Redhead of the Week Calls Badlands Home

Though still a little shaky in high heels -- at least stomping through futuristic wastelands -- actress Emily Beecham is fast becoming a triple-A-list television star. As The Widow in AMC's brand new martial arts drama series, INTO THE BADLANDS, Emily is without a doubt TV's prettiest villain in this reporter's recent memory.

I mean, what's more fun than a redheaded evil queen? Not only can she kick your butt with her karate, her smile, and her sex appeal, Ms. Em plays a murderer with a serious reputation for offing everybody and everything -- a real taste for blood.

Born in Manchester England in 1984 to an English pilot and his American wife, Emily is already a well-known English film and television actress, best known for her roles in The Street and The Village. But methinks her role as The Widow will make her a superstar.

Of course, you people know well I'm partial to redheads.

John Rankin, Esquire magazine's glamor photographer, said Emily had "that something special, that thing you just feel about someone ... she's one of the most exciting actresses out there."

We agree.
