Rising Starlet: Solly Duran

 alt=  alt=

Beguiling and talented, Latin cutie Solly Duran could be one of this year’s most watchable actress. Television roles, independent movies, commercials and stage performances, this Dominican-born beauty has done them all and she’s about to enchant us ever more. With the second season of “Orange Is The New Black” heating up Summer, it’s time to feature the hotties that are stirring our senses on the hit series! Solly appears as prisoner Araceli who together with her cellmates introduces herself in fierce fashion to poor Taylor Schilling’s Piper Chapman after she accidentally stomps on Yoda the cockroach (a prized insect as we discover). With her spider/crown tattoos, intimidating scowl and history of violence, Araceli is one jailbird not to be messed with! Don’t you love how “Orange Is The New Black” promotes the believability of the prison system by casting actresses such as Solly who un-glam themselves to create the perfect look of these group of incarcerated women.


Apparently many are already having an infatuation for Solly with some even being girl crushes as evident on her Twitter feed! She is after all a model who can channel quite the allure. Solly was also eye-catching in the horror flick “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” which had its fair share of grossed out moments. Playing Dr Camila, one of the more righteous characters on the film, she didn’t deserve the fate she was dealt with at the end. Isn’t it great to see Solly going from the sympathetic victim to the trouble incarnate with her turn in “Orange Is The New Black”. Solly’s versatility could well be her passage to more enthralling roles in the future which we’re anticipating with eagerness.
