Laura scared me a little this week. How she just slinks right in there when no one is expecting her to…. Rebecca is getting a little demanding I would say. There she was doing all that threatening and seducing…. One really has to wonder who Rebecca was before she was vamped out!

I had these done on Halloween, but I had a bit of a personal issue I had to deal with and things just got behind. So here is one of Laura’s first films. Here she’s positively horrid as Susan LeGrow, The Bound Woman in this stylish film from director Steve Beck. The film is quite unique in its design and how it utilizes the steampunk look in the machines the world uses. It’s a good film, very scary when you see it for the first time. I know it has callbacks to a trilogy of films I remember from the late 80s and early 90s. Those were the Hellraiser films based on the original novella The Hellbound Heart written by horror genius Clive Barker. The whole house set reminds me of a giant Lamarchand’s Configuration Box from the films. And of course Laura had a very small “blink and you’ll miss her” role.

Somehow I got industriously bored and created over fifty avatars of Laura from her role of Nina Theroux from ALPHAS. They’re added to the new Icons & Avatars section of the site. I hope you enjoy. These are for message board profiles, social media accounts, and pretty much anything you’re heart desires. Click on the image below and enjoy.

Well, John’s at it again. I had hoped with a few days breather, he would cease and desist. Looks like that’s not likely. Here’s what he has said in a recent post (posted here under Fair Use for the purpose of commentary).

This page is focused on Positivity also cause Laura is about Positivity & Laura has said She does Not like negativity in this world & believes people should have Kindness & Empathy for each other 🙂 So i think She will enjoy that this page is more Positive. I still share links to the other Fansite & interview by another fan cause I’m also about Positivity & Kindness. This isn’t a page with alot of negativity posts. Anyways I think the other Fansite could have been trying to make Laura choose between us cause it doesn’t matter to that Fan since She has like over 30 other Fansites about other celebritys so She has nothing to lose by doing that. She can keep the super negative articles about me on her page as it will only just show negativity.

I’m not going to let anything like that get in the way of running this Fanpage.

Like Laura, I am all about positivism. I don’t like confrontation, nor do I like negative feelings. However, there comes a time when one has to defend oneself against attacks of a nature that are designed to target my integrity. Above all else a person’s integrity is paramount and John by the very nature of his taking what should have been a private thing public, he more or less dropped the gauntlet that could not go unanswered by me. He in effect slandered me. And again I am allowed to defend myself with the truth, not his ridiculous meanderings. It was never ever about one upping him. He claims that as a fan of Laura’s I’m somehow not a fan because I have other interests outside of Laura? The other fansites I have are, like this one, dedicated to people I have come to respect as much as I do Laura. Having come to Laura through my love of David Strathairn who played the part of Dr. Lee Rosen on the Syfy Channel’s program ALPHAS, I was impressed by Laura and her other co-star Warren Christie. But had it not been for David I would never have found either of them. John also doesn’t understand that I have a longer history of film and television than he has, and all of my fansites are just as valid as this one is for my reasons for creating them. I have very much to lose with all of them. All of them are equal in my eyes. All of them are my babies. The first one in particular dedicated to actress Tamara Braun having gone online back in 2006, and through that and the building of the others, I learned much in order to bring to this one what I have in terms of content and layout. And I know this might be very difficult for John to understand, but one can have more than one love. If someone were to have three children, does a mother love one more than the other two? I think not.

John says his page has a lot of “negative posts”… Well that’s on him alone. It’s not to do with me. Had he an actual understanding of what his actions did, then he might not have such negativity on his page. As for whether I want Laura to choose this site over his…. Ridiculous. More idiocy on his behalf. John once said to me about [paraphrasing] “Laura’s fandom is still young….” Yes it is. It is very young and one thing I know about these dedications people will choose the one that better serves their particular need. Whether that be a simple Tumblr page, or a full blown site… it doesn’t matter. John belittles Laura’s fans by saying what he did about wanting Laura to choose. I would never expect Laura to choose. That is both hubris and hyperbole on his behalf, and more of John’s showing he still hasn’t a grasp on what he’s done. We could still be honouring Laura by simply doing what I was asking him in the first place by not tagging Laura each and every time he had something to say to me. I think the word is decorum. And to insinuate that this site doesn’t matter to me as I have the others….. The amount of time I spend on each site is on a case-by-case basis depending on the amount of work the particular subject of the site has been doing, and our Laura is very busy with both VAN HELSING and TRAVELERS. Warren Christie is also busy due to his new show Eyewitness, so for the most part I’m spending a lot of time on their sites as oppose to say my site for veteran actor Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey), whose show The Path is on hiatus. With my site for retired actor and friend Jon Cypher, most of the work is done as I get the photos, stills, screencaps and whatnot to go into it. Most of the other people I have sites on are not currently working or working on projects due out in the future, so there’s no reason to work on any of them. But again for John to even dare say that Laura doesn’t mean as much to me as the others is another instance of his behaviour going unchecked, and I want to thank John for belittling well respected stage and theatre actors, one who appeared in one of the most well respected, and influential films of all time in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Not to mention a person Laura has worked with personally and who she considers a friend in David Strathairn.

As for my “super negative articles” I have written about him here, see this is called defending myself against his ridiculous rantings. I am more than willing to delete these posts as I did the last time John attacked me, however, I’m tired of having him rant without my giving the truth, again, of what actually happened. And I want to thank those of you who have written me privately to give both your support to this site, and for your kind words to me personally. Unlike John, those communications will remain private because that’s how one conducts themselves in society. That’s called respect and kindness. Two things John has as yet to understand. I have banned John from viewing this site in all ways. He apparently went someplace to view it through another IP and thought I wouldn’t know. So I have banned a range of IPs I feel he might use. That’s the power of a personal website. He may still block me on social media and have his acolytes there, but he still does not and never will have the truth. That ban will not lift until I get that apology I am entitled to. I’m not vindictive and hate all that has happened, but I cannot and will not lie down and take it. I don’t have to. It’s real easy to sit behind a pseudonym on the internet. But my name is out there. I use my real name and as such it is being smeared, and I don’t like it one bit. If he truly wants to be positive, he can unblock me on social media, apologize, then see how magnanimous I will be. But I’ll always be cautious. Twice bitten, three times shy.

So the moral of this story is: Don’t start the shit if you don’t want it hurled back at you. And with that, business as usual…..

I have Laura’s television movie A COUNTRY WEDDING for you. Here she plays the part of Catherine, a pretty vacuous Fasionista actress who wants the perfect wedding to her intended groom, Bradley played by Jesse Metcalfe who currently stars on the Hallmark Channel’s new series Chesapeake Shores also starring actor Treat Williams. You just knew from the opening scene Catherine was a piece of work. In the wedding dress photography scene one could almost expect Catherine to break out in a chorus of Madonna’s Material Girl. Yeah, right! An alternative to the story, Bradley goes back home to see to his affairs there and Catherine comes with him. Seeing the pluses of decompressing from such a vacant life, Catherine takes off the Daenaerys Stormborn wig and decides to live there with her beloved. I don’t know, just something a little less formulaic I suppose. Too funny was also Lauren Holly as Margaret, Catherine’s wedding planner. Lauren was in two other projects with Laura, that of MOTIVE where Laura played ADA Samantha Turner, and also ALPHAS where Laura played Nina Theroux. It’s so nice to get back to business.

Laura’s latest episode of VAN HELSING for you. My gosh Rebecca is a little vixen. The website Fangs for the Fantasy had this to say about Laura as Rebecca, “Ominous sexy vampire….” I’m in total agreement. I’m still waiting for more of Rebecca and for her story to be told. This episode was directed by Canadian actress Amanda Tapping. Amanda is well known for her ten years on the SciFi series Stargate: SG-1 as Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter. Great to see Amanda moving behind the camera. This episode was very good and the whole ambiance is pretty thick in terms of colour.

I have the screencaps from one of Laura’s Canadian-made movies. In SIGHT UNSEEN Laura plays the part of Chloe Brooks, a bit of a femme fatale who becomes involved in an investigation into a murder. Since this site is not a spoiler free zone or anything of the nature, because the film is over five years old and to me anything that has aired or been released is fair game, but Laura plays a real naughty piece of work. Good acting though on her behalf and that of Kevin McNulty who played the part of a detective investigating Chloe. McNulty is a favourite of mine as he played the part of Mel Ivarson on the CBC drama Arctic Air starring Canadian First Nations actor and activist Adam Beach. I’m still in a bit of a fog as to who did what to who…. I’m going to state, if you’re going to take any screencaps from the site, please give us a link back. Though the screencaps don’t belong to me or to anyone other than the film company, it took some time to record the program, cap, edit and upload. Thank you for your understanding.

I’m so sorry this update is so late. My computer was just dying on me and I knew I would lose everything on it if I didn’t quickly save it. Fortunately I was able to get everything saved and the computer fixed, which is a good thing because when it was fixed they had to wipe it. May I say thank you to the computer gods? My gosh Laura is not a nice one in this show. She looks amazing while doing it though. What a sexy vamp she is.

It appears Syfy has renewed Laura’s series VAN HELSING for a second season, this according to Deadline. Not sure where Laura’s character Rebecca is going to come in there….hopefully in the finale for this season she makes it out, but this is indeed good news.

‘Van Helsing’ Renewed For Second Season By Syfy

Four episodes into Van Helsing‘s freshman run, the new action-horror series has been renewed for a second season by Syfy. Production on the 13-episode second season is expected to begin January 2017. The announcement was made by series producer Nomadic Pictures and distributor Dynamic Television.

“We have a wonderful and terrifying road ahead planned for Vanessa, her allies and her enemies,” said Van Helsing writer/showrunner Neil LaBute. “I think this is a world and a story that can be sustained for many years and I am inspired to do so thanks to Syfy’s obvious trust and commitment in the storytellers, cast and crew.”

After a catastrophic volcano eruption, the last remaining underground vampires rise up through a dark, ash-filled sky to overtake America. Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton), a descendant of the legendary line of vampire hunters, awakens from a three-year coma to discover that she’s not only immune to the bloodthirsty predators – but also has the ability to make them human again. Van Helsing is a re-imagination of the timeless Dracula brand and stars Overton, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, David Cubitt, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, Aleks Paunovic, Laura Mennell, Tim Guinee and Paul Johansson. Episode 5 of the series’ first season airs tonight.

Van Helsing is produced by Nomadic Pictures, which also serves as the studio, with Syfy as co-producer. Executive producers are Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev from Nomadic Pictures, showrunner/writer LaBute, Simon Barry, Evan Tyler (Industry Works), Dave Brown and Zadoc Angell (Echo Lake Entertainment), as well as Daniel March (Dynamic Television). Dynamic Television is handling the worldwide distribution for the series, excluding first run U.S. television and Canada.

I have Laura’s new episode of VAN HELSING where she plays the sultry vamp Rebecca. She is one bad vampire.
