New Delhi:

Hollywood Actor Jessica Biel, who was in 7Th Heaven, is finally “stepping into her own” in small screen with The Sinner.

The 36-year-old actor recently explains her return to small screen, saying she wanted to take control of her career. Jessica returned to TV with The Sinner in 2017 after a 15-year-long hiatus.  

“There wasn't like a driving force behind it. I got on a path of doing films. But, as we all know, the film industry has become very limited. I wanted to take control of my career again, which is what I had in mind when I started this small production company (Iron Ocean Studios). I felt that it was my duty to step into my own..." Jessica was quoted as saying by The Hollywood Reporter.

In the popular show "7th Heaven", the actor played Mary Camden for close to 10 years. Then for 15 long years, she made small appearances on TV. She also starred in films such as A Team, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Total Recall.

"I felt finally confident in my life, as a person … Also, television was changing: It's become such an incredible place where if you have a thought-out, interesting, fresh idea, you have a great opportunity, especially as a woman, to put something on television," she added.

The Sinner will premier on August 1 and the actor feels lucky and proud about being a part of it.

"I'll definitely be involved as a producer. I can't really say much at this point without giving anything away how much I will be involved on-screen -- that's still being developed and looked at. But lucky for me, no matter what I will always be able to be a part of the show and I'm very proud of it," Jessica said.
