I think I might have a new candidate for Choudhury, one who comes closer to how I envision her. It's Janina Gavankar
, who's guest-starring in a Stargate Atlantis
episode in about three weeks (as part of an all-female recon team that also includes Nicole DeBoer!!). The link leads to a blog entry with a ton of photos of her from the Atlantis
shoot. At 27, she's significantly younger than Choudhury, but she's reasonably close to how I envision Jasminder's build and type. (She's 5'7", while Rekha Sharma is only 5'3" or so.) I guess in a few weeks I'll know whether or not she's a good candidate in voice and personality too.
