Freema Agyeman

Going from Doctor Who to Dickens and back again was a snap for award-winning actress Freema Agyeman.
She started on the British soap opera CrossRoads, movied on to guest-star roles on prime-time series, and landed the role of the Tenth Doctor Who's companion (after guest starring as another character) all within a four-year span!
Talk about meteoric!
In addition, she appeared in the acclaimed BBC production of Charles Dickens' Little Doritt (as Tattycoram) and a remake of the 1970s post-apocalyptic tv series Survivors!
She's also done Doctor Who and Torchwood audiobooks and animation voice work (on Doctor Who: The Infinite Quest).
Currently, she's starring as Crown Prosecutor / Solictor Advocate Alesha Phillips (equivalent to an American assistant district attorney) on Law & Order: UK. but it's a fair bet she'll show up somewhere in the Whoverse before too long...
Trivia: Freema is a spokesperson for Divine Chocolate, an ethical corporation that helps Ghanaian cocoa farmers make a fair living.
Genre appearances include...
Law & Order: UK
(Crown Prosecutor and Solicitor Advocate Alesha Phillips)
Survivors [2008] (Jenny Walsh)
Bizarre ER (Narrator)
Doctor Who / Torchwood / Infinite Quest
(Dr Martha Jones-Smith / Adeola Oshodi [Martha's cousin])
The Bill (Shakira Washington)
Silent Witness (Mary Odgen)

Vampirella LIVES!

Before Twilight!
Before True Blood!
Before Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
Before Blade!
There was…Vampirella!

Dynamite Entertainment (Project SuperPowers, Green Hornet) has acquired the Vampirella property from Harris Publications.

Vampirella debuted in 1969 in a black & white magazine titled simply Vampirella.
Initially, she was just the hostess of various horror stories, much like EC's Crypt Keeper or DC's Cain and Abel, but much cuter!
In Vampirella #9, the character received her own strip, with the first tale being (what else?) her origin story!
 
Vampirella has been around since then in both b/w and color comics form from Warren and then Harris Publications, remaining one of the most popular female and/or vampire characters in comics!
In addition, there was a series of paperback novels by Ron Goulart, adapting the comics storylines into prose!
There was even a Vampirella feature film starring Talisa Soto as the Draculonian, now available on dvd.

We wish her a long and prosperous un-life at Dynamite!
