Mandy Moody is a charming sweetheart whom we would very much like to keep an affectionate eye on. At this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, catch her in “Birthday” as the wife of a triple amputee Marine soldier grappling with the enormity of her family crisis. The scars of war can sometimes be more than skin deep as depicted in this thought-provoking short film and Mandy’s heart-felt portrayal will no doubt resonate with audiences. A gorgeous leading lady to evoke an emotional perspective from a military wife in this beautifully written project. It’s fitting that this Hawaiian-born actress has a local name called Lokelani which means Heavenly Rose. Mandy has also modeled extensively and she’s been in national commercials for established brands such as Shiseido and McDonalds. As one can see in the photos (above), she has such a photogenic radiance.
Having been raised on the Island of Oahu, it’s no surprise that Mandy has guest-starred on “Hawaii Five-0” which is going strong in its fifth season. Her scenes are with Officer Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park), the only female member of Five-0. It will be very interesting to see how her career progresses in 2015 and as a certified fan of fresh faces in this industry, I’m already looking ahead for more.
