Personal Quote:

I am actually! I'm very proud to say I am a geek. But I'm kind of a cool geek. I grew up in a very sci-fi home so I've seen a lot of sci-fi movies, from Dune (1984) to Alien (1979), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), *batteries not included (1987)... All these films I go crazy for. But never "Star Trek". See more »

Trivia:

Ranked #37 on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 Women of 2011 list. See more »

Trademark:

Often plays strong, dominant heroines.

Star Sign:

Gemini
