Australian screen sweethearts are always dear to our hearts and Felicity Price exudes a most endearing quintessence. We are after all in the throes of Summer and what better than to have the effervescent Felicity in the spotlight as she’s starring in the western “The Duel” formerly known as “By Way Of Helena”. Directed by her husband Kieran Darcy-Smith, this tale of unexplained deaths in Helena, Texas prompts a Texas Ranger to dig deeper sparking a fight between him and a cult leader. Felicity can be seen opposite heavy hitters Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson among many others. Felicity did win an AACTA Award for Best Actress in the riveting drama “Wish You Were Here” as Alice Flannery, the pregnant wife of Joel Edgerton’s Dave whose trip to Cambodia turns into a nightmare. With such a wonderful accolade under her belt, look out for Felicity to add substance to “The Duel”.
I’ve long been an admirer of Aussie actresses and it’s wonderful to see Felicity share screen time with Teresa Palmer, one of my heroines who played her younger sister Steph in “Wish You Were Here”. Felicity is impeccable in handling the highs and lows of the characters she embodies and her effortless chemistry with Joel and Teresa is laudable. She also stars in an Australian female-driven thriller called “Bad Girl” playing Michelle, a mother whose adopted daughter Amy (Sara West) fights from being displaced by her new best friend Chloe. We can’t wait for Felicity to garner fandom in the bright lights of Tinseltown as she’s enriching us with an ever growing list of credible turns.

She dazzled in the episode “Founder’s Mutation” of “The X-Files” which made a triumphant 10th Season return recently. A blossoming Aussie actress and the resurgence of “The X-Files” phenomenon make for one fascinating combo indeed. Megan’s character Molly’s has an pureness about her except she wields a dangerous power in the vein of Jean Grey and Psylocke who will be shown in full glory with the upcoming release of “X-Men: Apocalypse”. Both Mulder and Scully got a taste of her lethal gifts and we do love how Megan affectingly fleshes out the heartbreaking backstory of Molly.
Here’s Megan talking more about her memorable role on “The X-Files” and her blossoming career:
The X-Files was such an incredible experience – it was truly inspiring to work on a project with such a huge fan base, with some world renowned actors like David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. It was brilliant being able to play such a layered and complex character – an innocent girl who has been held by her father her whole life, and upon meeting her brother she is able to use her psychic powers to break free from her prison. The short film “Borealis” is set to be released soon, and I still have the feature film by the same name upcoming. And my most recent work that has aired besides “Supernatural” is the new SyFy series, “The Magicians”.
She did conjure enchantments in the new series “The Magicians” and she was a bright spark opposite Jared Padalecki as well as Jensen Ackles on “Supernatural”. Already an award-winning actress, Megan has is a promising starlet on the rise who could one day emulate her idol Cate Blanchett. Megan is spearheading a new generation of young Australian screen sirens and her accessible disposition would surely endear her to the world.
