We Talk about Meeting Alice Englert
We admit, we are like you. We wondered who the hell is Alice Englert and why has she been cast as Lena? So, when we had the chance to head to New Orleans, we were super excited to get to know the girl who would be playing Lena.
Dave (the set Publicist) walked us into video village, and you could see Alice sitting in the Caster Library. She looked like a small delicate doll, hidden behind a podium. Her skirt hung down over her ankles. She looked like she was getting swallowed behind the podium. But somehow she looked perfect.
Here’s the thing about Alice. She’s quiet, she’s soft spoken, but she draws all attention to her. She doesn’t look like a little girl lost in the big bad world of Hollywood. She looks like Hollywood can get lost in her.
Our interview with Alice took place in between waiting for Alden to come back. However, when you are with Alice, the worry of getting to finish your interview with Alden is the last thing from your mind.
When we walked into the room where we would be interviewing Alice, she smiled at each one of us. She didn’t seem to mind that there was a group of journalists invading her space, and about to try to pry into every detail of her life that we could.
She smiled and asked if we needed chairs or anything. She seemed to have a genuinely kind and worrisome heart. Alice Englert makes an impression. Below is part one of the interview with Alice. Next week, we’ll give you part two (and that will explain why we think she’s absolutely perfect for the role).
We Think You Should Read BEAUTIFUL DISASTER by @JamieMcGuire_
We don't necessarily review books on here, but there are sometimes that we want to talk. We want to tell you about the books that we read, and the things that we love. I used to work for a production company, and I read a book a day for a year. Now that I read for fun and I can talk about what I read, I want to convey what I love. And I figure, what the hey.
So, I had the pleasure of getting a book when I was in Canada visiting the set of The Mortal Instruments. The great people at Simon & Schuster gave me a copy of 'Beautiful Disaster'. Now, I had heard a little about the book. Some described it as a rip off of Fan Fiction, some described it as porn. But a good friend of mine said that it was a good read, and being as she does a lot of book reviews, so I said what the hell.
I read a lot of genres. This New Adult craze is a mystery to me. Sex in teen books? Well, hey, count me in. So what's this book about...
INTENSE. DANGEROUS. ADDICTIVE.
Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
Now I am going to admit it, I LOVED this book. Here's the top three reasons why - ...
