Indie Princess: Rachel Sondag


It is the month of love and there’s nothing better than inculcating the passion for lovely actresses such as the radiant Rachel Sondag. She has been lauded by LA Times for being evocatively enigmatic and those are high praises that showcase her enthralling factor. While she has been regarded as one of the finest stage actresses, she’s steadily making her presence felt in the independent scene with her short film “The Bad Half” premiering at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Fest. It may be 2 days in but this is the festival to spot the names that could evolve into future gems. Rachel’s pleasing mien would definitely be an effectual trait that most would gravitate towards.

She will appear in the upcoming comedy with the deceptively saucy title “Midnight Sex Run” which is actually about two men on a race against time to save their fathers. Check out her reel (above) to see Rachel in a clip from the film being a tad persuasive. I’m impressed that she wrote, produced and starred in the poignant short film “Be Good For Rachel” as a struggling actress who is nursing a broken heart. She even roped in TV Star Anne Dudek famed for shows such as “Mad Men” and “Covert Affairs” whom she has great chemistry with. With such a gift for storytelling, Rachel is set to inspire and win us over in a big way!

Indie Princess: Mercedes Manning


Mercedes Manning has the ravishing essence to tease your every senses and she’s indeed a rousing talent. 2015 could usher in the advent of piercingly enigmatic actresses such as Mercedes who reminds me of Alycia Debnam-Carey (currently in “The 100″ and soon “The Walking Dead” spinoff Cobalt) who has worked in the horror genre. Mercedes is set to star in “Other Halves” which redefines the meaning of a Killer App as its very users will lose all self-control, an evocative premise seeing how entrenched we all are in technology. She’s also appearing in one my fav all-time actresses Dianna Agron’s new feature “Zipper” as a lawyer who challenges her superior (Patrick Wilson), the protagonist with a lust for women that leads to his downfall. With the movie premiering at this year’s Sundance, it could well be the festival that gets her some serious adoring time.

If there’s another actress that I would love to see in “Agent Carter” (currently addicted to this show), it would be Mercedes. She has the old-world grace as well as feisty nature that would be coveted in that era. One only has to see the pic of her as quite the sexy nurse (below left with fellow thesp Julia Aks whom I’ve recently featured) to be in agreement.


Sensuos, compelling women are so often put on a pedestal and the enchanting Mercedes could well be making her way into such that resplendent company.
