For the life of me I cannot understand why she was not selected for more high profile movies. She is a wonderful actor, has a great body, beautiful face and fun. I know she was in some grade B movies but she deserved some big rolls.
I agree that she's pretty good (as Polly at least; haven't seen her in anything else), but hot, pretty good actresses are a dime a dozen in Hollywood, and I can see many producers being wary of casting "that Star Trek
sex object" in a prominent role (of which there are rather few for women overall) due to cultural baggage.
Unfortunate, perhaps, but agreeing to be on ENT
probably doomed any chances of A-list stardom on her part. Still, it was more than most get.
