Okay, wolverinerpt, you requested for Rhona Mitra to be the next hottie student to take the chair, and so it shall be. After all, it is my duty to appease you schmoes, plus we already graded Emilia Clarke last year around this time, so there weren't very many obvious choices to go with anyway. The babe whom Lara Croft was once modeled after can currently be seen on TNT's post-apocalyptic drama series "The Last Ship", which is just a few episodes into its second season. Rhona will undoubtedly be a fine new addition to our classroom, but the big question still stands: where does she sit on a grand scale of gorgeous actresses? Let's strap on our ogling helmets and find out!
I'm aware that 4th of July weekend may not be the most appropriate time to be inducting a gal from the United Kingdom into our class, instead of some other, all-American girl. However, I think if Uncle Sam came across this British beaut, he'd give her a firm "thumbs up" in place of a stern, pointed finger. Rhona possesses about as much beauty as Lady Liberty herself (but don't tell her I said that). Despite the fact that her name slightly resembles the word "rhino", her luscious lips and seductive eyes would have no expeditionist baffled or confused.
While there's really not much to be said, there's plenty to be admired about Rhona's rump. Specifically in terms of shape, it's astonishingly tone and probably muscular when considering just how ripped Rhona really is (which we'll get into shortly). As is the case with last week's hottie, Alyssa Milano, jeans seem to be Mitra's specialty when it comes to showcasing her backside. Unfortunately, those are probably the times you'll get your best look at this hottie's tailfeather, as she doesn't showcase it that much in photoshoots. Maybe she'll learn, one day.
No qualms for this professor when it comes to this area on Rhona's resumé. After all, you don't get asked to become the real-life model for Lara freakin' Croft unless you can fill out the tight blue shirt that comes with the job, and Rhona had all the prerequisites. I would even think it's safe to say that most of what a large percentage of schmoes know about Mitra lies in this category alone. It's a rack that holds power over even the most powerful. Heck, even the invisible man just had to have a peek.
You can give a drooling stare to the following collage of bikini'd Rhonas and figure out she's a stunner from head to toe. Take a gander at this photo of her ripped abs, and suddenly you'll realize she could end you (preferably in bed). Her name has a history of being mentioned when Hollywood announces a casting call for "strong female leads" like Wonder Woman or (a'doy) Lara Croft, and that's not all just because of her rockin' boobs.
Rhona has been gracing the silver screen with her scorching, fiery hotness for well over a decade-and-a-half. In that time, she's been a part of a lot of dark, gritty films that barely hit the edge of being considered "horror" (DOOMSDAY, HOLLOW MAN, UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS, THE NUMBER 23). This has probably become the genre for which Rhona is most associated, and her new series "The Last Ship" doesn't seem to be stretching too far out of bounds. Some other editions to her filmography include THE LOFT, SKINWALKERS, SHOOTER and "Ali G Indahouse". Unfortunately, she hasn't quite gotten the big break many of her fans had hoped for, but of course, there's always time for that to change. At least we'll always have photos like these...
As a professor of grandeur and integrity, I must admit to having known very little about Mitra before this study began. However, as far as hotties go in general, I think it's safe to say Rhona's got her head on pretty straight. Just like Ashley Greene, her initial aspiration was to become a model, which ultimately led her into an acting career. However, the important thing is how much Rhona lets all the vanity and luxury lifestyle get to her head, which it doesn't even seem to penetrate (yeah, I said it). She seems perfectly aware of who she is and how she's viewed by pervy bloggers on the internet. When asked about whether or not it "scared" her that men fantasize about Lara Croft, her response was "No, because men will fantasize about anything. Compared to sheep or whatever, I think Lara's quite a healthy fantasy." That's a comforting thought for creepazoids like me.
