CIFF 2015 Spotlight: Rising Starlet DeDe Drake

 alt=  alt=

If there’s one actress that’s going to enthrall us at film festivals, it’s going to be the alluring and magnetic DeDe Drake. DeDe does project a sultriness very much in the vein of say Parker Posey who we know went on to become the Queen of Indies. After watching the colorful and arresting trailer of her short film “The Other Side”, I’m blown away! Just like how I stumbled upon and was mesmerized by the tease of the upcoming film “Maggie” which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger/Abigail Breslin, DeDe Drake’s awesomeness in “The Other Side” is made for worldwide ardor! Being indie is all about celebrating the weird and going against convention which her character Kate finds herself entangled in. Together with Abby (Lidiya Korotko), their adventure is a roller-coaster of far-out proportions involving a botch job, meth-heads and the existential question of ‘Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road’! If I was inspired to make a movie, this is the type of ingenious film-making that would get my creative juices flowing. Of course, that said movie would deserve the captivating and luscius DeDe Drake as its leading lady. The fascinating trailer of “The Other Side” is one I can see on loop as Miss DeDe is a vision of radiance.

American television and radio host Larry King has endorsed “The Other Side” as a must-see which can only mean a wave of interest heading DeDe’s way. DeDe has also been on the hit show “Criminal Minds” in one of the most shocking episodes about home invasion which also showed she has all the makings of a delectable Scream Queen. The women of the indie genre are just magical and DeDe could well be one of its shining lights in 2015!
