Rising Starlet: Emily Killian

 alt=  alt=

Yet again the women of the indie world come to captivate us and the radiant Emily Killian should be one to covet in the month of July. Expected to be released on the 24th, “The Chosen” is an upcoming horror film that will see Emily in a pivotal role. This is not just a straight-forward story about evil spirits inhabiting hapless humans but a trip into the psyche of those touched by such a terrifying event.

Here’s Emily giving us a look at the juicy details as well as some of her future projects:

I play Megan, the girlfriend of our leading man, Cameron, played by YouTube star, Kian Lawley. The story is about the demon possession of a little girl and the choice her uncle and mom are left to handle when they learn the only way to save her is to take the lives of their own family members. It’s a really cool psychological look into how far we’ll go for the ones we love. My story line is a cool twist that complicates Cameron’s decisions. I can’t tell you too much because my role in the movie is pretty much to provide plot twists so… No spoilers!
The most interesting thing about being a part of this film so far has been the aftermath of playing the love interest of someone with such a huge and devoted (dare I say obsessive) fan base. I had never heard of Kian before the chemistry reads but I quickly learned that he has literally MILLIONS of extremely loyal young girls in his following and as someone like me whose social media experience was pretty much limited to Facebook, I have been getting a peek into quote a different world! For the most part his fans have been extremely kind and supportive of me but I have gotten a handful of (hopefully empty) death threats once the PR team released a screen grab of Kian and me kissing!

My Wet Hot America Summer role was very small but very fun to shoot. I played the date of one of the principal characters. He was using me to make Kristen Wiig’s character so we had a really fun scene together! I just finished shooting a web series called Behind the Blinds. It will come out in a few months and we can chat about that soon!

Following on from her recent stint on the TV series “Scorpion”, this cutie is steadily gaining our avid attention. Emily once remarked in an interview that ‘One of the ways you’ll find success in the industry is by being nice and friendly’ and that axiom has been proven spot on. Her lovable features are worthy of devotion and she’s on track to be a fresh face to be adored.

Ravishing Redhead: Samantha Buck

Fetchingly engaging as a storyteller both in front and behind the camera, SAMANTHA BUCK is on the cusp of dazzling the world. At we speak, she’s gaining buzz as the director of the moving documentary “Best Kept Secret” which delves into the plight of underprivileged young children with autism. She’s already touching lives with this film that reveals a painful reality and an insight into a debilitating condition that needs our vocal support. Kudos to SAMANTHA for making us aware of the emotional core of autism.

You can catch her in the Lionsgate horror comedy “Hellbenders” as Penelope, the wife of a blasphemous minister who is not your typical exorcist. Dragging demons back to hell comes with all its vices including getting drunk, spewing vulgarities and fornicating. “Hellbenders” spins the devil posession tales that’s come before into one dirty, insanely sinful take on exorcism. In keeping with the bleak tone of the film, kudos to SAMANTHA for playing it real with minimal makeup as the wife who feels she’s been taken for granted by a supposedly saint of a husband. SAMANTHA is well known as Det. G. Lynn Bishop in Law & Order: Criminal Intent starring opposite Vincent D’ Onofrio. She’s also been active on television with roles in “Blue Bloods”, “Golden Boy” and “Sex and the City”. Just found out that SAMANTHA and me have something in common. We both used to work for MTV…:) It’s a matter of time before her work reaches an even wider audience and she’s recognized for her pure talents.
