Beautiful actress Amber Bela Muse has caught the attention of fans and Hollywood executives in 2011. From the moment she landed on the set of ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” she knew that moving to Hollywood was the best decision she ever made. She then landed a role in the exciting film “New Year’s Eve” starring some of the biggest and most famous people in the world, including DeNiro, Pfeifer and Ashton Kutcher. Born in the U.S., but raised around the globe, this American/British actress is extraordinary. She has been a professional actress since age 11 appearing in popular kid shows and TV commercials. As a teenager Bela Muse became a successful recording artist in London and headlined with musicians like Ani Difranco and Amy Winehouse.

Now Muse headlines with silver screen icons, and 2012 is set to be her most successful year ever. I met Amber through famed Hollywood publicist Misty Schwartz, who runs Extreme Public Relations. I’ve worked with Misty for years, and whenever she promotes someone as hard as she has done for Amber, I know that they must be incredible, and after seeing the actress star on “Grey’s Anatomy” and also on “Gossip Girl,” I know she’s headed for greatness. Highlight Hollywood got to speak with the talented and gorgeous actress exclusively over the Christmas holiday. Here is Amber’s first interview with us.


Q-How long have you been an actress?

A-“I started out at 8-years-old doing commercials, kid TV shows and regional theatre. I took a break during my teen years to pursue music as a singer/songwriter and then around 23 I decided to go back to college and study acting which led me to now… So Its hard to say but all together 10 years, I think!”

Q-You guest starred on ABC’s hit medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy.” How exciting was it to land a guest-starring role on the hottest show on ABC?

A-“It was very unexpected and shocking because it was my first L.A. audition! I had only been here for under a month. So I went into the audition just hoping for a call-back and then to hear, I booked it, it was crazy! I loved being at ABC studios everyday for nearly three weeks. It was the best welcome to Hollywood I could have ever dreamed of.”

Q-You also guest-starred on NBC’s “30 Rock” and “Gossip Girl.” What type of roles were they?

A-” only had a bit part on ‘30 Rock’ I think you can see me for all of two seconds but I got to work with Steve Buscemi, so I will never forget it! “Gossip Girl” was a big deal because it was my first guest-starring role with an arch which meant that I was a key character with a pivotal story and a last name! Not just Girl number one.”

Q-You have an extensive stage background as well. Which genre do you prefer, stage, film or TV?

A-“Honestly, I love them all! I would ideally be bouncing back and forth between all genres. I think with theatre you have more freedom to explore and develop a character… Each performance night changes with the next and you can reinvent your intention to get a different reaction from the audience or your partner. But in film and especially television (where time is serious money) you have to think fast and make choices that will stick because sometimes you only get one or two takes and once its recorded and broadcasted there is no going back.”

Q-You attended Yale University and other very prominent schools. Did your parents instill in you the need for education?

A-“Education is a very big deal for my parents but they were also firm believers that the “road of life” was real education too. Which is why I started college a bit later than the average… I had to travel first.”

Q-Wow, you got a role in the film “New Year’s Eve,” what was that like? Robert DeNiro, baby!

A-Laughing, Amber responded, “Yes, I wont lie. Seeing my name on the same credits of DeNiro, Michelle Pfeiffer and so many classic actors made me feel proud. It was unforgettable.”

Q-You traveled around the world growing up, what was that experience like?

A-“It made me very adaptable! I love that I can call many places home.”

FOX News Report:
LOS ANGELES — “Fast Five” has left the competition in the dust with an $83.6 million debut to grab the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Universal Pictures’ fifth movie in “The Fast and the Furious” franchise was by far this year’s biggest opening. Its take was more than double the previous best of $39.2 million for “Rio,” the 20th Century Fox animated hit that slipped to No. 2 with $14.4 million.
The No. 1 movie the two previous weekends, “Rio” raised its total to $103.6 million.

“Fast Five” set a record for best April debut ever, speeding past the $71 million haul of its predecessor, “Fast & Furious,” two years ago.
The movie reteams stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker as outlaw driving aces and adds Dwayne Johnson as a federal agent on their tail. The action expands beyond the franchise’s traditional racing scene into a broad crime romp.

“Summer began April 29,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. “This was all about the right decisions we made, from the concept to the task. How this was made, that it’s not just a car-racing movie, but making it into an action-heist movie. … And the marketing that said, ‘This is not the same. This is new. You’re going to love this, and it’s going to open up a whole new world.”‘
The movie gave Hollywood a huge head-start on the summer season, which begins with next weekend’s debut of the Paramount Pictures superhero saga “Thor.”

Overall revenues totaled $155 million, up a whopping 52 percent from the same weekend last year, when “A Nightmare on Elm Street” was No. 1 with $32.9 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com.

It was the third-straight weekend that receipts climbed, lifting Hollywood out of a prolonged downturn that began last fall. Revenues for 2011 were running 20.5 percent behind last year’s just three weeks ago, but the rebound since then has left Hollywood’s business down just 14.2 percent compared with 2010.
“What a difference three weeks can make,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “We get so gloom-and-doom, and appropriately so, but look how quickly we’re turning this around. And we’re on the cusp of the biggest movie-going season of the year.”
“Fast Five” added $81.4 million overseas to bring its worldwide total to $165 million. “Thor” already has opened in many international markets, pulling in $93 million overseas ahead of its U.S. release.

Domestically, the weekend’s other new wide releases tanked. Disney’s teen romance “Prom” debuted at No. 5 with only $5 million, while the Weinstein Co. animated sequel “Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil” opened at No. 6 with just $4.1 million.
Freestyle Releasing’s horror comedy “Dylan Dog: Dead of Night,” featuring “Superman Returns” star Brandon Routh, debuted far outside the top-10 with a paltry $885,000.

“Dylan Dog” played in narrower release of 875 theaters, averaging $1,011 a cinema, compared with $1,832 in 2,730 theaters for “Prom” and $1,653 in 2,505 cinemas for “Hoodwinked Too.”

“Fast Five” played in 3,644 theaters, averaging a mammoth $22,950 a cinema.
Ten percent, or $8.3 million, of domestic revenues for “Fast Five” came from huge-screen IMAX theaters.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Final figures will be released Monday.
1. “Fast Five,” $83.6 million.
2. “Rio,” $14.4 million.
3. “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family,” $10.1 million.
4. “Water for Elephants,” $9.1 million.
5. “Prom,” $5 million.
6. “Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil,” $4.1 million.
7. “Soul Surfer,” $3.3 million.
8. “Insidious,” $2.7 million.
9. “Hop,” $2.6 million.
10. “Source Code,” $2.5 million.
