In Bed with Penelope Mitchell

Looks like we have been in bed with all the hot new actors coming home from LA. Our latest ex-pat, Australian actress, Penelope Mitchell who is on The Vampire Diaries, playing Liv Parker is off to Sundance Film Festival for ‘Zipper‘ this month. Read her Q&A, she’s a cack (we all love our Aussie slang)!
