[FILM NEWS] Tracey Birdsall Wins Female Action Performer Of The Year

Actress Tracey Birdsall has walked away with the highly-coveted Female Action Performer Of The Year at AOF Festival for her performance as Sienna in Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter.

Rogue Warrior was a favourite of AOFF – one of the world’s most celebrated independent film festivals – where it cleaned up in many of the categories it was nominated.

Critics ae raving about Birdsall’s performance in Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter suggesting it encompasses “a tenacity and determination evocative of Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.*

One well-respected writer* says Birdsall’s performance might be inspired by other action heroines, but the versatile actress adds a fresh new spin to the lone warrior type.

“Birdsall’s Sienna is a wonderful blend of Furiosa/Mad Max, meets Alice from the Resident Evil films and some Selene from the Underworld franchise, But even with those ingredients. Sienna is Tracey’s role, and she makes it her own being super watchable and likeable as she battles to survive against robots and the harsh landscapes she faces throughout the film.”

Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter is a science fiction film set in the distant future depicting the overthrow of humanity by artificial intelligence on Earth and other worlds.

Starring alongside Birdsall are William Kircher (The Hobbit), Daz Crawford (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Stephen Manley (Star Trek III), and Marilyn Gigliotti (Clerks).

Written and directed by Neil Johnson, Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter is expected to be released early 2017.
