'MALEFICENT vs. DAENERYS'
EPISODE SET TO PREMIERE LATER IN JUNE
LOS ANGELES (June 11, 2015) – It's hero versus villain when award-winning actress and star of ABC’s upcoming The Astronaut Wives Club YVONNE STRAHOVSKI (Dexter, 24: Live Another Day) gears up as Game of Thrones’ iconic Daenerys Targaryen, for an all-new episode of Whitney Avalon’s PRINCESS RAP BATTLE.
For the fifth installment, Strahovski goes head-to-head with Whitney Avalon, who appears as the legendary Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty and her own eponymous film, in the mega-hit comedy web series featuring fictional female characters slinging clever insults at each other to hip-hop beats.
"Yvonne makes an incredible Daenerys,” Avalon shares. “Powerful, sexy, and absolutely hilarious. No one's ever seen Khaleesi quite like this!”
Avalon, an established commercial and sitcom actor/singer, created the series and writes, produces, and performs in each one (previously as ‘Belle,’ ‘Snow White,’ ‘Leia,’ and ‘Mary Poppins’) – with co-writer/co-producer/co-director Steve Gossett. The fourth installment ‘Cinderella versus Belle,’ which starred Avalon alongside Emmy Award-winning actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, burned up the internet delivering more than 10 million views in its first month and hitting #1 on YouTube the day after release.
The new episode will premiere in June on Avalon’s YouTube channel (http://youtube.com/whitneyavalon), one of YouTube’s fastest-growing independent channels with over 384,000 subscribers and 87 million views in nine months.
Avalon and Gossett plan to continue the season of rap battles, in addition to creating more of the comedy songs and short films that also populate the channel.
Strahovski, Avalon, and Gossett are all represented by Paradigm. Strahovski is managed by McKeon-Myones and Avalon by Velocity Entertainment Partners.
