Fantasia International Film Festival 2015 Spotlight: Canadian Vixen Jessica Vano


When it comes to appreciating Canadian actresses, there’s no limits to how much we gush adoringly for them as we would for the enchanting Jessica Vano. With the world premiere of her film “The Demolisher” on July 27 at this year’s Fantasia International Film Fest, all eyes will be trained on Jessica as she’s starring in a major role of this intriguing vigilante thriller. She plays Marie, a young woman who is targeted by Bruce (Ryan Barrett), an ordinary repairman who takes matters into his own hands by exacting comeuppance on those he thinks are responsible for his wife’s assault. Labelled as the new-age Punisher, his vendetta against poor Marie is a by-product of his rage fuelled by injustice in this hyper-violent character-driven revenge flick. These are stories ripe with compelling statements of right and wrong as well as the darkness of addiction so expect Jessica to paint a narrative of a woman caught up in terrifying circumstance and will she be able to escape unscathed? With “The Demolisher” garnering plenty of rave reviews, there’s going to be buzz heading Jessica’s way.

When it comes to the indie genre, is there a need to be a household name when there’s a complex female character and sometimes more than 1 driving the story? Jessica would certainly be a face to hypnotize audiences and I reckon she may yet follow in the footsteps of fellow Canadian hottie Molly Dunsworth who found fame via cult indie hits “Hobo with a Shotgun” as well as “Septic Man”. Jessica is a sweetheart we could have a thing for in the months ahead and find affection beyond Canada’s shores.

Comic Con 2015 Spotlight: Rising Starlet Nicole Dambro

Indie friendly features are indeed graced by the most enchanting women and Nicole Dambro is a stunner who will mesmerize at first glance. She stars in the darkly fascinating short film “Death To Cupid” about Charlie, a man who after many failed relationships decides to take his frustrations out on Cupid himself! Could Nicole’s love interest character Samantha have something to do with his descent into romantic disillusionment? As Samantha, Nicole embodies a feisty nature which may just prove too much for our dude in the throes of passion or should we say soon to be out of love. Having premiered at the prestigious Dances With Films early this year, “Death to Cupid” will be screening at the Comic Con Film Festival 2015 come Thursday, July 9th. It’s bound to be a must-see on account that The Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus and even the Easter Bunny are popping up somewhere along the quirky plotline.

A former dancer for NBA team the Miami Heat, Nicole is irresistibly easy on the eyes and I reckon she could give Emmanuelle Chriqui a run for her money in the sexy stakes. Smoldering brunettes are definitely in and Comic Con would be the ideal extravaganza to introduce the desirable Nicole to film fans around the globe. She’s slated to take on a juicy role as a reckless con-artist in the upcoming scripted series “CON” which adds a layer of intrigue about her. The ascendancy of Nicole Dambro is likely to be seen in the near future.
