Women of sci-fi and horror are tough, smart, and gorgeous. Yet it takes far more than beauty to win over a sci-fi audience. What make these characters so popular are their charm and their ability to battle evil. Find out what the badass babes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Supernatural are up to lately.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer girls are finding fame and putting smiles on fan’s faces. Alyson Hannigan is a household name on How I Met Your Mother. Sarah Michelle Gellar, now known as Sarah Michelle Prinze, starred in the TV show Ringer. Arguably one of the hottest cast members of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eliza Dushku has kept her acting dance card full. Since her star role in Joss Whedon’s series Dollhouse came to an end, Dushku has been entertaining her fans in multiple TV appearances such as Torchwood, Leap Year, and also enjoy voice-over work. Charisma Carpenter is staying busy with her role as Ann Rebecca Sewell on The Lying Game as well as delighting Supernatural fans with her role opposite James Marsters as Maggie Stark in the Shut Up, Dr. Phil episode.
The ladies of Joss Whedon’s Firefly are hotter than ever. Gina Torres, Morena Baccarin, Summer Glau, Jewel Staite, and Christina Hendricks have all found amazing success since Firefly’s untimely demise. Gina is currently playing Jessica Pearson in the TV show Suits. Morena Baccarin is on the award winning show Homeland. Summer Glau has TV movies in the works as well as playing Skylar on SyFi Channel’s show Alphas. Jewel Staite was just in the hot show The L.A. Complex and is currently working on a new show called State of Syn. Of course, there is Christina Hendricks who stars in AMC’s Mad Men as the smoldering and smart Joan Harris.
The lovely ladies of Supernatural follow an unfortunate trend in meeting their maker far sooner than fans would like. However, actresses Alona Tal, Katie Cassidy, and Lauren Cohan have all kept busy since fans have said good-bye to their characters. Alona Tal is fresh off her role as Katy Bradshaw in Mark Wahlberg’s new movie Broken City. Katie Cassidy has been busy co-starring in the popular movie Monte Carlo and is in the hit show Arrow. Lauren Cohan has become more famous than ever in her role as Maggie Greene on AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead.
Science fiction has served these gorgeous and talented actresses well as they have all moved on to successful adventures. In more ways than one, they’re just as hot as ever.
