Anne Dudek played a very important role is Season 4 of House M.D. as Amber, a potential doctor for Dr. House's fellowship, who very manipulative, and yet, when Amber did not get the fellowship, her character "lived on" (shortly) as Wilson's girlfriend, in a role that was still the same character, but showed a new depth to the character and showed Anne Dudek great acting ability.
Hard to believe the this same Anne Dudek is the character who plays the gossip-loving friend and neighbor to January Jones' character on the hit show Mad Men.
The fact that Dudek can play these two very diverse roles with exceptional skill makes me want to see more. I am not asking that Anne's Mad Men role be expanded...the character of Francine Hanson is probably just the right size in the complex and intriguing world of Madmen.
Yet...I want to see more Anne Dudek. I hope her great performances in these two television shows can help open up some more great and complex roles..not just TV guest spots. Casting directors, consider Anne.
