Jewel Staite is probably best known for her role as Kaylee in cult classic TV Show Firefly (followed up by the movie Serenity). She can currently be seen in The L.A. Complex on the CW. However, she has cemented her “nerd actress” status by playing a reoccurring – then main – role on Stargate: Atlantis and having guest spots on The X-FilesWarehouse 13, and Supernatural.

Jewel was born in Canada and is the youngest of seven children. And she reportedly lives within a few blocks of her parents in Vancouver. She also writes a food & travel blog called Happy Opu which owes its name partly to the time she spent living in Maui, Hawaii. She began acting at age six and scored her first big roles as a teenager on Disney’s Flash Forward and Nickelodeon’s Space Cases.
