Violante Placido is known for her beauty and her outstanding dramatic range in Europe but North America has not had the pleasure of seeing her work on screen in large amounts other than roles in the 2010 movie "The American" and the 2012 movie hit "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance". However, that is about to change as the television show "Transporter: The Series" will be coming to the United States on TNT, seasons 1 and 2 in which she will be a part of the show.
American viewers will come to appreciate her sensational looks and her acting which has been nominated for a David di Donatello Best Actress Award for Gianni Veronesi's 2004 film "Che Ne Sara Di Noi?". The series is based on the immensely popular Transporter movie franchise which starred Jason Statham.
In the television series which will reach US airwaves in the fall of 2014 audiences will see Violante Placido in the role of Catarina Boldieu, a former French intelligence officer who first met Frank, the professional transporter after he had rescued her from captivity in North Africa and now she works for him.
As an actress she is known for unearthing the different dimensions of a character and communicating them in various ways on screen which enables her to connect with the viewer. Entertainment insiders anticipate that once American filmmakers get the opportunity to see her on a regular basis that she will likely become an actress that will want as part of their projects.
Violante Placido combines a sensuality, charm and acting range which often results in her leaving a memorable impression in most of her scenes and thus many expect that will soon become a very popular actress with television viewers in the Untie States.
