters leaves plenty of room for adoration. Notably she was excellent as a guest star on “NCIS”, playing a female prisoner with attitude, from flashing her boobs for her boyfriend to stirring things up. Be it up-front brunt or depicting subtleness, TONYA handles the finer points capably and versatility has always been her strong suit. Don’t miss her body of work at the TONYA CORNELISSE OFFICIAL SITE.
It’s great to know she has a connection to my island home, having appeared in “Robotropolis” which was shot in Singapore. Wish I had managed to catch her in the flesh during some of her scenes. It won’t be long before she becomes the talk of town with her upcoming feature “Crave” along side Ron Perlman and as well as indie feature “Yellow” along side Sienna Miller & Gena Rowlands in the pipeline.
Some actresses are entrancing from the first moment they grace the screen and CAROLINE REDEKOPP is instantly eye-catching. Never underestimate the smile of a woman and CAROLINE wears it in such a ravishing way, we are pleasantly mesmerized. When I first saw her in this year’s Franco-Canadian thriller “Territories”, she left quite a hold on me, leaving me pretty much intrigued. Away from the torture-porn and political heaviness (Gulf War syndrome and terrorism fears) of the flick, it’s nice to have a quieter reflection on life which CAROLINE ponders over as the waitress Doris. If you were all alone in a diner (as the scene above plays out), wouldn’t you want to be greeted by such a flirtatious charmer. Discern CAROLINE’s naughty/nice appeal which this festive Month of Christmas certainly celebrates. Surely it’s observable how she bears an uncanny resemblance to one of the hottest woman ever to grace TV Land (Go on, take a guess!). Hey Mister Casting Director you seem to have missed out on a Gem! Didn’t you make out CAROLINE’s resemblance to both Lynda Carter and the legendary comic heroine that is Diana Prince? In no way will an actress obsessor (moi) resort to knocking Adrienne Palicki’s take on TV’s ill-fated Wonder Woman although CAROLINE would have certainly made a fabulous Amazonian Princess.
Ensure a visit to the CAROLINE REDEKOPP OFFICIAL SITE where you will discover she’s already prevalent on television. You may have seen her as Karen Caldone, mother of Kay Panabakar’s character Samantha in “Cyberbully”, the ABC family drama that hits a raw nerve when it comes to depicting abuse on the internet. She’s also set to headline the TV Movie “September Runs Red” as woman who is beset by the condition aquaphobia that could have a deadly impact on her life. An enthralling premise with an equally fascinating leading lady is why we’ll find the time for some CAROLINE REDEKOPP devotion has indeed arrived…:)
Horror Hound Weekend starts on Friday, 11th November and it’s a huge pleasure to spotlight Chelsey Garner, starlet from the highly rated “Down The Road”. Since she was the first of the 3 hot actresses from this retro looking horror flick to befriend me as her fan on Facebook, I’m having her grace the Actress Obsession Blog at the outset. Or maybe it’s her comely pair of green eyes that would be bewitching on the screen irregardless of the period she’s in character. After all, she’s a Southern belle and her hospitable personality would have everyone grow fond of her in no time at all. In “Down The Road”, she’s Michele, one of several fun-seeking college students who are escaping the clutches of their problematic lives only to end up as sacrificial lambs of a vindictive killer. The throwback to the slashers of ’80s and ’90s boomed ever since Ti West’s House Of The Devil caused a stir with its slow burning suspense. “Down The Road” replicates the dated shlock but this time purists will not wait long to be thrilled by the pace and violence. Chelsey’s pained expression near the end of the trailer (above) surely spurs you on to catch the film and find out what fate may befall her.
In fact, she could well be following in the footsteps of actresses such as Scout Taylor-Compton and Danielle Harris who have ascended the throne of perennial slasher sweethearts. The duo I just mentioned were in smaller, independent films (Scout was in “Wicked Things” & Danielle was in “Urban Legend”) before making it big so in the same vein, Chelsey is more than capable of becoming prominent. Having recently read that her aim is to inspire audiences by building a rapport with them, her elegant yet relatable attributes should hold her in good stead. Becoming one of the rallying voices for women in independent cinema has been a mission of mine from the very start and the fascinating Chelsey Garner makes it all worthwhile.
