Ramblings about entertainment, lifestyle and travel
There are some actors and actresses that have been around for decades, often thanks to their ability to slip into just about any character even if they’re mostly known to be particularly good at playing comedy roles, drama or romantic ones. Now it’s time to look at some of the rising stars that in ten or two years’ time, could form part of this same group of Hollywood greats.
Everyone loves a French belle and Léa Seydoux is just that. She’s lit up the screen in silver screen hits such as Midnight In Paris, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and The Grand Budapest Hotel and in 2015, she’ll have the public enamoured as the latest super sexy Bond girl.
She stole our hearts with her sassy role in Parenthood and Arrested Development but in 2015, Mae is swapping her supporting actress stigma for a starring role in wickedly funny comedy, The DUFF. As well as bucket loads of laughs this production is sure to pave the way for Whitman’s career as one of the next big names in Hollywood rom-coms.
Magnetic, macho and capable of adding complexity to even the gruffiest of characters, Mem Ferda is set to make some serious waves in 2015. His latest flick Gunned Down is pegged as one of the most captivating flicks of Cannes while his portrayal of ‘Big’ Bektash Ali in A Punter’s Prayer won him outstanding acclaim.
She’s definitely no shrinking violet but this stunning British model is a stranger to the silver screen. This year she’ll not only strut her stuff on catwalks but will also feature in five films including Kids in Love, Tulip Fever, London Fields, and Paper Towns Pan. Not to mention a starring role as the Enchantress in the highly anticipated Suicide Squad supervillain flick. Not bad for a model, eh?
Remember this guy from Skins? Now he’s back as a chilling terrorist antagonist in Jodie Foster’s up and coming thriller, Money Monster. With his rugged good looks and charisma and mesmerising on-screen presence he’s sure to give co-star George Clooney a run for his money.
Funnily enough I saw him at the Met Ball in New York at the beginning of May and pretty much none of the American fans waiting outside, knew who he was, though I have no doubt that in a couple of years he’ll be a household name.
Dark, mysterious and utterly captivating, Driver stole hearts on Girls as Lena Dunham’s no good boyfriend and snagged a role in the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Wars reboot. The buzz surrounding this guy is resounding and we’re certain that 2015 will see him offered a plethora of high-profile roles.
Is there anyone you think I’ve missed off?
