Two birthdays from this day in Sci-Fi History bound to blow your socks off. First, in 1963, Lori Petty was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  She got her big break in Point Break, plays a seriously great character on Orange is the New Black, but people, she was Tank Girl.

More recently, she’s been on a few episodes of Gotham.

Today is also the birthday of Ben Wishaw, born on this day in 1980. He’s desperately cute, and also, in some of your favorite sci-fi and fantasy. Starting with:

Cloud Atlas (2012)

Skyfall (2012)

And more recently, The Lobster (2016)

Tomorrow: Oh, just wait for it...
