Amanda Donohoe is starting to reappear on red carpets and many entertainment observers are hopeful that this a sign that she is returning to acting after what has basically been a two year hiatus. This talented actress was known throughout the entertainment industry in both Hollywood and the United Kingdom for being a very skilled actress which led to her being constantly employed. However, in 2010 she left the UK show “Emmerdale” and basically took a vacation for two years and it seems the break rejuvenated her acting desires.
In 2013 she acted in two roles, a guest appearance on the “Toast of London” and a starring role in the movie “Trafficker” which indicates that she is now being very selective in the acting work she will perform. Thus the inevitable question is whether she will return to a more comprehensive acting schedule or will she act in only one or two projects a year?
Amanda Donohoe is one of the few actresses whose superior acting talent may have forced her to take a break from the profession. She has never wanted for work because of her acting talent but in the process she rarely gave herself a break from working which likely resulted in exhaustion.
The career of Amanda Donohoe is one that should be admired because she has acted in numerous roles and has developed a reputation as an outstanding talent. However, her career should also be noted as a lesson to actresses that one must learn to balance the craft of acting with how one enjoys the opportunities that come with success. Everyone needs to take short vacations from their occupation to recharge the batteries and if that break is not taken eventually an individual may require a longer break to recharge themselves.
