Rising Starlet: Anna Hopkins


It’s no surprise that Canadian actresses are undeniably the object of our affection especially when cutie Anna Hopkins is now illuminating our TV screens. Certain to garner affection from sci-fi fans thanks to her role as Jessica “Berlin” Rainer in “Defiance”, she could be the breakout star praised by the lips of many people. Speaking of lips, Anna is blessed with a ravishing and kissable one, likely to evoke a strong attraction. In “Defiance”, she’s got the feisty action heroine locked in, tackling a woman who has always known the military life. Not only a trained fighter, her character Berlin has experienced the horrors of war yet she keeps her vulnerability well hidden under her battle-hardened exterior. Anna is captivating in this fearless persona and let’s hope we get to experience more of her in upcoming seasons.

Anna has also graced several hit shows namely “Lost Girl”, “Arrow” and “The Flash” proving that women do rule on television. On top of her TV gigs, she’s slated to star in “After The Ball”, a fairytale where she’s the sister of fellow co-star Natalie Krill who has been featured on this blog numerous times. Now there’s a swoon worthy duo indeed! She’s also did her very first French-speaking role in “Les MaĆ®tres du Suspense” and like “After The Ball”, it’s a film which will see Anna tickle us pink. Be it as a sci-fi vixen or a comedy queen, she’s an adorable mesmerizer. It won’t be long before Anna finds herself being touted as Canada’s newest screen sweetheart and that would be an accolade richly deserved.

Rising Starlet: Ileana Huxley

It’s great to see fresh faces make their mark on television and the very attractive Ileana Huxley is poised to be in our adoring sights. She’s starring in “Shameless” which returns for its 4th season in all its gritty comedic glory with her scene being as racy as the topless ironing by Veronica Fisher (Shanola Hampton) in a previous season. By far, one of the most realistic shows ever, its emphasis on those who are often not at their glamorous with its poor next door characters is a huge selling point. Shamelessly devoted to the show would be viewers who can’t get enough and Ileana who plays the Russian escort Nika is yet another face for longing fascination. This blonde hottie has those lips as luscious as Emmy Rossum which means we’re in for a visual treat as she’s slated to appear in 3 episodes. It’s rumored she’ll add extra spice to the family dynamics that’s been a big draw.

That’s indeed the beauty of keeping tabs on upcoming talents, seeing Ileana’s performances unfold before our eyes be it on “Shameless” or on her upcoming projects. Her start in theater was the catalyst for her desire to explore the arena of Film and TV which now is a boon for admirers of actresses I’m sure. It’s only January in 2015 and already we could fathom Ileana to start making a most entrancing impression.
