While things are currently heating up for Vincent/Valerie on the show, one of the lucky actresses to have played the seductive and mysterious female part of that eccentric equation is getting very busy. Siena Goines, has just wrapped shooting on a new movie. The sci-fi film, Hunter's Moon, co-stars Devon Sawa and Matthew Lawrence. It follows some young couples as they are hunted across the desert to be used as fodder for alien experiments. In a similar vein, she will also be appearing in the new thriller Jekyll. Based on the classic novella, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, the film offers an updated variation using computers and contemporary science. Goines plays the part of Christy in the tale of human desires gone wild thanks to unbridled science experiments.

These aren't the only films you'll be able to see her in either. The highly in-demand actress recently completed work on three other films that will soon be released and two that are nearing completion for release in the new year. Fans of Siena will be able to catch her showing off the many aspects of her talent over the coming months. Throwing Stars will feature her comedic skills as she graces the screen alongside fellow TV actors Scott Grimes, Jason London and Scott Michael Campbell. The film tells the story of a group of close knit friends whose loyalty is tested on one wild night. She'll display a more serious side for her role as Nadine in the prison drama The Mansfield 12, directed by award-winner Craig Ross Jr. Later on, she will be on screens as the title character in the film Jada, for which she also served as an associate producer. It follows a widowed mother as she struggles to raise her family, keep her faith and keep them all from falling prey to the problems of poverty. Next year you can also find her as Rebecca in the film Divided We Stand. The political drama also stars Jeremy London and follows the clashes and conversations of a war vet, an anti-war activist and a suspected terrorist.

Goines took on the role of Valerie Davis from January until March of this year while Daphne Duplaix Samuel was off on maternity leave. Before that, she appeared on Y&R for two years in the role of Callie Rogers and then went on to a recurring role on Judging Amy before appearing on Charmed and Chicago Hope. Aside from her work on Passions, Goines is best known for the role of Sarah Mason on the CBS' recent apocalypse-themed series Jericho.
