Cannes Film Festival 2015 Spotlight: Indie Princess Grace Santos

 alt=  alt=

As the revelry of Cannes begins to kick into gear, the women of the screen such as the ravishing Grace Santos get us all excited. Graceful and gorgeous, she’s an indie darling who is set to make waves. Post apocalyptic features are all the rage with “Max Mad: Fury Road” and “Maggie”, the zombie version of a desolate world sparking up attention. In the same vein, her short film “Odessa” has the US descend into a chaotic nightmare in the wake of a global economic collapse. Grace captures all the nuances of the fiercely determined young mother Estrella who is trying her best to survive in a harsh new order. “Odessa” is screening at the Short Film Corner at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and with Grace in attendance, veneration for her is moments away. She’s a believer in character driven work and the thought-provoking “Odessa” has given her the ideal platform to captivate.

Grace has also so kindly gave us a tease of her current projects:

My main focus right now is getting two series off the ground. I started in the biz as only an actress but then realized I really need to take control of my acting career since there are less roles for women. So I went to law school and film school to understand how to produce my own work. So I’m currently working on taking the short film “Odessa” and turning it into a series. That is a post apocalyptic drama. Also making and acting in “Bree DOES Comedy” which is a comedy webseries.

“Bree DOES Comedy” is quite a saucy one which centers on acclaimed porn star Bree Olsen quitting the hardcore biz for a career in comedy. Grace plays her best friend and a bona fide obsessive Bree supporter. Their chemistry is one to savor and both are a riot! Grace is a mix of many nationalities (Filipino, Portuguese, as well as Spanish), an inkling of her background that is as diverse as her on-camera endeavors. She’s a woman of many facets and an intriguing prospect to keep note of…:)

Canadian Vixen: Aria DeMaris

 alt=  alt=

Canada’s hottest women have always been a sizzling mix of cultures and we’ll be attuned to the sauciness of El Salvador born actress Aria DeMaris in no time. This multilingual performer is a lady who will conjure avid interest just as much as she’ll leave you swooning at her innate Latina sex appeal. Catch her in this week’s episode of “Motive’ as Tammy,a sexy bartender at the strip club Blu Lounge whose boss comes under questioning in a twisted murder case of a plastic surgeon. The deaths are easily some of the most gruesome with one where entrails are macabrely hanging outside the body in what seems like plastic surgery gone wrong. With the case brewing she’s called in to an interview with Detective Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) where the plot thickens. On TV, Aria also played a vampire who manages to survive in the face of certain death by the Winchester brothers in “Supernatural” which we know doesn’t happen very often.

On the theme of horror, Aria did indeed mesmerized as Maya, a woman who exacted vengeance on the abusive men of her dark past in the short film “Dia De Los Muertos”. Her spanish roots came in good stead for her femme fatalistic ways onscreen as the “Dia De Los Muertos” went on to garner numerous nominations at the British Horror Film Festival. Incidentally she’s currently based in London and I hope this sassy actress gets called for a role on “Game Of Thrones” someday, considering how stunning the women are on that show! Aria has spoken of her fascination with anything to do with fantasy so it would be almost predestined. Plus the fact she’s gifted at writing, directing and even as an animator proves her worthiness of anyone’s ardor. Aria is a genuine creative canvas of enchantment with the potential to generate much fervor in viewers.
