(Update: Wyni, herself, appreciated this tattoo feature. She provided additional information about what her tattoo says and the artist who provided her with this artwork)
You may have noticed, over the course of this blog’s existence, that I do like to feature lesser known, up and coming actors, actresses and athletes (One only needs to see our support for Miriam Pultro to recognize that). I like to shed light on their efforts to make it big, as well as their love of ink. One actress who fits this mold is Wyndoline Landry, better known as Wyni.
Wyni is probably best known to audiences for her memorable appearance in a DirecTV commercial (back when DirecTV made good commercials, not these creepy ‘no wires’ ones). She was the amusing rebellious daughter in the “Don’t get a Grandson with a Dog Collar” commercial by DirecTV. You can see it here:
Born in New York City, Wyni went west to attend the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Many of her talented performances are available on Youtube and Vimeo, including some hip hop dancing and singing.
Cutting her teeth the way any independent actor or actress does, Wyni has developed and starred in her on web series. It is called G.I.A. (Girls Intelligence Agency), where she and two friends become gold jumpsuit-clad crime fighters. You can watch episodes, see interviews and view photos of G.I.A. at its official website: http://www.gia.glimmertv.com/
In addition to having her own web series, Wyni has been getting cameo/guest roles in higher profile shows. She has been on MTV’s hit “Awkward”, as well as the shows “Switched at Birth” and “Trophy Wife”. She’s paying her dues and I expect we will be hearing a lot more from her in the future.
Wyni does seem to be a fan of tattoos. She does have a cute script tattoo of some meaningful quote on her left forearm. You can see photos of it here. It has three separate lines written in the artist’s handwriting. The artist is Matthew Mattison of The Little Tattoo Shoppe. The lines are: Wyni’s middle name, “Thera; Wild Unmastered One; and Lindomptable.”
Fortunately, she does have some social media presence, courtesy of Instagram. You can find Wyni at http://instagram.com/letoomuch
