The Possession Movie

Em (Natasha Calis) and Hannah (Madison Davenport) whose parents are divorced and they live with their mother Stephanie (Kyra Sedgwick). The girls spend the weekends with their father Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) the local basketball coach.

One weekend when Em and her father are together; he stops at a yard sale and Em becomes enthralled with a beautiful antique wooden box etched with carvings. She asked her father if she could buy it and he said: ‘Yes.’

Em could not wait to get home and open the box and see if anything was inside. What she did not realize after she opened the beautiful box she would become possessed by an evil spirit. And life would not be the same after this for anyone in her family.

Her father Clyde realizes something is wrong with Em and he becomes so concerned he tells his ex-wife Stephanie. Evidently, Stephanie and her boyfriend Brett (Grant Show) does not consider it serious and becomes tired of hearing about it; so they get a judge to issue a restraining order against Clyde.

And, this horror story only get worse, until Stephanie can no longer deny her daughter Em has a serious problem. But will it be too late to save herself and her daughters from this evil demonic spirit that has possessed her? Will she need exorcism?

We can only find out by seeing The Possession movie and I am going to order mine today.

Kyra Sedgwick is Making Movies

Kyra is staying busy making movies. She has three films ready for 2014: Reach Me, The Road Within and The Big Sky.

She had three films for 2013; so Kyra has been busy enjoying what she loves to do and that is acting.

She is enjoying her family time with her husband Kevin Bacon and their two adult children. Although I am sure she misses certain aspects from her long running TV show: The Closer.

I know her fans still miss her and maybe she will take a break from making films to come back to TV for a great series.

Kyra Sedgwick Hosted the 2013 Culture Project Gala on June 3, 2013

Kyra Sedgwick was host at the 2013 Culture Project Gala on Monday June 3rd as this year it is renaming its Main stage Theatre now known as 45 Bleecker Street as The Lynn Redgrave Theatre.

Lynn Redgrave was one of the most talented ladies to ever walk on stage of any theatre. There are no accolades that can accurately give her justice---she was beyond any words now known in English.

Honorary Chairs for the Gala were---her sister Vanessa Redgrave and her three children. Also, actor Liam Neeson. And, with Kyra as host I know everything went well and everyone had a great time.

It is so good to see my Brenda Leigh even if the Closer is no longer a current show---there are always reruns. I am the rerun Country Girl and I am still watching them over and over.

The same crew on “The Closer” is now on “Major Crimes” and this show is good as well.

Kyra's Movie Up-Dates---The Possession and Kill Your Darlings

Since Kyra completed the Closer series---no grass has grown under her feet. She has completed two movies: The Possession which opened August 31, 2012 and Kill Your Darlings which will open October 17, 2013. And, two in Post-Production.

Now that Kyra is making movies we will get to see her once again on the big screen and I am sure this is just the beginning for her career.

Her fans still miss her on The Closer, but we all wish her well in her future endeavors.

Now, we can still support her by purchasing her Movies. I know I will.

Why is She Leaving The Closer?

I have welcomed Brenda Leigh Johnson into my home each week, with all her family and cohorts, and it has been my greatest pleasure to do so. But now we must say good-bye to her because she's not returning for another season.

But why is Kyra leaving? Is it because she's tired and needed to rest? Or does she have something else in her future that is more appealing to her after so many seasons of The Closer?

And I do hope she has something great waiting for her, after all she is an artist, and may need to spread her artistic wings, and fly into another enticing career.

Whatever, it is, I wish her well, and I am going to miss seeing her, and her southern parents. Her character was great and she played it well. Being from the South, I will give her an "A" on her accent, B on the attitude, and C on thinking of others first, and I am speaking of Brenda Leigh Johnson, her character.

I enjoyed watching her solve the unsolvable crimes, and in her own charming way, of taking people off guard, which led them to saying too much---then she had them---. Like a sweet charming snake she would strike when the criminal least expected it.

Yes, she was great, and I wish her well in her future endeavors, and many will miss her.

Now, I think I will truly cry if Fritz, played by Jon Tenney leaves. Or Detective Sanchez played by Raymond Cruz because they are both eye candy---WOW!

And I cannot leave without saying that Tony Denison and G.W. Bailey are two of my favorites because they inflected the show with their experience as being detectives flavored with their wit and sweetness. (Like a modern Sheriff Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife—so cute.)

Brenda Leigh is Not Ready to Make Nice

This video shows some of my favorite moments with Brenda Leigh---in her job strengths and communication skills in business and on a personal level.

She is a powerhouse of a woman who no one pushes her around. I will miss her. And, I

will continue to watch the spin-off---Major Crimes, which will begin on Monday, August 13th.

Also, I will collect her DVDs of all seven seasons.

Bitter Sweet Goodbyes

This is the last episode of The Closer, and as a faithful fan---it is bittersweet.

I will miss Brenda Leigh and her southern accent and charm.

I will always remember Brenda Leigh and her Kitty.

The Kitty she did not want to become attached to and in the end she fell in love with Kitty. She even took her ashes to work with her, and if you missed that episode, you might want to buy the DVDs. I know I am seriously thinking about doing it.

New Up-date on Kyra Sedgwick

Kyra will be back in the summer of 2012 to star in six more episodes in The Closer’s final seventh season. Then, I hope all the actors will be back to star in the spin-off series of “Major Crimes” which will take the place of The Closer.

Mary McDonnell will continue as Captain Sharon Raydor, leading the great cast who was the force of The Closer into the new Major Crimes Series. The new series will be back in the winter, November 28, 2012, returning on Mondays at 9:00 pm--- on TNT.

I am hoping that all the actors from The Closer, will be in the new series because they were all great.

And now we (The Fans) will wait to see the last of The Closer, and welcome in the new series, Major Crimes.

I will miss Kyra as Brenda, as she really brought that character to life.

Brenda Leigh's "Thank You---Thank You So Much"

All her fans in TV Land will never forget Brenda's famous southern way of saying "Thank you---Thank you So Much." And if you are a woman you know it does not always mean the words you hear.

Since good manners prevent one from saying:

Thank you for:

  • being so stupid.
  • being an ass
  • being so rude
  • giving your unsolicited opinion
  • your unkind remarks behind my back

And so on, and if you are one of her biggest fans---you will enjoy the video

of her "Thank You's" as she shines in all her southern glory.

The Last Word

All the men in Brenda Leigh's unit were quiet as she read her good-bye letter to them. Brenda had tears in her eyes and her men looked like they might cry any minute.

Fritz came for Brenda moving boxes and told everyone if you need to get in touch with Brenda will you need to do it through the FBI---he was referring to himself.

It is very sad when such a great show will no longer be on the air and it will never be the same even with the spin-off to Major Crimes.

I wish Major Crimes the very best of luck---without Brenda they will need all the luck they can get.

So good-bye for now---and who knows Major Crimes could have a neighbor by the name of Brenda Leigh.

Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon are Married with  Two Grown Children
Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon are Married with Two Grown Children

Updated News on Kyra Sedgwick 01/31/2012

Kyra and her husband Kevin Bacon has been married for 23 years, and have two adult children.Their family seems very close, and to show just how close their bond is--- Kyra had a "Family Tattoo" inked on her rib-cage. The tattoo consists of all their initials--K, K, S and T, is for Kevin, Kyra, Sosie and Travis. However, I think it is so cute and unique for a family to share a tattoo. I am not sure at this writing if Kevin, and the children got one or not.

Just think in the future all humans may have a family tattoo to prove their bloodline. It is something to think about, or---- maybe not.

And if the family unit could extend to the family pets, with everyone, getting a tattoo.

Closer Premieres July 9th @ 9/8c

The latest news is The Closer will Premiere July 9th at 9/8c, for the final six episodes. This will be your last chance to watch Brenda Leigh with her support unit of excellent actors.

I cannot help but ponder if Brenda Leigh will be sad because her part in The Closer will be over, and there will be no more Brenda Leigh.

I believe she will leave with the reason to visit her ill father, and then she will just stay, thus the show ends.

But then Major Crimes will be on and then we will get attached to that show as well.

I believe the fans of The Closer will live a long time, remembering the show. After all we can buy the DVD's if we get too lonesome. So mark you calendars for The Closer Premieres July 9th at 9/8c on Monday Night.

I have marked my calendar and as of today---it is eleven (11) more days until Brenda Leigh will be on my screen in my home once more for six more episodes.

I will have mixed emotions as I feel I am losing a good friend who has been with me for years. But she is going to do some great movies and enjoy her life with her handsome husband and for this reason I am happy.

    Hi and it is always a delight to see your sweet face. And I can relate, because I am still mad the way Sandra Bullock was treated---and I would like ten minutes with her X-husband. But I will have to rise above it and think of something good---like chocolate or Johnny Depp---I am terrible today.

    I am going to miss Brenda and her Kitty---did you see the show where she take Kitty's ashes to work in a zip-lock bag---I believe I am remembering it correctly. I will miss her.

    Thanks you for your visit,

    Your Hub Friend,

    Bobbi.... I think my husband is secretly in love with Brenda.......he tells me he likes her because she's a "kick A$$" woman like me. HA! Does he think I'll fall for that one?? Nice try anyway!!

    I love Kevin and Kyra as a sweet and loving couple. I've always said, if they ever break up, I will lose what little faith I have in Hollywood couples......I'm still trying to get over Seal & Heidi.......That break-up knocked me for a loop.

    You'd think we're actually family or friends of these celebrities the way we react to their stories!!!! LOL....

    The Closer is a great series, but there comes a time when they all come to a "Close."....No pun intended! UP+++

    Hi Sunshine,

    I am so happy to see you---I was just talking about you to my sister. I was telling her about your award and how helpful and sweet you are to me and everyone. And how amazed I am at all you do to keep everyone interested in writing, sharing and communicating with other Hubbers.

    She said--- there are Earth Angels still on this earth with us---I really feel it. And she is a grandmother too.

    I really like watching Krya on The Closer---and I hope I will like her in the movies she will be making.

    I hope all is well with you and yours.

    Your Hub Friend,

    Hi Jools99,

    I believe you will really enjoy it. There is never a dull moment, and the men in the group are honorable, funny and are constantly driving Brenda crazy.

    The first few shows are very funny when the guys mock Brenda's Southern accent. I thought it was funny and I have a Southern accent, and I was not insulted.

    Enjoy what you like in life---this is our time to spoil ourseleves.

    Your Hub Friend,

    Bobbi, I rather liked Kyra as Brenda. I loved her whole demeanour and chutzpah but I only watched a couple of series cos hubby wasn't fussed on the show. You have convinced me to seek it out in re-runs on satellite TV - I can watch it on my own :o) Voted up and shared.

    I watched the Closer a few times. I'm not addicted to the show, but I'm a fan of Kyra's hubby Kevin Bacon! Nice couple who have been together for many years. Best of luck to them.

    I love this show so much and am so sad to see it go but I really didn't know how talented Kyra Sedgwick was until this show. It really shouldn't be a surprise since Kevin Bacon is such a great actor. Maybe they'll do something together after this. Anyways, great hub and I'm definitely looking forward to Captain Raydor's new series in the fall.

    Hi Cleaner3,

    Yes, this is one of my favorites, and I will miss Brenda.

    But it will be replaced with the same good support group.

    Have you seen Covert Affairs on USA? That is really good also. Have a great day.
