Pixie Lott is currently on her Crazy Cats Tour in England and performed at the Newcastle City Hall on December 17th.
The “Mama Do” singer has also begun exploring acting after starring in the Nickelodeon hit movie Fred: The Movie with Lucas Cruikshank. Lott had a great time and is open to more acting jobs:
“I grew up doing lots of acting at school and I did lots of shows and TV shows and stuff, but it’s the first time I’ve ever done a film so it was really exciting. I’d like to do more,” she revealed.
“Because its such a light-hearted, fun film everyone was really relaxed and the whole crew and everything was really nice.”
Pixie doesn’t have anything else confirmed as yet, but does say more projects are in the works.
For now, her Crazy Cats Tour is where you’ll find her. Check out her concert pictures below. Read more »

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader had it’s red carpet premiere in London at Leicester Square on November 29th and teen star Georgie Henley turned out for the event. The teen star wore a simple and elegant brown lace dress and tousled hair.
Georgie has starred in all three Narnia movies as Lucy, beginning with The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe when she was just 7 years old. Dawn Treader is the last novel that Lucy appears in (as a main character) so this is bittersweet for Henley. While she will have fond memories of the films themselves, the 15 year-old did take a hit when a fight scene went awry:
“The worst thing happened in a sword scene in which I had to fight off four grown men. We had almost got it right on the first take but the camera missed an important bit where I kick one of the men in, er, a not-so-very-nice-place, and they wanted me to do it again.”
“So we did it, but then I forgot that I was supposed to duck and one of the men’s sword handles hit me. I had to go to accident and emergency – I had a black eye and massive swelling on one side of my face. We had to continue shooting the next day, so they applied tons of make-up and digitally reshaped my face!”

Nickelodeon is adding another live action teen show to it’s prime time roster with the new show House of Anubis, beginning in January 2011.
Eight teens at a boarding school with magic, mysteries and secret ceremonies all try to figure out what is happening around them while dealing with love, friendship and betrayal.
Watch the trailer below – it looks interesting – I hope Nickelodeon puts out more photos and videos. I’d like to see more.

Pixie Lott performed at the T4 On The Beach in Somerset, England on July 4th. The “Turn It Up” singer was a great sport as she was jokingly asked about her past (possible) romances/crushes and who she’d choose for the rest of her life.

Oliver Irving directed a small independent film How To Be that featured Robert Pattinson before he exploded in popularity as Edward Cullen of the Twilight series. Pattinson had been a part of the Harry Potter phenomenon with his role of Cedric Diggory in Goblet of Fire, however his fan base was nothing compared to what it became with his vampire role. Irving cast Pattinson in between those two blockbusters for the part of Art, a 25 year-old guy stumbling through life confused and without much direction. Irving got very lucky and thanks to Pattinson’s fan base, How To Be is being seen by a wider audience than it probably would’ve been otherwise. With the upcoming DVD release on November 17th – right around the premiere of New Moon - the director is praising Pattinson’s ability to inhabit the character he developed for the film.
How was Robert Pattinson chosen for the role of Art? Did his musical ability play a role in his casting?
“We found him after a year and a half’s worth of casting calls. He just seemed the right person for the job. He was interesting to look at – but down to earth enough to play the part. He really seemed to “get it” – he knew people like the characters in the script, and understood the main character ‘ART’. Not having gone through drama school, Rob’s acting and response to direction fit in well with other main cast members who were not trained actors either. Rob actually underplayed his musical ability in the auditions, as he knew the character was meant to be rough around the edges when it comes to musical ability – but it actually was invaluable in the end that he understood the music references and had the technical ability to pull off what we were asking from him.”
I look forward to catching this on DVD and want to see his flick with Pierce Brosnan and Emilie de Ravin Remember Me when it comes out in February of 2010.
Who caught this film on the IFC Channel a couple of months ago? What did you think of the movie? Was Pattinson good? Tell us what you thought of his un-Edward performance.

Noah Cyrus and Frankie Jonas were interviewed on KTLA about the upcoming animated film ‘Ponyo’ from Disney and Ghibli studios. The younger Cyrus and the Bonus Jonas voiced characters (the goldfish/princess and the little boy who finds her) for the English-speaking version of the Japanese hit by Hayao Miyazaki. Miyazaki is the genius who made ‘Princess Mononoke‘, ‘Spirited Away’ and ‘Howl’s Moving Castle‘, among so many others. ‘Ponyo’ hits theaters this Friday, August 14th.

…English records show Watson’s distant relative was Joan Playle of Essex County, England, a 16th-century English woman convicted of witchcraft in 1592.Details are sketchy — naturally — and Playle’s conviction remain a mystery. She was unmarried, which often led to witchcraft accusations. During the Elizabethan era, poor, homely, old, widowed single women were often declared to be witches.
Apparently Playle was not executed but instead excommunicated (basically blacklisted/thrown out of) the Church of England.
Interesting bit of trivia on Emma’s family.
