Amanda Schull.  She plays the female lead on the Syfy TV Series 12 Monkeys.  She was born in Hawaii, trained in ballet, ended up in acting.  As many of you know I am a big fan of the 12 Monkeys series.  What an incredible job of retelling a story and making it a totally immersive experience.  Amanda’s character Cassandra Railly has been so interesting to watch evolve.   Losing her innocence as the mission became the only thing that mattered.  At times regaining the empathy and compassion that is her core.  There is something intriguing that comes out in her relationship with Cole.  He seems to be her anchor to who she was when this whole story begins.  Without him she seems to skew more towards Dr. Jones’ fanaticism.  Cole keeps Cassie centered or at least brings her back when necessary.  The vulnerability of last week’s episode (Season 2 episode 7) was brilliant.  Just a continuation of the events happening to her over the past couple of episodes.  You could almost feel her pain at what happened.  Excited to see the impact of last weeks events tonight.  So I love her acting.  I admire her work ethic.  I think she is absolutely stunning.  Here are some pics so you can appreciate her to.  She is definitely my latest girl crush!  

12 Monkeys

Ok I am totally addicted to this new show on Syfy.  It is the best show I have watched since LOST.  Keith and I are watching it together and it has everything.  Army of the 12 Monkeys, Primes, the Traveler, the Witness, the Red Foreat and tall grass.  I am so not exaggerating when I say this is MUST see TV.  I am just like wow.  I even turned to Keith today when this crazy thing happened in how the Witness communicates in the past.  Well I turned to him and was like “no way, fuck me.”  He laughed at me because I was in shock but he wanted to take me up on it.  I said no because it was only like half way through the episode.  This was episode 5 of season 2 so when you get there you will know the fuck me moment.  So what was I saying?  Oh yeah 12 monkeys is sooooo good.  I promise you will like it.  I have several friends that are way into it now.  I tell everyone about it.  I mean everyone!  My hope is that the producers of the show will be so impressed by my efforts I’ll get a guest spot.  It is possible.  I never say never.  I could so play a prime.  Except I would survive because me and a paradox might be a little too much.  Unless it was a season cliff hanger.  I might consider that.  Did I mention paradoxes?  Yes they have those to!  I am not joking when I say this show is amazing.  There is a virus that kills 7 Billion people to.  Don’t forget 12 monkeys.  Season 1 can be found on Hulu, season 2 on Syfy.  

Oh here is a trailer of season 1

No excuses!
