Teresa Palmer (images | Web site | Twitter)
Hometown: Adelaide, Australia, according to her Wikipedia profile.
Best Known For: Teresa is a film actress exclusively, thus far. She's done a mixture of comedy and action roles: Take Me Home Tonight and Bedtime Stories in the former category, The Sorcerer's Apprentice and I Am Number Four (also featuring fellow celebrity crush Dianna Agron) in the latter. Upcoming is Warm Bodies, which Wikipedia calls a zombie love story.
(Sweet Buddha on a bicycle, will the zombie fad go the hell away already?)
She's also ambitious, working in a production capacity on a documentary about happiness, according to her IMDB profile.
Humble Beginnings: She's still pretty early in her career. Other roles include the horror films The Grudge 2 (with fellow crush Amber Tamblyn), Wolf Creek, and Restraint, plus the indie dramas 2:37 and December Boys (the latter opposite Daniel Radcliffe).
Why Ye Olde Podcaster Likes Her: She performed admirably as a bad-ass alien warrior in I Am Number Four -- including doing some of her own stunts, apparently -- and was winsome as hell in Take Me Home Tonight. The passing resemblance to Anna Kournikova doesn't hurt matters, either.
