Robin Tunney surprised some of her fans and entertainment observers with her disclosure during an interview that she was 'unsure' about what will be her next role (TV Line - February 18).
This statement would be understandable if she were an actress just hoping to have parts to 'read' for but she is an Award winning lead actress who just completed a sensational seven year run as the lead actress on the popular television show "The Mentalist".
Her comments led some entertainment observers to start speculating about what project she should or will take next and one that has stood out is for her to shock fans as a seductive, complex lead actress who is full of flaws.
She has shown on "The Mentalist" the ability to play the 'good' character and that her acting range is extensive but fans have not seen her in a role where they could not predict the outcome for her or her character. Some entertainment observers are dreaming of seeing her in such a role as they believe it would result in her utilizing her immense acting range which has earned her several awards during her career and is capable of earning her an Oscar nomination.
There also might be another reason about why she does not know what her next role might be and that is because maybe, the pregnancy news that was announced for her character in the final episode of "The Mentalist" is not too far from the truth concerning her own personal situation.
She has not mentioned being pregnant but when one takes into account that she is engaged to interior designer Nicky Marmet, has had her 'own' house on the market for several months and now has her 'first' real break in several years from acting with the conclusion of her television show it would not be a shock if the reason for not known what might be her next on-screen role is because of this 'personal' possibility.
Robin Tunney may not know her 'next' role but she will have many 'acting' options available to her because of her scintillating performance as Teresa Lisbon in "The Mentalist".
