(Cbr) On a rainy Friday afternoon at the 2014 Emerald City Comicon, fans crowded the Grand Ballroom of the Seattle Convention Center to express their love of Faith – which, in this case, refers to actress Eliza Dushku’s former character on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” At a panel moderated by another “Buffy” alumnus – actress Clare Kramer (a.k.a. Glory) – Dushku discussed her career, present endeavors and plans for the future. She also took time to answer some questions from the "Faith-ful." One of Dushku’s earliest roles was that of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter in the James Cameron film “True Lies.” She indicated that this was where she discovered her love of “physical” roles. Even though she cracked her ribs while performing the infamous “Harrier Jet Scene,” Dushku realized she enjoyed this type of acting, much to her mother’s dismay. Her big break on “Buffy” came right as she was finishing high school. »

It isn’t news to most of us that some cable networks have a target audience, whether or not we agree that their programming actually serves that target. A case in point is Lifetime, which calls itself “female-focused” though my remote hasn’t landed on the channel in years. I’ve heard good things about Witches of East End but honestly haven’t checked it out just because it’s on that Army Wives network.
That may change, now that Lifetime is testing the waters of dystopia with its pickup of the series The Lottery. I can see how it would be considered female-skewed, given that the premise is a lottery to determine who will serve as surrogates for the 100 embryos still in existence, but I’m intrigued that they’re calling it a “conspiracy thriller.” Okay, Lifetime, you have my attention.
