A difficult childhood torn between her separated parents, dropping out of college to do what she loves for the rest of her life, and a long stretch of acting life as an extra in various Australian movies — all these things made Teresa Palmer what she is today. Her fortunes did not change when she relocated to Hollywood. Box office failures and audition level rejections followed her. Most of her performances met with mixed reviews, which affected her career graph. Initial rejections and failures at the box office are unbearable for any actor. But Theresa Palmer bounced back from failures and rejections and established her own production company with her pals, Tahyna Tozzi and Nathalie Kelley.
She took intensive training in martial arts and grabbed roles in adventure flicks. At the age of 18, Palmer got nominated for the Australian Film Institute Award for Best Lead Actress for her performance as a high a suicidal high school student in the movie ‘2:37.’ When ‘2:37’ screened at the Cannes Festival, it was received with a standing ovation. Palmer found a name and place with movies — ‘December Boys’ (2007), ‘Bedtime Stories’ (2008), ‘Take Me Home Tonight’ (2011), ‘Warm Bodies’ (2013), ‘Kill Me Three Times’ (2014), ‘Triple 9’ (2016), ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ (2016), and ‘Berlin Syndrome’ (2017).
Her relocation from Australia to Hollywood made a long-lasting impact on her professional and personal life. The cultural shock pushed her to the verge of loneliness and depression, which prompted her to think about returning to Australia. But she was determined to pursue her Hollywood dream. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Teresa Palmer movie and TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Teresa Palmer films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Teresa Palmer movies would be as good as some of her recent ones
