What she really seems to love is the stage.

To be honest she seems like the type of woman that truly enjoys her work and what she does. Her upbeat attitude and diligence when it comes to her work is kind of inspiring since it takes a lot of talent and a lot of hard work to accomplish the things she’s done. There’s no telling how far she’s going to go but right now Renee is definitely one of the greatest talents in her field and has made it very clear that she’s the kind of actress that sticks around even if people don’t see her all the time. If she’s not focusing on one aspect of her life then she’ll focus on another. It’s a matter of always moving forward and being aware what she can do with what she’s been given and what she’s earned.
Once celebrities start to rise and assume their place in the industry it’s a tentative thing to start with since like anyone they have to find their footing, establish their presence, and then pay their dues as they keep going. Acting is not a simple matter of jumping in and getting to work, it takes time to develop the kind of skills these folks have and to build up the overall confidence that is seen on the faces of so many within the industry. Even then it is never a fully certain thing as actors need to continually stay up on what they’re doing, what projects come next, and what will be available as they move forward.
Renee is definitely where she needs to be at this time, right near the top of her field.
