We say yes to Greek Goddesses and they don’t come more tempting than the curvaceous Angie Papanikolas. She’s playing Lieutenant Lopez, a sultry kick-ass heroine alongside Danny Trejo in the actioner “Cyborg X” who together make up a band of survivalists fighting an army of machines. Female action starlets are so well in demand and Angie represents the tenaciousness in her character Lt. Lopez with enterprising vim.

Angie has so graciously provided some juicy info about her role in “Cyborg X” and several of her other projects:

I have the honour to play the tough, kick-butt character Lt Lopez in “Cyborg X”. She strives to be the toughest soldier she can be. She is a fighter, survivor and protector. Lopez is an awesome strong female character I am proud and honored to get to play. I trained my butt off to get there mentally and physically. I had about 3 weeks before we shot and I was able to get to doing pull-ups, which I do in the film. Those are real! I have been able to do 60 push-ups in a min in the past, but never pull-ups until now!

When I met one of the lovely producer’s of the film at Comic Con in SLC, Utah and I asked her if they were still casting the film and that I would love to audition, she immediately said to me, “Lopez?!” I sent in my audition video a few days later and the rest is history. It was pretty meant to be. I felt like the role was written for me.

My projects include a cameo in the WW2 film War Pigs starring Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and Luke Goss. I get to play the temptress at a pivotal point in the film. I also model for my sister’s jewelry line, http://www.standfirmbeauty.etsy.com instagram @standfirmbeauty and I also do other catalogue, beauty, fitness and swimsuit modeling. My instagram is @angelstudio7

I am a Greek-American Actress from SLC, Utah. I have a large, fun greek family and we are very much involved in each other’s lives and very supporting and loving. My mom was an actress growing up. She had a scholarship for musical theater and played some major roles. My Yiyia Irene (Yiyia means Grandma in Greek) wanted to be an actress and wrote Hollywood. They sent her a letter back saying she was absolutely beautiful but too tall for the leading men at that time. She was 5’10. I feel like acting is just in my blood and I’m so thankful and blessed to doing what I love and to have the doors open for me. I am so thankful to be given these opportunities and look forward to doing more this year, and even getting involved in producing some really great stuff down the road.

Cannes Film Festival 2015 Spotlight: Sizzling Cutie Lucinda Rogers

Expect the vivacious Lucinda Rogers to be one of the riveting faces during Cannes with her gracefulness worthy of admiration. What better than to laud the talents who are already at Cannes and Lucinda will be promoting her short film “Laura Point” which has been accepted in the Short Film Corner. Lucinda is a mesmerizing presence as she takes us into the sombre world of Laura, a woman grappling with the inevitable fate of going blind. A resonating character exploration by this up and coming captivator that should make everyone feel blessed for all the things we take for granted.

Here’s Lucinda giving us an insight into her leading role in “Laura Point” as well as her intriguing projects ahead:

My experience working on Laura Point was, at once, the most difficult and the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. When I work on a role as an actress, I cannot lie. So I have to make that character real — I have to dig very deep and find the Lucinda that IS Laura. Laura became me; I became Laura.

I was able to find the ways in which we are similar — in strength and in weakness. I love how Laura is confident, I love how she is strong — but you find out that her confidence and strength is superficial, and when it is tested, she struggles desperately, and almost gives up. I think everyone can relate to this, it’s inherently human; but I really identified with the ways Laura wanted to be strong but found she wasn’t; how she wanted to avoid being tested, but she couldn’t.

I fell in love with Laura, and she is most definitely a huge part of who Lucinda is, now! For all of her flaws and all of her mistakes, I love her and always will, and I root for her.

Daniel, the writer and director, was with me every step of the way. He supported and guided me through this gnarly but beautiful exploration. It came to a point where we didn’t even need words to communicate; we could just share a look! Since we both share an intimacy with Laura (he wrote her, I became her), we will always share that closeness.

At the same time, I am working on something wildly different right now! The fun part about being an actor is finding all of these characters within yourself, and pushing your own boundaries to see what you can become. I am right now working on a piece that I originally performed at The Lynn Redgrave Theater in NYC, with the Culture Project. We are still rehearsing and developing this piece, which is soon going to be produced by the Working Theater in NYC. It’s called “Everything’s Whispered.” I play a receptionist who, from the outside, is very superficial, bitchy, and conceited — but really she’s just taking out her own feelings of inadequacy on everyone else. It’s a comedy though, I swear!

I am constantly reading and working on things to stay inspired. New York is such a diverse, stimulating place, and there is always something thrilling to be engaged in. I am just lucky to be here and lucky to be working with such talented, driven people.

It so happens she was also in “Greek”, one of my fav TV shows where I got to know several screen sweethearts which includes the beautiful Lucinda of course! She’ll soon be pleasantly nestled in the hearts of audiences.
