Eye-catching actor Elisabetta Fantone is gearing up for another big screen performance in the original feature film "Havana 57". The film, which recently wrapped in Cuba, is another vehicle for Elisabetta to show off her on-screen talent. The multifaceted artist is not only an acclaimed performer, but a visual artist, author and singer as well.
The Italian-Canadian actor is not slowing down, as she continues with impressive projects in every realm of the world of entertainment. Fresh off a well-publicized tour of her art at high-profile galleries, Elisabetta jetted off to Cuba to work on her next big project: The original feature film, “Havana 57”. The noir mystery was a co-production between Canada and Cuba, and touched upon the subjects of the mob, revolutions and a beautiful dancer, played by Elisabetta.
“Havana 57” follows Rubén Velez (Juan Reidinger), a newly appointed homicide detective in the Havana police force of the 1950s, before the Cuban revolution. Velez is working on the case of a murdered chorus girl with connections to the mob, but soon finds himself in danger when his idealistic principles of justice meet head-on with the corrupt and brutal practices of the police force. Elisabetta plays Juliana in the film, a torrid Cuban dancer and roommate to the murdered chorus girl. Juliana seduces detective Velez and reveals secrets that lead him to the killer, but also puts herself in the mob’s line of fire. She finds herself torn between her need to survive and her love for Velez.
Elisabetta is not only a talented actor, widely recognized reality television personality, model and author, but a gifted painter as well. She has been garnering attention across North America for her engaging Youtube videos, which capture her creating her dynamic art pieces, from start to first. Elisabetta is known for recreating the images of iconic figures, and is often recognized by the subject of her pieces! Recently, she was commissioned by the Kardashian sister’s to showcase a piece of her art in their famed clothing boutique “DASH”.
Her artistic work isn’t the only aspect of her career on the rise. The vivacious actor is starring in the highly anticipated Indie feature length drama “My Name is Sandy”, which examines the world of prostitution. Elisabetta takes on the brutally emotional and physical role of an illegal immigrant and high-end prostitute from France named Sandy.
