I have one scan from Entertainment Weekly from their Fall Preview issue. Here is just a very small blurb on Laura’s new show VAN HELSING. I’ll give you the text of it here, but to see it in its original format, please check out the scan linked here to the gallery.

VAN HELSING | NEW DRAMA | 10PM | SYFY

Imagine waking up from a coma to discover that vampires have conquered the world, you have supernatural abilities, and both the humans and bloodsuckers are vying to control you. That’s the premise ofVan Helsing, which follows Vanessa Van Helsing (True Blood’s Kelly Overton), a descendant ofthe Van Helsing, in a new interpretation of the Dracula mythos that’s entirely unrelated to the Hugh Jackman movie. “We go on this discovery of who she is and if she’s a savior or destroyer,” says Overton. “She doesn’t just come out of the gates like this warrior woman.” The reason both sides want Vanessa is probably because her bite can cure vampirism in a person. “We really dive into the psychology of what it was like for a humanturned-vampire to [become] human again,” she says. Our guess: confusing. SEPT. 23

I’ve uploaded stills and screencaps from the trailer and film of Laura’s new work LIMINA. Here Laura plays the part of Lois. The film was crowdfunded by Joshua M. Ferguson and Florian Halbedl. You can find links to it in the sidebar under Projects. The film is an independent project and premiered on June 4, 2016 in a private screening. So far there is no news on a wide release, but I’ll keep you posted. Laura looks so luminous in this film based on the trailer.

I wanted to announce that I have created a site for Laura’s ALPHAS and MOTIVE co-star Warren Christie (Cameron Hicks/Sergeant Mark Cross). And don’t tell me you didn’t see this coming? Come on, ya did! Just like Laura I discovered Warren through coming to ALPHAS via my love of David Strathairn. Warren as impressed me so much with his acting and his obvious handsome little boy looks. He’s a solid actor and I’m looking forward to bringing you more of his work. If you would like to check out the site, please click on the banner below to take you there.

I swear the television gods must hate me. Seriously. I have Laura’s one episode of GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE in which she played the part of model Marria. Laura looked stunning as usual, though she is 36 in real life she looks 18 in the episode. She’s a natural beauty and without so much makeup she just looks so fresh and lovely. But here’s the reason the television gods must hate me. Laura’s ALPHAS and MOTIVE co-star Warren Christie (Cameron Hicks/Sergeant Mark Cross) was in this series throughout the first season and one episode in the second season, and here’s the rub…they weren’t in the same episode and they didn’t share a steamy hot love scene! Can the television gods be any more vengeful? I don’t think so. Ah well!

One of Laura’s early roles of what could be considered a flaky groupie named Desiree from the Showtime series DEAD LIKE ME. The funny part of this is I used to watch the show because of my passion for star Mandy Patinkin dating back to the early 80s when I first heard him as Che Guevara in the musical Evita. Here Laura engages in some questionable behaviour with series star Callum Blue who played the part of Mason, a hapless Reaper who became one due to his experimentation with trepanation, the practice of drilling into the skull to admit more air or oxygen into the brain to try to expand ones’ consciousness. Apparently it didn’t work for Mason.

I have Laura’s episode of the DC series LEGENDS OF TOMORROW where she played the part of Gail Knox. While it was a blink-and-you-miss-her scene, I did manage to grab enough frames to upload to the gallery. Laura was largely very pretty and I loved how she looks in the 50s era costuming. Reminded me of her role of Jenny Slater in THE WATCHMEN.

Since I’m late to the party most of you might know that Laura has a role as Rebecca a vampire in the new SyFy series VAN HELSING. You can find out some information in the sidebar about Rebecca and as details are known I’ll post them here. So far Laura is signed to about seven episodes so far. Her first airs on the 29th of September. You can find out more about the show in the sidebar under the NEWS tag. So without further adieu…..

I’m cleaning up Laura’s work as Samantha Turner on the CTV Network’s series MOTIVE. I was able to finally get some stills from three of her episodes on the series. Enjoy.

Well it’s not like it’s about time! Yeah I know it’s been a long time no update, but I finally got around to making a new layout and posting about it. I hope you like the new layout I’m calling Laura Mennell Online :: Edgy. The first site layout I thought was playful, the second sophisticated. I was going to wait to let you see it after I’d finished the layout on the gallery, but here it is anyway. I’m planning on rolling out a lot of the updates to the gallery slowly. I’ve got a lot of work to do on other sites and I just have to try to apportion my time a little better to get them all done. I’m hoping to do that by the end of the year. For a list of all my sites, you can check them all out in the sidebar to the left under the ExLibris section. Please consider visiting. I’m also in the process of trying to get an update done to my site on Laura’s ALPHAS co-star David Strathairn who played Dr. Lee Rosen to Laura’s Nina Theroux, but so far like Laura here, I’m going to have to do that slowly. So I hope you like the new layout and will like the new format in the posts and sidebar content. Thanks for sticking with me and for being so very patient. You guys are great.

On behalf of MESMERISING :: LAURA MENNELL ONLINE I’d like to wish Laura the happiest of days. She turns a beautifully stunning 36 today and here’s hoping she spends the day relaxing with family, friends, and a good bottle of wine…and the best Vegan cake. The best of days Laura.
