Fresh Face Of The Week: Abbie Gayle

 alt=  alt=

Advocating newcomers in the industry has always been a calling here and with ABBIE GAYLE, here’s a sweetheart we will come to adore. I’ve taken up the mantle of featuring blossoming actresses since IMDB has somehow forgotten to continue their representation of new talents. The Fresh Face of The Week is a new category I’ve taken up in reverence to the hotties who could be heading for their breakout role. If you’re knee deep into the mythos of the TV show “Ravenswood”, spot ABBIE playing Abby Wheeler, the ex-girlfriend of the twin’s, Olivia and Luke Matheson’s father and who died 20 years ago in a high school science lab explosion. Their mom, Rochelle told them that she was trying to contact their dad to tell him that he was in danger and the police are looking for Abby because they think that she could be a suspect in his murder, but she’s actually a ghost. And she’s haunting them and making appearances so check out the snippet of ABBIE in the video (above) from Episode 4 called “The Devil Has a Face”. Let’s hope she returns in her non-corporeal form in future episodes as ABBIE’s enchanting in that ghostly visage and it would be great to see her story arc pan out.

ABBIE may still be in High School but she can certainly catch the eye. Hailing from Louisiana, her glowing skin and winning smile are why we men appreciate belles from the South. Makes you want to catch her other flick “Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators” which airs on the SyFy channel and she will be covered in blood (lots of it) in this creature feature about mutant gators on a rampage. As she hones her craft while juggling her studies, there’s ample opportunities for her to shine and become an accomplished actress.

At the San Diego Film Festival 2012, everyone will be talking about GRACE FOLSOM who enchants with a memorable performance in “Things I Don’t Understand”. She stars as Sara, the terminally ill girl being interviewed by grad student Violet Kubelick (a believer in the afterlife) for her thesis on spirituality. Her dedicated research on the debilitating condition of her character is evident as GRACE is spot-on when depicting the state of a cancer-ravaged young woman dealing with her mortality. Conveying the face of positivity, she instills a touching yet spirited semblance of the travails affecting someone dealing with impending death. Twitch, one of the best entertainment sites did an article on her which prevalently signifies her blossoming status as a coveted newcomer.

Judging from the complimentary reviews on the GRACE FOLSOM OFFICIAL SITE, she could very well be arousing an avid preoccupation in the coming months. Grace does have the big ‘anime-like’ eyes which are perfectly gorgeous giving her a desirably striking look. As you know, men are drawn to lips more than any other facial feature and hers is full enhancing the attractiveness she has even further. Despite her busy schedule on the festival circuit, it’s great to hear back from her that she would be honored to be lauded on the Actress Obsession Blog. She just moved to LA about a month ago so expectations are that there will definitely be plenty more written about this lissome talent.
