Hot Nerd of the Week: Eve Myles!

In keeping up with my "Hotties of the UK" segment, I have to put up my girl Eve Myles. Eve plays Gwen cooper in the Dr. Who spin off, Torchwood. She's a total badass, especially in the newest installment of the show, where she plays a badass agent, as well as a badass wife and mom.

This Welsh hottie was born in Wales in 1978. As a kid, she had a huge passion for boxing, but she had to give it up after breaking her knuckles. After high school she attended the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff, where she received a BA in acting.

Eve had small roles in shows like Merlin and Dr. Who, but her big break came in 2000 when she was cast as Ceri Owen in the BBC Wales drama Belonging. She stayed with the show all the way until its end in 2009.

In 2006 Eve took on the role that would launch her into nerdom with her role as Gwen Cooper in Torchwood. The fourth series of the show began this Summer on Starz, taking Gwen Cooper and Captain Jack to the US.

Eve's amazing accent, plus her ability to be completely kick ass is the reason I chose her for this week's Hot Nerd!
