Rachel Bilson is a new mother and with the 4th season of "Hart of Dixie" already wrapped (completed in October 2014 with her pregnancy included) and no decision made as to whether there will be a fifth season there are some fans and entertainment observers who believe that she should use this time to make a bold move in her movie career.
Her last movie role was in 2013 in "The To Do List" but what she has been known for since 2011 is her starring role as Dr. Zoe Hart on "Hart of Dixie". However, now with her having several months off as a new mother and the life of her television show in 'flux' 2015 represents the ideal time for her to 'pick' and pursue some new movie projects that will allow her to continue her growth as an actress.
The ex-"O.C." actress has developed a 'new' fan base as the interesting and likeable Dr. Zoe Hart on "Hart of Dixie" and during her time on the show proved to filmmakers that she can attract and keep audiences as a lead actress.
She has what some entertainment observers refer to as 'tv drawing credibility' because of her loyal fan following which she can leverage into helping her get a movie role in which a change of 'direction' in terms of characters might be a very good career move.
How can an actress keep herself excited, her fans on their toes and force herself to grow as a performer? By constantly changing the type of projects she works in. As such, her becoming part of projects in which the characters she plays are complex, flawed individuals, maybe a little more 'dark' would not only ensure that she continues to evolve as a dramatic lead actress but it will keep her 'fans' on their toes and attract the attention of filmmakers.
She is in the ideal situation with which she can make a bold, daring move in her career and make the next step which some entertainment observers believe in 2016 could raise her profile as a Hollywood leading lady on the big screen.
Rachel Bilson has not said anything publicly about what direction she wants to take in her career but she is one actress who has options and with her impressive acting range should consider making the move to the big screen with her sights set on showing herself as a serious dramatic actress because she possesses the talent to do so.
