If you’ve been wondering where the legendary Jodie Foster has been in recent years, you’re not alone. It seems like ages ago that Foster was starring in Silence of the Lambs but recently the Academy Award winning actress has been stepping behind the camera in the next phase of her career.
This past year Jodie Foster directed an episode of the hit Netflix show Orange is the New Black but she’s not moving far for her next directing gig. According to a report from Vulture, Foster is currently directing an episode of the show that started it all on Netflix, House of Cards.
Vulture has learned that Foster will direct a season two episode of Netflix’s political thriller House of Cards.
This isn’t Foster’s first foray into the world of directing as Vulture goes on to point out that 25 years ago Foster made her directorial debut with an episode of HBO’s Tales From the Dark Side. Foster has three feature films and what will now be three television credits to her name as director.
Her first major motion picture she directed was Little Man Tate back in 1991 which she followed with Home For the Holidays, a picture she didn’t appear in and solely directed. It wasn’t until 2011’s cult comedy The Beaver that Foster stepped back behind the camera but she seems to be in a groove once again and so far her decisions on what to direct look to only help her gain more traction in the world of directing.
