Sizzling Cutie: Lilly Lawrence


Newcomer Lilly Lawrence has the sassy features and delectable qualities to take a shine to and she’s about to shake your world. She’s starring in the thought-provoking film “Lion” which sheds light into how the ego can get in the way of someone you love and this romantic dramedy is screening this week at The Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival Just like how a lion often has its pride, this is about a guy who is struggling in life yet happens to fall head over heels with a woman who happens to be a bigger earner than him. Lilly plays Chessa, the love interest in question who complicates his life but is there a happy ending for the lovebirds? “Lion” definitely doesn’t shy away from the uneasiness of the male psyche when it’s about feelings of inadequacy. Even the recent episode of “Agent Carter” brought forth the impotency of men seeing how Agent Carter kicked the asses of her male colleagues! As Chessa, Lilly’s character gets to stand up to her envious paramour and not bow down to his whims. Tension makes for the best drama and I’m sure many can’t wait to see the sparks flying in more ways than one between the two of them.

The vivacious Lilly is expected to be at the premiere of “Lion” at HRIFF 2015 in Los Angeles. To male viewers, watch it with an open mind and while some of us guys may have been guilty of chauvinism in our lives even subliminally, leave the bruised egos behind and enjoy the film for its resonating parable. Kudos to the women who are part of the indie movement which are getting to the core of great storytelling and we may yet get to see Lilly as a dazzler yet again in the coming months.

Fresh Face Of The Week: Abbie Gayle

 alt=  alt=

Advocating newcomers in the industry has always been a calling here and with ABBIE GAYLE, here’s a sweetheart we will come to adore. I’ve taken up the mantle of featuring blossoming actresses since IMDB has somehow forgotten to continue their representation of new talents. The Fresh Face of The Week is a new category I’ve taken up in reverence to the hotties who could be heading for their breakout role. If you’re knee deep into the mythos of the TV show “Ravenswood”, spot ABBIE playing Abby Wheeler, the ex-girlfriend of the twin’s, Olivia and Luke Matheson’s father and who died 20 years ago in a high school science lab explosion. Their mom, Rochelle told them that she was trying to contact their dad to tell him that he was in danger and the police are looking for Abby because they think that she could be a suspect in his murder, but she’s actually a ghost. And she’s haunting them and making appearances so check out the snippet of ABBIE in the video (above) from Episode 4 called “The Devil Has a Face”. Let’s hope she returns in her non-corporeal form in future episodes as ABBIE’s enchanting in that ghostly visage and it would be great to see her story arc pan out.

ABBIE may still be in High School but she can certainly catch the eye. Hailing from Louisiana, her glowing skin and winning smile are why we men appreciate belles from the South. Makes you want to catch her other flick “Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators” which airs on the SyFy channel and she will be covered in blood (lots of it) in this creature feature about mutant gators on a rampage. As she hones her craft while juggling her studies, there’s ample opportunities for her to shine and become an accomplished actress.
