Sarah Shahi has been away from the set of "Person of Interest" because of her giving birth to twin boys but that does not mean fans are not thinking about her character on the show. Despite her absence her appeal is strong as her colleague "Root" played by Amy Acker continues to pursue her captors with no mercy.
One of the most interesting aspects of Sarah Shahi's character is how popular her character Sameen Shaw, known as 'Shaw' on the show, has become and this was illustrated by the reaction she caused with her social media tweet in which she noted that if Shaw returns she will not be the same type of person as before (Stars News - April 29).
A rumour that entertainment observers are hearing that filmmakers are very impressed by how popular Sarah Shahi has made this character and as such there is a growing belief among some entertainment insiders that the television show "Person of Interest" will have competition concerning her potential return to the show.
Fans are so enthralled by her character and 'Root's' tunnel vision pursuit to find her that some agents feel it might be in the best interest of the ex-"Chicago Fire" actress to leave the show on a high note as one of the most popular actresses in television.
Her performance as 'Shaw' has some casting agents and directors visualizing the fiery actress in a variety of different roles while many television fans of "Person of Interest" are praying that she will return to the show as well.
There is a belief among some entertainment observers that sometimes a show needs to 'miss you' to truly appreciate you and that seems to be the enviable situation that has developed for Sarah Shahi. Her absence has made her an even more in-demand commodity as an actress for the fans of "Person of Interest" and big screen filmmakers interested at the potential of her creating a similar connection with fans in their movie projects.
No one knows whether Sarah Shahi will be returning to "Person of Interest" but her absence has shown that she is an actress who can be a great asset to a small or big screen project and thus she will likely be a much pursued actress by producers whenever she decides she is ready to return to work.
