Who doesn't love it when the ladies come out on top? I certainly know fanboys appreciate the women who traffic in the realm of Science Fiction, and -- so far as birthdays go -- it's usually the guys who rack up multiple appearances; so it's nice to see a bevy of lovely ladies coming in to rule the day. Be sure to check them out below.
Kim Cattrall did a pretty impressive job stepping into the Trek franchise as Valeris, a Spock protege who served as his 'foil' in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Fans embraced the character, likening her back to The Wrath of Khan's even more popular Saavik. Unfortunately, the character was pretty much a one-off creation, and, so far as this Trek fan knows, we've never heard from her since. Ms. Cattrall was born on this day back in 1956.
Who knew Carrie-Anne Moss could look so good under all of that black patent leather? Apparently, the creators of The Matrix did, and they cast her as Neo's kinda/sorta mentor, partner, co-conspirator, and lover in their hugely successful franchise. Hats off to them for making such a wonderful choice. Moss was born on this day back in 1967.
It may sound a bit sexist, but when you look as luscious as Laura Haddock does you're going to find work in Hollywood and beyond. So it's a huge plus that she's got actual acting chops! She continues to amaze on the Starz Network hit Davinci's Demons (great program), and she's had small roles in both Captain America: The First Avenger as well as Guardians of the Galaxy. Haddock was born on this day in 1985 ... just more proof of how the 80's rule!
If you've been watching Falling Skies since it began, then you've been able to watch the young Maxim Knight grow into quite the talented li'l Thespian. He plays Matt Mason, part of a family resisting the tide of an alien invasion hell bent on wiping out mankind. Knight was born on this day in 1999.
