Erin Moriarty

Joining this summer’s anticipated list of big-budgeted on-screen action is Amazon’s comic-book based series, The Boys; a fun black-comedy about “super-heroes” with a surprisingly grounded reality, where superheroes have taken a turn for the worse..and the showy. It’s also a reality that challenges gender roles in heroism and upholds individuals with integrity and a will, to be honest.

Erin Moriarty stars as Annie January, a member of the superhero team, The Seven. We sat down with the 25-year-old New Yorker about growing up in the city, the qualities of a good book, and what it’s likes being an actress in 2019.

He takes risks, and his role as the eccentric Colin Ritman in the interactive Black Mirror episode Bandersnatch begins to show his range. Will's latest flick is Midsommar, and he teams up with Ari Aster from Hereditary to spook and scare audiences even when the sun is out.

Storm Reid

At 15 years old, Storm Reid is a young actress working in one of the most shaky and quick- moving times in recent decades. Acting alongside contemporary greats and acquiring much knowledge through her journey. At 5’8 she stands a sophisticated, well-spoken professional.
