See Her Tonight
Elyse Levesque on The Originals
(8:00 PM EST, The CW)
There’s practically nothing but reruns going up against the Olympics tonight–which gives your See Her Tonight column a chance to catch up with other shows and discover important things like Elyse Levesque being on The Originals. Yow. That one sure got past us the first time. That’s really shameful, too, since founding show The Vampire Diaries have given us ladies like Olga Fonda, Phoebe Tonkin, and Janina Gavankar.
Anyway, Elyse Levesque is playing a wickedly sexy witch named Genevieve, and she’s already shown up in four episodes this season. She isn’t a new face to genre fans, though. Sci-fi geeks got elated over Elyse back when the redhead began showing up in tank-tops while starring in SGU Stargate Universe. Even geekier guys (like us, maybe) were already familiar with the Canadian cutie from a couple of appearances on Smallville.
And it turns out that Elyse was a kiddie star in her homeland, too, so she’s certainly used to working in front of the camera. Fortunately, that includes plenty of hot modeling work–but we’re not looking to neglect Elyse Levesque’s fine acting talents. She held her own against some veteran actors in the Stargate franchise, and we’re looking forward to her lead role in the upcoming indie Spare Change. She also has an upcoming film called Fishing Naked, but we’re not going to get our hopes up over that one. Check out these pics, though, and you’ll be up for Elyse stopping by your living room tonight…
