So Sci Fi lags behind in terms of having good strong female leads despite an ever growing legion of Female fans to this genre. I mean lets face it if we are watching something that is set in the future it is pretty likely that whatever society it is will be run by women. The reason I say that is because as technology advances and people become more socialist in their views naturally women will take to the front of society and lead forward humankind in a vision of utopian bliss, for 28 days of each month anyways.
So here is my top 5 Sci Fi female stars:
1. Summer Glau (Terminator)
As a terminator you cannot help but fall for her no nonsense charm. If John Connor built robots like this in the future then I for one am just sorry I won't be there to have one as my own personal bodyguard. Whilst this series may not be one of the best Film spin offs ever Summer's acting helps it a long way to credibility. Having had previous sci fi roles she is no stranger to the fanatics at comic cons around the globe!
2. Claudia Black (Farscape)
Claudia again has had multiple roles in Sci fi over the years including an impressive performance in Stargate SG-1. The beauty of her character Aeryn out of Farscape is she starts out with no emotions and is a serious killing machine, slowly turning more and more human the longer she spends with John Chrichton. Great performance from a stunning lady.
3.Zooey Deschanel (Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy)
4. Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica)
Anyone who saw the original knows the confusion at this casting but after watching it all you really do warm to a female lead in this.Katee is now the dream of many a young sci fi fan.
5. Billie Piper (Dr. Who)
Bit of a left field here but Dr Who is now a staple of British and American TV viewing and by far the hottest assistant he has had was Rose. A great performance from someone who started their career as a pop sensation and went on to play the UK's most infamous prostitute.
