  • I love her! She is tough, passionate, funny and totally believable. I rarely have crushes on actresses but she is awesome.

    I love her! She is tough, passionate, funny and totally believable. I rarely have crushes on actresses but she is awesome. I don't know if it's the show's writing or her acting but she makes it look easy. She's a great actress! Her voice and her beautiful hazel eyes are so sexy. I'm in a long-term relationship with my boyfriend, but I would totally go lesbian for her! I hope that Southland has many more seasons just so I can keep watching her character. She makes me even want to quit my job and become a police officer in my home town.moreless

    I only know Regina from her role on the television show 24 - and her performance was about as good as 24's season 6, which for her was a huge dissapointment unfortionately. I thought that her acting in the first several episodes of the season were terrible and she just had a lot of trouble fitting into the show and passing herself off as the long-lost Palmer sibling that we had never heard about.



    Im not sure if it was her and the acting or the simple fact that the character she was given was horrible, but either way I wasn't impressed with her apperance on 24. Her role was random and pointless to the season and I dotn feel that she conveyed whatthe producers wanted her to convey from her character. Weakest "One Hit Wonder" of 24 Season 6.moreless
