Righetti: Mentalist desensitises me
The Mentalist star Amanda Righetti has confessed she sometimes feels desensitised to the disturbing issues of death and grief the show deals with.
Simon Baker stars in the hit US crime drama as mentalist Patrick Jane, who uses his unique insight into the human psyche to help solve crimes, and Amanda plays Special Agent Grace Van Pelt, the newest member of the investigation team.
Amanda said: "It's funny because sometimes we get desensitised to it because we are doing it week in week out, but people who are dealing with these kind of issues, it's really sad, and any kind of support system you can offer I think is great."
The actress also revealed a massive spoiler for the new season of the show - that they will finally catch serial killer Red John, who murdered Jane's wife and daughter.
Amanda said: "Season 6 apparently they're going to catch Red John. Seriously, that's what I heard. I don't know if I'm allowed to tell you. I don't know who he is. But apparently we catch him!"
