Would anyone really remember her or give her more than a moment's thought if she didn't have a large chest?
Yes, yes I would. I've liked her ever since I saw her as Saffron in Our Mrs. Reynolds
, and except for the part where she strips down for Mal, that burlap sack dress she was wearing concealed the epic boobage pretty well. I thought her acting in the episode was great with the transition from submissive bride to stock Whedon female badass, she was gorgeous (her face, not just her body), and I've always had a thing for redheads. Plus, she's fantastic as Joan Holloway on Mad Men
, and I also enjoyed her guest role on Life
, which was a great show.
This is what I first liked about her, not her chest:
