For her role as Dixie Lee in the feature film “The Great Charade”, 2019
Daniel Strange: We didn’t think the film could be as dark as they made it, but we also didn’t think it could be as funny as they made it, as well…
Rodeo Strange: …in particular, Candice Palladino, who played one of the antagonists. She has a real, kind of knack for comedic timing. And, it just…it was hilarious. We were just in hysterics on set.
Daniel Strange: Four o’clock in the morning and we could not stop laughing at this one line. And it’s literally about two or three seconds of the film and it took us over an hour and a half to shoot that one little bit because she was so funny.
For her Best Actress Win at the Actors Awards Film Festival for her role as Ashely in “The Getaway”, August 2017
Candice delivers a performance that is strong and which picks up the shifts between the plot changes well. There is a edginess about her which makes her perfect to take on the alien being. A very solid portrayal and one which really underpins the story and gives the film the believability that it needs, as Sci-Fi is a hard genre to pitch well, one has to think this stuff possible. Candice did that for me with shades of the X Files and Twin Peaks in her character’s understated delivery.

For Summer Nights in Space at VAULT Festival, February 2017:
Palladino’s Alien is amusing; although a clueless killer, she interacts with Spartan without endearment yet manages to charm both him and the audience.

Candice brought a spark to her character that was beyond what we could ever have asked for. She was a pleasure to work with, a hard worker and brought a fantastic energy to set. She’s a talent and one would be a fool to let that go to waste. There was no one better to play Lila in the 4Fit Girls webseries.
Deloris Collins (Director), for the 4Fit Girls web series
When we first met Candice, just watching her audition reel, we could see that she had something special. She brings so much energy and emotion into every role she performs. She is able to capture a character beautifully, not only through movement and body language, but also with such subtlety, you can see the character coming to life in her eyes. She is an absolute joy to work with, and a pleasure to have on set. We can advise you with complete sincerity; snap her up quick – she’ll be in Hollywood before you know it.

Candice is a joy to work with: giving, playful, open and always enthusiastic. Her improvisation skills combined with an eye for storytelling makes her an invaluable member of the creative process.

For Slay It With Music at The Space, 2011:
Candice Palladino as the avid tour guide is most competent throughout and delivers a truly show stopping solo “More Than Just a Movie Fan” with true pluck and pizzazz.

…Palladino gave [a] solid performance.

…there are some interesting secondary performances from Candice Palladino as Marcy’s adoring number one fan Rosemarie…

Candice Palladino…as the tour guide…shone in [her] role.
Stephen V., QX magazine
Candice Palladino is a powerhouse performer with brash energy, giving that extra per cent to every fibre of her performance.
Jennifer Reischel, The Stage for the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the RCS) showcase, 2010
…the characters are vivaciously portrayed throughout with outstanding performances from…Candice Palladino…
Georgina Evenden, theatreguidelondon.co.uk, for In Touch at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2010
…the excellent Candice Palladino…as the pregnant Carrie leaves one of the greatest impressions in a key scene as she decides to deal with her pregnancy. With the audience noticeably fidgeting in their seats and giving an ear-piercing scream, Palladino cements her spot as the person the audience is most likely to talk about when the lights come up.
