She’s been called a performer with a boundless range and MAYA SANSA has proven to exude the omnipotent talent that goes above just her looks. Of Persian-Italian heritage, MAYA can be considered as one of Europe’s compelling and effusive actresses. In 2000, she was included in the prestigious Shooting Stars by the European Film Promotion which lauds the best young European talents and for me, it holds such fascination as many of the winners have gone to achieve fame. With MAYA being one of the riveting stars appearing in the complex Italian Drama “Dormant Beauty”, it’s fitting we built up excitement for this precious Bella. Alongside the formidable Isabelle Huppert, she’s just as excellent at crafting an emotional bond with audiences. “Dormant Beauty” is screening at the Miami International Film Festival 2013 where you’ll be able to watch her playing Rossa, suicidal drug addict. Just as she catches the eye of a doctor in the film, MAYA who is the essence of captivation will endear herself to the masses.
As a fan, it’s heartening to know there’s a wealth of screen sirens all over the world and I’m now making it a point to connect with those from Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Ireland, Scotland as well as the Nordic countries. With MAYA, she’s been enticing us from the start, her breakthrough role as a innocent yet seductive nurse in Marco Bellochio’s “LA BALIA” led to her rapid rise. Her upcoming feature “Alceste à bicyclette (Cycling With Moliere)” sees MAYA going the arthouse route as a divorcee called Francesca, the love interest of the dramedy where she converses in French throughout. It’s no exaggeration to admire the romanticism instilled by Italian actresses and MAYA has proven to be mesmerizing each time.
LINDSAY BURDGE is going to be one of the most-sought after actresses in 2013 and she represents the spirit of why we are so infatuated with screen sirens. Buzz has descended on this indie hottie thanks to her potently striking performance in “A Teacher” which is making waves at this year’s Sundance Film Fest. You’ll be Hot For Teacher when you watch LINDSAY portray masterfully the dark depths of obsession as a Texas high-school educator who starts an affair with her student. It’s a challenging role of which is a no-no in certain circles but her performance has already seen her being commended as a Sundance Sensation! Since this is an obsession blog of sorts, it’s fitting that LINDSAY is sizzling this feature. I find myself honored to be able to throw the spotlight on an ingénue who is currently the toast in the town of UTAH. She is on the Verge List which recognizes exceptional talents and includes perennial Indie Queens Ambyr Childers and Amy Seimetz.
Besides “A Teacher”, LINDSAY was in another gem called “First Winter” a thought-provoking feature of a commune dealing with the onset of winter. Admittedly, resonating with audiences are her tangible performances that sometimes borders on the controversial and she’s proving to be a memorably compelling face. LINDSAY would be turning into quite the crush for fans I’m sure and that’s healthy considering she’s so genial. Sundance is hailing her name and soon the world will follow suit in idolizing Miss LINDSAY BURDGE.
JESSICA BLANK is going to be all the rage with her turn as sassy Deb Garretti Keenan on “Made In Jersey”, the newest drama to hit TV screens. The ensemble of stunning women in the smart, entertaining show is priceless with JESSICA joining Janet Montgomery (lead actress who plays her sister), Erin Cummings (Bonnie) and Donna Murphy (Mum Darlene) who rounds off the Garretti clan. Even though my efforts to connect with Miss Janet Montgomery didn’t pay off (she so kindly stated her online presence as being private), I will be eternally grateful to JESSICA for accepting me as a fan and friend. Her approachable personality is so desirable very much in keeping with her engaging and foxy presence on the first two episodes of “Made In Jersey”. Many would remember how she proved to be a temptation for Ted Danson in Season 1 of “Bored To Death” where she flaunted her enticingly svelte bod.
This multi-talented dazzler is also a writer and “The Exonerated”, a play she wrote is currently running again off-broadway, in a revival of its original run. The opening cast includes luminaries Stockard Channing, Delroy Lindo and Brian Dennehy with this week cast member being the always lovely Brooke Shields. She did pass me her detailed bio which for now I’m reserving for more future reviews on Miss Jessica. What is memorable for me as I’ve noticed through the years is how down to earth actresses such as JESSICA have been and everyone knows she’s slated to be a big star! Genial and gorgeous, JESSICA has the sweet attributes to make everyone adore her even more.
One of the sexiest brunettes in the industry, TONANTZIN CARMELO is certain to be seen as a fascinating performer in the months ahead. In “Shouting Secrets”, the drama about the fragility of love, TONANTZIN who won Best Actress at the American Indian Film Festival plays the old flame of leading man Wesley (Chaske Spencer of Twilight: Breaking Dawn fame). Just as she did in previous films such as “Shadowheart” and “Thunder Heart Woman”, hers is a laudable performance, embracing her culture while at the same time warming our hearts. Seeing how alluring TONANTZIN has always been on the red carpet, expect her to do the same at this year’s San Diego Film Festival. Fondness is fast growing for indigenous actresses such as Tonantzin who represents the burgeoning talent pool of Native American starlets.
It’s the cue to visit the TONANTZIN CARMELO OFFICIAL SITE and read up on the films she’s been in. I myself was reminded of seeing her for the first time in the creature feature ‘Unearthed” (part of the AfterDark Horror Fest) as a biologist getting into grips with an unnatural occurrence. It’s great to finally connect with her after all this time for she’s heading on the path of becoming an indie sweetheart. Everyone knows how I admire them and TONANTZIN comes with a sweet foxiness which is unmissable…:)
CARRIE MADARIAGA has the distinction of being the First Luiseno Native American actress featured on this blog and she’s an actress/film-maker who is synonymous with the word ‘Captivation’. Encompassing the spirit of ingenuity, she stroked the fires of initiative within her and started building a reputation for Native Americans in TV and film. Her praiseworthy directorial debut will be screeened this Friday, Sep 28 at the Native American Shorts Program and previously premiered at the LA Skins (a native American film festival) Fest to much acclaim. Starring as Coda, a scientist with a questionable reputation, her corruptible soul hidden by a veneer of righteousness. You may have also seen her on the hit show “Weeds” which was her maiden appearance on TV albeit in more light-hearted fashion. In fact, she’s tipped to dazzle in the arena of comedy.
In 2012, CARRIE wrote and directed a sitcom called “Eagle Falls” about a group of young adults living on the Rez aka Reservation which draws comparisons to “Friends”. Currently, this brunette sizzler is also shooting a reality pilot called “living native” about the daily lives of native Americans today. If her versatility on and off camera astounds you, then her lusciousness will lead to a bout of constant enthrallment. From her gorgeous skin tone and curvaceous bod to her magnetic smile, this is the time when appreciative gestures are devoted to the beautiful soul of CARRIE MADARIAGA.
More and more we’re seeing the unique allure of upcoming starlets and MEREDITH ADELAIDE is an unconventional beauty widely expected to charm quite a few hearts. She did address me as being sweet and that alone is reason enough to follow her work. The San Diego Film Festival starting on September 26th will give us a glimpse of this multi-talented performer when she takes to the screen in the short film “A House, A Home”. Based on a song by Alialujah Choir, it has a period-drama feel accompanied by a magical soundtrack. She’s someone who could easily cast spell on you! It should make visiting the MEREDITH ADELAIDE OFFICIAL SITE which is a great way to learn more about this honey.
While she’s been modeling for designers such as Elizabeth Dye and Favor Jewelry, MEREDITH’s emergence on celluloid should gain her the buzz every actress often craves. She had a supporting role on the Amanda Seyfried thriller “Gone” and also guest-starred on TNT’s action series “Leverage”. In the works is the mockumentary “Bad Signs” where she plays the crush of an underwhelming MBA graduate working as a street sign holder. There’s even some controversial figures such as Ron Jeremy and Tonya Harding thrown into the mix. It’s great to watch the smaller independent films as that’s where gems are found and MEREDITH has a divine personality to suggest she could sparkle for some time.
With new TV shows comes the chance to cast our eyes on hot women and SUSAN GALLAGHER has a charming magnetism everyone will love. She of course stars in “The Inbetweeners”, the US remake of the hit British teen comedy as Mrs Cooper, the mum of Simon, who together with his friends are socially awkward yet very horny teens. If her character is based on the British version of Mrs Cooper, expect to see a stern but supportive mother who is sometimes the chagrin to her son Simon. Just like the Brit sitcom, you will notice that there seems to be a fascination with the “Milfs” on the show for they do possess their brand of desirability. Together with her peer Christine Scott Bennett who plays Polly McKenzie, they’ll be talked about fervently I’m sure. It’ll be interesting to see SUSAN’s story arc as Mrs Cooper throughout the coming season.
If there’s one facet that tips the scale when it comes to admiring SUSAN, it has to be her persuasively sweet smile. Don’t chide us if I have a thing for mature beauties onscreen for their appeal is timeless as a majority of viewers will agree in unison. Why not drop by the SUSAN GALLAGHER OFFICIAL SITE where you’ll get to view clips of her appearances on television as well as several indie features. Besides dazzling in Season 2 of “Breakout Kings” and “Treme”, she can be seen in an array of indie dramas. More than ever, there’s plenty to be passionate about when it comes to extolling the talents of Miss SUSAN GALLAGHER.
The focus on exciting prospects continues with the beautiful JENNI HALINA who is congenial as she is bewitching. Through her mutual friend and fellow actress Kandis Erickson, we became acquainted after she spotted my article on Kandis. These 2 divine ladies are also co-stars in the upcoming indie film “Love You More” which is in post production. Even if the trailer (above) is lacking JENNI’s part in the romantic drama, there’s enough to suggest her role will be one to look forward to. JENNI and me have been in constant contact despite our busy schedule and she’s been ever so kind in updating me on her career progression. Thus far JENNI has garnered rave reviews for her role as a seductive mistress in the play called “The Inventor, The Escort, The Photographer, Her Boyfriend and His Girlfriend.” It’s written by Matt Morillo, and it’s a hilarious sex comedy playing at the Lounge Theater in Hollywood.
If you head over to the JENNI HALINA OFFICIAL SITE, you’ll discover her array of talents as a model, singer and guitarist. Her stripped-down cover of Deftones “RX Queen” is music to everyone’s ears judging from the comments she’s received on Youtube. This raven-haired siren from New York currently plies her music under the name Girl in Dreamland and that gorgeous voice is as luscious as JENNI herself. It’s a pleasure to thrust a fresh face into the spotlight and JENNI HALINA might just be the Dream Girl you’ve been searching for…:)
