Kelly Reilly was part of the cast of the second season of “True Detective” and while she was not considered one of the headliner names at the start of the season by the time the show reached its final episode her sensational acting and sultry beauty had captivated viewers and made her someone entertainment fans wanted to see more of.
Critics such as Fansided’s Reuben Levine argue that the beautiful English actress was underused in season two of “True Detective” but despite her not receiving the amount of screen time that some fans felt her talent warranted she has emerged as a favourite of viewers of the show. Fans became enamoured of the tough, sultry, redheaded beauty who proved a worthy acting match for Vince Vaughn and became an actress that fans want to know more about (Fanssided - August 19).
Her scene-stealing ability that has made her so popular with viewers of the gritty crime drama is likely a byproduct of her being a stage star in the United Kingdom as she played Desdemona in Kenneth Branaugh’s legendary “Othello” production. Her sensational performance in “True Detective” has entertainment fans researching and looking forward to her upcoming projects such as her role on Broadway opposite Hollywood star Clive Owen in “Old Times" and the 2016 movie "Bastille Day" about an artist and former CIA agent who embark on an anti-terrorist mission in France.
It takes a very talented actress to emerge from the shadows of known Hollywood stars such as Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams in a show designed to revolve around them but Kelly Reilly accomplished this impressive feat. A UK actress who has captured the interest of American television and movie viewers with her beautiful appearance, sensational screen presence and exceptional dramatic acting ability is the talented Kelly Reilly.
