My Weekend Crush

Some of you noted when disclosing my tendencies toward dark-haired, impossibly cheekboned, deliciously accented women of the UK of late that I had left a certain lady off my recent crush list. Well, actually, I left several ladies off. But, truth be told, I left out one purpose. You see, I wanted to save Jaime Murray all for the weekend. Certainly, she ticks all my categories: hair, check; cheekbones, check; accent, check. And, she has something else – where she goes, something gay often follows. First in “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” and now in “Warehouse 13,” Jaime has caused her female cohorts pulses to quicken – both overtly and covertly. Of course, how could they not? Just look at her. And besides just being just outrageously gorgeous, Jaime brings a delightful dose of sass to her roles. It’s a rare combination, really. You don’t usually get to be so endearingly cheeky when you’ve got the body of a femme fatale. But it’s that very combination of an aristocratic face and a devilish charm that makes her so wickedly intoxicating. I mean, anyone who gets to make out with Lucy Lawless and give significant sideways glances to Joanne Kelly clearly has some serious game. But then, as I’ve said – just look at her. (That link is so NSFW and so worth it.) Happy weekend, all.

p.s. HG returns Monday night on “Warehouse 13.” Who else has purchased a first-class ticket on the Myka/HG love ship?

Jaime Murray and Joanne Kelly just kill it as Helena and Myka! I also love that the actresses fully support the lady love going on there! Aces!

Just in to completely agree with both your post, Dorothy and the response by birdge12... I am a big HG/Myka shipper!

Love Jaime and Joanne!

Highly recommend her on the British show "Hustle" seasons 1-4 from BBC (DVDs are available in the US). She plays a con artist and man, is she super good at it!

Ah! She played Lila on Season 2 of "Dexter!" (Seriously, you have got to watch that show!)

First time I ever saw Jaime Murray, about ten years ago, she was playing a lesbian on British cop show THE BILL. The storyline was lesbian cop falls for gorgeous lesbian criminal, with all the moral quandries that ensue. She played the criminal, of course.

... Dammit, I'm going to have to start watching Warehouse 13, aren't I?

Jennifer said...

Are they going into their 3rd season or 4th? Now to decide if I can add another show to my already full DVR. That, and do I watch from the beginning or jump right in?

Rachelle said...

Yap, she was devil on 'Dexter'...

Claire said...

These two are a very big reason to watch Warehouse 13! Watching a few scenes you realize that HG is always looking at Myka with pure lust!

Jenny said...

Oh Ms Snarker! You should totally check out her tweets with Julie Benz!

You're in store for gems such as this - from Julie Benz : "Driving in a car with Jaime behind the wheel was one of the scariest moments in my life", at which she replied "Milkshake needs 2 get out more".

And my fav, from Benz to Murray "being your friend is like owning 4 dogs.I have to deal with a lot of crap.Only dif is the dogs are so much more appreciative!"
Murray to B- "Oh you're no Cesar Millan @juliebenz I just need dicipline, exercise & affection. When was the last time you tickled my tummy?"

You'll also find that their conversations include topics such as invitation for poisoned meals, mean jokes about the improportionate size of Jaime's feet(and in retaliation, Julie's 'stubby feet'), and just plain overload of lovely/mean banter.

Loved her on Hustle. 4 seasons of hotness right there. A must see.

A friend of mine is one of the powers-that-be on Warehouse 13, and he said that he thoroughly enjoyed working with Jaime Murray. Additionally, he wrote some of the H.G./Myka subtext and said that she picked right up on it and ran with it.

So the bottom line is, she rocks. :-)

they've a lot of chemistry. In my personal opinion, more than Rizzoli and Isles.

I'm hooked on H.G and Myka - so much so that it's currently overtaken my love for Rizzoli and Isles (damn the writers for ruining Maura this season)

Can't wait to see them reunited this week!

DutchCJ said...

Well, she is not my weekend crush, but I love Helena and Myka! Yep I am big HG/Myka shipper too :-) And the spinoff would be great if it had Myka in it, but if it is set in Helena's time that would be a problem, right?

Anonymous said...

yes, Hustle! She's the British Sydney Bristow, if you will. Except she's a conwoman. Absolutely gorgeous in that series.

Carol said...

So glad you featured JM!! I've just caught the bug, too! She seems delightful - and now I have recs on past shows she's done, from the comments... That'll keep me out of trouble for awhile...

I've just started watching Warehouse 13, but I couldn't wait to meet H.G. Wells (as a woman!!!). So I skipped season 1 almost completly. Lame, I know, but she is so fascinating!! It's great to know that the "side looks" means exactly what we thought they meant... so refreshing!

Ah! BTW, Ms. Snarker! If you forgive my indiscretion: it would be lovely to see Lilli Palmer at your "My weekend crush" column (or could be in your labels list) one of these days. :B
