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.
Insanely Sexy and exceedingly sweet are two facets identifiable in the ravishing Tara Cardinal who will fire up our imagination with her role as Gaia in “Liberator”. Especially since she gets to brandish her array of superpowers and faces the original Incredible Hulk Lou Ferrigno who is the titular Liberator, a disgraced superhero who is targeted for assassination. In addition to her ass-kicking role, she will soon up the action ante in “Legend Of The Red Reaper” as a demon-hunting warrior out for vengeance. Add to that, her appearance alongside Eric Roberts in the thriller “Spreading Darkness” and we have a starlet on the path to prominence.
Her angelic presence in the Bryce Dallas Howard directed melancholic piece “When You Find Me” would make Marianna Palka instantly memorable. She’s perfectly ethereal in her representation of the mother for whom 2 women with contrasting feelings reminisce over their loss in a dream sequence when they were kids. If ever there was an actress born to be an indie sweetheart it would be the willowy beauty Marianna. Sundance, Bafta, Newport Beach are just some of the film Festivals where her impeccable onscreen work has been more than well-received. Be prepared to be wowed over and over again…:)
In the comedy short “Anti-Muse”, the eternally cute Lauren Lakis stars as Jules, a depressed girl who instills a sense of positivity in a man who is prepared to take his own life. Viewers will soon be acquainted with her irresistible appeal on either side of the lens as Lauren is truly bewitching in every sense of the word and her reel (above) is a must-watch. Most would agree she has genially, inviting features and it’s apparent Lauren has been ever present on this blog, more so when she’s so lovable in person. She even gave me a shout out on my facebook page and featuring her is my way of showering her with love in return.
With Chinese New Year a few days away, let’s instill some Asian flavor by having ELAINE LOH enchant us right here. For those in the know, ELAINE is actually of Hispanic and Asian heritage, a very alluring combo indeed, those almond shaped eyes, kissable lips and the soft hair very much desirable facets. This up and comer has just scored a role in “The Mentalist” where she’s currently having a ball on set. She’s acknowledged the cast may be the nicest people she’s had the pleasure of working alongside and I have a feeling Simon Baker may have something to do with those friendly vibes. “Californication”, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “Chuck” are some of the other shows where ELAINE has displayed her glowing lissomeness. There’s a collection of videos detailing her TV appearances at the ELAINE LOH OFFICIAL SITE. It’s been said she even gets into character when having a shower…what endearing dedication! Hmmm….or were some of you living in hope of seeing lady parts after finding this out since ELAINE is so attractive…;)
Her fight reel shows another dimension to her onscreen abilities and she sure served up some action moves in spy comedy “One Sharp Girl”. Additionally her vocal prowess as a theatre actress and her experience as a teacher/private coach for aspiring actors is indicative of ELAINE’s diverse competencies. This month has all the makings of an auspicious one and since ELAINE has caught our fancy lately, there’ll be a measure of devotion coming her way.
Television has a way in accentuating the female form and I must say the comely JESSICA LUZA is some looker. You may have seen her guest-starring on the very first episode of the Raven Symone sitcom “State Of Georgia” as the aspiring actress who gets sarcastically rejected. It’s about making a quick impression in one’s young career and this ravishing cutie has shown she’s more than capable of pushing herself on film. As the rebellious Teri opposite Lucas Till in “The Lost & Found Family”, JESSICA displayed the tenacity of an individual with a single-mindedness that’s to be admired. In fact, that solid performance has become a stepping stone towards what will be heaps of success for this glowing prospect. Check out her excellent reel (above) covering her work in commercials as well as an actress and host.
She’s already nabbed a lead role in the drama “At The Top Of The Pyramid” that sees her vying for the captaincy of Centreville Wildcat Cheerleaders with her squad members. With all that feminine tension, prepare for the cattiness to rear its ugly head despite the family-oriented themes of the film. Blessed with her beautiful almond eyes that’s evocative of youthful splendor and the lovably exotic features, there’s so much to be fond of JESSICA. From one of the interviews, JESSICA remarked that she’s firm in her belief to “do one good deed a day”; With such noble standing, there can only be good things for this fabulous newcomer.
MEGHAN McLEOD is an effervescent talent with a sparkle in her eyes that’s a pointer to how much fun she can be onscreen. As the horny Angela auditioning to be a burlesque dancer in the romp of a musical comedy “Fishnet” which also stars Rebekah Kochan, she leaves us with the sweetest of tastes in our mouths. Praised for her crass yet likable performance in “Fishnet”, she jazzes up the wacky, colorful film with the right amount of naughtiness yet is a darling beneath it all. A comedienne of the honey blonde persuasion, she can certainly play up the sexiness in lingerie or otherwise and for being a sweetheart, she certainly is on and off set…:) Tapped to appear in an episode of Season 3 of “Hung”, will MEGHAN get to be Full Frontal on the comedic front I wonder….a great vehicle for her risible personality. Her maiden appearance in the satirical series “Hung” could just reinforce the credence of being dubbed the modern day Judy Holliday, the comedy musical icon.
I’m besotted by the Southern accent she peruses in the first few minutes of her reel (above)…I reckon she would be right at home on that amusingly profane show “Eastbound And Down”. If you’re enamored too, the MEGHAN McLEOD OFFICIAL SITE is the portal to read up on her latest exploits. There’s an infectious energy and love that revolves around everything she’s done (her myspace page noticeably has the label of ‘Atomic Blonde’). MEGHAN has no doubt triggered an increasingly adoring reaction to her work as an actress.
Numerous glowing reviews of her stint on “Fringe” as FBI Agent Dawson and also as Captain Pike in a reenactment from Star Trek by “The Girls on Film” project points to the growing appeal of KATERINA TAXIA. Kudos to KATERINA and fellow actress Ashleigh Harrington for replacing the male testosterone with their much needed female poise as the young James T. Kirk and Pike in their tough tete-a-tete from the 2009 remake of Star Trek (taking over the parts of Chris Pine and Bruce Greenwood). These gender swapping productions are awesome and Trekkies as well as J J Abrams would surely approve! I love that they are calling this Killer Movie Recreations as the women on it have pure talent and we can’t wait for more exciting stuff from “The Girls on Film” project…of course, don’t forget to rope in the vivacious Miss KATERINA TAXIA! She’s a dynamic actress known for her ability to capture the facets of the characters she plays effortlessly. Certainly her role as Cleopatra on Discovery Channel’s “Cleopatra’s Palace and the Real Cleopatra” which brought her worldwide exposure showcased KATERINA’s enigmatic qualities befitting the regal authority of the Queen Of The Nile she played.
Drama is definitely her forte but KATERINA can also provide some of the more light-hearted moments. Watch her reel (above) and make sure to look out for the funny segment “Breastmilk, a Bad Dog Improv” when her character resorts to pumping breast milk into her cooking when her carton runs out…hehe. By the way when KATERINA dons them black glasses in some of the features she’s done, doesn’t this brunette cutie remind you of comedienne Tina Fey. Best of all, KATERINA is fully of friendly charm and being one of her fans, I was super glad we managed to re-connect on FACEBOOK. It’s still amazing to see her every now and again on TV alongside Anna Torv whenever there’s reruns of Fringe right here in Asia. There’s no better time than now to savor this excellent rising starlet from Canada.
Seeing the beguiling TIFFANY PULVINO decked as a biker chick for the newest season of “Sons Of Anarchy” is a result of intense dedication on her part. Huge Props to TIFFANY for her upcoming appearance on the hard-hitting FX series. If you’re a fan of vigilante justice meted out by outlaw motorheads, check out the TIFFANY PULVINO FACEBOOK FAN PAGE as she’s stunning with the helmet and black shades…A Genuine TV Siren in the making! One of the hardest working performers today, the sky’s the limit for her as 2011 will be a prolific year for this captivating cutie. Before she’s enshrined in popularity, I figured I better avidly rave about this sweetheart. With her ravishing features, she may often be endearingly thought of as a Hispanic/Middle Eastern Hottie but TIFFANY is actually 100% a New Yorker with charmingly delectable Italian-American roots. I can attest to her friendly appeal as she has been warm and affectionate since we started connecting on Facebook. In addition to her drive, it’s her graciousness and onscreen talent most notably in dramatic fare that will get her to where she wants to be. This raven-haired exotic beauty is going places, bedazzling us along the way.
Don’t miss her sizzle reel (above) as there’s a gripping rape scene at the end. Those are never easy to flesh out nor watch for that matter but TIFFANY is remarkable at evoking sympathy for the abused character she plays. TIFFANY is teeming with enthusiastic energy and no role is too small for her, a sign of her professionalism that’s so laudable. Ever present on multiple platforms, from her indie beginnings to her thriving career in Features/TV Shows and the web, she’s more than fulfilled her tagline of ‘AN ETHNIC BEAUTY RAGES FORWARD’.
“One Life To Live” and “All My Children” may have been canceled and gone the way of digital but that doesn’t mean we’ll be deprived of our Soap Opera Hotties. Especially since, BRIE MATTSON has been announced as the new love interest of Noah, a central figure in the long-running, still going strong soap “The Young And The Restless”. There’s something about beauties with BRIE in their name that makes you swoon, think Alison Brie, Brie Larson, Brie Gabrielle and of course BRIE MATTSON herself who is an absolute doll. Have you seen her so adorably sexy on “Desperate Housewives” as Kimberly who together with Jacqui Holland are the dates of Max and Charles Carver (playing the Scavo twins). First impressions are indeed everything as Felicity Huffman’s Lynette Scavo assumes that they’re more akin to tramps than sweethearts in the amusing scene (check out the first minutes of her reel above). Being judgmental of someone is human nature but one thing we can agree on is that BRIE is a radiant young lady on and off set. Wondering why I’m announcing BRIE as a Vixen this Summer?? If you’re ever lucky enough to spot BRIE in a bikini complementing that luscious 36-24-37 figure of hers, then you have to believe there’s truly a heaven on earth!! You’ll discover that BRIE has the easy-going appeal that’s thoroughly fascinating…:)
The BRIE MATTSON OFFICIAL SITE lets you in on her acting-related stuff and beyond. Brie is in fact a honey blonde even though she’s predominantly seen on screen or print as a brunette or redhead but she’ll still catch our eyes without fail. In addition to her sensually come-hither glow, she’s more than capable of projecting the poignant moments on film as she aptly did in the Publix Commercial (see above). Guest Spots on “NCIS”, “Eastwick” and “Parenthood” have led to the aforementioned major role on “The Young And The Restless”, a sure sign her star is burning brightly in 2011.
