Actress Spotlight: Sizzling Cutie Cherie Jimenez


Absolute ardor is in store for the endearingly foxy Cherie Jimenez as she weaves her magic touch on TV once more. She’s guest-starring in the episode “Innocent Might Be a Bit of a Stretch” from the Cinemax hit show “Banshee” as Jill Francis, a woman who is accosted by a hooded figure in last week’s instalment “Job”. We do learn of her fate and the serial killer/killers responsible that are being hunted by Agent Veronica Dawson (Eliza Dushku) are not just your average perpetrators. There’s going to be blood and Cherie shines in the harrowing scenes of her character’s abduction. April might be the month of film festival fever but it’s also the advent of passion-worthy women of television such as the alluring Cherie. Sometimes I wish there were more than 24 hours in a day to give a shout out to the stirringly wonderful ladies of entertainment.


Cherie has also worked opposite some of the hottest women we know such as Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars) and Connie Britton (Nashville). Horror fans would have seen her in “Blood Shed”, trumping up the scare factor as Jezebel, a spirit of vengeance that prowls for victims at a storage facility while searching for her lost baby. Indeed, Cherie has the blend of sultriness and demureness, ideal for long term adulation.

LA Shorts Fest 2013 Spotlight: Euro Vixen Elena Talan

 alt=  alt=

The spotlight certainly falls on Russian temptress ELENA TALAN who is on course to make quite the impression in LA. She is the writer, producer and actress of “Paper”, the short film of a Russian immigrant hoping for the American Dream. This is a story close to her heart having been a transplant from Russia herself and speaks of experiences gathered of people far from home trying to make ends meet in the US. Not shying away from making its point that the promise of a better life in America can often come up empty, ELENA stars as Mashka who after escaping a massage parlor faces the great unknown. Without a passport nor money, she’s almost lost until she has to make a decision on doing anything to get her documents. Almost angelic at times ELENA does ever so well to make Mashka a sympathetic character and we can relate with the grim situation she’s in. You have to watch the LA Shorts Fest Filmmaker Interview with Elena (above) as she talks about her experience working on “Paper”.

It’s also interesting to note she’s added some comic flavor alongside pre-MTV, raunchily twerking Miley Cyrus in an episode of “Hannah Montana”! Of note, ELENA has even played Mia Farrow in a biopic about Roman Polanski’s life called “Polanksi Unauthorized”. Proving she’s no one-genre actress, there’s still plenty more to come from this most fetching of faces. I came across an interview who praised her a woman with integrity and intelligence to match her beauty and as you can see this rings true. Elena is of course most well known for her starring role as the sexy, exotic Sasha, in Cinemax’s steamy “Sin City Diaries” and we can’t wait for the second coming of the delectable Miss ELENA TALAN.
