Some of our favorite moments at AfterEllen HQ happen when we are reminded about the fictional lesbian origins of our favorite TV characters. We always get a kick out of remembering Jessica Capshaw as Bette Porter’s lusty graduate student in The L Word. Or Bianca Lawson as a maybe-murdering lesbian psychopath on the super short-lived For the People. Yesterday, when we were whipping ourselves into a frenzy about the upcoming Lost Girl finale, we remembered that we’d seen Zoie Palmer play a lesbian before Dr. “Hot Pants” Lauren Lewis. In 2009, she made a brief appearance on the Canadian web series Seeing Simone.
Here, see for yourself:
I actually rewatched both seasons of the web series yesterday, and enjoyed it even more than I did the first time. I also went looking for some info about whether or not they’re ever going to follow-up on season two’s cliffhanger, and it looks like they’re working on it!
OK, now show of hands: Who would risk emotional crabs to date Zoie Palmer? All of you? That’s what I thought.
