Moody Monday : She might be the one to watch

by kranARI

Happy Monday everyone! Special treat this week…probably due to the good weather which has lifted my spirits over the weekend. These following people have risen to my attention as up and coming artists slash performers this past month so I thought I might share the enthusiasm.

the mummers

The Mummers front woman Raissa Khan-Panni, is raising eye-brows as a fab member of the Brighton-based UK band.


You might know this tiny redhead as the obsessive-compulsive super cute Emma Pillsbury of ‘Glee’. In real life she is            Jayma Mays.

Jessica Capshaw might be Kate Capshaw’s daughter and Steven Spielberg’s stepdaughter but she’s definitely captured our heart’s in Grey’s Anatomy this season. She plays Callie’s girlfriend – Arizona Robbins. Now who names their kid Arizona?

Another famous offspring as explored last week in : Famous spawn It runs in the FamilyMamie Gummer is paving her way through the theatre and film world as we speak. Having worked with the chick, I definitely thing she has something good to bring.


Our second ‘Glee’ graduate definitely has a sweetness no predecessor has managed to bring to the screen. Meet Diana Agron.

Not sure if Carey Mulligan can get her accent straight on her new film ‘Wall Street : Money never sleeps’ but the girl has undeniable talent that is bound to shine through in many films to come.

Thursday for Thought : It runs in the family

by kranARI

Some of my favourite photo shoots are those of actor mothers with their daughters when they first break into the business. Everyone is fascinated by their bond and whether the child will live up to the parents’ reputation. Same thing happens with siblings that are in the business. Even if they try to conceal any sign of competition or comparison, the press always seem to bring it up. Here are my top 5 family photo shoots and corresponding quotes.

Gwyneth Paltrow with mother Blythe Danner

My playground was the theatre. I’d sit and watch my mother pretend for a living. As a young girl, that’s pretty seductive“. G.P.

Vanessa Redgrave with daughters Joely and Natasha Richardson

I know the pressures of being the daughter of a great actress. But it’s inspiring. You learn so much that other people don’t get to learn until later on. My father being a director, I learnt a real work ethic.” N.R.

Sisters Emily and Zooey Deschanel


I grew up believing my sister was from Neptune and had been sent down to Earth to kill me. My sister Emily convinced me of it when I was a toddler. I think she’d seen ‘Invasion Of The Body Snatchers’ and her imagination ran away with her.” Z.D.

Susan Sarandon and daughter Eva Amurri

No matter who your parents are, you have to prove yourself — to others and yourself“. E.A

Cate Capshaw with daughter Jessica

With Steven and my mom being who they are, I tend to think, what can I do that can even compare or make them go, ‘Wow’?” J.C.

Mother Meryl Streep with daughter Mamie Gummer

A gift for concealment is an asset for an actress with such a public pedigree. In previews of
Les Liaisons Dangereuses, audience members could be heard whispering, She looks just like her mother!In the smaller theaters, it’s sometimes the first thing I hear when I walk on the stage,” she says. “And I think to myself, Just get past this.”
