Let's put it this way: If Solari's career was a stove, she'd have something on all four burners, as well as in the oven. It's lucky she's so cool (with those ice blue eyes and all), or she'd be burning up at this point.

Long ago, Solari decided that doing things herself was the most efficient way to see her efforts bear fruit. Now, she has so much to work on, that it's hard to comprehend how she manages it all.

Solari has written, produced, starred in, and sometimes directed, no less than seven of her own feature films since 2005. Some of the titles include "True, True, Lie," "The Bliss," and "Hookers, Inc."

"I've always written for the purpose of acting," Solari says. "You know, roles for myself to play. Then I thought, why don't I just produce them myself? Now, I'm getting my films done independently."

This native of Brookline, Mass. graduated from Emerson College in Boston with a degree in Shakespeare. After spending her last semester in L.A. interning for Danny DeVito, she decided to stay on the West Coast and keep putting her dreams into action.

Solari landed her first paid job in the business as an assistant to Tom Cruise.

"I got to learn the studios and what it's like to be a huge superstar," Solari says. "[Cruise] was the best, most giving boss I've ever had. I learned so much."

Working with Cruise allowed her the ability to think large when envisioning her future. She suddenly found herself possessing both the experience and the connections to put these larger ideas into action.

"It was an all-around positive experience," Solari says. "I learned to stay focused, and surround myself with great people."

These days, Solari's currently filming a thriller entitled "Money to Burn," directed by Roger Mende and co-starring Michael Madsen. The film is being shot in both Thailand and India.

Her film, "The Bliss," a comedy about a young rock star trying to make it in L.A., starring Solari, as well as Elisa Donovan and several musical guests, premiered in Los Angeles in October.
