Toronto – August 27, 2012
Toronto actress Raven Adamson stars in Foxfire, her first ever film, making its world premiere this September during the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Set in upstate New York in the 1950s, Foxfire is the story of a group of girls who form their own gang, defying there place in society.
Directed by Palme d’Or winner Laurent Cantent, Foxfire is an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ captivating novel Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang. Raven Adamson stars as Legs, a character who was originally played by a young Angelina Jolie in the 1996 version of this film.
Margaret Sadovsky, better known as Legs, is a strong, self-liberated, incredibly honest young woman known for the unexpected. Raven felt an instant connection with this role as Legs is everything she admires and strives to be.
Attending Wexford Collegiate School of Arts in Toronto has allowed Raven to develop her acting skills and hone her creativity. She kicked off her acting career when she, alongside her other schoolmates, were selected to participate in what they were told would be an Industry Workshop. From there, Raven ended up landing her role as Legs.
When not acting Raven Adamson likes to dance, write, bake, draw, paint and work on her athletics; this multi-talented young lady was captain of her high school basketball team and has been training Shotokan Karate for eight years and now has her second degree brown belt.
Determined to take on even bigger and more challenging roles, Raven Adamson is a young Canadian talent to look out for. With plans for writing and directing, Raven will make her mark on all levels on the national and global film scene.
