Rising Starlet: Sarah de Possesse


We’re fondly drawn to the amiable personalities of young, upcoming actresses and Australian cutie Sarah de Possesse is set to be a sensation this week on the web. She’s the leading lady of the acclaimed LGBT series “Starting From Now” which has its Season 5 World Premiere on Monday 21st March. Sarah recently won Best Supporting Actress at the 2015 NYC Web Fest for her role as the dewy-eyed Steph who has quite the complicated love life.

Here’s Sarah touching on her role as Steph:

One of the things that drew me to Starting From Now initially was how well it’s written. Julie’s characters are wonderfully complex, which makes it a great script to work with. Steph is initially quite naive and a little lost; she makes a lot of questionable decisions in her misguided efforts to follow her heart, and in the process she manages to hurt the people closest to her. I don’t necessarily agree with the choices she makes, but I believe that she is a good person, with the best of intentions. I like her ultimately because there’s nothing false or pretentious at her core.

Sarah’s endearingly virginal features is sure to be viewed with devotion in much the same way many are addicted to “Starting From Now”. There’s affecting home truths that hit all the right notes with its setting in Sydney a palpable reflection of the city’s LGBT scene. This strikingly layered web series is a success thanks to the esteemed creator Julie Kalceff as well as the polished, edgy portrayals of leading ladies Sarah de Possesse, Rosie Lourde, Lauren Orrell and Bianca Bradey. It’s a blessing to be able to put these amazing women on the pedestal of admiration and avid buzz is likely to be gathering pace for the talented Sarah.

Actress Spotlight: Kelly Walker


Australian sweethearts of the screen are always on our minds and the comely Kelly Walker will catch our eye this week. She’s the leading lady of “1,800 Days”, a story of the effects of incarceration on couples. Kelly plays Ava, a newlywed whose world comes crashing down when her husband is sentenced to prison for 5 years. This Queensland-born (QLD being one of my favourite places in the world) entertainer is on course to tug at our heartstrings as the long-suffering wife and she’ll thread the emotional spectrum with an unerring poise. This is a feature she wrote/produced and starred in which is premiering at HollyShorts Film Festival this week at the Iconic Chinese Theater in Hollywood so she’s more than genuinely invested.

Kelly was one of the first actresses I blogged about and her geniality has always been a captivating part of her makeup on top of her radiance. She’s also an adore-worthy comedienne and notably guest-starred on the hit series “Last Man Standing” which of course has Amanda Fuller who is always a fav on this blog. Kelly is the endearing vision who if not for my work commitments, I would be flying over to LA in support of her in a heartbeat. Kelly Walker is a future star in the making and she has the wholesome appeal that global audiences will love.
