When Julie Benz was 15 years old her acting coach told her she would never be an actor as her voice was horrible and she has used that as motivation her entire life. In 2015 she will have the opportunity to remind that teacher how horribly wrong that individual was when she appears in a starring role in the movie "Circle".
"Circle" is a dramatic horror science fiction movie which revolves around the story of fifty strangers being held captive and faced with their imminent executions and they are forced to choose the one person among them who deserves to live.
The fact that Julie Benz is playing a starring role is not a surprise to many as she has proven herself over past several years as an actress who is not only incredibly physically attractive but also one whose dramatic acting range and ability to find different dimensions in a character are far beyond the average actor and are described by some entertainment observers as superb and stupendous.
Julie Benz in an interview admitted to still holding on to that report card from her acting coach and it is this tidbit that has some entertainment observers, producers and directors so intrigued and being able to understand how she is able to provide such memorable performances whether it be on television or movies.
She has become a veritable Hollywood television star with fans still having a special place in their hearts for her spectacular performance on the popular television show "Dexter" and her acting as Mayor Amanda Rosewater on the show "Defiance".
In 2015 she starts off her film appearances with the starring role in "Circle" and will also play a supporting role in the John Travolta movie "Life on the Line" and later on in the year likely be seen in "Havenhurst". Three significant movie projects in one year and her name in discussions for other roles in the future, not bad for an actress who was once deemed an actor with a horrible voice and who should not pursue a career in acting.
Julie Benz has provided a lesson for many young actors to never let anyone deter one from their goals because even the 'so-called' experts make some huge mistakes in their assessment of talent as she has proven throughout her career.
