omen have always been a force to be reckoned with throughout history. They have gone above and beyond what is expected, and more often than not, they rise to the occasion when met with adversity to overcome. Kristine Thao Lam is such a lady. She would have to be. She is not only the C.EO. of the Ms. Vietnam Beauty International Pageant, but she is also its founder. This competition is well-respected and has earned the trust of its contestants.

What inspired Kristine to create this beauty pageant, in the first place, is that she wanted to make it known to the world just how beautiful and intelligent Vietnamese women are, and she has definitely proven this in more ways than one. Before pursuing her entrepreneurship goals, she entered her first beauty pageant herself for Mrs. Vietnam Global. She found that she had a great deal of love and support from her family.

“California State Senator Joel Anderson acknowledges Kristine’s hard work and dedication with a Recognition Certificate Of Achievement.”

Because Kristine was supported by her loved ones, she was motivated to make an impact in the world that would bring awareness about Vietnamese women participating in beauty pageants. Finding a need and creating a solution to fulfill that need is exactly what an entrepreneur does. She was well on her way to evolving into a successful business woman with a mindset like that. “My first pageant experience was when I was crowned Mrs. Vietnam Global 2015 in the United States. It was the best experience. And it was an experience of a lifetime,” says the beauty pageant winner turned C.E.O. Within that same competition, she was competing with over 50 contestants from all over the globe on American soil, and at first that overwhelmed her and made her feel a little lost. However, she pulled upon her experience of being “on the stage” as a singer and actress, and used those talents to her advantage. She made the decision to do her personal best, and was fortunate enough with her beauty and talent to bring home the crown.

This beautiful and relentless pageant winner took on the challenges of creating her own beauty pageant with the same optimistic attitude. As with any business endeavor, trials and tribulations are going to be part of the journey. Of course, those pursuing their goals and dreams are told that these experiences are put on their path as lessons and tests in persistence. Sometimes those lessons are blurred by the tears, pain, and frustration.

“The obstacles I faced when building the Ms. Vietnam Beauty International Pageant were with certain people. They hated me. They tried to break me, they spread rumors, and slandered my organization,” Kristine reflects. She had to prove to the world that her vision mattered and that it was going to come to fruition. Her vision for the Ms. Vietnam Beauty International Pageant was built with “faith, virtue, and mind to showcase Vietnamese beauty and culture.”


THOSE PURSUING THEIR GOALS AND DREAMS ARE TOLD THAT THESE EXPERIENCES ARE PUT ON THEIR PATH AS LESSONS AND TESTS IN PERSISTENCE. SOMETIMES THOSE LESSONS ARE BLURRED BY THE TEARS, PAIN, AND FRUSTRATION.

KRISTINE IS ALWAYS IN THE LATEST TREND FOR HER APPEARANCE.

FINDING A NEED AND CREATING A SOLUTION TO FULFILL THAT NEED IS EXACTLY WHAT AN ENTREPRENEUR DOES. SHE WAS WELL ON HER WAY TO EVOLVING INTO A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS WOMAN WITH A MINDSET LIKE THAT.


When asked about similarities between American and Vietnamese women, Kristine spoke from her heart when she said, “No matter if we’re American women or Vietnamese women, we all have blood running throughout our bodies and we all shed tears when we’re sad.”

HOW TRUE IS THAT? This is the humanity of the world; we have so much in common, but it is the differences that oftentimes separate people from one another. This is one of the bridges that Kristine would like to build between Vietnam and the United States. She desires her pageant to be inclusive of all women and she is very welcoming of a variety of cultures. She has recently become very active within the Vietnamese community here in the United States. More specifically, the Ms. Vietnam Beauty International Pageant was just held in California as recent as May of 2017, and there will also be another one on December 2nd of this year at the Saigon Performing Arts Center in Fountain Valley, California.

To study the success of such a phenomenal woman would leave anyone in awe. She literally started the Ms. Vietnam Beauty International Pageant in March of 2016. Within a year, C.E.O Kristine is taking the world by storm by venturing across continents and cultures to build both an inclusive and culturally diverse brand with her pageant.

When prodded for what advice would she lend to female business owners based upon her success, she replied, “To be who you are and to remain focused on your vision, and have open arms to help others. What you’ll give, is what you’ll get.” Not everyone sees entrepreneurs as givers, but quite often that is exactly who they are. Kristine has spearheaded this pageant and has brought awareness to the world about Vietnamese women that might have not ever had an opportunity to have the light shine on their greatness and beauty. The reputation, prestige, and the professionalism of this competition has created an opportunity to attract Vietnamese women from all over the world. Anyone who is fortunate enough to win the crown from Kristine Thao Lam’s beauty competition is proud of their achievement, and should rightfully be. She has created opportunities for females to dream and imagine outside of themselves. What better gift to share with others than the freedom to create possibilities in their minds that later materialize into their lives? Positively impacting others changes hearts and causes paradigm shifts. This is what this ambitious C.E.O has been able to share with the world. The more one learns about Kristine Thao Lam, the more one is drawn not only to her beauty and grace, but towards her authenticity to help lift others to greatness because she sees it within them before they are even able to see it within themselves.

SHE CHOSE TO INSTILL VALUES INTO HER CHILDREN THAT CREATED THAT SAME LOVING ENVIRONMENT WHERE SHE CAME FROM

LYNETTE GUZMAN THE BALANCED AND ENLIGHTENED ENTREPRENEUR

L

ynette Guzman is defined by her love of life, family, and entrepreneurship. In her 52 years on this earth, she’s well aware that the ability to be able to integrate all three aspects into each waking day is exactly what makes life worth living. The appreciation for those that matter don’t get overshadowed by her drive and work ethic to succeed in business. Instead, they seem to interweave and create a tapestry of the person who she has evolved into. Lynette currently works in the trading business where she focuses on selling jewelries to a select clientele. Because of this, she has to travel frequently in order to attend jewelry fairs. It is her ambition as an entrepreneur that has opened doors to allow her to fully experience other loves that she has in life. For example, her love of traveling. She has traveled extensively to several destinations, which include Chicago, New York, California, Europe, and Asia, all for a myriad of reasons respectfully. She travels quite often to several locations within the Philippines as well, such as going to Tagaytay, Subic, Batangas, and Boracay. HOLLYWOOD WEEKLY 19

FOR LYNETTE, SUCCESS IS NOT MEASURED BY HOW MUCH MONEY ONE ACQUIRES, BUT “RATHER THINGS THAT ARE FELT INSIDE IN ONE’S HEART.”

HOLLYWOOD WEEKLY 21


Her unyielding work ethic was more than likely acquired from her zealous parents. Her father was a medical doctor and her mother was a pharmacist. No doubt that Lynette passed this drive to succeed to her own three children. Nevertheless, just like her own childhood memories were filled with love and a close-knit family, she also chose to instill values into her children that created that same loving environment where she came from. Despite the fact that she and her entrepreneur husband Edwin Guzman have been able to supply their children with a prosperous lifestyle, keeping them grounded, keeping life simplistic, and teaching them self-reliance and responsibility, are what she wants them to absorb and to apply the most in their own lives. They have always received a great education, and she expects that when they are done with school for them to move forward and live their own lives to its fullest. Lynette had many learning experiences as she was growing up. She received most of her education in the Nueva Viscaya province, and went on to attend Maryknoll College in Loyola Heights where she received her degree in Communication Arts in 1985. However, before going off to college, she learned first-hand what it meant to work. Her parents had a hospital in the province. This gave her the opportunity to wear a variety of “hats,” as she worked in different capacities as a “cashier, as well as labeling, sorting, and dispensing medicine to patients.” This learning through experience provided a solid foundation later on in life when she would become an entrepreneur.

HOLLYWOOD WEEKLY 23


Her background is what gave her the courage to go into business for the first time at age 21. She sold imported clothes from Hong Kong in the 1980s. In the 1990s she bought and sold real estate. In 2000 she sold artificial flowers and vases from Hong Kong to Thailand. She’s done it all, and it can be attributed to her childhood experiences with her strong familial footing.

24 HOLLYWOOD WEEKLY

For Lynette, success is not measured by how much money one acquires, but “rather things that are felt inside in one’s heart.” Lynette “believes that balance and a little bit of everything good and meaningful completes her life.” And who doesn’t strive for balance? Although she is inspired by the lives of others, such as Lady Diana, Mother Teresa, and John F. Kennedy to name a few, it’s knowing that she is living each waking day to its fullest on her very own terms with a life filled with “love, peace, and happiness,” that drives her the most.

26 HOLLYWOOD WEEKLY

tudio Movie Grill (SMG) is having a blast showing Girls Trip across the country at all 24 locations, but it’s Chicago’s SMG Chatham that’s really showing how fun a film and food combo can be, especially when the ladies are in the house. On the heels of the box office success of Wonder Woman, it was no surprise to see Girls Trip break box office records, too. MPAA said that in 2016 women bought half the tickets and make up 52% of audiences across the country. In contract, 62% of ticket buyers at SMG are female, and Chatham and Girls Trip in general may have pushed the needle even further. Following a stellar and solid #5 in US Box Office receipts for the weekend, SMG couldn’t be more excited to see record numbers on Tuesday, the 25th. In particular, we are celebrating our SMG Chatham location on Chicago’s south side being #3 in US Box Office. Chatham sold out 40 show times and had a total attendance for the day of 4,831, breaking attendance records for that location. SMG currently has the highest gross per location average for Girls Trip among the top 20 exhibitors and is #4 overall, which makes CEO Brian Schultz ecstatic. “Our stellar teams from marketing to operations and

Oxana Lovich had a true passion for acting and at the age of seventeen she got her start in the theatre. There she received on the job training and knowledge, in particular, the Stanislavski method of acting. Oxana was also a competitive ballroom dancer. At this young age, she became very interested in spirituality and self development, which has led her to currently be a life coach. All this experience has made her a great actress.

LOVICH THERE IS A COMBINATION OF POSITIVITY, INNOCENCE AND INTELLIGENCE THAT MAKES ME A UNIQUE ARTIST

T

hank you for taking the time for this interview. As you know there are many people aspiring to become successful in Hollywood. Let’s start this by learning more about you, please tell me about yourself.

HW: You mention that you are originally from Russia,but your exotic look suggest that your DNA is quite unique.

28 HOLLYWOOD WEEKLY

PHOTOS BY: TRAVIS TANNER AND TIM SABATINO

What is your DNA? In other words, where are your parents from? OL: I was born in Russia. My mother is Jewish, and my father is half Russian, half Ukrainian. If I describe myself I would say I am a person that everyone wants to be around with because of my light magnetic charming energy. There is a combination of positivity, innocence and intelligence that makes me a unique artist.


HW: When did you know that you wanted to become an actor? What steps did you take to pursue this dream?

communication ever since. She really is an incredible person.

OL: As early as 13 years of age, I knew acting was my life’s purpose. At the age of sixteen I started taking acting classes with the best Russian coaches in Moscow, and working in the finest Russian theatres where I was practicing Stanislavsky Method of Acting. However my true dream was to become an actress in the US. At the first opportunity I moved to Los Angeles, where I have continued pursuing, and improving my craft.

HW: In speaking with Ms.Lujan, I understand that during a typical casting call everyone generally have the look, and fit the basic description required for the role being cast. So in the brief moments an actor has to impress the casting director you already know they are looking for insight into your capabilities, maybe seeking your range of emotion as an actor.

HW: So you have transplanted to Los Angeles, welcome. What do you like and what have you discovered about the people that you have met living here?

2017 • The House (completed) Casino Waitress • Mac Daddy’s Vegas Adventure (completed) Bertina • Dreams Come True (Short) Danielle •Katarina (Short) Katarina

OL: Los Angeles is my city!!! I felt it even before I came here. I love that Los Angeles is the city of creativity, freedom and art. What I especially like about the people here is their spirit: positive energy and creative vibes! In Los Angeles I have met highly evolved spiritual people who led me to freedom in my spiritual evolution. What I mean is: there is an easy access to spiritual books and the greatest coaches here compare to the city I was born in. In addition to that I feel highly motivated to create wonderful masterpieces due to the welcoming atmosphere in the city: the weather, healthy foods, friendly people, and etc.. HW: You were referred to our magazine by a prominent casting director. I understand that you have a leading role on a new television or film project. series. What series have you previously appeared in that prepared you for your current role?

2016 • Turbulence Beautiful girl at the club • Beyond the Game Jessica • Bosch (TV Series) Oxana - Gone (2016) ... Oxana • Blow Cut (Short) Phoenix (Stripper / Kinky’s Patron #5)

Yes, among others, I was a co-lead in the movie Katarina. I was also in the TV Show Bosch. Every project I have ever performed in had taught me so much about me, and prepared me to next role. When I take any role, I study it for hours or even months, depending on how much time I have. The more I practice being in somebody else shoe: playing life of another person, the more it becomes a part of me. Therefore, the next role, even if my character has a different perspective, in some ways resembles the other character, since we are all human, and the emotions that we are expressing are the same. And of course the more I play, the easier it gets. HW: I mention that a prominent Casting Director referred you, how did you meet Crystal Lujan? OL: I met Crystal when I was auditioning for one of her projects. She liked my professionalism and attitude. We exchanged contact information, and we have been in

OL: When auditioning, I am truly living the part. I enjoy a playful spirit and, therefore, it is NEVER about impressing. Expressing myself and knowing what I am here to do as a character is my primary concern. Again, it is never about being liked by a casting director, but rather about the story!! HW: So tell me, what is the most dangerous thing that you have ever done? OL: I would not use the word dangerous describing my life. I would substitute it for the word exciting. Since I found my path in life and I am following it. So everything that I do is exciting!!!I HW: What about your background, in your opinion, qualifies you to warrant being featured in a major staring role in a feature film, or why do you feel that Hollywood Weekly Magazine should being conducting this interview to tell our readers about you? OL: My varied background experiences abroad, combined with my life coaching as well as writing skills make me unique. Living in Russia for the most part of my life influenced my acting skills. I believe characters are being cast due to a vibrational match to a role. Well, there is a part of me that is always be Russian, and playing Russian and European characters are incredibly easy for me. Learning psychology and self-development influenced my acting skills greatly. Since I believe that an actor is a psychologist in a way. It is never about judging the character, but accepting the inner truth of it. Being a writer has helped me to see the story with the eyes of the director, which really helps me to learn about my character faster. All of the above lend me giving a different outlook to the way I play a role. HW: Please tell me more about your current project. Are there any future projects that are also in the works? OL: Well, I just finished working in two films-Mac Daddy Vegas Adventures, and Katarina. It was one of the most wonderful experiences in my life in this year, since I had an opportunity working with Thomas C Howell, and other incredible actors, and playing a role of a very sophisticated, high class lady with a compelling temperament. I am currently working on a project that I am unable to discuss. I can just say one thing. I am playing an enlightened character with a Cinderella like ending! Thank you very much for wonderful questions.

Being based in Sweden, IMA Content focuses on bringing professional talent from Scandinavia to the international market as well as working locally.

Talent Manager Maria Vascsak is herself a product of dual countries. She is Swedish with Hungarian heritage and speakes the language fluently. Vascsak studied and lived abroad for many many years as well. She has called Paris, Brussels, Monaco, Menlo Park California and Mahway New Jersey home at one time or another.

“IMA CONTENT IS MADE UP OF 100 YEARS OF CREATIVE EXPERIENCE. IMA CONTENT IS REPRESENTED IN STOCKHOLM, LONDON, NEW YORK AND LOS ANGELES”

-Even though Swedish actors and artists really have helped to put Sweden on the map lately – we still live in a pretty small country. I was sure that the international angle would be crucial first and foremost for my incredibly versatile talent, for me and the agency. I also think that the industry is changing; we’re seeing more diversity and inclusion. As a Talent Manager today, I think you need to look at the whole world as your playing field, and not just the country that you’re based in, Maria Vascsak continues. We do it all. Contract negotiations, branding, Visa applications, collaborations with photographers in order to always have someone standing by for various shoots and much more. As a manager, she is also always on top of what the actors might need to improve and change in order to get called in as she sees what’s being cast and submits her talent via the Breakdowns. Maria Vascsak of IMA Content also has some very close and incredibly important relationships with agents in the US. - To some extent, it’s a full-service agency which of course requires a lot of work but at the same time allows me the close relationship with the talent which is crucial for all of this to work. Also, it enables me to customize my services which I think is key for everyone involved.

Our concept is simple and highly effective and IMA Content’s goal is to have continuous growth by bringing specific niche talents to the agency with diversity and international appeal. Through our many years of experience we can and will help them create a platform to leverage their career path to new heights. The rapidly changing media landscape is ripe for new creative solutions, and our intent at IMA Content is to help find them and develop our clients’ ultimate brand identity. IMA Content and Hollywood Weekly Magazine have an amazing collaboration which has solidified over the years. IMA Content was responsible for both the promotional trailer and the trailer that opened the Hollywood Weekly Film Festival last year. This year IMA Content and Vascsak will co-produce the spectacular event. IMA Content, with Talent Manager Maria Vascsak at the helm, has grown substantially over a short period of time. It has proven over and over that the concept of boutique agency, close and particularly personal relationships with the talent, combining production and collaboration within the film industry, is the way of the future. Vascsak, undoubtedly, always seems to be a step ahead…

IMA Content is a modern Scandinavian talent management and production agency with an international roster of actors, directors and storyboard artists. IMA is made up of 100 years of creative experience who together form the most unique content around. IMA is represented in Stockholm, London, New York and Los Angeles.

When Oberon and Titania, the fabulous Las Vegas pop stars appearing in the hotel’s nightclub, have a failing out, the four lovers become involved in Oberon’s scheme for revenge.

On the train, he spots his former Broadway leading lady and muse, Lily Garland, now a Hollywood movie star, and schemes to have her signed to star in his new play and thereby save his career and stay out of jail. But she’s on her way to meet with his competitor, Max Jacobs, to sign up for his play. Written by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and directed by Trace Oakley, it runs August 4 through August 27 at the Pan-Andreas Theatre in Los Angeles.

“WELCOME TO THE WHITE ROOM” we discover Ms. White, Mr. Paine, and Jennings shortly after they have arrived in a completely white room, following their journey within as they attempt to figure out exactly what they are meant to do.

For tickets call 323-856-8611 or visit www.theatreofnote.com.

“ARSENIC AND OLD LACE” Two murderous old ladies, a Theodore Roosevelt impersonator, a Boris Karloff look-alike and a theater critic in love, make an infectiously funny black comedy about two little-old-lady aunts who see killing as an act of charity. Good, macabre fun! Written by Joseph Kesselring, and directed by Elina de Santos, it runs August 19 through October 8 at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles. For tickets call 310-477-2055 Ext. 2 or visit www.OdysseyTheatre.com.

Written by David Harrower, and directed by Jeremy Adrianne Lelliott, it runs August 19 through September 17 at the GTC Burbank in Burbank. For tickets call 571-232-8894 or visit www.blackbirdplay. com.

CONTINUING “THE ANDREWS BROTHERS” A USO show is threatened with cancellation when a certain famous trio of singing

sketches include a liberal journalist working for a right wing news program; an octogenarian stressing about the future of the planet; high-level government leakers in love; and a dry cleaner who might be our next president. Each is stuck in this strange new post-election world we live in. Written and directed by Catherine Butterfield and Ron West, it runs through August 12 at the Atwater Village Theatre in Atwater Village. For tickets call 323-882-6912 or visit www.openfist. org.

“NOCTURNE” In this searingly honest journey, a man unwittingly causes the death of his younger sister in a tragic accident and his life is upended. Wracked with remorse he drifts to New York City and slowly puts the pieces of his shattered existence back together. This is the story of one man’s journey of redemption in a gut wrenching yet hauntingly lyrical meditation on guilt and grief. Written by Adam Rapp, and directed by James Eckhouse and Richard Schiff, it runs through August 13 at the VS Theatre in Los Angeles. For tickets visit www.triptychgroup.org.

“SO LONG BOULDER CITY” Straight from the world of the almost-Best Picture winner LA LA LAND, So Long Boulder City is comedian Jimmy Fowlie’s take on Emma Stone’s one woman showwithin-a-movie that played to a barely-sold house. It’s a tale of determination, ambition, crushed dreams and Hollywood triumphs. Written by Jimmy Fowlie, and directed by Jordan Black, it runs through August 19 at the Celebration Theatre at The Lex in Hollywood. For tickets visit www.celebrationtheatre.com.

“MARLENE” The play is set in Dietrich’s dressing-room at Berlin’s Tatiana Palast Theatre, where she is trying to decide whether she should go through with the recital. Threats have been made on her life by Nazi sympathizers who still resented her for having spent much of WW II entertaining American soldiers on the front lines. Written by Willard Manus, and directed by Judith Rose, it runs through August 27 at the Write Act Repertory @ Brickhouse Theatre in North Hollywood. For tickets call 800-838-3006 or visit www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3034406.

“THE RAINBOW BRIDGE”

At the intersection of real and satire, Jerry struggles to keep moving forward in his life while haunted by the ghosts of his family’s past. This fearless new comedy mercilessly seeks out and pushes any of those psychological hot buttons that aren’t hidden. Written by Ron Nelson, and directed by Michael Myers, it runs through September 17 at the Ruskin Group Theatre in Santa Monica. For tickets call 310-397-3244 or visit www. HOLLYWOOD WEEKLY 39
