 alt=


With her fetching presence on several films of note, Czech-born British darling Petra Bryant is destined to be one of the most desirable starlets in 2016 and beyond. This week she stars in the sci-fi flick “Abduct” as Lyra, a Russian UFO Researcher and she’s joined by Sienna Guillory and William B. Davis a.k.a. Cigarette Smoking Man. With its talented cast and the themes that are a treat for sci-fi fans including conspiracy theories about aliens, paranormal incidents and insidious Men In Black, “Abduct” is one to savour until the final reel. Continuing this supernatural theme, Petra can also be seen in the UK horror movie “My Guardian Angel” where she plays Elena, a school teacher who bonds with an autistic girl Hannah. As their relationship strengthens, Elena’s concern for Hannah’s wellbeing deepens and Petra supplants her benevolent character with compassionate finesse. It’s wonderful to see the likeable Petra being part of the atmospheric British Horror Film Revival we’ve seen this year such as “The Witch” and “The Boy”.

Her versatility is truly coming to the fore with a novel to small screen adaptation called “Girl On A Rocking Horse” and roles in rom-coms “For The Love Of George” as well as “The Wedding Invitation”. She also has the action film “Fallen Eagle” in the works and will return to the sci-fi genre with “The Last Scout” which is about the adventures of a crew on a spaceship deployed into space after a nuclear war. The heavenly Petra is very much in our minds as an irresistible screen siren to watch.

She guest-stars on “Jane The Virgin” alongside none other than Gina Rodriguez herself in the episode ‘Chapter Forty-One’. Marri plays Lilah, the waitress who together with Gina’s Jane Villanueva tries their utmost to cover for the hapless Anezka (Yael Grobglas) who is mostly lacking in waitressing aptitude. When faced with their annoying manager coldly labelled as Vest, the girls put their foot down with some much needed attitude. Of course, Gina is known for her convivial personality and likewise Marri has a similarly affable glow that being besotted with her comes easily. As you will see on “Jane The Virgin” and her collection of shots on print, Marri is certifiably photogenic.

She’s also the creator of “Sunday Morning”, another web series that delves into the bedrooms of diversely sexual orientated couples. Kudos to Marri for roping in Amber Benson, esteemed Buffy The Vampire Slayer alum into the fold of her love talk between the sheets youtube show. Taking on the mantle of writer,producer and actress attests to her savviness in this industry.
