Actress Jordana Brewster recently admitted in a interview that she enjoys playing the 'bad', venomous role of Elena on the television soap opera "Dallas". Actually, enjoy is not an appropriate description, she 'loves' playing the 'bad' girl on "Dallas" as being the good girl can get boring and even lead to an actress becoming typecast. However, this is not a concern for the gorgeous Jordana Brewster because her character 'Elena' is the farthest thing from the character of Mia in the movie "Fast & the Furious" and she plays the part in an outstanding manner.
The role of 'Elena' has in her view and that of many entertainment insiders made her a stronger, more versatile actress with much greater dramatic range and once again shows how a television soap such as "Dallas" with great writing can be a great "training ground" for actors.
Her ability to show the multiple dimensions of Elena as a person and how she has both admirable and undesirable traits and why they have emerged in the character is what has helped make her into one of the most talked about upcoming leading ladies in Hollywood rumour circles.
She is currently in the midst of filming "Fast & Furious 7" and was unable to talk much about the project but entertainment insiders who have had a look at her performance in the movie "North of Hell" where she plays a "scheming little harlot" who causes major problems for a businessman and his wife are raving about her performance.
Jordana Brewster's performances in "Dallas" and "North of Hell" are about to push her into the conversation of elite leading ladies in Hollywood. Sometimes being bad 'on screen' is good for one's acting career.
