Michaela Conlin (images | Web site | Twitter)
Hometown: Allentown, Pa., according to her Wikipedia profile. She's of half-Irish, half-Chinese ancestry, according to Wikipedia.
Best Known For: Michaela's biggest role to date is playing forensic artist Angela Montenegro, best friend to Emily Deschanel's quirky Dr. Temperance Brennan on the crime drama Bones, based on a series of novels by real-life forensic pathologist Kathy Reichs. (Angelo is also, oddly enough, the daughter of real-life ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, portrayed on the show as the scariest dad alive.) Film work includes the legal drama The Lincoln Lawyer and a bit role in the comedy Enchanted, which starred fellow crush Amy Adams.

Bones with Emily Deschanel.
Early TV roles include the obligatory Law & Order appearance and a couple of short-lived dramas: The MDs with William Fichtner and Scotsman John Hannah and The DA as an aide to Steven Weber's character. Other film work includes Love, the Hard Way with Adrien Brody and Open Window with The Mentalist's Robin Tunney.
Why Ye Olde Podcaster Likes Her: Besides her obvious physical beauty, Michaela has a good sense of comedic timing and has shown herself to be a versatile player on Bones. As I said above: She's one of the people whose work I most miss since I stopped watching the show.
