Actress Julie Benz has established herself as a stellar talent in Hollywood but 2014 may be the year that she moves from being known primarily to entertainment insiders and Hollywood filmmakers for her talents to potentially becoming a very recognizable name to fans for her acting and as a leading lady. She is known as strong supporting cast member but rarely has her name been the main name associated with the project but that situation looks as if it is going to change in 2014.
Fans of this talented actress are eagerly awaiting the return of her in the hit science-fiction series "Defiance" as the promotional literature associated with the show indicates that her character, Mayor Amanda Rosewell is someone who is more than just a pretty face and ironically that is indicative of Julie Benz.
She is an actress who when she plays a character finds the different aspects of the character and communicates both their flaws and strengths in such a manner that viewers are able to empathize with the character. It is this ability that has made her a favourite of filmmakers and has resulted in her becoming a leading lady on the big screen in 2014.
Julie Benz started 2014 with a leading role in the French film "Arson Mom" and will next be seen in a lead role in the dramatic movie "Supremacy" which will likely stir many debates about race relations in the United States. This will be followed by another lead role in the movie "Circle" and then in later 2014 she will be seen on the big screen in the movie "Havenhurst" which she is currently filming.
By the end of 2014 she will have been seen in a starring role in 4 movies in addition to being seen on the small screen in a feature role in "Defiance". When an actress is in this type of demand from filmmakers is it an indication that her acting talent is in great demand and that is the greatest compliment one can provide an actress and for Julie Benz, is well-deserved.
