Redhead of the Week Burps On Cue

According to those TV rating meisters, The Famous Author and I aren't the only fans of "24," the action-spy-thriller series featuring Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, rogue U.S. agent. But the biggest reason we like this show is not Kiefer (who sounded a lot like Dick Cheney last night). It's Annie Wersching, the 31-year-old actress playing FBI agent Renee Walker.

Ain't she sweet?

Wersching was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and began her acting career with a guest appearance on the show Star Trek: Enterprise. Guest roles on such shows as Charmed, Killer Instinct, Supernatural and Cold Case got her the job of Amelia Joffe on the ABC Daytime soap opera, General Hospital, just two years ago, and we bet bigger roles are coming. Annie's no bombshell. She's a high-powered rifle slug -- tough, efficient, and focused. But she's all woman.

Guess what she lists as one of her special acting talents?

Burping on cue. Honest. If you don't believe me, click on the headline, Redhead of the Week, and go to Annie's website, where her complete resume' is listed. Near the bottom:

Singing (Soprano w/ lower belt), Face Contortionist, Burp on Cue, Irish Dancing,
Tin Whistle, Tennis, Horseback Riding, Softball, Swimming
DIALECTS: Irish, Standard British, Cockney, Southern, Slavic

It's what we always say around here at The Crimes of Austin Carr. Redheads have special skills.

Thanks to Annie and Wikipedia
