Sarasota Film Festival Spotlight: Indie Darling Shauna Bloom


The festival circuit reaches majestic heights in April and yet again, we are treated to the enchanting work of actresses such as the lovely Shauna Bloom. She’s appearing in the James Franco starrer “Memoria”, a coming of age story that mirrors the loneliness of being an outsider during one’s youth. Premiering at this year’s Sarasota Film Fest and seeing how “Memoria” is based on James Franco’s “Palo Alto Stories” and “A California Childhood”, there’ll be plenty of attention bestowed on the emotionally charged drama. Her role as Mrs Kerrigan is of a strict teacher which is line with the edgy tone that’s a fixture of this film. Shauna has certainly towed that very line on TV previously.

She’s notable for playing Rebecca Anderson, one of the many accomplices of the devious Red John who endlessly tormented Patrick Jane on “The Mentalist”. Interweaving between shades of good and evil is challenging for any actor and Shauna illustrated the dichotomy of her character with distinction. Plus she got to spend significant screen time with the dreamy Simon Baker which it is always wonderful. Shauna is also an accomplished stage actor and together with my fascination for the women of independent cinema as well as television, she’s one audiences should find a tender attachment with.

Ravishing Redhead: Siobhan Flynn

Angela Wright – Trailer from Mu Sun on Vimeo.

SIOBHAN FLYNN is a Welsh Cutie who has a specially fetching quality thanks to her captivating facial symmetry and bone structure. Back in her homeland, she would be lauded as being “Lush” and her attractiveness is apparent for all to see. Regarded by Wales Online as being in an illustrious group of sexiest women in Wales (she ranked 26 out of 50), SIOBHAN FLYNN has dazzled various areas of the entertainment world. From gaining buzz alongside Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson in “The Island” to her frisky supporting role in “Sex & Death 101” in a scene with Simon Baker, she’s been in the spotlight for some time. At the San Diego Film Fest, she appears as Mrs Carlson, one of the teachers of a honors student priding herself on excellence who is of course the titular character “Angela Wright”. From the trailer (above), it’s great to watch her utilizing the Welsh accent in the quirky drama which from what I’ve read is known as the second most sexiest accent.

SIOBHAN also has an interesting background in voiceover where she has done vocals for anime shows such as Hellsing and video games such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds as the foxy succubus Morrigan.
