Australian actress Stephanie Jacobsen played the role of Eva Benton in the television series "Star-Crossed" and despite the news of the show not being renewed for a second season she left viewers and entertainment insiders very impressed with her performance as a beautiful but ruthless drug executive. Her performance has some insiders looking at her in a different perspective as she played the role so well one would forget unless they visited her social media twitter page that she was playing a character and that is not her in real life.
Entertainment insiders were impressed by her ability to show the different dimensions of her character and how she showed the character's complete personality and not just show one side of the character.
Her last five roles including that on "Star-Crossed" have been on television and she is becoming an actress whom casting agents and television producers seem to have on speed dial for her ability to play villainous characters. However, with her performance in "Star-Crossed" she has attracted the attention of not just television producers but movie filmmakers.
She was last seen on the big screen in the movie "Alex Cross" in which she played the role of Fan Yau Lee and in that movie she played a supporting role. Her next projects may have her playing supporting roles but she has shown through her recent acting performance that she has the talent to be a femme fatale type of character and eventually a leading lady.
Sometimes playing a villain can benefit an actress as it allows her to demonstrate the ability to show multiple dimensions of a character and for Stephanie Jacobsen such an opportunity was presented, she grabbed it and provided a series of performances that have changed how filmmakers look at her.
Stephanie Jacobsen is now an actress who has the potential to be a leading lady/femme fatale as a result of her performance on the now cancelled series "Star-Crossed" and is no longer solely considered a supporting actress for roles.
