Intriguing and Captivating are sweet words to describe Southern Actresses and MELISSA LOWE has both facets on a highly appealing level. Her Southern accent to me has got to be one of the loveliest on the planet as is her ravishing figure which is immensely enticing. A fitness enthusiast & model on top of her acting career, she is a certified bikini hottie and her fabulous bod deserves endless infatuation. I’ve seen the modeling portfolio of Melissa and she absolutely sizzles in every photo. Even on black and white print, she manages to be delectable so this will be the site to visit to be dazzled by more of her pics:
. In fact, at the 2012 NANBF, IFPA competition, Melissa was placed 2nd in her ever first show which is a fantastic achievement and it’s obvious Melissa has the sauciest buns on stage. She’s put in some serious effort into getting her enviable body, signifying how driven she is as an upcoming talent. Furthermore, MELISSA’s support for me is so genial which in turn merits me championing her here.
While we already know she’s strikingly gorgeous, she did play that down in her role as Mrs. Potter in the indie horror flick “Lynch Mob”. Appearing as a dowdy mother figure is telling of her capability when it comes to handling a range of characters. The juicy news is she’s slated to be the lead female in Jason Winn’s (of The Fat Boy Chronicles) new film Boxes. Does sound like she’s on her way to becoming a star! My dad was stationed in Atlanta, Georgia when he was in the Air Force back in the day and I’m crossing my fingers that I could meet up with MELISSA one day…:)
Here’s another site great site to read up on what’s been happening in Melissa’s World:
The obvious charms of vivacious GINA TRAVIS does mean she’s one of the most alluring faces on the planet. An award winner for Best Supporting Actress in the romantic comedy “On The Market” back in 2011, GINA has the credentials to be eye-catching in anything she does. Unabashedly this blog was created with blondes as my inspiration and it’s fitting someone as stunning as GINA is sizzling it up. Additionally mature actresses have been a captivating delight thanks to actresses such as Mädchen Amick and Connie Britton. Let’s just say I don’t want to miss the boat and I’m making it a point by featuring more such talents from now on. The Southern geniality is effusive from GINA and it’s an incredibly attractive trait in my book. There’s a song by the amazing alt-rock band Incubus entitled “Southern Girl” has the memorable riff ‘You’re an exception to the rule, You’re a bonafide rarity’ and certainly applies to the gorgeous Miss GINA TRAVIS…:)
All the more reason to visit the GINA TRAVIS OFFICIAL SITE. She’s appearing in the upcoming feature “Pauline in a Beautiful World” and there’s high hopes it it will get noticed at the Tribeca Film Festival 2013. This will be a great opportunity to embrace the warm and dazzling grace that GINA exudes. Her hospitable, winning smile also justifies why everyone should start an affectionate movement for her. Just like the soap drama “Deceit & Desire” which she dazzled in, GINA has got the desirable factor to wow us.

Horror Hound Weekend starts on Friday, 11th November and it’s a huge pleasure to spotlight Chelsey Garner, starlet from the highly rated “Down The Road”. Since she was the first of the 3 hot actresses from this retro looking horror flick to befriend me as her fan on Facebook, I’m having her grace the Actress Obsession Blog at the outset. Or maybe it’s her comely pair of green eyes that would be bewitching on the screen irregardless of the period she’s in character. After all, she’s a Southern belle and her hospitable personality would have everyone grow fond of her in no time at all. In “Down The Road”, she’s Michele, one of several fun-seeking college students who are escaping the clutches of their problematic lives only to end up as sacrificial lambs of a vindictive killer. The throwback to the slashers of ’80s and ’90s boomed ever since Ti West’s House Of The Devil caused a stir with its slow burning suspense. “Down The Road” replicates the dated shlock but this time purists will not wait long to be thrilled by the pace and violence. Chelsey’s pained expression near the end of the trailer (above) surely spurs you on to catch the film and find out what fate may befall her.
In fact, she could well be following in the footsteps of actresses such as Scout Taylor-Compton and Danielle Harris who have ascended the throne of perennial slasher sweethearts. The duo I just mentioned were in smaller, independent films (Scout was in “Wicked Things” & Danielle was in “Urban Legend”) before making it big so in the same vein, Chelsey is more than capable of becoming prominent. Having recently read that her aim is to inspire audiences by building a rapport with them, her elegant yet relatable attributes should hold her in good stead. Becoming one of the rallying voices for women in independent cinema has been a mission of mine from the very start and the fascinating Chelsey Garner makes it all worthwhile.
Tara Perry in “The Fresh Beat Band”
Our children and youth do indeed play a big part in entertainment as discovery shows such as “Hi-5″ and Kid-Lite fare such as “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” continue to amass a huge global following. Enter the Nick Jr musical TV Show “The Fresh Beat Band” that has taken the world by storm by incorporating music as part of the solution in solving problems….a mighty fascinating premise indeed! Seeing how popular “The Fresh Beat Band” is and the buzz directed at its cast including Tara Perry who plays Marina (previously essayed by Shayna Rose), I’m jumping on the bandwagon. Since taking over the colorful drum set, glowing reviews have flowed in for Tara as she takes over the reins of the quirky, affable red-haired drummer. Tara herself is so lovable it’s infectious…:)
Mary-Louise Parker in “Weeds”
Many men will agree that if they opt for a partner, the enigmatic Mary Louise-Parker would certainly be on the top of the list if not Number 1. I came across her interview on The Late Late Show With Craige Ferguson where she wholeheartedly professed her love for men and that to me affirms why she’s so coveted by people everywhere. The heart, the soul and the Sexy, Sassy Driving Force behind the popular “Weeds” is back in Season 7 and Mary promises to Bring It On! At 45, she’s as strikingly gorgeous as ever with the cougar-licious streak that till now stirs our loins…:) One of my generation’s heroines, she’s left an indelible mark as the marijuana dealing Nancy Botwin which by now should be inducted into Pop Culture. Mark the date June 27th as the High Priestess of Pot Returns!
Desiree Hall in “Teen Wolf”
If you must know, Holland Roden is not just the only Ravishing Redhead on Beacon Hills High School in MTV’s Teen Wolf. Near the end of episode 4 “Magic Bullet”, we get a quick glance at alluring Desiree Hall as Jennifer, a school nurse who is as mysterious as she is special. While that might be a blink and you’ll miss it scene, Desiree is slated to feature in 3 more upcoming episodes. It’s going to be a busy time ahead for this multi-faceted sweetheart as she’s producing/directing her first film as well as being the headliner in the spine-tingling flick “Donner Pass“. An established talent on television and the indie scene, Desiree now has eyes on becoming a creative doyenne. With her captivating looks and her gift to hold the interest of viewers, she’s certainly climbing the ladder of success.
Haviland Stillwell in “CSI:NY”
Watching Southern temptress Haviland Stillwell transformed herself into the Geisha Artist Akiko Haruka in “CSI: NY” was so memorable. Being Asia myself, I approve of the East Meets West persona, engagingly portrayed by Miss Haviland. A mover and shaker in the industry, you will also find she’s one of the friendliest actresses around who never fails to respond when a fan has a query or two. Besides a sizzling appearance in hot pink no less for the new series “Single Ladies”, she’s about to thrill the online world with the new webseries “Unicorn Plan-It” premiering August 1st, produced and written by her. The more you see Haviland, the more you know she has the X-factor to go far in the business. In addition to her opulent beauty, she has that saucily fun nature that’s becoming highly addictive.
IRIS BAHR in “Svetlana”
Giving Borat a run for his money, Iris Bahr has fashioned her alter ego, The Russian Madam Svetlana into an endearingly recognizable character. Birthing the ‘St Petersburg House of Discreet Pleasure’ and terms such as ‘Whorehome’, Iris has indeed touched our pleasure zone…the funny bone that is…:) Living up to her reputation as a comedienne built upon stints on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “The Kind Of Queens”, she’s now the bona fide star of her very own show “Svetlana”. From its humble beginnings on the web, Season 2 is now a fully-fledged TV Series, sheer proof of its marketability. Iris does dabble in horror (remember her as the director who gets dismembered by cultists in “The Last Exorcism”), it is her strength in making us laugh that positions her as being so sought after.
A Big Shout Out to REBECCA McFARLAND for giving me the heads up on her guest appearance on the cheeky new series “Franklin and Bash”. Legal Eagles Brecking Meyer (Franklin) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Bash) pile on the tomfoolery with women exposing their boobs in court and lawyers kissing clients on the stand being their brazen route to upholding justice…hehe. In “Jennifer of Troy” REBECCA portrays a magazine publisher whose assistant claims she was fired for being too hot….There lies the twist as the assistant is incredibly a Plain Jane!! In fact, I’m more inclined to praise REBECCA’s sultriness in this episode…;) Known for instilling a uniqueness in all of her roles, she’s of course famed for being Bartender Leanne on “Two and A Half Men”. Charlie Sheen wouldn’t be the only one hitting on her on that show or off it that’s for sure…:) The natural allure that she projects will steer adoring eyes towards her in no time. With Rebecca and her fellow hotties making such a notable impact this June all the way till September, this could end up being right up there as Best Summer for actress watching..:)
This bewitching blonde has stolen our hearts on more than one occasion with impressive turns in “Human Target” and “Saving Grace”. Enjoyed seeing her as a Cheerleading Coach admonishing pretty Minka Kelly on my fav show “Friday Night Lights…WOW! She’s a whiz with all the different accents especially them Texan and Southern ones. Oh my, she does belong to the elegant group of women hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana. If you are enthused with her, I suggest a visit to the REBECCA MCFARLAND OFFICIAL SITE. There’s a Über-cool ethereal attractiveness about REBECCA complimented wonderfully by her ravishing blue eyes and does her hair always look immaculately coiffed or what…:) She has a genuine ability to habit engaging characters with the zestiest of charms.
We’ve seen Courtney Cox play up the predatory older woman with a thing for young meat in “Cougar Town” but if you want a more realistic version of mummy desire, catch KAREN BRAMEN in “Northside Cougars”, an entry for last year’s 48hr film festival. This year alone Helen Mirren was quite the sensual figure as a Brothel Madam sleeping with a man half her age in “Love Ranch” and Sigourney Weaver showed she still has lots of sex appeal when she rode her younger lover on the bed in “Cedar Rapids”. It’s great to see older women/younger men pairings on film since I wasn’t around when “The Graduate” took the world by storm….don’t get me started on the MILF Revolution sparked by “American Pie”…hehe. And I recently caught an episode of “Bones” where they were flaunting the Cougar Cruise…interesting stuff!! I myself am partial to mature actresses and KAREN has that sexy ebullience that male fans of any adult-going age will find attractive….Hence this tribute that’s also a belated birthday present for the affable and lovely KAREN…she celebrated hers only two days ago…:) Her assured performance in “Northside Cougars” has a surprising dark twist to it, having them young men all tied up and at the mercy of her Main Cougar character. However, Karen reserved her best for “Journey To Promethea” as a blind soothsayer even outshining Billy Zane, his hilariously campy take as a medieval king.
While viewers were somewhat critical of sword and sandals fantasy “Journey To Promethea”, KAREN’s fortune teller role was described as one of the film’s saving grace according to an online reviewer. She also has a supporting role in “Terror On The Bayou” and you can clearly make out that it’s her providing narration in the trailer. Besides the Aussie accent, I find that Southern accents so fascinating and New Orleans, Louisiana where Karen hails from is a dream destination of mine….Hope I get to meet the fabulous Karen someday. Let’s shower some love on KAREN BRAMEN and the classy women of Independent Cinema.
Very much an outstanding character actress, BETH GRANT has embodied the most eccentric roles ever seen, etching into history some of the most indelible onscreen moments. From her stint on cult hit “Sordid Lives” as the maladjusted Sissy Hickey to starring alongside ‘The Dude’ Jeff Bridges in “Crazy Heart”, what you will get from her is top drawer stuff! Her gracing the Newport Beach Film Fest 2011 is a real boon as she headlines the film “Valley Of The Sun” and while the title sounds chaste, BETH is playing the mother of a Porn Star who suffers a mental breakdown! Having those porn elements wavered her own opinions of the movie’s premise but being a risk-taker, BETH dived straight into it which we all know has paid off so handsomely for her before. Think as recently as “Herpes Boy” where’s she’s all Zen as a New Age mother whose son has a humongous birthmark problem…..that comedy had multiple sold-out screenings thanks in part to her zany interpretation. If you want to see BETH at the quirky best, then the offbeat drama “Sedona” where she plays a kooky fortune teller will enthrall once again, adding to the long line of breathtaking Beth Grant performances. Helen Mirren watch your back…Here’s one unconventionally foxy lady that could possibly steal your thunder! Many would remember she played the very sexy mom of Sandra’s Bullock cameraman obsessed daughter in “All About Steve”. Personally I have a thing for her Southern accent which has such a sweet zing to it…:)
The spectacle of believable diversity and awesome coolness can be seen in her phenomenal artistic endeavors; “Donnie Darko”, “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Dear Lemon Lima” are some of the 100+ Features that includes a fine collection of TV Roles where She once said “We’re trying to change the world. Otherwise, why be an artist? You want to shake people up and make ’em think! reminding us that the enthusiastic verve she has for setting hearts aflutter is undying. Closing my Newport Beach Film Fest Hottie Special with this tribute to her, it is hoped that Screen Legend will become synonymous with the name BETH GRANT.
