Actress Erica Leerhsen is probably one of the best dramatic actresses in the entertainment industry whom the average viewer may be able to recognize her on the television or movie screen but would likely be unable to tell you her name. She is a quiet, unassuming star who is rarely seen on the red carpet but Erica Leerhsen is known as one of the most skilled actresses in the entertainment industry.
In July 2014 Erica Leerhsen will be seen in a starring role in the movie "Magic in the Moonlight", a comedy/drama that was written and directed by Woody Allen. This will be the third film that she will be seen in that is a Woody Allen project and for someone who is so particular about the actors that he works with this is seemingly the equivalent of this renowned director saying that he considers her acting talent to be exceptional. Erica Leerhsen played a supporting role in Woody Allen's 2002 Cannes Film Festival screened movie "Happy Endings" and she also appeared in his romantic comedy film "Anything Else" which was an opening night selection at the Venice International Film Festival.
Erica Leerhsen has throughout her career demonstrated an acting range that enables her to play a variety of characters from those of a scared teen to a lesbian tennis instructor among her many roles but she has not become a household name among fans but among directors and producers within the television and film industry she is an actress whose talent they respect immensely.
Erica Leerhsen's next project after "Magic in the Moonlight" will be the movie "Pacific Standard" and in this project she will both act and executive produce and thus has many entertainment insiders wondering if she is considering moving permanently behind the camera. Let's hope she is just experimenting with executive producing because Erica Leerhsen is an acting talent whose abilities are appreciated by her fans even if she does not receive as much attention as she deserves.
