Quirky Saucy: Lusia Strus

 alt=  alt=

It had to be a foxy blonde kicking off the Special Features I’m doing on Hotties gracing this week’s Toronto Film Festival 2011 and LUSIA STRUS is one comely lady indeed. She’s starring in the heartbreaking love story “Restless” (screens September 8th) as Rachel Cotton, one of the sisters of Annabel Cotton (Mia Wasikowska) whose romance with a boy is doomed from the start due to her tragic illness. An actress of the stage and film as well as a writer, LUSIA is proficient at depicting a host of characters with unique accents and splendidly with that husky, vampy voice of hers. Best remembered alongside Adam Sandler in “50 First Dates” as Alexa, the eccentric Russian animal handler. As you can see LUSIA is gorgeous but she incredibly invested into a more unappealing form to deliver first-rate hilarity. I urge you to watch her in the web series “Jack In A Box” (see clip above) where she combines an imposing sauciness with an amusingly wacky spirit. Wouldn’t you want to have your head buried in her boobs too…hehe.

LUSIA has appeared in many independent films (Stir of Echoes come to mind) and the TV shows such as “Early Edition”. Her fans view her as a vivid storyteller and over the years has made it an art at playing unconventional women tickling our funny bones in the process. She once stated, “I always wanted attention, and I realized I could make people laugh”…That she has achieved splendidly! Commuting regularly between New York and LA, as a consequence of her work on theatrical productions, it’s amazing that LUSIA finds time to connect with her many supporters including me. After her stint on Gus Van Sant’s “Restless”, expect the flurry of admiration to flow.
