A talent on the rise, actress and musician Kiersey Clemons has quickly become known for the diverse and captivating characters she has brought to life on screen.

It had been announced that Clemons would be playing Iris West in the Warner Bros film The Flash alongside Ezra Miller, but the project has been put on indefinite hold, with little chance of it going forward.

Joe Dallesandro

Joe Dallesandro’s still hangin’ after battles with drug addiction and alcohol, brushes with the law, three broken marriages and numerous love affairs, plus the suicide of his only sibling Bob. One of the most beautifully photographed wild guys to come out of the Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey “Factory” era, the slight and slightly androgynous Dallesandro became an improbable pioneer of the male sexual revolution and the first film actor to be glorified as a nude sex symbol.

The Morrissey/Warhol movies were known for their bizarre, amateur standing, yet Joe and his completely uninhibited, walk-on-the-wild-side demeanor managed to hold an entire underground audience captive. Joe’s dangerous street mentality and raw erotic power became a definitive turn-on to both gay and straight audiences and his fame eventually filtered somewhat into the mainstream.

Proud of her Irish and Cherokee heritage, she also holds a master’s degree in teaching, graduated with honors, and taught middle school English for eight years.

She’s an experienced and professional stand-in and photo double, having worked for Kate Winslet, Patricia Clarkson, and Kirsten Dunst. Pamela is a skilled improv hostess with more than 12 years of local and regional television hosting experience, in addition to her commercial modeling and marketing professionalism.

Pamela Kay is a domestic violence survivor and advocate, and few people know she’s suffered and had to overcome surviving not only Hurricane Katrina, but the flooding of her beloved wildlife refuge in 2016 during an unexpected 100 year flood.

She’s only recently disclosed to the public that she’s fought to overcome her own struggles with the public pressure and stigma of her diagnosis of permanent disability after seven emergency surgeries in the last ten years, three of which could have left her paralyzed.

Through her challenges, she’s focused on encouraging others in similar circumstances, striving to work harder to prove her worth in the entertainment industry to support her wildlife projects and keeping her promises to the rescue felids she cares for.

She considers them her lifeline. It doesn’t matter what you can do, great or small, doing something to help others helps you forget your own inadequacy by empowering and loving those around us. That truly makes life worth living.

These days she spends the majority of her time pursuing her true passion, her volunteer efforts as a bobcat and lynx behaviorist and rehabilitator since 2007.
