You know her as:
Melissa Glaser, the least assertive of the "Secret Circle" witch coven. After her boyfriend's death, she's become a bit disillusioned with her friends -- particularly her Queen Bee Mean Girl BFF, Faye.
Why we like her:
Thus far, Melissa seems to be the least developed character on the show, but Kennedy is one of the best surprises of the 2011 season. Her work in a scene where her character was possessed by a demon was so good we were startled by her -- but she doesn't need big dramatic scenes to impress us. She's also fantastic and subtle in more casual, high-school-hallway scenes as well. It never feels like she's acting
. We're hoping the second half of the season lends itself to more opportunities for us to see Kennedy turn it up a notch.
Where else you've seen her:
She was Plastique -- AKA Bette Sans Souci -- on "Smallville," and she was in the original "Undercovers" pilot before being replaced by Mekia Cox. You may also remember her from short-lived series "Kaya," "Soul," and "Valemont."
