In the roll-call of Irish-American screen-stars, Robin Tunney always seems to get overlooked. Which is strange, because the Chicago native has spent the past two decades making major movies, earning critical plaudits and starring in some of the biggest TV shows.
You mightn’t recognize the name immediately but almost certainly know the actress: she’s played opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ben Affleck, appeared in a bunch of cult 1990s films and spent two seasons trying to bust the boys from jail in “Prison Break“. And for the last three-and-a-half years Ms Tunney has played Agent Teresa Lisbon in the smash-hit drama “The Mentalist“, currently airing on RTÉ1.
The woman is a star – and one of our own. She’s also smart, thoughtful and drolly funny in conversation. On the phone from LA, Tunney explains her connection to Ireland:
“I had quite an ‘Irish’ upbringing – a lot of my parents’ identity is wrapped up in it. My father was born in Straide, Co Mayo. My mother is first generation – both her parents were from Clare Island. My other grandmother lived in Galway until she died, about 12 years ago.”
Young Hollywood hangs out with “The Mentalist” star, Robin Tunney, immediately after the big premiere of her movie “See Girl Run“! Despite her nerves, the gorgeous actress manages to remain fresh-faced and radiant as she talks about the movie, reminisces about her childhood, and reveals that she can spot what movies her fans love by their wardrobe! She also dishes on getting her dog into the biz and what it’s like constantly surrounded by hunky actors! Hosted by Nikki Novak. Check out the interview below!
This year “Incognito“, SMMoA‘s popular art sale, offered 697 artworks – all donated by emerging, mid-career and internationally acclaimed artists – for sale at $350 each. Of course, names were hidden until after purchase. which meant buyers had to trust their instincts and choose accordingly.
Robin attended this event together with Nicky Marmet yesterday. Her “The Mentalist” co-star Simon Baker also attended.
I added 1 MQ picture to the gallery.
As the title says, there’s been a huge gallery update. I managed to upload about 200 new pictures to the image archive the last week. I mostly added “The Mentalist” episode stills that have been missing. You can find an entire list of the episodes from season one including short synopses here. I’m going to update the gallery with the other seasons, photoshoots, candids etc.
It’s no secret that the Sundance Film Festival has become a bit more mainstream over the past few years. When it comes to the defining moment when celebrities seemed to realize that the festival was more about promotion than it was filmmaking seems to universally be the year that one company was handing out free washing machines. It seems as though celebrities and filmmakers are flocking to South by Southwest in Austin so much because it is a less commercialized alternative to Sundance.
IFC caught up with “See Girl Run” actress Robin Tunney during SXSW, and she admitted that she’s seen a definite change in Sundance over the many years she has attended it.
“I’ve been going to Sundance for so many years, like 15 years, and I think it’s more like what that was when it started before like Paris Hilton came down on it and started getting free washing machines. I was offered a free washing machine at Sundance! They’re like, ‘Will you sit on a washing machine to get a free washing machine?’”
And that’s not the only instance of weird freebies Robin has had to deal with.
“I think there was one time that someone asked me to pose with their cookie and they said they’d give me a cookie. You end up with this enormous garbage bag filled with like underpants, like really bizarre promotional things, and there’s really horrible pictures of you on the internet wearing free sunglasses in 1996.”
Since the world premiere of “See Girl Run” on March 11, 2012m during the SXSW 2012 in Austin, Texas, there’ve been some movie reviews posted on the internet. Here’s an example from the Hollywood Reporter.
AUSTIN – A sensitive, no-cop-outs film about relationships and moments of truth both genuine and manufactured, Nate Meyer’s See Girl Run should earn much more attention than the director’s debut, Pretty in the Face (itself a SXSW alum). The presence of Parks and Rec charmer Adam Scott increases commercial appeal, though marketers will have to keep audiences from assuming the gently introspective Girl is a comedy. [...]
See Girl Run is a bit thin compared to an ensemble film like Beautiful Girls, which explored similar themes in another setting heavy on local color. But it works well given its scale, leaving viewers moved but not manipulated — and taking pains not to construct another fantasy about love that will endanger viewers’ ability to navigate the actual relationships life brings them.
