Actress Jaime Murray (Warehouse 13, Defiance) recently discussed her loving and loyal lesbian fan base. Murray said, “It’s an under-represented demographic and it’s a really loyal fan base and it’s really nice to play those roles without making a big deal about it or making too much comment, because the more we normalize it the better. You’re not defined by your sexuality but by what you do.”
