Sizzling Cutie: Jessica Cummings


With her soft features and noticeably likable persona, Jessica Cummings could soon be well received by viewers. Catch her in the fascinating story “Astraea” which is screening at Cinequest 2015 this week and the next. The isolation and trepidation often seen in a post-apocalyptic setting give rise to great drama and Jessica gives us a multi-faceted performance as Callie who encounters the young girl Astraea who has special powers. As survivors in a desolate world, their chance meeting starts off benevolently until complications arise when there’s a budding romance between her brother and Callie. Their place in time is no paradise but there’s certainly trouble brewing!

For those who have their interest piqued, she’s so kindly included the screening times right here:

– Friday, Feb 27 @ 6:45pm
– Sunday, Mar 1 @ 11::30am
– Tuesday, Mar 3 @ 2pm

Jessica is already at Cinequest and it’s the ideal opportunity for those who want to interact with her (how i wish i could have made it there). Although, she’s had positively kind words for my blog so her acknowledgments of praise is something to be very thankful for. Jessica has also been very active on the theat­er scene having got her big break on Broadway as well as having appearances on television and in several indie films. Jessica has the potential to be a serial charmer and we will be suitably captivated.

Canadian Vixen: Amanda Thomson


Vivacious and beautiful Amanda Thomson is the blossoming sweetheart from Canada whom many may soon be pining for in the months ahead. She is persuasively striking and veritably, this lovely brunette is headed for undivided attention. From film to television as well as music, Amanda has impressed and this budding starlet could soon be thriving in no time.

Here’s Amanda giving us a tease of her current and upcoming projects:

I started off 2014 by shooting a short film, then a Lifetime LMN movie titled “The Hazing Secret” (Showcase in Canada) which was trending on twitter in the US and I just finished filming a series titled “Ascension” for Syfy (CBC in Canada) which is to air November 24. Prior to that, I have guest starred on Disney series such as “My Babysitter’s A Vampire”, starred in a show titled “Totally Amp’d” for YTV (Canada) and shot a Hallmark Channel movie titled “A Christmas Song” as well as several short films which have won awards in various film festivals.

As a vocalist I also have performed on theme songs for television series, including the spin-off of “Say Yes to the Dress” titled “Keasha’s Perfect Dress”. As a singer/songwriter I also have an ad campaign throughout Europe and Asia for a company called Premium Cali, who promote my music through Cali Burger restaurants worldwide. I’m currently writing & recording my upcoming EP and my last single Wildfire is on youtube.

First off, Amanda has all the makings of a Sci-Fi Goddess and could soon become a desirable presence on “Ascension” which so many have earmarked as “Mad Men In Space”. Can’t wait to see how her character Lorelei Wright evolve and influence proceedings in this series that yet again questions human nature. She is going to star as a woman of the 60s so expect her to be fashionable to the tee. Considering how her songs are also played at Cali Burger globally, Amanda is set to be a yummy, multi-faceted talent on the rise!
