Natalie Shaw is “So Good!”

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.

Natalie Shaw in Touch

Natalie Shaw Touch

Here is Natalie Shaw the second time I met her at the premiere of the film Touch at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood.  Overall the festival was a good time, great quality, but Touch and a short titled Personal Day were above and beyond the rest of the films.  Natalie Shaw‘s performance was excellent.  This is a picture of her being interviewed on the red carpet:

Natalie Shaw in From the Woods

I’ve met actress Natalie Shaw twice now, once at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California, and at the Cannes Film Festival in France, both in 2014.  She was there for the film From the Woods, and I recognized her from a television show and could not believe how nice she was.  I decided to start this blog as a place for Natalie Shaw fans.  She is excellent in Nicholas Wendl’s award-winning horror film, From the Woods.  This is the poster.
