Vanessa is one of life’s natural polymaths: she acts, she dances, she writes and a lot more… And she does it all with great panache and a finely tuned instinct for the viscera, the inner turmoil, the bodily pleasures – and horrors. As a publisher, it was her writing that caught my eye: sheer, gutsy unadorned prose that dives on her subject like a morsel in the eye of a bird of prey….

Many moral crusaders seem driven by hunger for power. Take actor and writer, Vanessa de Largie.

Journalist, The Herald Sun
Vanessa de Largie is a writer with the courage to explore subject matter other writers would choose to defer, deny or dilute. She articulates truths so close to the bone, you feel like you’re in the room with her (sometimes when you’d rather not be). Her work jumps off the page, grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drags you along at breakneck speed, leaving you thrilled, exhausted, exhilarated. You’ll need to talk about it.

Yes, yes, YES! Ohmigod Yes! No sadly I’m not in the middle of a When Harry Met Sally orgasm, but I am screaming in agreement at Vanessa de Largie’s brilliant piece on how women want sex not romance.

Looming large and over this year’s Sexy International Film Festival – despite its myriad other attractions – was the preternatural presence of versatile and local actor Vanessa de Largie. De Largie first came to Cultural Cringe’s notice in local auteur Bill Mousoulis’s extraordinary 2007 vampire film, Nocturne Night Of The Vampire, where her natural ability, unearthly beauty and her sheer presence, like that of an old time Hollywood star complimented gorgeously Mousoulis’s directing style..
