Victoria Sanchez voted Best Actress
Victoria Sanchez was once again voted by readers of The Mirror, Montreal's top alternative newspaper, as one of the city's Best Actresses in 2008. She ranked third, after someone called Elisha Cuthbert, who plays a role in some unknown show that has something to do with the number 24. The reason I'm not writing about Elisha, is because Victoria has been in more films, is a helluva of an actress and hasn't had her big break yet. She's a beloved figure in the Montreal sci-fi and genre scene and can be found nightly at the screenings of the Fantasia Film Festival. She just shared the screen in two made-for-TV movies with fan-faves Charisma Carpenter and Shannon Elizabeth, with whom we had a grand time in Montreal (don't worry, Shannon, the photos will stay locked away in the Swiss vault I told you about). Victoria acquired recently the film adaptation rights of Wait Till Helen Comes, the famous ghost novel for children, written by Mary Downing Hahn, and penned a captivating screenplay. She's out there husslin' to get it made and producers are starting to take notice. Expect to see it soon at a theatre near you. And yes, I can pass along serious enquiries from producers and directors to Victoria in exchange of vintage comics.
