Indie Princess: Davie-Blue

davieblue3

Sweetness and the indie genre often go hand in hand with the radiant Davie-Blue being an appealing face to be taken with. She stars in the familial comedy “Manson Family Vacation” that sees two brothers devoted to the ones they love with one sibling actually being a devout follower of the notorious Manson Family. David Duchovny’s Aquarius may show the grittier side of the Manson mythos but in “Manson Family Vaction”, it’s the dynamics of brotherly bonds played out with eccentric humor that’s the charm. In fact it’s a reunion of sorts as Davie-Blue teams up once again with actor/director Linas Phillips who worked with her in the imaginatively titled “Bass Ackwards” which premiered at Sundance. She recently attended the screening of “Manson Family Vaction” at the Seattle Film Festival, having made its premiere at SXSW and it would have been so fun to have gotten to meet her. With her film making its festival run at the Los Angeles Film Festival and already acquired by Netflix, we’ll be able to admire her for months to come. Seeing how her co-star Tobin Bell of “Saw” fame gushes affectionately on Twitter about Davie-Blue being a fab actress, ardor for her is a sure thing.

She’s been part of a fascinating group dynamic before, having also appeared in the short film “Annie Goes Boating” which garnered rave reviews at Cannes as well as SXSW. Even a mundane day in the park can be given depth in the hands of a great director and cast. She only recently played a character known as Sunshine and with her vibrant disposition in the features she’s done, there’s ample impetus to be enamored with her.

Rising Starlet: Rachael Perrell Fosket

Genial and charming, Rachael Perrell Fosket is a face we’ll hold dear especially with her onscreen accomplishments that’s likely to win her plaudits. Having won Best Actress for her role in the existential drama “Death On A Rock” at the Philadelphia Indie Film Fest 2015, Rachael should be hailed as a buzzworthy talent. It’s a thought-provoking performance that sees Rachael thread emotional highs and lows as Lillian, a young woman with a debilitating illness who deals with her mortality in strikingly unparalleled fashion. The art work showing a woman on a bicycle on the poster for “Death On A Rock” could in some way suggest the fleeting nature of human life which we all should really treasure. One can almost feel the pain etched on Lillian’s every being and it’s because of the evocative effect of Rachael’s depiction of the brevity that defines our existence.

Furthermore she’s appearing in this week’s episode ‘You Don’t Know Jack’ from “Grimm” which will surely make a impression on fans of the hit series. While Rachael may not be able to talk about her part at this time she has revealed her on-set experience with the cast and crew was profoundly wonderful. I’m already intrigued as how her character Heidi McDunnah fits into the current Jack The Ripper plotline but I’m betting it’s going to be rather emotional yet saucily tinged. Plus she’s guest-starring alongside the Grimm David Giuntoli himself and that’s noteworthy! Reggie Lee (Sgt. Wu) has lauded Rachael for her loveliness on Twitter which is a persuasive endorsement in itself. This pixie-haired beauty channels the gamine sensibility that audiences have been known to respond with affection. It’s time to watch Rachael shine!
