JOSEPHINE DECKER has an understated charm that will strike a chord with any film buff. Having chatted with her on Facebook, her soft, personable facets came to the fore making my day as she would many of her fans. She may have suggested to start this feature in May but since JOSEPHINE is on the radar at SXSW 2013 this week, I’m jumping the gun to spotlight her. This willowy cutie is appearing in the highly anticipated “Loves Her Gun”, a darkly romantic drama of a young woman’s transformation from victim to fighter via her use of weapons. The whole cast has been called fascinatingly organic and there lies the everlasting appeal of indie talents such as JOSEPHINE. She strives for the untypical and the JOSEPHINE DECKER OFFICIAL SITE lists her catalogue of exceptional work in all forms of entertainment.
She of course first caught the eye as the girl on Craigslist in Sundance favorite “Uncle Kent”, a drama where relationships are either helped or hindered by tech. JOSEPHINE was a director at that time and together with leading lady Jennifer Prediger had minimal acting experience. Both have seen their career blossomed after venturing into the film world so kudos to their versatility. JOSEPHINE has even delved into horror as an amateur ghost hunter in “Saturday Morning Massacre, along the way surprising many a viewer with a daringly long sex scene. “Autoerotic” is yet another gem where she gets into a little lesbian romp with a pregnant woman no less. Her bold choices will ensure JOSEPHINE gets a fair bit of attention in what will be a riveting journey on the big screen.
The enthrallment HANNAH BRYAN can stir is incredibly telling considering she’s 100% foxy with one of the sweetest faces in the industry. “Abraham Lincoln Vs Zombies” is the indie horror feature where HANNAH gained a legion of followers who became hooked on her sensuality. Apparently on the DVD extras, a full minute is devoted to a crew member’s fascination with her and while Bill Oberst Jr gives a masterful performance as Abe Lincoln we should not forget how HANNAH visually impacted on viewers. She plays Sophia, the young woman who aids survivors of a zombie epidemic during the Civil War and affirms she has the ability to deal with various emotions onscreen. “Rites Of Spring” is another film where her performance was riveting as Alyssa, the victim of a human sacrificial ritual. Some of her scenes were so intense, she even injured her right shoulder for more than a year after being hung from a rope in the barn. It’s highly commendable how she went to great lengths to make it amazingly realistic.
On an interesting side note, she had an uncredited body double to do her “nude” kill scene in “Rites Of Spring” and while some may earmarked her as a future Scream Queen, Hannah is equally comfortable in different genres. She does change gears in the upcoming drama “Coming From All Sides” which deals with the pressures facing people with financial difficulties which is something that rings true in our daily lives. We already know HANNAH’s ravishing and soon we’ll be awed by an upcoming talent with an excellent range.
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.
The bewitching ELIZABETH CHOMKO makes us want to tune in every week especially since she’s readily mesmerizing in the new series “Common Law”. As Alex MacFarland Mitchell, the ex-wife of Wes (one-half of the leading men on the show), her role is one of emotional woes as the estranged couple work through their divorce. Engaging characters are the strength of “Common Law” with the consistently excellent cast from Sonya Walger to ELIZABETH herself providing the charming effect on viewers. ELIZABETH’s stunningly gorgeous eyes does indeed play their part and she should by now be acknowledged as one of the hottest women on TV in 2012. Let’s hope we continue to see her in an expanded capacity on the series as she steadily garners a growing list of admirers…:)
She has been highly lauded for being riveting on the theatre scene and naturally her captivating beauty is now enriching the small screen. More than ever big stars such as Rachel Nichols (from Continuum) are migrating to TV like bees to honey and in the midst of competitiveness, it’s great that upcoming faces are still given a platform to dazzle. It augurs well for everyone as we’re presented with a treasure trove of talents such as Miss ELIZABETH CHOMKO. Blessed with a amiable personality, our hearts are veritably set on her.

The ethereal temptress who has appeared in riveting horror features as well alongside Amber Heard on the saucy NBC series “The Playboy Club”. Curvaceous Cutie Deneen portrays the enigmatic Hecate-Freya in the web series “Western X” who certainly has many mysterious facets which makes her all the more inviting!
Erin Gray in “The Guild”
She’s on the Women of Sci Fi panel which includes Dina Meyer of “Starship Troopers” fame. Known as the sci-fi Sex Kitten, the star of “Buck Rogers” recently returned on popular series “The Guild”. She’s certainly an everlasting beauty!
With Cannes in full swing, what better than to feature Clémentine Poidatz, the Fair-Skinned maiden who would fit right in the glitzy french riveira. Does it matter that she’s not there as we still can ogle at Clémentine all the same. After all she is heating up television with riveting appearance in shows “Nicolas Le Floch” and recently on “Les hommes de l’ombre” (translation: The people behind the scenes). French audiences must be already warming up to her for she can be seen cutting herself with a razor blade in a suicide attempt from one episode…how dramatic! Furthermore, she’s a scene stealer in the music video “Walking On A Line” by French power pop band Pony Pony Run Run. As you will see there’s a central theme to her work.
She has played Marie Joséphine of Savoy in the 2006 film “Marie Antoinette” directed by Sofia Coppola and her breakthrough role came in “Frontier Of Dawn”, a tale of longing and obsession. She was magical as Eve, the third wheel who complicates the callous affair of a young photographer and his lover. For someone whose cites one of her favorite things as being in love, Clémentine perfectly captured the essence of her character. She has gravitated to playing characters whose lives revolves around romantic situations. Indeed love does transcend borders or even languages and with her being so down to earth (she thinks America has so many good actresses that they wouldn’t need her), there might come a fondness for her soon enough!
Emmy Rossum and Shanola Hampton in “Shameless”
Shamelessly infatuated with Emmy Rossum and Shanola Hampton would be what many fans feel for this hot actresses who amped up the sass and sex factor in the compelling series “Shameless”. Taking on the role of Fiona Gallagher and Veronica Fisher, they both embodied both their playfully wild as well as affectionate sides with accomplished ease. The running of a personal x-rated home webcam in Veronica’s case and the bare-all drama including raunchy love making of Fiona highlights the rawness of the show. As opposed to the original British series, this US Version coveys its own cultural nuances and stands as a sensation on its own merit. Shanola is overwhelmingly pleasant to her fans and while she’ll be missed at the “Shameless” panel at Comic Con, sexy siren Emmy is present plus we do get to see the alluring Shanola in the Season 2 sneak peek…:)
Megan Hilty in “Dorothy Of Oz”
The immensely cute Megan Hilty joins forces with “Glee” sweetheart Lea Michele as the voice talents of the upcoming 3D animated film, “Dorothy of Oz”. Both are set to attend Comic Con and Lea will be singing a song from the film along with fellow stage veteran Megan Hilty…now that’s a dynamic duo with some soaring vocal prowess! Lea will be voicing Dorothy while Megan is China Princess, a doll who bands together with Dorothy to stop the evil Jester who wants control of Oz. While Megan mostly portrays sweethearts onscreen, I remembered her best in the indie horror flick “Bitter Feast”. As Peg, the sarcastic host of a cooking show, she was a constant thorn for her co-host chef, unaware that her constant mocking might just kick start his killing spree. Be it on stage, film, TV and now animation, Megan is an exceptional performer.
Jeri Ryan in “Mortal Kombat Legacy”
She entranced me in a big way as the sultry ball buster of a district attorney Jessica Devlin in “Shark”. The take no prisoners attitude and constant squabbling with her nemesis Sebastian Stark (a top-notch James Woods) made her exceedingly fascinating to watch…i couldn’t get enough especially when the seas From her Seven of Nine Trekkie days to her immaculate body of work on numerous hit shows, Jeri is deserving of the honor of being one of TV’s Baddest Babes. And on the subject of bodies, Jeri has quite the voluptuous one emphasizing why she’s celebrated as a Sex Symbol. As well as being Dr Kate Murphy on “Body of Proof”, returned as Sonya Blade in “Mortal Kombat Legacy” web series and is in the new season of Warehouse 13. With that naughty glint in her eyes, Jeri stirs our loins on such an appetizing level!
Crystal Reed and Holland Roden in “Teen Wolf”
Even though I’m manic for Holland Roden because she’s one of the nicest actresses in this era, we shouldn’t forget to admire Crystal Reed who together with Holland are setting our pulses racing on “Teen Wolf”. Both are probably going to mesmerize at Comic Con seeing how they’re gracing the momentous convention. I’m betting wolf packs of rabid fans are lining up to keep an eye out for both these captivating young stars. “Teen Wolf” has taken the world by storm and even in Asia, it’s been the top trending topic on Twitter thanks to Crystal and Holland. Their onscreen personas as Allison Argent and Lydia Martin may be on polar opposites but it’s the uneasy ‘frenemy’ vibe between the two thats absorbing! Young Hollywood is looking mighty fine with these two ladies delivering an irresistibly foxy bite!
Sarah Wayne Callies in “The Walking Dead”
If ever that is an ideal woman to be fawned upon, Sarah Wayne Callies would always be a strong candidate as she’s highly fancied for her intoxicating comeliness. Season 2 of “The Walking Dead” can’t come soon enough as we eagerly await to follow her perilous journey in the zombie wasteland as Lori Grimes who shows true grit as a survivor. She did reveal that she hoped Lori gets to show her ugly side as the protector of her son and evolving into a matriach of sorts. Get ready for Sarah to enthrall even more if it really happens. Remembered fondly as Dr Sarah Tancredi from “Prison Break”, she’s noted for infusing her roles with a realistic experiential touch that’s riveting. We’ll be walking to the ends of the earth to get a chance to meet her, well actually we can as she’s on “The Walking Dead” Panel at Comic Con.
Britt Robertson in “The Secret Circle”
I may never have been part of this teen generation whose lives revolve around social media, self expression and of course celebrity worship but one can see they’re certainly becoming the apex of what’s cool. Hence you have Teen Idols who are quick to shape the entertainment world tapping on the desire of every teen out there. Enter Britt Robertson, the female lead of upcoming witch fest “The Secret Circle” who could very well be the next starlet that casts a magical spell on the youth of today. She of course plays Cassie Blake whose relocation to her mother’s hometown sparks off the discovery of powers beyond her comprehension. Already many have hailed her ability to handle the complexities of her roles notably as Lux Cassidy in “Life Unexpected” and she excels once more as Cassie, the teen destined for the witching hour.
Thanks to her scene stealing ways in “The Lincoln Lawyer” opposite the suave Matthew Mcconaughey, ERIN CARUFEL has buzz circling all around her. Who can forget the priceless scene she has in the thrilling drama that has her directing an F-Bomb at Matthew’s slick lawyer Mick Haller (watch above). While her own character Leslie Faire has a disdain for smart-alecky types, you can’t deny there’s a sexual undercurrent between the two attorneys. It’s precisely this chemistry she has with Mr Mcconaughey that has eyes affectionately trained on her. It’s going to get even more bustling for ERIN as she’s in the cast alongside Amanda Seyfried in upcoming thriller Gone. Early behind the scenes photos reveal that she’s a policewoman decked in Portland PD attire plus there’s a few shots of ERIN CARUFEL and Amanda Seyfried…What a stunning duo if i might add! “Be bold. Be bold with lots of charm and lots of professionalism.” This is one of her quotes that’s so inspirational towards our endeavors and she’s proven to the world the keys to success, no matter big or small are indeed perseverance and determination. She’s quickly become a red carpet darling too and totally entitled to her place in the sun…:)
Beauty Queen, Kickboxing champion, Director of numerous plays and now ERIN’s swiftly becoming a firm favorite of movie fans and the press. Go see “Elena Undone” as ERIN does wonders in her role of a church-going women with a contempt for lesbians. Her journey has taken her from guest-starring in TV shows such as “CSI Miami” to the heights she has achieved today in several meaty roles. In terms of beauty, she’s immaculate. In terms of onscreen presence, she’s irresistible. Exciting things are happening for ERIN and we’ll be there every step of the way to enjoy the fruits of her labor.
