Kaylee DeFer is best known for her role on the popular television series 'Gossip Girl' and last appeared on television on the series 'How I Met Your Mother' in 2013. Since then she has become a new mother to a baby boy and has not been seen or heard of in Hollywood for almost a year and that has some entertainment insiders wondering what type of roles she plans to pursue upon her return to acting?
Usually, when an actor becomes a parent one of two things happen: they either almost remove themselves completely from the world of acting or they become incredibly motivated because they feel the need to provide and this is even if they are married or have a partner. The latter individual looks at their acting as a way to show their child they can be a breadwinner and parent, in this case mother and they literally throw caution to the wind in terms of the roles they take on.
Some entertainment observers in discussing Kaylee DeFer are wondering if she will be the latter mother who dispenses with the 'caution' and takes on some provocative, complex roles upon her return to the Hollywood scene. Her son will be two years old in 2015 and she will have been out of Hollywood for approximately the same amount of time which is not a long time for an established star but for an actress with star potential but not billing that is a very long time.
Will Kaylee DeFer come back a renewed actor motivated to surprise the world with some spectacular performances? There has been no mention of her having any new projects but the fact that she describes herself as an 'actor on hold' and one of her last movies, 'Abducted' showed her as an actress who could thrive in a gritty, challenging' role and has some entertainment observers predicting that when she returns to the small or big screens of Hollywood she is going to surprise many viewers with some impressive acting performances.
Kaylee DeFer might be away from Hollywood but she is still on the radar screen of some Hollywood casting agents and directors and with her new role in life is someone who when (or if) she returns could shock viewers with her acting performances.
