Mt Maunganui former lonelygirl15, Jessica Rose, returns soon to Web-only-TV in a US-made horror-thriller Blood Cell. The show follows Rose’s character, Julia, as she contends with an unseen murderer who will talk to her only via her cellphone. Rose became popular worldwide as the character Bree in fictional vlogs on YouTube, winning a 2007 Webby Award for Best Actress. The LA Times writes: “The lonely girl was by no means alone – she had a team of writers and producers behind her, and though the case was closed on lonelygirl15, the frontier of ‘webisodic’ video was wide open.”
