Not distressed

Now and again I turn up a photo and go “Who the heck is this?” In this particular instance, this the heck is Canadian actress Serinda Swan, thirty-three, whom I’d seen exactly once before: in the music video for “So Happy” by Theory of a Deadman, back in 2008.

Like she’s at all forgettable.

Serinda Swan as Medusa

The third photo here is Swan as Medusa, from the short-lived Marvel Cinematic Universe series Inhumans, which started out as an IMAX film, playing for two weeks in theaters before moving to ABC-TV, where it lasted eight episodes. I saw none of them, so I pulled up Wikipedia, which describes Medusa as “the wife of Black Bolt and Queen of Attilan, who has the ability to control and move her hair.”

I stared at that statement for a minute or two, then went hunting for video.

At least there weren’t any reptiles involved.

Also up Swan’s way: The Veil, a post-apocalyptic film by Brent Ryan Green, who lives down the road a piece. Shot entirely in Oklahoma, which you gotta admit is a heck of a place for all things post-apocalyptic, it spent a few days on the big screen (except in Brazil, where it was a hit) and then was squoze down to DVD size. The trailer:

Regrettably, her hair doesn’t do a thing in The Veil.

    No reptiles? But I was saving, “I’ve had it with these mumblefumble snakes in your mumblefumble mane!”
