Darahgna - A Star Is Born

This is the story of a young and talented YouTube member who has a bright future ahead of her.

Darahgna (real name, Angharad) begins her YouTube profile with, "Rawr I be Angharad. I'm welsh and 15." Anyone who begins their introduction with a Roar is not about to be overlooked! Angharad lives in the Mid Glamorgan area of Wales in the UK. In addition to her video making talent, she also is able to play 3 instruments - bass guitar, viola and piano. Angharad plays the piano in several of her videos, either in the introduction or throughout the movie. She has a lot of friends that appear with her in videos such as Mad Day Out (Dancing in Cyfarthfa park to "Build Me Up Buttercup") and Rough Sex: The Movie (Brogan and Ross rendezvous for some noisy fun). Angharad and three girlfriends have formed an experimental/Emo/Comedy band called Moshing Muckas.

What makes Angharad such an attractive and entertaining YouTube videomaker? It is the endearing combination of Welsh accent, facial expressions and acting ability. Her voice is expressive. She is eloquent in her use of tone and tempo. Her doe-eyed, often smiling face is framed by her longish dark hair and bangs, cut in a style reminiscent of the 1960s. Her acting shows a range of emotions, from silly to slightly sad and serious. Lets have a look at a movie that she calls, "Cooking With Your Favourite Goth". Angharad is in the kitchen, showing us how to make that popular dessert, Bird's Angel Delight.

Angharad made a sequel to that delightful performance and called it, "Cooking With Your Favourite Goth Part 2". The set is the same but this time she looks the Goth part with her black lipstick and heavy black eyeliner. Some commenters had claimed that she didn't appear to be a Goth in the first episode. She explained, "I'm in my PJs of course I'm not going to be plasted in make up and wearing black nightware now? hmm? So your telling me 'goths' everywhere are sleeping in black with thick eyeliner and chains? yer...." No one questioned her Goth credentials in this second video:

Now that we've seen Angharad's angelic and slightly devilish characters, let's watch a movie that shows her playful and cheerful side. This video is her version of "They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard" - "They're Taking The Hobbits To - Cyfarthfa Park?" This video shows Angharad having a fun time with the Moshing Muckas girls but it also displays her video editing talent!

If you don't see the video above, watch it at YouTube.

If you liked that performance, be sure to watch Mad Day Out, filmed the same day. Angharad's last video, so far, is June 6th's "Please Help Angharad". She has been studying for her GCSE's but she took a little time off to make this charity mock-up which shows yet another side of this talented young lady.

If you don't see the video above, watch it at YouTube.

Good luck on your GCSE's, Angharad! We're all looking forward to watching more of your videos!
