Actress Spotlight: Brittany Belt


Our love for dazzling faces such as the engagingly sweet Brittany Belt grows unabated this week. She can be seen in the ensemble film “Mother’s Day” as Beth Anne who might just be hanging with the character Bradley played by Jason Sudeikis. He’s a widower with two kids who might just have a thing for Jennifer Aniston’s divorcee mum of two. You could say he’s a thorn among the roses with the very lovely Brittany in the cast with Shay Mitchell, Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts, Sarah Chalke, Britt Robertson and Jennifer of course. This will be a special and poignant film for me as my mum is still critically ill after her bout with pneumonia so I’m praying for her recovery so any motherly-themed is a must follow for me. Plus the fact that Brittany’s in it is so pleasing as memories of her unparalleled geniality when I first started connecting with her came flooding back. It’s auspicious that she mesmerised in her elegant navy blue dress at a recent red carpet premier of “Mother’s Day”.


Reminiscing the words imparted to me by Brittany herself that ‘BRUNETTES HAVE MORE FUN!’ and noticing her most radiant of smiles, it does ring true that raven-haired beauties own a special place in our hearts. Whilst Brittany has delighted us on the small screen in shows such as “Switched At Birth”, “Parenthood” and Castle, her comely arrival in high profile films promises to thrust her into the spotlight.

Indie Darling: Catherine Cobb Ryan


Sultry and sweet Catherine Ryan Cobb has an endearing glow about her that’s a delight onscreen. She stars in the chilling horror flick “In The Dark” which this week will be premiering at the Beaufort International Film Festival and many more prestigious festivals ahead. With hugely positive buzz about the terror quotient that will be memorable for audiences, catch Catherine in an authentic, riveting performance as resident nurse Joan Mills. Comparisons to “The Exorcist” may emerge however Director David Spaltro has crafted an intelligent film led by a strong cast and has all the makings of a cult hit. Great to see Catherine alongside Grace Folsom who plays her spiritually troubled daughter Bethany Mills who experiences a frightening possession. Just like Grace who has been featured on this blog, the unparalleled geniality of Catherine is one of her many gracious traits and why we should all exalt the women of indie cinema.

Here’s Catherine giving us an insight into her collection of projects including the must-see “In The Dark”:

In “Outliving Emily, the writer director, Eric Weber, cast different actors play the same role during taking a look at the tumultuous marriage of Tim and Emily Hanratty over half a century. I play Miranda in the 5th segment, the mother of the groom who marries their daughter. The highlight for me was playing opposite Andre Braugher and Phylicia Rashad. I spent most of the day dancing and laughing with Andre during the wedding party.

I also have the award winning and critically acclaimed horror/thriller, “…In The Dark”, written and directed by David Spaltro, playing in festivals all over the world. I play one of the four women leads, Joan, the mother of Bethany, who is struggling after a near death accident. We have been very well received and the film is getting rave reviews. I am not a fan of this genre and am a big scaredy cat but managed to overcome my fear to work on this. It’s not a slasher horror but even the psychological tension was unnerving. I got to work with some fabulous actors and a wonderful director.

Adept at both drama and comedy, Catherine has been compared in some circles to Joan Collins, she’s able to essay women of regal distinction as well as those more down to earth. Being enchanting in reel and real life also ensures she’s a charismatic actress we would love to know more about.
