DEBRIANNA MANSINI is a multi-hyphenate with an engaging charm whose work on Film, TV and now the web has to be held in esteem. She stars in “The Lying Game”, the drama series that left critics and viewers alike longing for more with every episode. That has a lot to do with its amazing cast and you know I’m referring to the ladies. Surreptitious identity switches, a deluge of devious characters and witty sarcasm has made “The Lying Game” as much a guilty pleasure as Sara Shepard’s book series it’s based on. Of course, DEBRIANNA adds the spicy tension as Clarice, the foster mum of Emma (Alexandra Chando who actually plays identical twins), proving that antagonists can be just as engrossing. We do love our fix of juicily wicked behavior in a woman! Check out the intense confrontational clip (above) as Clarice meets her match in the equally tigerish Emma or could that be Sutton, her twin! If you though she’s brilliant as a meanie onscreen, you must have seen DEBRIANNA at her foxy best in “Crazy Heart” back in 2009. This is a lady who tempted The Dude Jeff Bridges into joining her in a saucy liaison if you will. Well, that Italian allure of hers more than does the trick…:)
It’s easy to see why New Mexico is considered the ‘Land Of Enchantment’ when its given us gifted entertainers such as DEBRIANNA as well as the “Roswell” TV Series in the 90s and more recently Snake Cups made famous by Craig Ferguson/Mary McCormack. DEBRIANNA’s star is set to burn even brighter having snagged a meaty role alongside Sean Astin and Sara Paxton in “The Boys of Abu Ghraib”, the indie feature on the lives of US soldiers stationed at the notorious Iraqi prison. Already her web series “Cyphers” has been roundly praised for its innovative content. She’s both a writer and actress on “Cyphers” which has been billed as an eco-drama with our environment being the catalyst of the mysterious episodic plotlines. It’s refreshing to hear her say that there’s an urgent need to rekindle the artistic culture that’s slowly eroding, something which she is trying to rectify with her creative energy on the series. She’s most definitely a woman of substance.
