Actress Elena Campbell-Martinez Brings a Healing Approach to Starz Series ‘Vida’

A slice of life in East LA has come to the small screen with the new Starz series, Vida. It’s a realistic tale of two sisters in the Latinx community dealing with the good, the bad and everything they didn’t know – like their mother was queer.

Actress Elena Campbell-Martinez enters the story in the first episode as ‘Doña Lupe’, the local spiritual healer or curandera, who speaks to the dead and offers sage advice to the grieving sisters.

Earlier this year, Elena appeared in Clint Eastwood’s terrorist attack biopic, The 15:17 to Paris. She is also recognized as the housekeeper in CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, as Gloria’s old hair salon boss on Modern Family, and for recurring as ‘Lisa’ on Amazon’s Hand of God. Originally from Texas and a graduate of Rice University, Elena credits her passion for acting to her Mami ...Read more

“Shadow of Death: The Book of War” – Black Lightning S01E13 Review
“Go Black Lightning, you’re burning up the quarter mile. (Black Lightning, Go Black Lightning)”

Nobody else thinks of that when they hear the show’s title? It’s just me? Oh well.

Oh, and FYI, Black Lightning’s back. Again.

So we come to the season finale of CW’s freshman superhero series. Because when four shows aren’t enough, you toss in a fifth one. And in fairness, Black Lightning does add something new to the CW superhero dynamic, even if it isn’t part of the Arrowverse or CWVerse or Berlantiverse or whatever.

It gave us a world where metahumans are bioweapons, a plot device they used to have on The Flash. Remember General Eiling? It’s not like that show does, so why should you?

I also wonder what Black Lightning’s philosophy is on killing. Barry was ragging on Ralph tonight about killing never ...Read more

Actress AMY RUSS Brings Sibling Melodrama on NBC's New Show 'RISE'

The new NBC series Rise mixes a musical and melodrama with plenty of teenage (and adult) angst for a heartfelt and often inspiring show.

In the recent episode “Victory Party,” one of the storylines showcases Lou’s (Josh Radner) self-doubt when his lesbian sister-in-law Carol Gordon shows up. Her life choices have clearly taken a different and more successful path than her sister, Gail (Marley Shelton), and Lou is forced to confront that.

Carol is portrayed by New York-based actress Amy Russ, who you might recognize from other projects like Divorce, Orange is the New Black, The Blacklist, Royal Pains, The Sopranos, Till Proven Innocent and Oscar nominated film The Post. Amy is also set to appear with Paul Giamatti in Tamara Jenkins new film for Netflix titled, Private Life.

I recently caught up with Amy Russ to find out more about working on the new hit show Rise.
