Never Played Mass Effect

Allow me to regale you with this interview, in which Yvonne Strahovski (aka Mass Effect's Miranda Lawson) admits to have never played the video game she stars in:

First reaction: no wonder I always preferred Liara.
Second reaction: Within each of us there is a tendency to glorify and personalise the portrayers of our fictional heroes. It's natural; it goes hand in hand with being human. Alas, the less glamorous truth is that to these idols of ours, the characters they portray and the things they do on screen for us are nothing but their day jobs.
The reality is that while their day jobs are probably way more glamorous than yours and mine, they probably still think the same about their day jobs as you and I.

I found it a bit strange, but I preferred Dr. Eleanor "Ellie" Bartowski, which is a bit strange as I usually go for the blonde.

Miranda Lawson, the woman with the perfect genes, is a brunet.
