It’s truly one of the great pleasures in life when introducing a vivacious and foxy talent such as Chloe Farnworth who is destined for eminence. Possessing a similar sex appeal reminiscent of Jeri Ryan and Kylie Minogue, Chloe is herself a tempting hottie with ethereal fair skin. In addition to being gorgeous, the passion she has for her craft is boundless. Directors have praised her energy every time she’s on set and it’s that very exuberance that will have Chloe eagerly recognized by moviegoers. She did sizzle in the indie horror film “BackSlasher” as Aqua, one of the girls invited to model sexy sleepwear which also puts her on the crosshairs of a sadistic killer. Chloe is stunning onscreen and this blonde goddess should be considered essential viewing.

She so kindly updated me on her blossoming career with the news she’s been offered her first US movie. Playing the lead of Shannon Mathews a English nanny working for the Preston Family, it’s filming in Philadelphia later this year and here’s a link to the website (She’s on the home page, looking a tad scary). The hits keep on coming with her wrapping up filming in the the lead role of Ange in “The Devil’s Bargain which will be released end of this year. Then “Get Lucky” comes out in Feb followed by the release of a horror comedy called “Crying Wolf “which will go to cinemas in the UK and US! Keep up with the latest updates by visiting the CHLOE FARNWORTH OFFICIAL SITE and since she’s moving over to LA in a few months time, her star is destined to shine brightly. Actresses with Chloe in their first name seems to be synonymous with success (e.g Chloe Grace Moretz and Chloe Sevigny) so look out Miss Chloe Farnworth to emulate their achievements and develop into one desired by devotees the world over.
