The Mentalist season 7. Starring Simon Baker

Simon Baker began acting on Australian television during the late 1980s using the name of Simon Denny.

In 1995, he was in an episode of the Australian television (ABC TV) series Naked (episode title: Blindside Breakaway) in the role of a rugby player. He said that it was “the best job I’ve had in my life.”

He relocated to the United States, where he was cast in a small role in L.A. Confidential. However, this role gave him further opportunities in supporting roles in American films.

Thus, he played the male lead in the TV show The Guardian for three seasons beginning in 2001, and also appeared in The Affair of the Necklace.

In 2008, Simon Baker received the lead role of Patrick Jane, a consultant to the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in CBS TV series The Mentalist. Great opportunity! Because in 2009, he was nominated for an Emmy Award for The Mentalist.

In late 2009, Baker was also nominated for his second Golden Globe Award (forThe Mentalist) and his first SAG Award for his work.

On 13 June 2012, Swiss watchmaker Longines introduced Simon Baker as its new Ambassador of Elegance.

“I’ve seen the odd tarot reader and had my palm read in various countries and explained to me in many strains of broken English. Did I believe a word? To be honest, I didn’t understand much, but I loved watching the presentation.” Simon Baker.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
