Cuthbert: I'm no one-trick pony
Elisha Cuthbert looks for variety in her acting roles
Elisha Cuthbert has revealed she's always been keen to reinvent herself as an actress.
The Happy Endings actress, who previously starred in action show 24, got her Hollywood big break in the 2001 made-for-TV movie Lucky Girl, playing a high-school gambling addict.
She told the Calgary Herald: "Your goals change as you get older. I've always been about reinventing myself, just to prove that I'm not a one-trick pony.
"I feel like a real actor is capable of doing all things. Am I doing all things? No. But I try. It's keeping me motivated to keep going. It keeps me interested in what I do for a living. It's a dream."
She added: "Would I have guessed then, when I was much younger, that I'd be doing what I'm doing now? No. To have been on two successful television shows, to be here on our third season, is such a special privilege. There are a lot of actors who would love to be in my shoes. I know that. I'm trying to make the best of it, and trying to put out the best work I possibly can."
TV comedy Happy Endings is now in its third series, with Elisha playing clothing store owner Alex.
"We're lucky we're in our third season, because we're not discovering our characters any more," the Canadian actress said.
"We're there. Hopefully. We feel that if we do that little extra try-this or try-that, it really adds to what it is that we're already doing."
