Gillian Jacobs has emerged as the scene stealing sensation of 'Girls' in season four of the hit series and has left some entertainment observers and film insiders stunned with her spectacular performance.
Sometimes an actor will be provided a great role in a limited guest appearance, for example, one season and they will do an admirable job that fans talk about occasionally during the season. Then there are actors like Gillian Jacobs who are few and far between who when they get their hands on a juicy role they 'eat it up as if it's the last role they will ever perform' and leave fans and critics mesmerized and fascinated by how appealing they make the character.
She took on the role of Mimi-Rose Howard, an independent, 'I have my sh*t' together woman and ran away with the show while literally running all over her occasional boyfriend Adam in the show and becoming a woman that female viewers loved for her strong personality.
Her sensational performance has resulted in some entertainment insiders and filmmakers looking at her as someone who would be ideal as a feature character in a dramatic project because of her outstanding ability to find and portrary the different dimensions of a character.
There are very few actresses who can make a female character who makes some of the major (and controversial) decisions that she makes on 'Girls' look so desirable that men, especially fathers, hope that their daughter has some of her 'take control of herself, matter of fact personality' while also being appealing to women viewers of all ages for her 'I'm in charge' attitude.
Her stellar performance on 'Girls' has reaffirmed her status as one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood and showed that she is not just a comedic actress but an actress of superb dramatic talent who is ready to be a leading lady star on the big screen.
