TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3141:
With the success of the Iron Man 2 Film still going strong, I wanted to 'Spotlight' another actress who was in this film...
That would be Natalina Maggio as pictured above!
Tina and I met her during the Wizard World Anaheim Comic Con back on April 18th.
Natalina saw my shirt's embroidered 'Comic Book Collectors Blog.com' title and mentioned that she would be appearing in the then upcoming Iron Man 2 Film! That's the reason for the Iron Man Bobblehead figure at her booth!
However, Natalina is already an accomplished actress, before her role in this Iron Man 2 Film came out on May 7th!
Indeed, she was on another show, 'Heroes', that Tina and I also watch. She was a cheerleader on two episodes in 2009, as seen to the left. The episodes' titles were: Chapter One's: 'Orientation' and 'Jump, Push, Fall'.
There is a long list of credits for Natalina at IMDb.com, as seen by clicking that link.
Here's just a few excerpts of her other accomplishments so far, as seen at Talent LA Casting, as her career just started in 2004:
How Natalina's career started out: "A natural entertainer, she made her television debut in 2004 when she lent her distinctive, childlike voice to two episodes of the hit Japanese cartoon series Gunparade March. That breakthrough role paved the way for a number of other exciting opportunities, and Natalina Maggio was soon invited to provide voice-over narration for programs on the Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon".
"Natalina Maggio finally stepped in front of the camera the following year in 2005 when she found work as a featured background performer in a number of hit shows including The O.C., One on One, Las Vegas, Criminal Minds, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, What I Like About You, Living with Fran, and Hot Properties."
"Natalina Maggio made her big-screen debut in 2008 in Tic, a pulse-pounding action film about a pair of small-time London criminals who travel to Los Angeles. The movie -- which starred bankable British actors Lennie James and Treva Etienne -- gave Natalina Maggio one of her most substantial roles to date."
"Finally Natalina Maggio screen tested for Iron Man 2 this year and was chosen to be one of the featured models at Tony Stark's birthday party."
All this so far and she is only 28 years old!
I'm looking forward to seeing and her in more roles in the future. Hopefully some more comic book movies so I can blog about her here again! Until then, you can see what she is doing next at her web site NatalinaMaggio.com, as I don't see a Facebook Fan Page for her as of yet...
