Rosmanund Pike's last appearance on the big screens of Hollywood left fans transfixed as Amy Dunne, the beautiful, strong, manipulative wife of Nick Dunne, played by Ben Affleck in the critically acclaimed movie 'Gone Girl'.
In 2015 she will be 'heard' as the voice of Lady Penelope in the ITV remake of the children's classic "Thunderbirds are Go!" and she revealed in interviews that it was very easy for her to agree to play the role in which she gets to voice the character and have the opportunity to work with two of the original cast members, David Graham, the voice of her driver Parker and the 'first' Lady Penelope, Sylvia Anderson.
Some people might have questioned her taking on this role after her superb performance in 'Gone Girl', especially since no one will actually see her on screen and only hear her voice, but some entertainment observers consider the decision to take on the role as a brilliant career move.
The role of Lady Penelope prevents the public from seeing 'too much of the beautiful Academy Award nominated actress. It has been almost a year since the release of 'Gone Girl' and it is still one of the most talked about movies and thus the potential for fans becoming 'tired' of hearing about her in the same role is a very real possibility.
However, such a situation is unlikely to occur with this English actress because of her shrewd film schedule as fans will 'only' have two opportunities in 2015 to enjoy her acting and only one in which she will actually be seen on screen. Movie viewers will get to hear her play the character Lady Penelope in "Thunderbirds are Go!" which will bring much laughter and excitement for viewers of all ages and they will have the opportunity to be scared and mesmerized by her in the thriller 'Return to Sender', her only big screen project of 2015!
There are many benefits to her not being part of too many projects but one of the most important is that she does not get overworked and thus will have the energy to provide superb performances in her various roles. Moreover, with fewer films movie viewers will have a greater appreciation for her mesmerizing acting performances and instead of potentially becoming tired of this impressive actress they will be wanting for more of her.
Rosamund Pike has become one of the elite lead actresses of her generation and her film schedule suggests that she plans to remain part of that group if not the leader of it for a very long time.
