she is working for at the time wants the scar to be seen.

Helsing and she will star in it as Marishka, one of Dracula's brides.

Martin Scorsese, November 2004 release date) and Little Black Book
(director: Nick Hurran, October 15, 2004 release date).
Is there a way anyone may see The
Mallory Effect, the independent film that featured her?
The world premiere of The Mallory Effect occurred at the Slamdance 2002 Film
Festival in Park City, Utah on January 12, 2002. That was the only place it
was ever publicly shown. After the initial world premiere, this independent
film has not been released anywhere else. To this date, it cannot be viewed
or bought anywhere and there has not been a DVD or VHS release either. You
can, however, download the official movie trailer and a couple movie clips
from this web site in our Motion
Has she done anything else other than
modeling and acting?
In early 2002, she formed a rock band named "Darling" with Soleil
and Sofia Alberti, and Nicole Richie (Lionel Richie's daughter). Then as time
went on, another band named "Hollywood 2002" was formed and she
sang (more like spoke) in the band and she also played the violin. The band
concept was only something for fun with her friends and was never to be taken
Has she ever dated another celebrity?
She previously dated and lived with magician David Blaine. She had some public
appearances with him when they were together. Their most notable appearance
together was on the Howard Stern TV/Radio show back in November 2000. They
are no longer together and it is private who she is dating nowadays.
Has she ever done her own official calendar?
For several months, Amazon.com attempted to sell a "Josie Maran 2002
Calendar". However, orders were never filled because the item was extremely
difficult to obtain and distribute. The maker of the item, Landmark Calendars
(Mead), has deemed it out-of-print.
"It's official. Josie will have a calendar for 2003 released this June
(2002) as a special '16-month' edition. There's a small picture of it on page
367 of the April 2002 Previews Catalog, and can [only] be ordered through
it as well. The Previews Catalog is available exclusively at comic book stores
nationwide (USA). Landmark Calendars is putting it out."

The 2003 calendar mentioned above was properly pre-ordered through the Previews
Catalog by many different people throughout the USA. To this day, none of
these people were able to have the calendar shipped. It is unclear why this
calendar was even offered in the first place since it was never shipped out.
Are there any wall posters available
Yes, two were released in the year 2001, the first one titled Red and the
latest one titled Purple. You may view the images of both posters in our Gallery
section. The Mead Corporation produced the Red one, and then Trends International,
Inc. produced the Purple one. They were mostly distributed in Wal*Mart stores
throughout the United States and cost only about $4 US. Nowadays, it is very
difficult to obtain these posters. You could try eBay.com.
