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.

Rising Starlet: Eline Van der Velden

The enticement of a talent lies in both their beauty and accomplished personation which Eline Van Der Velden effuses with radiance. One can certainly see why actresses with Dutch roots are much coveted and Eline can be regarded as wonderfully appealing as we’ve seen with someone like Shantel VanSanten who is of part Dutch descent. Eline was born in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles and speaking from personal experience when I had a great Dutch female friend while studying in Australia, they are blessed with overflowing charms. No surprises to see she was the leading lady and creator of the web series “Miss Holland” where her titular character pursues her dream of becoming Miss America. Eline could soon be getting a worthy mention seeing how she’s appearing in “Flying Home”, the romantic drama with Mr Fifty Shades Of Grey Jamie Dornan.

There’s no genre she can’t do with notable performances as a Welsh Princess and several sketches showcasing her comedic whims which can certainly tickle us pink. Eline is also a writer/director and holds a Master’s in Science (Physics) from Imperial College London which makes her mind an attractive quality too ala The Theory of Everything. If you think Australians are great with accents then meet Eline who has mastered the art of intonating American, English, Dutch, German and French accents as well as being fluent in each. Check out her posh accent from the Eline Bares All video on youtube (above) from her web series “Sketch My Life”. She’s rather dreamy ( Have I said how much I love blondes)!
