 alt=  alt=

Rachel Noll is on the cusp of becoming a much sought after actress and is already giving us a glimpse of her relatably mesmerizing potential. In addition to being a delectable face onscreen, she’s also a writer and producer with the most notable thing to date being her feature film “Don’t Pass My By”. It’s a vignette style drama about regret, love and second chances which she wrote, produced, and played a starring role. It has already been released on Video on demand and DVD worldwide. Her character is Hannah Walters, a young woman who finds out she has terminal cancer, and then meets the love of her life. Funny how love sometimes work that way in not always having that perfect timing. Rachel depicts with soulfulness in the being of this woman who is grappling with matters of the heart and her deteriorating health. In fact all the female characters are beautifully written and one can almost fathom there’s going to be tear-inducing moments in reference to the film’s melancholic tone. “Don’t Pass My By” is a must-see especially since February is the month of love and we’re less than two weeks away from Valentine’s Day…:)

She also has 2 other features in development, one called “Daisy Delivered”, a quirky romantic dramedy whereby she co-wrote the script and will be playing Daisy, the title character. She’s also working on a film called “Follow the River”, this time round an intimate, character driven western. She will be the lead female role, Annie Denzil and she doubled up as a scriptwriter in this project. Aside from those features, Rachel just completed three short films that will be premiering shortly and has supporting roles in the films “Me Without You” and “The Jesuit”, both currently in post production. In the action thriller “The Jesuit” which tells of a man’s quest for revenge, Rachel joins an amazing cast which includes Tim Roth, Tommy Flanagan, Shannyn Sossamon and Paz Vega. With her eye for bringing to life stories that stir the hearts and for being emotionally invested in the roles she’s essayed, the spotlight and audience approval is quickly heading in Rachel’s direction.

 alt=  alt=

With a creative instinct that should be applauded, Adrienne Wehr is beautifully diverse in everything she does. A cross between Sharon Stone and Olivia Newton-John, Adrienne should see admiring glances coming her way, more so since she’s also a wearer of many hats. Producer, filmmaker, actress, educator…she’s done the lot and is already an award winner for her indie feature “The Bread My Sweet”. She is also the recipient of the prestigious Opal Award, granted by Women in Film and Media, for outstanding achievement and visionary excellence. Sundance has done a great job of featuring the works of women from print to screen and it’s no surprise to see Adrienne getting the chance to shine at this year’s revered festival.

She is one of the stars in the 70s romantic drama “The Immaculate Reception” that melds the infamous playoff game between the Steelers and the Raiders whilst taking us on the coming of age journey of an adolescent boy. Expect the “American Hustle” look among the charismatic players of the film as we are given a taste of how life and love blossomed in the hard-working steel town of Pittsburgh, PA. Adrienne is often referred to as a multi-disciplinary performing artist and her indie background adds to her being a fascinating watch irrespective of medium. In fact, in a play titled Without Ruth which ran in 2013, she was commended for bringing a lot of emotional dimension to her role. Having achieved success outside of the Hollywood mould, it won’t be long before Adrienne gains even more recognition.
