Sarah Thompson (images -- not all of which will be her, as there's a musician with the same name | official Facebook fan site | Twitter)
Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif., according to her Wikipedia profile.
Best Known For: It depends. For many, it might be her recurring role in the final season of the horror drama Angel as Eve, a liaison to the nefarious partners at the Los Angeles demonic law firm of Wolfram and Hart. Others might remember her as sexually precocious and manipulative high school student Dana Poole on David E. Kelley's Boston Legal. She appeared in the well-received HBO original movie Taking Chance, starring Kevin Bacon, and has even traveled abroad for a couple of film roles (to South Africa for sports drama Hansie, to India for the crime drama Raajneeti -- with dialogue mostly in Hindi).

in The Pink Conpiracy.
Amy Adams and Keri Lynn Pratt; presumably some or all had signed up for the scrapped TV series.
Sarah has been a very busy woman.
Humble Beginnings: Her film debut came in Ang Lee's 1997 feel-bad hit The Ice Storm, released a week or so after she turned 18. (I have no idea how big a role she played in it -- Christina Ricci's major part and the small part by Katie Holmes are the only young female roles I remember in it, but I've included it anyway.)
|Shades of Jennifer Garner.|
Why Ye Olde Podcaster Likes Her: It seems Ye Olde Podcaster is not entirely immune to the charms of The Bad Girl. Sarah has played the role to perfection on Angel and Boston Public, and her character in Broken Windows definitely had some of those same tendencies. She shares a certain "girl you wish lived next door" look with fellow crushes Missy Peregrym, Amy Jo Johnson, and Rose Byrne, to name just a couple. (Heck, even Jennifer Garner.)
