‘Celeb of Tomorrow’, ‘Girl to Watch’, ‘Upcoming Ingenue’; these are labels bandied around in Tinseltown with regularity and one young lady with the innate dynamism of a star is the enticing KELLI BARRETT. Ever since she wowed audiences on off-Broadway in “Rock Of Ages”, it’s been a fruitful progress for her, culminating in a dramatic guest-starring part on “A Gifted Man” with Patrick Wilson recently. In fact, KELLI had previously appeared alongside Patrick as his wife in “The Switch” and he has only glowing words for this lovely brunette. She’s also had supporting roles in “Mr Popper’s Penguins”, “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and played a girl ‘Mr Twilight’ Robert Pattinson tried to pick up at a bar in the drama “Remember Me”. But if I had to point out her most riveting role to date, it has to be when she essayed the feisty yet emotionally torn Dahlia Jessup on “Law & Order:SVU”. As the lover of a wealthy defense contractor, she arranges under-age dalliances for him until things fall apart when he’s accused of rape. Her character was under the all-powerful thumb of a billionaire, a victim of circumstance, the sympathetic side of this woman’s devotion so ably expressed by KELLI…oh how love can be truly blind!
Now if said passion was for the telegenic KELLI, she’s destined to have a mad rush of admirers which will likely raise her profile even higher. Especially since she’s set to bring a saucy mystique to MTV’s new dramedy “I Just Want My Pants Back” as Jane, who happens to tumble into a one-night stand with the show’s leading man. In the wake of the lust at first sight, she leaves him lovelorn and very much pantless, awakening him from the slacker existence to search for the lost pants and of course his dream girl. With those sexy bangs, flirtatious brown eyes, and the requisite range needed to be enthrall viewers, KELLI is in prime position to be a sought after actress.
