English Rose: Antonia Bernath


It’s a beautiful thing when we can’t stop having crushes on British actresses and why not when they have such sweet allure as rising star Antonia Bernath. She is appearing as Susan Borman in “The Astronauts Wives Club”, the Gemini Nine wife whose composure we will soon discover is a stark contrast to her struggles to be the perfect wife. This sets up intriguingly in her interactions with the wives of the Mercury Seven and it’s going to get juicier with every moment since she’s a fixture on many of the upcoming episodes. One can sense the spotlight has somewhat shifted to the New Gals with their Spacemen hubbies and as Susan, Antonia could well turn heads starting with this week’s episode ‘Flashpoint’. Her doll-like features are reminiscent of beauties such as Emma Stone and Haley Bennett, the endearing facets of Antonia likely to generate waves of interest.

Antonia was also in one of my fav British films called “St Trinians” which had her playing the sexy Chloe, a posh schoolgirl with quite the smarts yet who is just a tad naive. She did however enraptured many hearts in the comedy with the coquettish voice that would have make lots of schoolboy blush. Antonia has even been praised by the press for stealing the show in “Kisna”, a Bollywood film where she spent time shooting in India and shone like a radiant angel. In the UK, she was in the series “Trinity” alongside Charles Dance aka Tywin Lannister, as Charlotte Arc, a new student of the prestigious Trinity College who soon discovers the covert world of secret societies. At this moment, Antonia is leaving her mesmerizing mark on television and we can’t wait to see even more.

English Rose: Laura Waddell

The angelic features of Laura Waddell is a joy to savor and this redhead has an innate attractiveness that grows on you. It’s always a joy to be casting an adoring eye on actresses from the UK and a sweetheart such as Laura has every chance of doing so. She is appearing in the buzzworthy horror film “Crimson Peak” directed by auteur Guillermo del Toro and is rubbing shoulders with Loki himself Mr Tom Hiddleston as well as IT Girl Jessica Chastain. Part atmospheric horror, part gothic romance, “Crimson Peak” creeps up on you with sinister intentions yet fascinates with its love story that stands the test of time. Famed for turning on the bitchiness as the boss of Kate Middleton before she became royalty in the TV Movie “William & Kate”, audiences will soon be intrigued by Laura and her role in “Crimson Peak” as soon as it’s released on 16th October this year. The trailer is breath-taking and filled to the brim with suspense interspersed with some serious macabre fantasy.

Her other onscreen appearances include “Saving Mr Banks” where she was onscreen alongside one of the greats Emma Thompson who is still endearingly vivacious which is a trait Laura herself has in abundance. Here is a British talent that may one day follow in the footsteps of Miss Reese Witherspoon who we all adore for her perkiness and Laura’s pixie-like demure could lead to similar adulation. She may have played a rather snide boss in “William & Kate” but one can already tell there’s a positively bubbly demeanor that’s true to life. Her move from London to Los Angeles has been fruitful thus fa and we could soon witness the meteoric rise of the lovely Laura Waddell.
