  • I love her as Kris Furillo!

    I'd have to say that Genevieve is one of my favorite television actresses. She hasn't really appeared in any other shows except an episode of The Dead Zone, but I think she could have a big career. Just seeing her in Wildfire, she's been able to do many different emotions. I think she could be talented in any kind of situation: drama, comedy, action adventure. She's proved that she can do just that because in different episodes she's shown us what she can do. I would like to expect that she could make it on the big screen after a little more experience. But Wildfire is starting her out to an even bigger career. Genevieve is also very pretty, and she seems very down to earth. I think that she has that kind of girl next door look, but a tougher attitude. She can be very shy and genuine, but she can also stick up for herself. She can be the girly girl, but she can also be the tomboy. I think it's that kind of flexibility that will make her a big star in time. But for now I think she's doing an amazing job as Kris on Wildfire, and I can't wait to see what happens next.moreless
