It's all about fantasy for Erica Cerra. The Vancouver native is no stranger to playing make believe on television, tackling a wide variety of roles from the superhero-themed Smallville to sci-fi's Battlestar Galactica. While the rising starlet claims she recalls all of her past job opportunities for their individual reasons, it was her time as Deputy Jo Lupo on Syfy's Eureka that truly stands out in her mind. "I would say my role on that show was the most educational for me as a young actress," Cerra told Maxim.
Despite the network's decision not to extend the popular series past a sixth season, we've still been lucky enough to see the beautiful brunette impress us on the small screen. Her latest role on CW's The 100 has shifted reality to a dystopian world, 97 years after a devastating nuclear war decimates almost all of life on Earth. Cerra latched onto the futuristic series at the end of season 2 as Alie, a vital asset involved in saving what's left of the human race.
The future may be in trouble, but with Erica Cerra around, we should all be just fine.
We spoke to Cerra about her ideal date, playing it simple, and loving her backside.
