Geek muse


Born in 1979 in Sydney, Australia and introduced to American shores with a minor role in Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones, Rose Byrne is shaping up to be the sci-fi/action/fantasy geek’s muse of choice. Originally considered to play Bond Girl Vesper Lind in Casino Royale, (and gave us reason enough to sit through Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette) Rose has us looking forward to 2007 with her role in Danny Boyle and the Trainspotting team’s film Sunshine (and dare we mention 28 Weeks Later, the sequel to 28 Days Later) .
