Maya Khabira Rudolph

You don't think "science fiction / fantasy" when you think of multi-talented Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph.
Why not?
Currently appearing in BridesMaids, she hasn't done much genre, but what she's done recently has been either top-billed or featured player!
But perhaps her biggest Fantastic Femme credit was her uncanny ability to impersonate other Fantastic Femmes including Halle Berry, Lucy Liu, Beyonce, Vanessa Hudgens, and Whitney Houston during her tenure on SNL!
Trivia:
One of Maya's closest friends is Gwyneth Paltrow, whom she's known since grade school!
Maya is the daughter of legendary soul singer Minnie Riperton. Her greatest hit, "Lovin' You", was conceived and written by Minnie as a lullaby for baby Maya!

Genre appearances include...
Shrek Forever After / Shrek the Third (Rapunzel)
The Simpsons "Homer of Seville"
Idiocracy (Rita)
Devil's Child (Holly)
Gattica (Delivery Nurse)
