Notable for her engaging performances on the theater scene, it’s time TV viewers get a taste of the inviting Tessa Auberjonois. She guest-stars on “I’m Dying Up Here”, the new show which is being celebrated at 2 exclusive SXSW events. The series sees some of the most vulgar characters who were infamous back in the day during the L.A. stand-up comedy scene of the ’70s. Let’s hope we get to see Tessa alongside Academy Award winner Melissa Leo who is the uncouth matriarch during the comic revolution as Goldie Herschlag. Tessa is the daughter of acclaimed daughter of TV actor Rene Auberjonois who starred on “Benson”, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and most prominently “Boston Legal”.
It’s time we get to indulge in the wonders of Tessa who having been a critically acclaimed and versatile stage actress, should be just as cultivated on the small screen. She has been on the hit series “Shameless” which ranks as one of my favorite shows and I’m sure for many others. Tessa played the clinic nurse who gave Cameron Monaghan’s Ian Gallagher lithium and Olanzapine for his paranoia. Someone was quite the naughty girl! She did recently personified extrovert magnetism as Robyn, a pot-smoking, vegan lesbian from the Bronx in the play “The Roommate,” which is a dark comedy about 2 women who drive each other crazy. As the street-smart Robyn, Tessa has been praised for solidly depicting the absorbing contrast as the more worldly room-mate.
We can’t wait to see Tessa blossom on television and film too as she has some projects in the months ahead. Her radiance is indeed palpably attractive.
