Sizzling Cutie: Laney Fichera

 alt=  alt=

Laney Fichera brings a likable essence to the roles she essays and her versatile talents have seen her prosper in all forms of entertainment. She’s worked for some of the biggest TV networks as a correspondent and has been eye-catching in a host of films, TV shows as well as the theater scene. She’s also a great motivational speaker who is more than capable of conversing with audiences on thought-provoking topics. Laney can be seen in “Palo Alto” which is milking the buzz at the Tribeca Film Festival due to its controversial teacher-student romance theme, its amazing cast led by Emma Roberts and of course the exciting promise of director debutante Gia Coppola. In my opinion, a great film is the sum of all of its parts and Laney’s character is just as integral.

Here is what Laney has to say about her character and her time on the set of “Palo Alto”:

“Working on Palo Alto was an absolutely wonderful experience, it was one of the most relaxed sets I’ve worked on. It was exciting to be a part of writer/director Gia Coppola’s first feature, she set the tone -making it a safe place for her actors to create. I play the character of Judy the school librarian, who apparently is the only reliable adult in the film, which is based on James Franco’s coming of age story in his hometown of Palo Alto. My scenes were with Jack Kilmer (Val’s son) who was a pleasure to work with. Like you I’m really looking forward to seeing the film.”

Watch a snippet of her appearance alongside Jack who plays Teddy in her theatrical reel (above). Lacey has also been making headway in a great pilot season and she’s looking forward to recasts so don’t be surprised if you see her on a new TV show or two…:) You can also keep up with all of the updates at the LANEY FICHERA OFFICIAL SITE.

Palm Beach International Film Fest 2014 Spotlight: Latin Vixen Patricia De Leon

 alt=  alt=

There’s nothing we love better than to be awe of the foxiest Latinas in modern entertainment and Patricia De Leon affirms her sizzle factor is limitless. Patricia has enchanted the world as an actress, TV host, model as well as a former Miss Panama beauty queen and Univision reporter. I love how she’s partial to take on smart, sophisticated roles as opposed to those sexy Latina ones which so often comes her way. Sophia Vergara may have hit pay dirt when she played the sultry Hispanic card on “Modern Family” but the dedicated Patricia desires something with substance. She is however 100% desirable and is one of the stars of the new dramedy “Confessions of a Womanizer” that tells of a compulsive lothario who becomes best buds with a transgendered prostitute. He certainly has his pick of some of the hottest women on the planet with Patricia sharing sexy screen time with the Bella Twins from WWE, Jillian Rose Reed and Nosheen Phoenix. She must now surely be a must see at this year’s edition of the Palm Beach International Film Fest!

Her versatility shone through when she appeared in a recurring role on “Magic City” as Pastorita Nunez, a feisty Cuban woman with ties to Fidel Castro. In the upcoming thriller “Light from the Darkroom”, she’s in the lead role of Dr Carmen Hill, a strong-willed Panamanian surgeon who returns to Panama City in the wake of a religious pilgrimage turned massacre. Patricia can be said to be the epitome of lusciousness seeing how she’s been the gorgeous image of many advertising campaigns, this is one beauty who bewitches even when she’s not performing. It is true that Latin women do have glowing skin! As she once said in an interview: ‘Glamor is sensual by nature, they go hand in hand and I don’t exclude either one’. What she has achieved so wonderfully is to embrace all the facets of femininity and going against typecasting that’s afforded to someone as heavenly as her. It has to be said our crush for Patricia now extends beyond just admiring her voluptuous features to it’s about acknowledging her depth as a rapidly rising talent.
