Actress Jessalyn Gilsig is known for her exceptional beauty and possessing sensational dramatic acting range in playing flawed, vulnerable characters such as that of Gina Russo in the hit television series "Nip/Tuck". However she is currently playing the role of "Siggy" in the hit action drama "Vikings" and she has played the role so well that she has helped the show earn another season as it was recently announced that it will be coming back for a third season.
The talented actress is known for not just her impressive dramatic talent but her beautiful body but for many fans, producers and directors watching her perform in an action drama role has been a pleasant surprise because it is not a role one would generally associate with this blonde beauty. The strength of the character is someone that most fans and entertainment insiders can relate Jessalyn Gilsig with because most of the characters that she plays are strong and deeply flawed but the fact that it is an action drama and she looks very comfortable in the role has casting agents, producers and directors looking at her as someone whom they can add to their action drama projects.
She is also on movie screens and on iTunes in the role of Anna in the movie "Somewhere Slow" and this role also shows her in a departure from the roles she usually plays as her character is very passive, not strong like others and thus is a real challenge for her as she unravels the emotional layers of a romantic relationship with a much younger man that developed after she is fired from her job.
Her acting performance in "Somewhere Slow" is outstanding as it is in "Vikings" and the acting versatility that Jessalyn Gilsig displays in two distinctly different roles is why she is a leading lady who is in demand throughout North America.
