Examiner: Music Artist Laura Izibor On Her Passion For Music & Making The Move from Ireland To ’Tree Hill’!

Posted by Amanda with No Comments

The International press called her “The Soul of Ireland”; and with her powerful vocals and lyrics full of passion and spirit, I would call Laura Izibor ‘the soul of music’. Her voice is a pure echo of immense talent. And her songwriting has led to lyrics delivering messages straight to the soul. This year Irish-borm Izibor was finally able to deliver that powerful music off her debut album ‘Let The Truth Be Told’ to the U.S while diving into the world of acting with a recurring role on the CW hit series One Tree Hill; where she plays Erin, an Irish music artist who is slowly coming out of her shell and making her debut into the music world. All the way from Ireland, Izibor recently spoke with me about making the transition from singing to acting, the great time she had on One Tree Hill, and why working in Wilmington, NC reminded her of growing up in Ireland! Izibor also talked about the special experience she had singing with one of her idols’ Nina Simone for the soundtrack of the highly-proclaimed film For Colored Girls. Izibor comes across as humble a person as she is talented, and with that combination one can predict people will be appreciating Laura Izibor and her music for many, many years to come.

TVGuide: Keck’s Exclusives: Vampire Diaries Werewolf Heads to Hawaii Five-0

Posted by Amanda with 1 Comment

Michaela McManus, who plays Vampire Diaries sexy (though lethal) werewolf Jules, is taking a tropical turn: she has just been cast in a February episode of CBS’s Hawaii Five-0! Michaela will play a tough district attorney named Kathleen Roberts who will work alongside Grace Park’s character, Kono.

She has also shot several more episodes of Vampire Diaries, which returns to the CW with new episodes beginning January 27.

Some of you may have seen the striking 27-year-old in her recurring role as Lindsey on One Tree Hill, followed by another recurring role on Law & Order: SVU as A.D.A. Kim Greylek from 2008-2009. Nice to see with some hard work one can move from A.D.A to full-fledged D.A. in a matter of seasons.
