It is tempting to compare the inked provocatrix actress Veronika London with other contemporary bombshells. After all, Maxim magazine boldly christened her “The Megan Fox” of Canada in a sultry photo spread that set hearts and imaginations ablaze. But the Mexican-born beauty, raised in Canada, is charting a course of her own.
Her provocative performances on HBO’s LINGERIE and Showtime’s BODY LANGUAGE garnered her an instant following and put the world on notice that London’s appeal was much more than skin deep – she had acting chops and wasn’t afraid to use them. London’s career has also blossomed into the Spanish-language world in the films MEET MY WATER BUFFALO and the dark comedy short film THE ELUSIVE MAN. The latter garnered several festival awards including the “Action on Film Award” at the Action on Film International Film Festival. London is drawn to character-driven roles that offer what she calls “conflicting rawness.”
Now, London poised for a star-turn performance as the title character in Nadeem Soumah’s gritty feature film SEARCHING FOR ANGELS opposite Vivica A. Fox (KILL BILL, INDEPENDENCE DAY). London plays a heroin- addicted prostitute who is discovered beaten in the street with no memory of her past. Refusing to trade on her looks, London fearlessly sheds the trappings that made her a Canadian sex symbol, and creates a riveting portrait of a young woman at serious risk. The result is a bold Joliesque- performance that is spellbinding in its power and truth.
London was born in Mexico City and raised in Toronto. Currently, she divides her time in Toronto and Los Angeles. Along with acting, London is a popular host, most recently as the host of TORO TV’s Damage Control.
