WRITTEN IN BLOOD SCREAM QUEEN OF THE MONTH-JULY, 2011-APRYL CROWELL

For the July, 2015 selection of the Scream Queen of the Month I decided to do things a bit differently; instead of featuring an established star I’m going with a young woman working hard to make her way in the world of show business.

Apryl: “Modeling I dabbled in off and on and didn’t truly start to pick up until my first crew picture from set (Camp Dread) which is also how acting started. I went as an intern with my good friend Cleve Hall to learn more FX makeup. From that they needed a few extra people for a few scenes; then a few days later they needed some dead bodies and they needed to reshoot a scene. The actress wasn’t there so I had to be her body double. So it was a combination of both (acting and modeling) from that one set. The rest is history. It’s opened so many doors and for that I’m so thankful.”

While I will tell you that Apryl was born on July 30, 1986 in Charleston, South Carolina, a town just a little over 200 miles from this writer’s hometown of Spartanburg, South Carolina. What I am not going to talk about is her past accomplishments. I’m not going to tell you that she’s made appearances on the TV documentary FBI: Criminal Pursuit or the “Pacific Northwest“, “Mantis Man” and “Spottisville Monster” episodes of Monsters and Mysteries in America. You will not hear a peep out of me about her roles in films like Music Store Massacre (2013), Zombie Isle or Camp Dread (both 2014).

What I will tell you about is what Apryl has going on for the future. She’s in pre-production for the TV movie Urban Legends to Die For and the movie Dracula’s War. She’s in post-production for the TV series Legends & Lies and the films Aleister and Zombie Croc and in addition to all that both the mini-series American Genius and Sasquatch vs. Yeti have been announced.

It is easy to see that Apryl is working hard to make it and I for one hope that she goes far. I’ve spoken with her several times and can tell you that she is sweet, friendly and above all appreciative of the support she has received from fans thus far in her career. That, and the fact that she’s gorgeous, is what makes her the July, 2015 Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month.

APRYL, NO FOOLIN’

She’s 5’7″ with a 35-25-35 figure with dirty blonde hair and bright green eyes.

You can read more and see more at her official site Apryl Crowell.

You can even friend her on Facebook.

WRITTEN IN BLOOD SCREAM QUEEN OF THE MONTH-JUNE, 2015-KACEY ROHL

KaceyHR1

To those of you who know me well enough my choice of June Scream Queen should come as no surprise. On June 4, 2015 the third season of Hannibal will begin and on that day a strange osmosis will occur of which the prognosis will be one in which that night my TV and I will become one as I immerse myself in the world of Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter. Perhaps Kacey Rohl will once again reprise her role as Abigail Hobbs. Who knows; although things didn’t look that great for her in the Season Two finale (or for anyone else for that matter), I have learned to expect the unexpected when it comes to Hannibal.

Born August 6, 1991 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Kacey is the daughter of television director Michael Rohl and her mother is playwright and comedian Jan Derbyshire. Kacey began studying acting at the age of 14 and her first role was in the revived television sci-fi drama V. In fact most of her work has been in television, with roles in Red Riding Hood, Sunflower Hour, Sisters & Brothers (all 2011) and Flicka: Country Pride (2012) being thus far her only forays onto the silver screen.

Kacey’s TV work includes the series Caprica (2010), R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: The Series and The Killing (2011), Supernatural (2o12) and Working the Engels (2014). TV Movies include The Client List (2010), Geek Charming (2011), Taken Back: Finding Haley (2012) and Doubt (2013).

There you have it; it is here that we give a warm welcome to the Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month for June, 2015, Kacey Rohl.

WWE/NXT DIVA OF THE WEEK-BECKY LYNCH

Every Saturday I will feature the WWE/NXT Diva of the Week. I will base my decisions on what I see on Monday Night Raw, NXT on the WWE Network* and WWE Smackdown! I will post a photo, info and my reason for choosing the particular Diva for that week. This will be based mainly on their actions inside the ring; however what they do on the outside can have an impact as well. This is feature that I hope you will grow to enjoy. I have been thinking about doing this for some time now as I have wanted to feature something outside the realm of horror.

This is where I shut up and get this show on the road.

WWE/NXT DIVA OF THE WEEK-BECKY LYNCH

WWE/NXT Diva of the Week-Becky Lynch

WWE/NXT Diva of the Week-Becky Lynch

Born on January 30, 1987 in Dublin, Ireland

aka Rebecca Knox

Trained by Fergal Devitt (Finn Bálor), Gonzo De Mondo, NWA UK Hammerlock and Paul Tracey

She made her debut on November 11, 2002

Finishing move(s): Seated Fujiwara Armbar, Exploder Suplex, Four-Leg Clover

Why she is the WWE/NXT Diva of the Week:

Lynch and Sasha Banks put on a match at NXT Takeover: Unstoppable that in my humble opinion was even better than the main event match later that night between NXT champion Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Although she failed in her bid to win the NXT Women’s Title away from her former ally, Lynch more than held her own by taking Banks to the absolute limit as shouts of “THIS IS AWESOME” filled the arena. On this night Becky Lynch proved beyond any doubt that she belongs in the upper ranks of the NXT and WWE Divas division.

WRITTEN IN BLOOD SCREAM QUEEN OF THE MONTH-MARCH, 2015-JENNIFER BLANC-BIEHN

JBB

I had a lot of fun with the March Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month, Jennifer Blanc-Biehn. I was able to correspond with her via Facebook and e-mail and she was incredibly cool and appreciative of being this month’s choice. Mind you, I was always cordial and there are two reasons behind this. The first reason is well, duh, I wouldn’t have been anything but cordial and the second reason is in case you haven’t noticed her hyphenated surname is Biehn; as in Michael Biehn. The man has taken on The Terminator, Aliens and Val Kilmer; therefore being cordial to his wife is a top priority.

Jennifer Blanc-Biehn was born Jennifer Tara on April 21, 1974 in New York City and was raised by her mother, the actress Jenise Blanc. By the time Jennifer was 13 she was appearing on Broadway in Neil Simon’s “Brighton Beach Memoirs” alongside Jonathan Silverman, Fisher Stevens and Robert Sean Leonard.

Jennifer’s film credits in the genres of horror, thriller and science fiction include The Crow (voice only, 1994), Prank and Deer Creek Road (2008), The Jack of Spades and The Blood Bond (2010); in 2011 she appeared in The Absent, The Divide and The Victim, the directorial debut of her hubby, Michael Biehn, and Jacob. 2012 saw her star in Among Friends, the directorial debut of her friend and October 2012 Scream Queen Danielle Harris. In 2013 she starred in Broken Blood, Treachery, Malignant and The Night Visitor, her own directorial debut. She kept busy in 2014 with The Legend of Darkhorse County, the Salma Hayek action-thriller Everly and Hidden in the Woods. In 2015 she is set to appear in Altered Perception, The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story, She Rises, Mindless, Havenhurst, Fetish Factory, Deadly Retreat, Psychophonia, Kickback and Fembot. Of these ‘Altered’, ‘Night Visitor 2′, ‘Rises’ and ‘Psychophonia’ and a slew of other upcoming films are being produced through Blanc/Biehn Productions, the production company formed in partnership with her husband, Michael.  It is my humble opinion that if you look up the word ‘busy’ in any dictionary you will see a picture of Jennifer Blanc-Biehn right alongside it.

Her non-genre credits (what, you thought I was finished?) include Old Enough (her debut, 1984), The Brady Bunch Movie (1995), The Ride (1997), Fish Without a Bicycle (2003), The Things We Carry (2009) and Cowboys and Indians (2013). Among Jennifer’s TV Movie credits are Cool and the Crazy (1994), Friends ’til the End (1997), The Expendables (2000) and Nuclear Family (2012). She has appeared on several TV series: Hull High (1990), Married with Children (1991), Party of Five (1995), Providence (1999), Dark Angel (2000-2001), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2005), It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (2009) and Zombie Family (2012).

It is a privilege as well as an honor to welcome as the Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month for March, 2o15 the talented and beautiful Jennifer Blanc-Biehn.

FILLIN’ IN THE BLANCS

Her grandma Ann helped take her to her auditions as a child actress in NYC.

Jennifer’s mother, Jenise Blanc, owns and operates her business Canyon Car Service in Topanga Canyon and Jennifer is involved as well. This is their second venture together as mother and daughter. Their first business was Blanc’s clothing store.
