Sarah Shahi stole the show at the recent San Diego Comic-Con with her comments while on the panel for "Person of Interest".
The beautiful actress revealed that she has been frequently pitching to the producers of her show the idea of her shaving her head on camera. The show's producer Jonathan Nolan confirmed that she sends him texts of pictures of people with a shaved head from Sarah Shahi and he responds by sending her pictures of Keri Russell's famous hair cut whir she was on Felicity.
It is this 'edgy' personality that makes her character so appealing and for some of the fans of her character it has been an eye-opening revelation that her off-screen personality is not far removed from her character's tough, no-nonsense, personality on the show.
During further questioning Sarah Shahi disclosed that she can reach a 'warped' stage with regard to making her character complex as she would like to maker her character very "dark and damaged with a shaved head and maybe even a robotic arm."
Fans and filmmakers understand that her comments were likely 'half-joking' but what she did show the audience is that she enjoys finding the different dimension of her character and pushing the limits of where a character might reach. She is an actress who is definitely not someone who can be defined as similar to others.
Some actors when at a fan panel situation when answering questions will provide the 'safe' answers but to be a great actor one must go to the areas of the character that are rarely reached and she displayed this willingness while on stage answering questions from fans.
Sarah Shahi is an actress with an 'edge' which now that it is known she possesses has made her even more popular with fans of "Person of Interest".
