Australian actress Sacha Raeburn took another step toward breaking into Hollywood on her own terms when The INDIE FEST chose her as the Best Leading Actress for her television series "Lost in LA".
The award in the eyes of some entertainment insiders is very significant because now she is on the radar screen of filmmakers and studio executives as one of the best actresses and producers who is not yet part of a a major project who very likely should be.
The television series is based on the challenges she encounters as an actress trying to break into Hollywood while trying to develop her find herself as person in Hollywood through the eyes of down and out actress Candace Benson and her best friend Bridgett Dunn.
She has been attracting attention from entertainment insiders and big budget filmmakers for her work since she arrived in Los Angles but this award will now likely change how she is viewed by some of the studio executives and also put her in contention for endorsements.
The television and film industry has changed drastically with the advent of web based series and she is an actress who now has the attention of not only the show's fans but television and film executives looking as a talent who can make people laugh but who is also independent.
There is nothing like success and recognition to enhance a person's value within their field and in Hollywood that is sometimes all it takes. Entertainment insiders are now noting how Sacha Raeburn is no longer just 'another name' in the long list of actors who are trying to make it in Hollywood but instead with her Indie recognition has now earned the critical acclaim that can serve as a launch pad to being considered for roles both in front of the camera and behind the camera.
Get ready to hear more talk about Sacha Raeburn, the 2014 winner of 'The Indie Fest' award of merit as a potential candidate for roles in television and movies in Hollywood and these are conversations that many will attest are long overdue.
