MVP of the Month: Teresa Palmer

posted by Nell Minow

teresa-palmer-as-tori-frederking-in-take.jpgAustralian actress Teresa Palmer stars in two films out within a couple of weeks of one another. We just saw her as the tough action heroine Number Six in “I am Number Four.” And next week she appears opposite Topher Grace in “Take Me Home Tonight,” a raunchy but sweet tribute to the films of the 1980’s. She was terrific in the under-appreciated “Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” and shows range, talent, charm, and good humor in these two films, giving more dimension to both characters than the script does, and holding her own among the special effects of “Number Four” and the wild antics of “Take Me Home.” Coming next, she appears in next year’s new “Mad Max” film from original director George Miller, co-starring with Nicolas Hoult and Charlize Theron. Sounds great!

    Perhaps better managment would help her get roles in better films. OR – she may have discovered her niche, and will become a key memory for the male 18 to 35 demographic – only to return as a trivia answer in 25 years. I hope she transcends her current casting and becomes an actress worthy of attention.
