Kelli Garner is back on the radar screen of filmmakers looking for a leading lady as pictures of her as the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe have been released to begin promoting her new television miniseries "The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe" (Entertainment Weekly - March 26).
A photo of her beside actress Susan Sarandon who plays her troubled mother Gladys, has some entertainment observers very excited at the prospect of this pairing bringing the best out of the talented Kelli Garner.
Susan Sarandon is a renowned acting superstar, an Oscar winner and Kelli Garner is an actress who been receiving praise throughout her acting career for her scene-stealing ability and this pairing has some filmmakers thinking it could result in the ex-"Pan Am" actress providing the memorable, career-changing performance that changes the image of an actress from that of talented thespian to an actress who filmmakers look at as someone who has 'taken hold' of their talent and shows it with a sensational performance.
Part of the reason entertainment insiders and filmmakers are so enthralled about her playing this role is the fact that it can be a 'game changer' for her career in being able to show that she can play such a juicy role of a beautiful, complex, flawed individual such as the legendary Marilyn Monroe and the pictures of her as this iconic actress show that she looks the part and rumours within the entertainment industry suggest that fans will be saying the same about her performance.
Kelli Garner is an actress who is not a 'known' Hollywood acting commodity but that could change in the very near future as she could become one of the acting surprises of 2015 thanks to her portrayal of one of Hollywood's most complex, interesting and revered actresses, Marilyn Monroe.
