Actress Amy Brenneman was recently interviewed by Yahoo TV where she talked about some of her past roles and how she is now playing a woman in her current HBO hit series "Leftovers" who has taken a code of silence and now communicates only by writing and tries to show no emotions.
In her interview the talented actress reveals that she accepts and understands that for many fans what she is known best for is the controversial nude love scene between her Janice Licalsi character and David Caruso's John Kelly in the pilot episode for "NYPD Blue" as it was considered a boundary-pushing event when it was filmed.
However, entertainment observers of 2014 are noting how the attractive actress is stealing scenes as the mute Laurie and leaving fans very impressed with her performance.
Her audition process for the film was very 'unique' in that she did a table read in New York and then the creator of the show, Damon Lindelof asked her to walk around Central Park which they did for two and half hours and they talked about her character's backstory and then he decided to write the character.
The actress admits that some of the major challenges for her on the show are trying to show emotion with her character without speaking and realizing that her movements, her writing are integral parts of her acting.
She admits that the role has been very interesting and some of her social media Twitter fans have contacted her stating that they did not understand what she wrote and then she has to Tweet them back and explain what she has said.
The series "Leftovers" has already been renewed for a second season which is not a surprise because despite her not saying a word Amy Brenneman has used her dramatic acting talent to make a connection with her fans and made them want to know more about her character.
