Newcomer Lilly Lawrence has the sassy features and delectable qualities to take a shine to and she’s about to shake your world. She’s starring in the thought-provoking film “Lion” which sheds light into how the ego can get in the way of someone you love and this romantic dramedy is screening this week at The Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival Just like how a lion often has its pride, this is about a guy who is struggling in life yet happens to fall head over heels with a woman who happens to be a bigger earner than him. Lilly plays Chessa, the love interest in question who complicates his life but is there a happy ending for the lovebirds? “Lion” definitely doesn’t shy away from the uneasiness of the male psyche when it’s about feelings of inadequacy. Even the recent episode of “Agent Carter” brought forth the impotency of men seeing how Agent Carter kicked the asses of her male colleagues! As Chessa, Lilly’s character gets to stand up to her envious paramour and not bow down to his whims. Tension makes for the best drama and I’m sure many can’t wait to see the sparks flying in more ways than one between the two of them.

The vivacious Lilly is expected to be at the premiere of “Lion” at HRIFF 2015 in Los Angeles. To male viewers, watch it with an open mind and while some of us guys may have been guilty of chauvinism in our lives even subliminally, leave the bruised egos behind and enjoy the film for its resonating parable. Kudos to the women who are part of the indie movement which are getting to the core of great storytelling and we may yet get to see Lilly as a dazzler yet again in the coming months.

Rachel Noll is on the cusp of becoming a much sought after actress and is already giving us a glimpse of her relatably mesmerizing potential. In addition to being a delectable face onscreen, she’s also a writer and producer with the most notable thing to date being her feature film “Don’t Pass My By”. It’s a vignette style drama about regret, love and second chances which she wrote, produced, and played a starring role. It has already been released on Video on demand and DVD worldwide. Her character is Hannah Walters, a young woman who finds out she has terminal cancer, and then meets the love of her life. Funny how love sometimes work that way in not always having that perfect timing. Rachel depicts with soulfulness in the being of this woman who is grappling with matters of the heart and her deteriorating health. In fact all the female characters are beautifully written and one can almost fathom there’s going to be tear-inducing moments in reference to the film’s melancholic tone. “Don’t Pass My By” is a must-see especially since February is the month of love and we’re less than two weeks away from Valentine’s Day…:)

She also has 2 other features in development, one called “Daisy Delivered”, a quirky romantic dramedy whereby she co-wrote the script and will be playing Daisy, the title character. She’s also working on a film called “Follow the River”, this time round an intimate, character driven western. She will be the lead female role, Annie Denzil and she doubled up as a scriptwriter in this project. Aside from those features, Rachel just completed three short films that will be premiering shortly and has supporting roles in the films “Me Without You” and “The Jesuit”, both currently in post production. In the action thriller “The Jesuit” which tells of a man’s quest for revenge, Rachel joins an amazing cast which includes Tim Roth, Tommy Flanagan, Shannyn Sossamon and Paz Vega. With her eye for bringing to life stories that stir the hearts and for being emotionally invested in the roles she’s essayed, the spotlight and audience approval is quickly heading in Rachel’s direction.
