Congrats to Michelle! This is wonderful news. The Artemis Awards Gala will take place Thursday, April 26, 2018 at the Ahrya Fine Arts Theater in Beverly Hills.
Artemis Women In Action Film Festival (AWIAFF) is proud to honor Michelle Rodriguez with the Artemis Action Revolutionary Award for not only refusing roles where the characters are the ‘average’ female role, the characters she does play are inspirational and indelible. She is a co-star in three of the most popular action franchises: ‘The Fast and the Furious,’ ‘Avatar,’ and ‘Resident: Evil.’ She has arguably been described as the most iconic actress in the action genre in Hollywood.” Her first starring role was starring as a boxer in “Girlfight” from which she gained critical acclaim. Michelle Rodriguez then went on to “The Fast and the Furious” franchise. She has become synonymous with action films and has starred in some of the most successful movies of the last 17 years.
