Isn’t it awesome that Dances With Films 2013 can acquaint us with blossoming talents such as COLLEEN RYAN who just appeared hours ago at the premiere of her short film “How To Be A Female Director”. Looking ever so foxy in an elegant white top, she’s mesmerizing and turning heads of quite a number of people. She has impeccable fashion sense and the pictures (above) don’t lie. While we are deprived of a trailer for “How To Be A Female Director”, COLLEEN will most certainly bring color to the black and white satire on the issue of making it big as a female features director. Is it a marketing ploy not to release a trailer online to pique interest….well if COLLEEN is the poster girl of the short film (as depicted on the Dances With Films website) and having her dressed in retro fashion, then it’s got me immediately interested!
As every one knows I’m a firm supporter of the leading ladies and it’s amazing that COLLEEN is the central figure as KAY who is on a quest to find success in the directing field. There’s a little bit of Audrey Hepburn I must say and there’s an elfin-like beauty with COLLEEN even away from the camera. Don’t forget to visit the <a href="http://www.colleenonscreen.com/" target="_blank" COLLEEN RYAN OFFICIAL SITE and you’ll be similarly enchanted!
Texas gals have often been viewed as being sweet, funny, and smart which definitely applies to the gloriously adorable MADI GOFF. A multi-hyphenate with a hippie sensibility, she’s full of creative energy and currently harnesses that dynamism as a writer, actress, improviser and stand-up comic in LA. Surprisingly it’s a horror flick that MADI’s bound to make a lasting impact and does so with sensationally hideous effect in “I Didn’t Come Here To Die”. As the high-strung, nerdy Miranda, the booze-filled trip she’s on leads to a stomach-churning repercussion she’ll never see coming. Let’s face it, we snigger at people getting maimed in ingenious ways and this film zeros in on the stupid decisions we humans choose with a savagery that never lets up, even trumping that sick show “1000 Ways To Die’! Check out the the production clip (above) from “I Didn’t Come Here To Die” as MADI shows us just how resounding of a screamer she is whilst in ghastly makeup that could rival The Ring’s devilish Sadako! It’s a renaissance of sorts for satires on 80s Horror and the New Orleans Horror Film Fest happening this week is the place to be if you’re up for some of the most shocking moments perpetrated for visual consumption.
Furthermore premier horror portal Bloody Disgusting are feting MADI as a standout for her turn as Miranda, whilst exasperating as we know how geeks sometimes can be does have endearingly redeeming traits. She smoothly pulls off both the amiable and irksome facets of her character. A visit to the MADI GOFF OFFICIAL SITE reveals more about the many hues of this colorful hottie, her ‘bye-o-grrr-fee’ (ie. biography) a must read! This may be the time to celebrate Halloween month but it seems more and more like the Attack Of The Cuties with us growing in fondness with the exploits of the lovely Miss MADI GOFF.
My motto has always been to search for Cuties in the industry and today I’m nudging JULIET LOPEZ in the spotlight. As you will find out, she has a supporting role in the the mushy romance “Ten Year” which screens at TIFF 2011 on 12 and 14th September. Ensemble casts such as the one in “Ten Year” are always fascinating, throwing up a myriad of personalities, some more likable than others in a much truer representation of every day life. Not forgetting we get to be entertained by Fresh Faces such as JULIET who appears alongside seasoned ones such as Lucy Hale, Kate Mara, Rosario Dawson, Lynn Collins and Jenna Dewan (her husband Channing Tatum is in this film too!). In the throes of this babe fest, my only gripe yet again is that we’ve deprived of a trailer!! JULIET herself is undoutably relishing her work in the comedy genre and not just on the big screen. She’s swiftly making waves on the web as is the cast of “Enter The Dojo”, the satire on martial arts schools. Watch her in Episode 3 (above) as JULIET plays thoughtful yet timid Cynthia, learning the fine art of protecting oneself from rape. For anyone who has ever attended self defense classes, it’s easy to identify with her character nuances as JULIET is so relatable as the aspiring martial artist.
Stealthily inserting humor at opportune moments in that very episode does augur well for her as a future comedienne. With such a personable and interesting facet to JULIET, it clearly encourages us want to find out more about her, especially when she puts on that charming smile. Will we be enamored of her just like Romeo was with his paramour of the same name? Time is absolutely on her side to ensure that happens and viewers would jump at the chance to see more of what she can do…:)
Australian actresses are always dear to my heart and my fondness for them grows tenfold watching fantastic talents like GEORGINA SYMES shine in absorbing projects. She definitely caught my eye in the ultra-violent trailer of “Bad Behaviour” (above) particularly at the end when she got plastered by the huge geyser of blood spewing from a dude’s face!! In the spirit of a classic such as “A Clockwork Orange” which this year incidentally celebrated its 40th anniversary, “Bad Behaviour” itself has some pretty disturbing moments, pushing the boundaries of taste yet keeping that chillingly Australian twist. For sure, this Aussie gore fest and its amazing cast would receive plaudits if ever Malcolm McDowell himself came across it! It lives up to its billing as a Serial Killer Thriller from start to finish. With industry circles likening GEORGINA to a blend of Claire Danes and Cate Blanchett, don’t be surprise if she’s the next emerging starlet from OZ. The fact that she’s a Queensland native, I’m throwing my weight of support behind her for as you know I was a resident there for a good 3 years that it felt like home. Furthermore, “Bad Behavior” was screened at CANNES ensuring plenty of exposure for this wondrous upcoming talent.
GEORGINA is also considered one of Queensland Theatre’s most cherished leading ladies having wowed audiences in the Shakespearean satire “The Alchemist”. She’s expected to do so once again in “FEFU AND HER FRIENDS” playing at Parade Theatres on 6-14 August that is if you are in Australia or plan to pay a visit. Her elegantly styled blonde hair heightens the sassy confidence she projects on film and stage and with such an engaging glow, we can’t help but be charmed. When it comes to GEORGINA, there’s can be only good things to come from her and she’ll be on our radars this year and beyond.
Get ready for the Laotian Goddess KULAP VILAYSACK who this week graces Episode 5 of the medical drama satire “Childrens Hospital”. She was Nurse Sandy in Season 1 and returns in Season 3 as Nurse Kulap for four episodes…crossing my fingers she’s slated to appear in more. If you’re don’t already know, KULAP VILAYSACK is pronounced “cool-lop v-lie-sock” hence she’s already one of the coolest actresses on our planet by virtue of her fashionably unique name…:) With its ever revolving list of eclectic recurring guest stars such as Miss KULAP, “Childrens Hospital” will have you laughing your asses off with its irreverent rudeness on all things medical. Shamelessly mocking beloved shows “House” and “ER”, the punchlines are both amusingly inane and insanely freaky proving laughter is indeed the best medicine. Under the Funny Or Die Banner, KULAP herself had audiences chortling at her many sketches on the web and she makes me absolutely proud to be ASIAN! Oh yeah, don’t think I didn’t notice her ample bosom which she can use to great effect as a comedienne….She Definitely Brings On Tons of Sexy Funny!! Check out the hilarious videos “Bigger Boobs” and “Token”, the latter about needing to be the exclusive eye-catching minority in a room of people. The KULAP VILAYSACK OFFICIAL TUMBLR aka ‘Laotian In Motion’ has a huge following. Could it be because she’s been in a dazzler in “The Office”, amped up the funny as a writer with Sarah Silverman and even had Julia Louise-Dreyfus allow her hand under Julia’s boob in “The New Adventures Of Christine”…hehe.
That’s for you to discover as her tumbler is adorned with interesting slices of life/geek buzz with a healthy slant on Asia-nisms which is thoroughly welcomed. KULAP has arrived in Hollywood as a result of her initiative and be seen work ethic, captivating our socks off as a charming comic. Apparently she’s into hugs so if I was near, I’d give her a huge squeeze for being so awe-inspiring. It’s time we commend her contributions in the entertainment field as she has rightly earned the adulation of her thriving fan base.
