From YouTube.com

The woman who has been posting insanely popular video blogs on YouTube under the handle Lonelygirl15 has been exposed as an actress working with a film crew in what appears to be the early serialized version of a movie.

A fascinating sleuthing story here.


N.Y. Times:

A nearly four-month-old Internet drama in which the cryptic video musings of a fresh-faced teenager became the obsession of millions of devotees ? themselves divided over the very authenticity of the videos, or who was behind them or why ? appears to be in its final act.

The woman who plays Lonelygirl15 on the video-sharing site YouTube.com has been identified as Jessica Rose, a 20-ish resident of New Zealand and Los Angeles and a graduate of the New York Film Academy. And the whole project appears to be the early serialized version of what eventually will become a movie.

Matt Foremski, the 18-year-old son of Tom Foremski, a reporter for the blog Silicon Valley Watcher, was the first to disinter a trove of photographs of the familiar-looking actress, who portrayed the character named Bree in the videos. The episodes suggested Bree was the home-schooled daughter of strictly religious parents who was able to find the time to upload video blogs of her innermost thoughts.
