Aussie Vixen: Sally Greenland

 alt=  alt=

We’ve already seen America fall in love with Australian actresses and SALLY GREENLAND is a good prospect to continue that devotion. From the big screen to the small, it’s an OZ invasion we hope grows unabated. I’m sure most are already captivated by fellow Aussie brunette Lily Sullivan from the new TV series “Camp” and in the short film arena, SALLY is about to maximize her exposure. At the Portland Film Festival 2013, she’s appearing in the role of ‘The Prostitute’ in the offbeat short film “The Butcher’s Dozen”. It’s already premiered at this year’s Festival de Cannes court metrage and expect this fable about the cards dealt to some people in life (however harsh they may be) making the festival rounds for some time. SALLY is certainly a charismatic beauty and her reel (above) exhibits the knack she has in dramas.

Pay a visit to the SALLY GREENLAND OFFICIAL SITE to find out more about her. I’ve read on a blog she could bring a character into life in 5 minutes which says a lot about her ability. She has also scored a major role in a Spanish film ‘Encontrados en NYC’! Who knows the next time we talk about SALLY, she may have established herself and won over fans the world over.

HollyShorts Film Fest 2013 Spotlight: Rising Starlet Alison Trumbull

 alt=  alt=

Multi-talented performers are to be revered and ALISON TRUMBULL exudes a sweetness that invitingly engages the audience. She is the writer, producer and actress of the quirky short “Goodbye Simon” which is screening at HollyShorts on August 20th, Tuesday. It’s about an attention-starved dude (Simon of course) trying to off himself at his birthday party in the presence of the few friends he has and unlikely strangers alike. This ultimate act of desperation may see a little extreme but for a socially awkward person, it’s time he made a statement. It’s time he emerged from his shell and became the topic of conversation albeit at a heavy price! ALISON plays Alice, Simon’s rather encouraging friend who brings a beautiful yet similarly introverted girl to help find a love connection. Adore that ALISON’s character is imbued with a wry humor, at times belittling Simon but strangely genuine in her efforts to instil confidence in him. As Alice, ALISON is fetching and we see ourselves as finding no reason to fault her.

If you’ve seen her intense scene on “Castle” from her reel above, it’s evident she excels not only in dark comedy but also those more nail-biting moments onscreen. Thanks to her spunky winsomeness, at times she reminds me of the charmer that is Maggie Gyllenhaal. Check her out looking all Golden-Era Hollywood glamorous in another short called “Flowers For Clarence”. The ALISON TRUMBULL OFFICIAL SITE is a must visit as she also has a blog that has plenty of info on her projects both on TV and Film. It’s always great to see actresses making time to connect with fans and giving us a glimpse of their life on and off set. Meanwhile she just sent me a pic of her (see below) on the red carpet at HollyShorts looking exquisitely beautiful. Already she’s attracting attention and could very well be a talent to cherish.
