So, the actress
who played Mezoti
(the Borg little girl) on Star Trek: Voyager
? Apparently played "Girl Student" in Serenity
. Which, if you remember, was also the name of the role played by Demetra Raven, aka Jenny Grimaldi, aka the baseball girl from "Chosen," the Buffy
series finale. What, did Whedon only hire extras for that scene if they had the appropriate geek credentials? (Except not, because the actors playing the other kids don't have anything interesting to be said about them.)
(Also, !Mezoti's IMDB page picture
? Guh, although not exactly subtle. If only there were a way to AU canon enough to get aged-up Naomi/Mezoti. But Naomi's accelerated aging would be a pain in trying to get that to work, not that canon ever really remembered that detail anyway, not to mention that when the relevant subpart of canon ends, they're in opposite quadrants of the galaxy. Maybe one could abandon the pretense altogether and just write Scarlett/Marley RPF. I don't know, at a con or something. Whatever.)
(And Demetra's web site
makes me wince. Just, no. Please, God, no. Jenny Grimaldi would have better sense. And also be too busy fighting vampires and/or playing baseball.)
(Now I really want to buy Scarlett's EP
, because, I don't even know why. I do love one of the reviews, though: "I must say that she isn't well-known here in germany and the place where i live." Yeah, and everywhere else on the planet where people don't have encyclopedia knowledge of
Star Trek: Voyager. Well, either Star Trek
. So pretty much everywhere.)
Rescuing myself from the parentheticals, this reminds me that Mesektet
(aka White Room Girl) from Angel
is the star of the new remake of Fame
, the one that Stacey Shirk
claims "is better" in her song "Ten Dollar Solo"
from Commentary!: The Musical
. (I learned this when both the old and new versions of Fame
showed up in my Netflix suggestions.) And also apparently the Fame
remake "was directed by Kevin Tancharoen
, brother of [Commentary!
] co-creator Maurissa Tancharoen
." Who is in the new season of The Guild.
(My embarassment squick caused me to pause Guild
5x01 about two-thirds of the way through, so I haven't seen it yet. Am sad that the season probably won't have any Venom/Riley content in it, though. Can they get a spin-off? I really just want to watch Michelle Boyd and Teal Sherer play evil bisexual gamers now. Because, yeah, awesome
(And somehow I've landed myself back into the land of the parentheticals. Boo.)
Also I have the vague recollection that Mesektet turned into one of those ubiquitous Disney Channel starlets, and that her older sister dated Sam Winchester?
