According to most of you, last week's contestant Sharni Vinson is a bit too skinny for your tastes. Putting that aside and taking note of the whopping $90 million deals that "The Big Bang Theory" cast members Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco just signed this week, how about we look at a star from one of the shows that's been getting big buzz lately, "The Strain."
I know that I should probably be tuning into "The Strain" considering that I'm usually down for some vampire tales that aren't so modernized and homogenized that they end up sparkling but frankly I've just spent the past few days getting my final fix of "The Killing," which was generously picked up by NetFlix so that the fans could have some closure. That has nothing to do with Mia Maestro, who is the lead female for the Guillermo Del Toro show now airing on FX.
Maestro has a fairly impressive resume of stuff that I've seen but don't remember her in. She was a regular on the "Crusoe" series back in 2008 and spent some time on the cast of "Alias" all the way back in 2004 but I never got into those shows. Her list of films included FRIDA, POSEIDON, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, SAVAGES - all of which I've seen but barely processed her in and more embarrassingly, TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN, which I kind of do recall her from but well, you know.
For a 36-year old, Mia reads much younger, a plus in her occupation and in life. She's really borderline adorable in the majority of pictures of her that you can find on the internet and she rocks a trim frame devoid of any outstanding anomalies. She's piqued my interest in watching "The Strain." I'm voting hot.
What do you think of Mia Maestro?
