Been a while! Found an article on the director of From the Woods, in which Natalie Shaw is the star. A star indeed! Director Nicholas Wendl says:
I’ll never forget it. When Natalie Shaw came in to audition for Laura Mayfair who was the lead character, I saw her headshot where her hair was too short and she’s wearing glasses. I I decided to give her a shot. She came in with her short hair, glasses on, and she did the kitchen scene which is a very emotional scene for me. It is where she breaks down and lets her guard down. She did that scene in the audition room without me telling anything and she did it exactly the way I envisioned it in my mind. That’s when I knew. I thought let’s give you hair extensions and contact lenses and you’ve got the part.
She was so good. If she was able to read the character off the page with just this one scene, she could nail this entire character. She played such a tough gal in the movie that when I see her in person I forget she’s a sweet, fun bubbly woman. It was a transformation for her.

Just found this profile of Natalie Shaw on Rotten Tomatoes (I didn’t know they had profiles, and voila!) Check out this great shot of Natalie from her Cannes-celebrated film, From the Woods!
Click on the pic for her profile!
Don’t even ask me where I got this one – obviously I don’t have the rights to it, as you can see by the watermark…
Natalie Shaw in Cannes! Based on her Twitter, I think the girl on the left is Anna Rose Moore.
Found these great still photos of Natalie in Summer of Fear! The movie is on Netflix.
She’s clearly young in this film, IMDB says 1996, and you can see the talent.
Thanks to Haren Yong for commenting on a post with a link to his own Natalie Shaw Page! Check it out HERE!
He includes this scene from Just One Night, starring Timothy Hutton and…Natalie Shaw!
Here is a headshot for actress Natalie Shaw. If you are new to this site, I was able to meet actress Natalie Shaw at two film festivals, one in Hollywood, California, she’s so nice and talented, and I started this fan site. The pictures that I have are from the Internet. Fun fact that I just found out on her Wikipedia page: her sister is actress Vinessa Shaw.
