Blonde or Brunette- How do you like Masiela?

Masiela Lusha seems like a remarkable new star, capturing the minds of the young, as much for her looks as her other achievements. Her style has become quite popular since she appeared as Carmen Lopez in ‘The George Lopez Show’. She’s been spotted both as a brunette and a blonde at different times, carrying off both with terrific aplomb.

Carmen was a brunette, and looking like a real Hispanic. Masiela colored her hair blonde for the movie ‘Time of the Comet’ and for an upcoming flick ‘Blood: The Last Vampire’. She’s a face that goes with any color, and looks a natural in every. It’s tough to determine which style of Masiela Lusha we love more. Here’s a variety of Masiela Lusha photos to help you choose.

Emily’s Love for Horror

Legs folded, hands gripping the armrest till the knuckles turn white; yet we continue to watch in fear to see the terror unfold. That is the magnetic pull of the horror genre. Horror films are an absolute adrenaline rush, and one actress who seems to have an obvious liking for ghosts and darkness is Emily O’Brien.

Look at her credit list of works; you’ll observe that there have already been two horror features in her career. This penchant has started as early as in 2003, when she was the lead in a student film called ‘Pleasant Dreams’, directed by Kevin Klauber. This one secured the third place in the San Diego Film Festival awards.

That must’ve just given her a taste of the thrill that creepy movies are. The gutsy girl has gone again on to be a part of the chilling 2006 movie ‘Séance’, directed by Mark L. Smith. One look at the trailer and it’s enough to make even the brave hearts scurry for cover.

There have been instances during the making of horror flicks, when actors have dropped out of the projects midway, because they lost their peace. But Emily’s gone on to do two of such a kind. This talented actress is definitely made of steel. Quite the Iron Woman, isn’t she?

Being the Multifaceted Girl

Masiela Lusha, the actress popularly known as Carmen Lopez, switched over to the other side of spotlight and turned reporter for the Tampax-sponsored She was at the premiere of the new movie ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ at Los Angeles on May 31st, walking the red carpet in a chic pair of jeans (in sync with the movie style) and a fuchsia-colored T-shirt representing Being Girl.

Masiela interviewed some famous American television artists, much like herself- Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, Blake Lively and more. Masiela must have a knack for great communication, really. She’s proved she’s mastered writing with her collection of poetry. Now, she’s shown she can be a smooth talker too. This girl is truly amazing. Check out more Masiela Lusha photos in her website dedicated to her fans.

Interview with a difference!

Did any of you check out Lucy Hale’s interview with Buddy TV?

The gal surprises us with her genuine love for what she is doing. She seems simple and courteous going by the way she has handled the numerous questions on her latest show. Though Hale is a singer and actress, she wants to try out anything that is challenging.

Cool, matured and sharp are thoughts that first come to mind during this interview. There is a large transformation of her since the American Juniors days. She has come out of her singer image and has beautifully transcended into a television star. Don’t miss Lucy Hale in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants part 2 and 3. It would definitely be worth the wait.

Compassionate Sister Agnes!

Wow! What Compassion. That is what comes to mind when Masiela Lusha lights up the screen in ‘Time of the Comet’. The movie is about a Catholic nun and a Muslim rebel. The story is about contradictions and Masiela is a perfect match to the contradictory feelings experienced by the nun. Her face is a personification of compassion and love to her roots and people in a time of political unrest. Such varied emotions and that’s what makes it such a lovely performance.

Lusha has the perfect combination of a naïve but determined personality. Agnes’s chemistry with Shestan is very powerful and they portray love that goes beyond barriers. What a change from Carmen Lopez, the free and happy youngster of The George Lopez Show. She shows how much she can adapt to scripts and modes of entertainment with ease. Let us wait and see how Masiela can get more creative with her roles!

Emily, As Gypsy Rose Lee…

With her undying passion for acting, Emily O’Brien has worked her way to fame. While she still has a lot more to accomplish, her fans for sure would want to know more about her remarkable on-stage performances. Emily, who started with stage-plays at school, went on to pursue her theater majors in MiraCosta College. Her clear focus helped her in her career, and she soon found herself playing some exceptional roles on stage. Her role as Gypsy Rose Lee in ‘Gypsy’ was one such.

Shortly before moving to Los Angeles, Emily played the character of the infamous Gypsy Rose Lee. Set in 1939, ‘Gypsy’ is based on a true story of a girl named Louise, whose mother pushes her into burlesque. She then becomes the famous Gypsy Rose Lee, a stripper, who teased but never really stripped. ‘Gypsy’ was a musical and it required long, tedious rehearsals, and Emily untiringly worked to give her best performance.

Describing the narrative, Emily says that one of her favorite scenes was the strip sequence that required her to change into 5 or 6 different intricately designed dresses behind a curtain, with only two people to help her, and just a few seconds to do it. She had to then come out and sing a verse followed by a seductive monologue. Although it was a sweaty challenge for her, she claims it to be the best one by far.

Emily says that ‘Gypsy’ is probably her favorite and most memorable play. The play holds a special place in her heart, as she had grown very close to the cast and crew and also because it was her last year to perform with this cast before moving to LA. Emily O Brien now stands in the threshold of major stardom. Her talent and aptitude have become evident from her performance in ‘The Young and the Restless’. With her inspiring journey to fame, she sets an example for all those youngsters, who wish to make appropriate career decisions.

Justin’s Personal Favorite, Attack of the Growling Eyeball

It’s not a film that Justin Martin has acted but the title of a book that he loves to read. It was revealed in the just concluded Los Angeles Film Festival, which he attended. As part of this festival, its organizers had arranged a ‘Family Day Book Reading’ event. Justin took part in it along with Kim Wayens. The book he chose was ‘Attack of the Growling Eyeballs (Who Shrunk Daniel Funk?)’.

It was an amusing selection from Justin as it is a fun and delightful book. This book is written by none other than Lin Oliver who is not only a seasoned children’s book writer but also the successful producer of several family movies. ‘Attack of the Growling Eyeballs’ narrates the story of a boy named Daniel Funk who one day finds himself shrunk down to the size of his toe. Later he realizes that shrinking runs in his family and during his escapades discovers his twin brother, Pablo Funk, and also the secret behind his shrinking.

Justin read out this book to some younger kids who were delighted to see their favorite star and listen to his reading. Justin spent some time with the kids and went on to attend the premiere of the movie ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’.
