Rachel McAdams stars in the new season of True Detective, which is set to premiere on June 21st. It's important for fans, however, not to expect to see her play one of her typical roles.

"I love that she's not the girlfriend or the wife," Rachel McAdams explains in the June issue of Marie Claire about her character.

McAdams will play a Ventura, California police officer named Ani Bezzerides.

"She doesn't really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people's feelings. She's not trying to be charming, which isn't always the case with a leading lady," Rachel McAdams says.

McAdams is known for playing characters with an abundance of charm.

The first season of True Detective was actually criticized for not featuring more complex female characters. Michelle Monaghan played the most prominent female character--Detective Mary Hart. She was Woody Harrelson's wife.

Rachel McAdams's character investigates a murder in the new season of the show.

Known for films including The Time Traveler's Wife, The Vow, and A Most Wanted Man, Rachel McAdams will once again grace the big screen in Aloha later in May.

Will fans find it difficult to take McAdams seriously in this complex role in True Detective after seeing her in films like these?

Will you be tuning in to catch Rachel McAdams as Officer Ani Bezzerides on True Detective beginning on June 21st?
