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 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.
