Yep, actress Jolene Blalock, who played the sexiest Vulcan who ever graced anything called Star Trek, is headed back to TV, and this time she's evil. Blalock, who is best known for her role as T'Pol on Star Trek: Enterprise, is joining the cast of Legend of the Seeker in a recurring role for the show's second season.
Blalock's had a number of guest roles since she raised the pulses of Trek fans, including CSI: Miami, Stargate SG-1 and the film Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. Now she'll finally get a chance to dig in with a continuing role with some bite on Seeker, as a mysterious Sister of the Dark with some serious magical powers.
Legend of the Seeker's second season begins with Richard (Craig Horner) and Kahlan (Bridget Regan) dealing with the fallout of Richard killing the villainous Darken Rahl. Apparently even after you fulfill a prophecy you can't keep evil forces down (literally down, since the evil forces are coming from the underworld). It will force Richard to learn all about the Wizard's Second Rule, "The greatest harm can result from the best intentions."
Blalock's Sister of the Dark character will attempt to end Richard's quest to stop the vile forces from the underworld. However, her real goal is to destroy Kahlan.
This season, beyond Blalock, Tabrett Bethell also joins the cast as Cara, the Mord'Sith who helped Richard ultimately defeat Darken Rahl in the season-one finale. And Angel's Charisma Carpenter will guest-star in Seeker's premiere in syndication on the weekend of Nov. 7.
