Seeing how I am still obsessed with “Roswell” the TV Series thanks to the trio of hotties Shiri Appleby, Katherine Heigl and Majandra Delfino, I get excited whenever a feature on aliens decide to come my way. “Super 8” might have the blockbuster credentials but I’ve heard it lacks the funny moments J J Abrams used to peddle; has the dude gone way too serious?? What really piques my interest is the indie “Night Of The Alien” screening at Dances With Films this week and the actress that will appeal to any Extraterrestrial-Seeking enthusiast. As Boltron, the benevolent alien with a thing for “American Idol” or should i say “The Jennifer Lopez Show”, TABETHA WALLACE is strikingly out of this world and so comfortable in the skin of the drum-playing, stoner E.T. on a mission to save Earth. Utilizing an amusingly deadpan persona throughout, it’s one priceless performance from this laudable newcomer. A standout in this zany adventure, TABETHA has such groovy appeal, it’s easy to be beguiled hook, line and sinker. On the strength of its excellent cast and the charming wittiness of its alien-themed road movie slant, viewers are guaranteed a really good time.
It is their individuality that continually impresses us and TABETHA rightly belongs on the ever growing list of uniquely enthralling indie actresses. Film Festivals are definitely the avenue to get in touch with them and it’s great to see a host of talented women setting the standards in the entertainment industry. Show your support for the promising TABETHA and I can’t wait for her next role that hopefully has a wacky zing to it!!
