Anna Hopkins Is Awesome

Anna Hopkins is a Sci-Fi queen, how else would you describe someone who has managed to appear in Shadowhunters, The Expanse, Defiance and Dark Matter.


That is leaving out her recurring stint in CW’s Arrow which is more superhero than Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Her biggest role of those was probably recurring on Defiance the massive transmedia project from Syfy that had an mmo shooter game as part of its shared universe.

If you’ve missed out on Stranger Things you should rectify that quickly, the way it tells a story if so demonstrably different from 3/4 of all scripted TV.

First saw her on MTV’s Awkward which is just full of gorgeous and talented women but a little hard to watch at times.

Emeraude Toubia Is Elegant

And that is not just about that rather cool name of hers. If you’re not watching Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments in which she stars I can’t recommend it highly enough. It is a huge step forward in the teen supernatural stable of storytelling. The actors are all solid and the show is engaging and this comes from someone who didn’t read the books, though I did read “The Infernal Devices”. Go check her out in this show she’s magnetic. Let’s check out some photos below.

Stephanie Bennett Is Stunning

Stephanie Bennett is a Canadian actress who manages to move chameleon like from role to role. I was watching The Julius  House РAurora Teagarden, an adaption of one of my favourite murder mystery books and went on to IMDB to see who this stunning actress was.
