However, her character is also a mom

Actress Julia Stiles is starring in a new online series called Blue. Her character plays a mom who works as a prostitute to help support her teenage son.

Probably best known for her teen angst movies or Bourne cameos, Julia Stiles is again acting.

And she chose quite the character for her comeback.

The 31-year old actress will play a mother who also is a prostitute in a new online series.

“Stiles stars as Blue, a single mother trying to provide for her son by leading a double life as an escort,” according to Stiles’ publicist. “When a client and her son meet, she's forced to come to terms with her choices.”

Her son in the show is a teen, and based on the trailer, it looks like he is starting to figure out what is going on. Jeanne Tripplehorn headhunts Stiles’ character… as much as a prostitute can be headhunted.

The series also stars David Harbour, Sarah Paulson and Tony Plana.

Stiles starred on different shows on television starting in 1993, but many of us remember seeing her first on 10 Things I Hate About You, as the precocious Kat Stratford. She then took on a few more teen roles before ending up as Nicolette in the Bourne films, opposite Matt Damon.

Stiles’ last character was in 10 episodes of Dexter in 2010.

The Internet Movie Database also lists five other projects, which are slated to come out this year, the first being a movie called Between Us, and a “comedy farce” called It’s a Disaster.

She also will be starring in The Bell Jar this year, a movie based on a book her character was reading in 10 Things I Hate About You.

Stiles has always managed to keep her private life private. She graduated from Columbia University with a degree in English in 2005 but there is little else she has made public.

It looks like this character will have her showing us a lot.

You can watch the series on the WIGS channel on YouTube.
