100. AMI BRUNI
Amy Bruni is a good example of what happens when a hobby, turns into a passion, which in turn becomes a way of life. Like many in the paranormal field, Amy Bruni grew up in a haunted house. Yet, unlike most in that situation, Amy Bruni's family embraced it. Amy Bruni's father was an amateur paranormal investigator and routinely, they would investigate haunted sites. At a young age, Amy Bruni was reading and absorbing everything paranormal related she could get her hands on—and as she grew to adulthood, that didn't change.
Amy Bruni's first investigative job was with a paranormal team in Sacramento, California. And eventually Amy Bruni's lifetime of supernatural knowledge drew the attention of Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson of The Atlantic Paranormal Society and the SCI FI Channel series, "Ghost Hunters." Amy Bruni then began helping them with various TAPS activities and shortly thereafter, she helped form the first ever TAPS satellite team, TAPS West. Since then, Jason and Grant have recruited Amy Bruni to be part of the TAPS home team on the East Coast and now she travels with the show as a core team member.
Most recently, Amy Bruni has been using her connections in the field to conduct important research on the nature of group dynamics in the paranormal, and she's also begun lecturing on ghosts and the supernatural.
Amy Bruni's goal is to work across the paranormal community with the hope that serious field research can occur and then be shared within the society. (Bio From Pop Tower)

97. BIANCA BARNETT
Actress and model Bianca Barnett was born Bianca Evans on the 26 August 1981 in Garland, Texas. During her childhood her parents owned a successful model kit company, Lunar Models, through which she first developed an interest in fantasy, science fiction and horror. Her thirst for film making was also fueled by her father’s video camera, with which Bianca would create and star in her own no-budget amateur movies. This led to an interest in cinema, which prompted the wannabe director to enroll in college but, after realizing that her true passion was in front of the camera, dropped out of film school and moved to Los Angeles. After various modeling opportunities came along, Bianca started her first website, ‘The Perils of Rock and Roll Decadence,’ which quickly gathered a cult following, along with her second site, ‘Bianca’s Boudoir,’ which demonstrated her love with the 1920′s.
Her first acting work came from several collaborations with Silent Ghost Cinema, which resulted in various bizarre short films with fellow struggling actress Ophidia Blackwood, including ‘The Broken Doll Meets Sad Sue’ and ‘The Devil is Always Good for a Drink.’ This led to appearances in various music videos, most notably The Rocketz’s raunchy promo ‘Killing,’ in which Bianca would be credited as a ‘Vampy Burlesque Girl. Bianca’s transition into feature films came from a meeting with independent filmmaker and fellow Texas native, Ramzi Abed, who cast her in the small but crucial role of a corpse in his Black Dahlia feature ‘The Devil’s Muse’. This film not only changed her professional life, but was a pivotal point in her personal life and put her off her path of personal self-destruction.
It was during the making of this movie that the young actress would meet FX artist Jason Barnett , who would not only become her partner but also collaborator on various projects, most notably ‘Albino Farm,’ a creature feature that saw Bianca portray the main antagonist, Pig Bitch. The role required extensive use of prosthetics, something that Bianca had grown accustomed to from her previous work in horror films. She would once again team up with Abed for another movie, ‘In a Spiral State’ portraying the drug addled model, Marlena, as well as a small role in Kevin Carraway’s ‘Fear Chamber’. Bianca and Jason Barnett would once again collaborate on the short film ‘Bunny Time Cupcakes’ for Chiller TV’s ‘Dare 2 Direct 2′ competition, which saw the actress in the dual roles of the curious Lulu and the evil Demon.
Bianca Barnett has several projects in the works, including ‘Terror 66′ (directed by Bobby Blood, drummer of metal band, MERAUDER), ‘Amphibimortis’ (another Barnett & Barnett collaboration, with Jason once again behind the camera) and ‘Blood de Madam: The Fallen Ones,’ which sees legendary horror director Herschell Gordon Lewis (‘Blood Feast’) once again terrifying audiences, which will co-star such scream queens as Felissa (‘Sleepaway Camp’) Rose and Troma regular Debbie Rochon.

94. SHANNON MCDONOUGH
Shannon McDonough began her performance career by taking ballet and tap dance classes from Barbi Lee School of Dance when she was practically still in diapers. Her first role was as a mouse in the annual production of The Nutcracker eventually working her way up to Fritz and, finally, the Mouse King. She got into musical theatre as a freshman in high school and that was, as they say, when she was bitten by the acting bug. She quickly got into plays and theatre classes and, although she was terrible at first (truly terrible), there was no stopping her. High school theatre then turned into community theatre which is where she gained a majority of her experience. Some of her favorite roles include: Corie Bratter (Barefoot in the Park), Mollie Ralston (The Mousetrap), Jacqueline de Severac (Murder on the Nile) and Elvira (Blithe Spirit).
Shannon branched into film during her community theatre days, starting with short student films and finally landing her first role in a feature length film: Julie Ann St. Marie-Jackson in Christopher Mihm's It Came From Another World!, reprising the role recently for a cameo in Mihm's latest creation: Terror From Beneath the Earth. It was a perfect fit since melodrama is one of her favorite genres and she loves the style of the '50's, it was an incredibly fun project to be a part of. Look for it on Netflicks. After It Came From Another World! she was booked for Ric McCloud's Unholy Reunion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYVYrM1v--Y), a horror film which was incredibly bloody and sticky. While working on Unholy, Shannon met Jarrod Crooks, who played her fiance in the film. They decided to team up and create the most kick ass independent action film that would really get people to take notice. And that film would be the currently in production Thieves Like Us, premiering August 22nd in Wausau, WI. The date of the Minneapolis premiere is still TBA. View the trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1546QZhzVs0.
