VANCOUVER - It’s official – SLASHER FLICK star
Lee Tomaschefski is too hot for the airwaves!
In SLASHER FLICK, Lee plays Lauren Marshall, the dangerously
obsessive ex-lover of murder mystery ringleader Ben Traimer
(Todd Hann). But it’s her starring role as a naughty
nurse in a TV commercial that has thrust this future superstar
into the international spotlight.
This week, the union representing British Columbia’s
professional nurses demanded that a Vancouver radio station,
CKZZ 95.3 FM, discontinue an immensely popular television
advertisement starring Lee as a seductive nurse with some

in Canada and the United States, but this is not the first
time Lee has found herself in the spotlight.
Before American Idol took to the airwaves, Lee was a finalist

became an audience favorite thanks to her amazing vocal abilities
and spunky attitude.
Lee is also renowned fitness model, and has been a finalist
in the Miss Molson Indy modeling competitions. She’s
also frequently recognized by fans of the rock group Theory
Of A Deadman from her appearances in their music videos.
“Lee is an outstanding and talented performer who brings
a hugely creative dynamic to our film,” said SLASHER
FLICK director Dan Zachary. “In time this girl’s
going to be a huge star, and I’m thrilled that she’s
beginning that journey to the Hollywood A-List with Moviehouse
Pictures. She’s on her way to becoming the next big
thing…and thanks to Lee and her castmates, so is Slasher
