Kelly Carlson has basically disappeared from the media spotlight as an actress and I can say that this is not what I expected from this beautiful and talented actress.
Three was a time several years ago that the attractive blonde from Minnesota had become one of the great scene stealers on television with her acting on the very popular television series "Nip/Tuck". She was not the star of the show, that status belonged to Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon but I can almost guarantee that fans of the show and television viewers almost always remembered her presence on screen and it was for way more than just the fact that she is a very attractive woman.
She played Kimber Henry, this 'damaged' character on the show that was so compelling that irrespective of one's views about sexual content her character's actions were often part of the water-cooler meetings that transpired the next day at the office. Kelly Carlson showed a dramatic range and grit in her performance that I rarely seen duplicated on other television shows in 2014, four years after the show ended and it makes one wonder how she was not able to move from there and become a leading lady actress on the small or big screen.
The actress has appeared on several television shows since the end of Nip/Tuck but nothing that has left fans transfixed as they once were with her.
She is an actress who after that hard-hitting drama should have had several movies lined up, comedy or drama so that she could capitalize on her success but yet provide her a 'break' from the intense filming schedule of a series.
Kelly Carlson in 2013 appeared in the movie "Jimmy" so there is 'hope' that she is still acting but she has not been seen in any acting projects in 2014. If a filmmaker wants an actress with dramatic range and who can connect with audiences through her portrayal of a character they might want to make contact with Kelly Carlson because she possessed something that is still rare in Hollywood: the looks of a leading lady and acting talent to match.
