Ms. Christensen is indeed a gorgeous actress, and today's feminine fashions look lovely on her. Let's just hope that she has the integrity to remain true to herself, and does not cave in to Hollywood's homogenizing tendencies.

Interestingly, in her youth, Erika was nominated for a Young Artist Award--from the same awards organization that recently favoured Christina Schmidt with a nomination. Let's hope that Christina's successes will mirror Ms. Christensen's. Perhaps we are on the cusp of a real emergence of timeless beauty in the film industry.

Erika's next project is an adaptation of Chekhov's The Three Sisters. Fittingly, she will play Irina, the play's most romantic character.

Incidentally, Chekhov is no Ibsen, but he is a powerful dramatist in his own right. Three Sisters is a very downbeat play, but readers interested in getting a taste of Chekhov's craft might enjoy the author's delightful one-act gem titled The Bear. The text of the play is available online, at the link provided below, but the translation is less than ideal (e.g., the phrase, "little fathers," is a too-literal rendition of a Russian exclamation of surprise, akin to English phases such as "Merciful heavens," or "Good lord"). It is a unique celebration of life from this uncompromisingly realistic playwright.

Erika heralding an infiltration of genuine beauty in Hollywood:
