 alt=  alt=

Swoon Worthy Aussie temptation Leilani Wyatt has both the sex appeal and elegance to keep us eternally fascinated. What better than to thrust her into the limelight as Leilani is a beguiling actress/model/producer who could be a festival favorite at this year’s Dances With Films, already into its 18th Edition. In “Direction”, she plays Heather who on a first date discovers her paramour is actually taking cues from his award-winning director who offers him love tips. Guess you’ll have watch the quirkily charming “Direction” to find out if he gets the girl! Cate Blanchett was in town recently for Singapore Fashion Week before jetting off to Cannes and it’s her earthy disposition that made a huge impression. Likewise Leilani has all the tenets of a down-to-earth personality and she has the curvaceous bod to go with her congeniality.

Just in time for Summer I say and she’s a kissable honey we’ll be following with bated breath. There’s a reason why Dances With Films is in Los Angeles, the City Of Angels especially when we have Leilani in our midst whom for those who know her will acknowledge as angelic too. Although she has appeared as quite the tough cookie in the short film “Gloriana” as the first female army ranger defending herself in court due to the accusations thrown at her for the death of her man. In fact her aim is to inject versatility into her craft having shone in “The Audition”, another short film where she traverses the touch points of frustration,love,anger and joy with such captivating elucidation. The journey of this fetching Australian actress is shaping about to be a sizzling one indeed.

Cannes Film Festival 2015 Spotlight: Rising Starlet Rebecca Calder

 alt=  alt=

Classy and strikingly gorgeous Rebecca Calder is on her way to make waves in Cannes as well as around the world. With her starring in the highly anticipated “Youth” which we know to have a very risque poster, she may find herself to be an inviting draw for audiences. Hailing from Australia but originally born in North East England, Rebecca is currently dazzling up London with her effervescent personality and appearing in productions alongside some of the best English talents, from the new to the veterans. She’s also promoting her film at Cannes, catching plenty of adoring glances everywhere she goes I’m sure.

Here’s Rebecca giving us a glimpse of her role in “Youth” as well as her upcoming features:

I play The Countess in ‘Paolo Sorrentino’s’ next feature “Youth” opposite Harvey Keitel. I think it’s out late May – it’s going to be pretty amazing. Also a British Independent feature “Love Me Do” Directed by Sundance nominee ‘Martin Stitt’ should be in festivals later this year, I play the lead role in it and it’s a film I’m very proud of. It’s a drama but essentially a crime story / love story.

My role in Altar – I play Isabella Radcliffe, the Victorian Ghost that haunts Radcliffe House. For me Isabella is so haunted by her own traumatic passing, she cannot leave this world and remains at Radcliffe House searching for peace. Her search for this solace however is far from Peaceful…she’s quite terrifying – even for me when I first watched the film! We shot in Yorkshire, England over a very cold winter – running around in a nightgown and barefoot over the Yorkshire Moors was rather traumatising for me too! It was a very special with a wonderful team. Olivia Williams is a total sweetheart and I’ve learned so much from her both professionally and personally. Antonia Clarke and Adam Thomas Wright are definitely young stars to watch – both big talents.

She may play a malevolent spirit in her movie “Altar” but away from the screen, she’s such a genuinely pleasant soul. In true Aussie warmth, Rebecca has so kindly given me the thumbs up for creating the Actress Obsession Blog, acknowledging it’s female led content. Her welcoming nature and with her admirable philosophy – “Be kind. Always be kind.”, many will find ebullient appeal to be very attractive. British viewers would have seen her on the popular series “DCI Banks” last year and with it being shown on Australia television recently, she’s heading for global adulation. She plays an ex junkie Geordie baddy and her evocative versatility in the projects she’s done is laudable. Cannes is being graced by elegance in the beauteous form of the lovely Rebecca.
