Celebrity Tattoo of the Day (Californication Edition): Addison Timlin

AddisonTimlin_Pic05     Addison Timlin is one of those actresses who managed to make the transition from child star to very revealing adult roles without looking like she was desperately trying to prove she was grown up.  Part that may be attributable to the fact that she took the hard-earned steps in acting, such as a stage performance, rather than being churned out by the child-starlet factories of Disney and Nickelodeon.

AddisonTimlin_Pic07     Addison’s acting passion began at the young age of 9, when she toured in a national production of the beloved musical “Annie”.  She performed every orphan role before securing the title role.  After “Annie”, she performed in “Gypsy” alongside Broadway legend Bernadette Peters.

AddisonTimlin_Pic06     Following her stage career, Addison made her major film debut in the 2005 film “Derailed” alongside Clive Owen and Jennifer Aniston.  She portrays a young girl who is suffering from diabetes whose father’s life if spiraling out of control when he becomes the target of a long scam.  Following that film, Addison was in a few other minor roles on forgettable television shows, like “3 lbs.” and “Cashmere Mafia”, before landing the breakthrough role of a lifetime.

AddisonTimlin_Pic02     In the fourth season of the Showtime smash hit “Californication”, Addison assumes a role that is very much art imitating life, simultaneously.  She portrayed Sasha Bingham, a former sweetheart teen movie star who is making the leap to adult roles by taking the role of the illicit love interest of Hank Moody (David Duchovny) is the movie based on the book about Moody’s scandalous affair with Mia Lewis (Madeline Zima).  While this was shockingly adult for anyone who was familiar with her earlier work, Addison owned that performance.

AddisonTimlin_Pic01     Addison has also managed to carve out a little niche as a love interest in music videos.  The most notable of these was as ‘Juliet’ in the video for the We the Kings song “Check Yes Juliet”.  She portrays the potential love interest of the band’s lead singer (a guy who looks like he hasn’t showered in over two weeks).  She was also in The Shins video for “sleeping lessons”.

AddisonTimlin_Pic04    Addison is currently starring on the television series “Zero Hour”.  She also has several movies in the pipeline.  She will be starring alongside Zac Efron in the upcoming romantic comedy “That Awkward Moment”.  She will also be in current year films such as “Fallen” and “The Town That Dreaded Sundown”.

AddisonTimlin_Pic03     Addison loves tattoos.  She has numerous small script and symbolic tattoos on her body, mostly in the arm and wrist area.  I cannot make out the designs on all of them, but I do have photos of most, if not all of them.  Addison’s most visible tattoo on her left shoulder.  It reads “The Lost One”.
