    God, I hope I don\'t jinx her career, but the few times I have seen this lovely and talented young actress I have been impressed. It was her episode \"Beautiful Little Fool\" that hooked me on Cold Case, where she played a doomed young flapper in the twenties. Her acting was great and she sang two blues songs that sounded incredible (I have seen no indication that it was not her doing the singing). Recently she upstaged Eva Longoria as a spoiled young model who showed Gabrielle a thing or two about how the modeling game has changed. Good luck with your career Miss Miller, I hope to see your talent blossom.moreless
