Yet again a Southern actress is steadily growing as an actress of blossoming ability and JESSICA LEMON WILKINSON has all the makings of a burgeoning performer to take note of. We already know the James Franco starrer, “As I Lay Dying” which is a take on the 1930 classic by Faulkner is gathering hype by the minute. In all likelihood, so shall the female cast inherit the love as well. JESSICA does star with luminaries such as Beth Grant (who is the central figure of the drama) and Ahna O’Reilly, making it a trio of adept women who can bring emotional depth to telling of a story. As the director, James Franco must have personally had an inkling that they were the right choices to be in the movie and after the premiere, he will be proven right.
Theatre is where JESSICA honed her skills to enchant viewers where critics have praised not only her presence on stage but also her singing. It’s about moving people and she’s put in her due diligence as someone whose work we need to admire. Remember to check out her demo reel at the JESSICA LEMON WILKINSON OFFICIAL SITE. 2013 could well be the breakthrough year for her and the juicy roles are sure to follow suit.
Stars of tomorrow are certainly emerging at CANNES and MISTY UPHAM is one who is on song to steal our hearts with a series of upcoming roles. Most significant of all, she will be at CANNES walking down the red carpet with leading man Benicio Del Toro for the premiere of “Jimmy P”. Buzz is swirling around for this film that deals with loss from a Native American perspective and surely eyes are on MISTY who in the press photos can be seen in scenes with Benicio. Apparently MISTY’s character JANE has a romantic liaison with Benicio’s Jimmy P which will be talked about by many. In fact, she has been a scene stealer before in the critically acclaimed hit “Frozen River” alongside Melissa Leo and it would be fitting if she garnered the plaudits this time around. Having been nominated for best supporting actress at the Independent Spirit Awards for embodying Lila Littlewolf in “Frozen River”.
As Lila the widowed Mohawak mum looking to reclaim her son from the mother-in-law while smuggling immigrants, MISTY was a revelation and showcased how great she is at delivering on conflicting emotions. She was able to sustain the attention of audiences who must have been fascinated with the multi-layered role MISTY so successfully made believable. Slated to star with the legendary Meryl Streep in “August: Osage County,” a dark comedy based on a play, things are looking very rosy indeed. It’s a key role for MISTY as Johnna Monevata, a Cheyenne woman hired as a live-in housekeeper by the Weston family whom has demanding matriarch Violet Weston of course played by Meryl Streep. So start admiring this most graceful Native American talent certain to make waves the world over!
With Cannes 2013 only days away, the focus is on emerging women of the screen and VELINDA GODFREY is someone we’ll be adoring soon enough. Whether in France or the world over, she’ll be celebrated as her film “Adonis” is screening at the American Pavilion Emerging Filmmaker Showcase at this year’s Cannes! With its innovative use of green-screen, we’re taken into a colorful toy world with the premise of cuteness by way of Adonis the dog who turns into the center of attraction. The other enchanter of the short film is of course VELINDA who plays JENNI and as the director David Dibble himself readily admits she’s a honey; ‘Every Girl Here Is Beautiful’ being the effusive words by David which is a clear reference to the captivating VELINDA. There’s also Ernie Hudson adding comic flavor to this most intriguing of stories.
There’s every reason to drop by the VELINDA GODFREY OFFICIAL SITE and being smitten with her will come thereafter. We clearly put the cutest actresses on a pedestal and VELINDA has all the right facets to keep us entranced. Those who are avid viewers would have seen her in “The Truth About Angels” which also starred Candice Accola of “The Vampire Diaries” fame. It wouldn’t surprise me if the very pretty VELINDA attains a similar level of fame in a relatively short span of time. Seeing how “Adonis” is being well-received at so many film festivals, she’s set to be in the limelight.
We do love the sweethearts of the independent scene and NATALIE has a refreshing geniality that beguiles. Her role as the daring skeptic Andi of a ghost hunting team on “Episode 50″ is memorable for being genuine and tense. Plenty of jump scares and eerie atmospheric moments which some have liken to being just as scary as those from “Grave Encounters”. With the cast being made up of several guys, it’s always great to see a female figure we are compelled to take a liking to and hope survives the ghostly experiences. Natalie is thoroughly fetching to the eye so it’s a given for viewers to watch her unscathed until the last frame…:)
Remember to check out her photo gallery at the “NATALIE WETTA OFFICIAL SITE” for a look at how wonderfully enchanting she really is. NATALIE just landed a co-star role on the new MTV show “Blogger Girls” which is a hilarious sketch comedy show directed by Michael Showalter scheduled to air in 2013. That would be quite the platform to launch NATALIE into a starlet with a rising popularity. Having also just finished being the lead in the film, “Second Chances” by IFP writer Justin Ferrarato, she could very well be sought after on a range of mediums.
LILAN BOWDEN is undeniably cute with the Capital “C” and has that lovably, infectious appeal warranting praise from everyone who’s in contact with her. There’s an endearing quirkiness about her and it’s so enamoring, I’m in awe of her pixie daintiness. While she’s done her fair share of improv, LILAN is steadily blossoming on the independent arena. Because of the number of zombie flicks that LILAN has starred in, I think it’s time she should be cast on “The Walking Dead”. Besides the SyFy feature “Zombie Apocalypse” which she starred with Taryn Manning, she also dazzled in “Nazis at the Center of the Earth” and “Rise Of The Zombies”. In “Zombie Apocalypse”, she played Myrah, an archer with a penchant for shooting zombies which I’m betting was tons of fun to embody.
Many are also commenting she’s due for a big role soon and LILAN will be so very memorable when it happens! It’s incredible to see just how much sweetness is etched on her gorgeous face, a selling point of hers among the many talents she already has. LILAN does remind us a great deal of Rachel Bilson, the similarly sexy grin tellingly exhibited by LILAN is captivatingly precious. We dudes don’t know how lucky we are when we are able to celebrate the comely ingénue that is Miss LILAN BOWDEN…:)
Rest assured that on the independent scene, there’s a bevy of up and comers such as the stunning AVA BRUNINI who exudes such an enticing persona. She stars in the newest slasher called “Into The Woods” which is survival horror set in the outskirts of LA and chances are AVA may just be the Final Girl! A natural at projecting the captivating facets required, she’s a dream girl in our eyes. It’s also great to see her plying her trade in interesting genres such as those of the terror persuasion.
In the sci-fi horror flick “Solid State”, AVA rubs shoulders with esteemed Scream Queens Debbie Rochon and Suzi Lorraine. There’s zombies and mayhem as an American Rock Band encounters a meteor which is the source of chaos in this tongue-in-cheek satire. AVA’s character Cynthia is a cross between a saucy cowgirl and hippie chick, pulling off the look with consummate ease. In fact, she’s been lauded as being notably beautiful onscreen by Miss Suzi Lorraine herself and we couldn’t agree more. AVA also into the thick of the action and who doesn’t want to see a very hot girls with huge guns shooting them zombies! Check out the cool video (above) of both AVA and DEBBIE in a first-person-shooter sequence…:) AVA could herself be heading towards fame as a blossoming Scream Queen and we’ll be there to watch it happen.
Beauty and brains can be an enchanting combo especially when alluding to delectable enchanter ASHLEY AVIS. This talented gal has been in the industry as an actress, model and writer/producer, each time creating works that aim to stir the hearts of audiences. A look at her concept trailer “Watch Me” aka “Guardian” which deals with horrifying sexual trauma is so poignant, especially this year with violence against women so rampant worldwide; the rapes in India for example creating such notoriety. Just the boldness of ASHLEY to delve in this darkest of themes should be applauded, an eye-opener to the endless suffering of victims. She is an evocative actress, transitioning between emotions effortlessly and it’s not always the grim aspects of features that she excels. Give her a witty role such as the one in “The Cynical Life of Harper Hall” where as the main character, she relates her horrifying dating experiences in LA which for many is a bitter reality. Even Talk-show host Craig Ferguson has admitted it’s hard to find decent men in LA and we too can be downright sardonic to realize that…lol.
ASHLEY’s accomplishments also include starting the production company ALCHEMY PICTURES which is churning out some intriguing independent projects that cover everything from comedy to horror. I’m already amazed by how proficient ASHLEY is at juggling a multitude of tasks! Head over to the ASHLEY AVIS OFFICIAL SITE and be wowed by this fetching hottie. She can also be seen in the spoof-heavy creepy comedy “Paranormal Movie” which is out on DVD and on ITUNES. Envisage ASHLEY to expand her following as she sterlingly wows us both in front and behind the camera.
Yet again another hottie in the ethereal form of ELINOR CRAWLEY makes her maiden appearance on “Vikings” and she does have comely features many will take a liking to. ELINOR plays Thyri, the daughter of Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), a high-ranking and ruthless Viking leader who is at odds with ambitious Ragnar Lothbrok. We soon learn Thryi is betrothed to a man old enough to be her grandfather! Expect ELINOR to become a regular on “Vikings” and she’s also about to dazzle in another costume drama series called “The White Queen” only this time as a princess in feudal England. Women are this time the centerpiece as these are episodic tales of their quest for power….mighty interesting indeed!
ELINOR does have a delectable adorableness and having indicated both her interest to be featured as well as the greatness of my blog, I can only advocate her pleasantly affable attributes. She may not have been the first Welsh actress to be lauded here (she’s from Cardiff) but rest assured she can take our breath away with her angelic cuteness. While the first few episodes of “Vikings” herald the showcase of Canadian Vixens, the next few will see the emergence of actresdes from the UK who should soon get their set of devoted fans. ELINOR looks best placed to blossom into a TV Sweetheart.
