When it comes to adorable features, it’s a slam dunk when admiring the many virtues of the inviting Julia Aks. At Slamdance 2015, she’s starring as Kelsey Peterson in the horror-comedy “Clinger” who cynically advises her sister Fern to break up with her boyfriend. He soon loses his head in a Guillotine accident but the only problem is his return as an extremely needy ghost setting up for some gruesome fun!

Here’s Julia dishing out a juicy behind the scenes story from Clinger:

There were days when we were soaked, and I mean SOAKED, in fake blood for hours and hours. At the end of the day, I’d try to baby-wipe myself clean, but it was usually hopeless. I ended up just driving home wearing trash bags.

If I were lucky enough to be on that set, I’ll probably be laughing along with her at her humorous predicament. With 2 screenings of “Clinger” on JAN 24 and JAN 29, that’s double the pleasure for fans to catch Julia the burgeoning indie starlet as she is attending Slamdance! In the film, she is joined by esteemed Scream Queens Debbie Rochon and Lisa Wilcox who are very much cherished themselves. Certainly with Julia making her presence felt in the indie arena, there’s bound to be fans around the world praising her name in the days ahead.

Fanboys would have seen her cosplaying as Jean Grey from X-Men in “The Meme”, a short film and as Scarlet Ruby Müller, the romantic lead in the romance novel transmedia project (the first of its kind) called The Elements Club. She’s also an accomplished Mezzo Soprano opera singer and has shone when she performs Shakespeare and in musicals. Julia has the in-born sparkle that one so often beguiles and she does it across mediums, echoing her covetable versatility. Would love to see Julia in something along the lines of Amy Adams grifter gal in a “American Hustle” type feature as she’s one who can imbue herself in retro deliciousness. Expect her to make a play for all of our hearts.

A radiant beauty, Lisa Roumain has been a charmer on film, the web and in several commercials. At this year’s Hollyshorts Film Fest, she is appearing in “The Mortality of Sara Lenson” which tells of a woman’s life changes after discovering she has a rare brain tumor. This year’s edition starting August 14th is going to be massive with top short films showcasing the work of amazing female talents who are fascinating in their own right. With a huge line up of actresses whom I’m blessed to know, it’s fitting to start featuring each starting with the gorgeous Lisa. Having already been celebrated as Best Actress Award nominee at the Indie Series Awards for her stirring work on the web series “Split”, it speaks of Lisa’s ever growing appeal to audiences. As a woman of mixed heritage (she’s Puerto Rican with Italian, Haitian and Scottish roots), there’s also the fact that she’s extremely inviting. Thanks to Lisa, here’s news on her other feature screening at Hollyshorts which has won many awards including the coveted Cine Eagle Award and Gold Remi award at Houston World Fest, and it was an Audience Award Winner at it’s Hollyshorts monthly screening. Check out the info and trailers here at http://kingeternalthefilm.com.

On “Split”, she is irresistibly watchable as Dana Lafferty, a devoted wife who discovers her husband’s infidelity and engages him in a bitter divorce. Her portrayal of a woman mired in emotional breakdown remain grounded, never going off tangent into histrionics and making this such a relatable character. Back to the world of short films, she’s also in an intriguing one entitled “Monster In A House” where she’s a woman with a different set of relationship problems with her husband. Those cracks start to manifest themselves as the titular monster which her daughter somehow encounters and must defeat to save her parents. This is yet another story of Lisa showcasing her dramatic chops and on her way to beguiling us.

The informative LISA ROUMAIN OFFICIAL SITE has plenty of updates including videos of her current as well as upcoming projects. A lot of reasons for you to discover the captivation Lisa can bring onscreen.
