Shay Mitchell seems to have accomplished an objective that takes some actors their entire career career to achieve and that is she has changed the perception of how filmmakers view her.
The attractive Canadian actress is known for her starring role in the hit drama/mystery thriller "Pretty Little Liars" television show that focuses on four girls who work together against an anonymous foe who threatens to reveal their darkest secrets while working to solve the mystery of the murder of their best friend.
However, during her break from the show in 2013 the talented actress did something very unique in that instead of taking on a role as a supporting actress in a big film which she very likely could have done she took a different approach. The talented actress filmed the dramatic movie "Immediately Afterlife" in which she plays a starring role.
The film is about how she and a friend survive the final suicide act of a religious cult and the question of "What If?" that arise once the realize they survived and the conflict concerning the message of the cult. The trailer for the movie was released last year but now the film has been released in its entirety and Shay Mitchell is considered a breakout performer for her impressive dramatic performance as an adult actress.
The dialogue that takes place between her and actress Troian Bellisario is intense and her ability to show the different dimensions of her character has led to some fans and social media entertainment observers viewing her as an actress who could play a challenging, adult dramatic role in the big screen.
Filmmakers will now have the opportunity to see her play a leading role with an adult-oriented script as compared to her likely receiving less screen time and without the same amount of dialogue in a big-budget film.
Shay Mitchell's performance in "Immediately Afterlife" provides her 'leverage' and many anticipate it will lead to some very juicy, substantial movie opportunities in the near future.
