Desktop Girl of the Week: Stana Katic

This feature isn't "Desktop Girl Who I Saw on TV Monday Night of the Week", but sometimes it feels like that, particularly since I watch a lot of Monday TV series and DGOW runs on Tuesday. But regardless of which day of the week Stana Katic graces my screen, she's definitely worthy of being a DGOW selection.

For those unfamiliar with this Canadian beauty, Ms. Katic plays Detective Kate Beckett on the ABC series "Castle". She got the role back in 2008, after having supporting roles as sexy women in the movies "Quantum of Solace" (which you should definitely see) and "The Spirit" (which you should see under no circumstances, even though it has Stana along with ScarJo and Eva Mendes... it's THAT bad).

Fans of the recently canceled (FINALLY!) series "Heroes" may also recognize Stana as Hana Gitelman, who could send and receive wireless messages with her mind. Though her power was woefully underutilized on the show itself, the Gitelman character was a major part of the Heroes comics during the first season, and Katic did a solid job translating her to the screen.

And, as if she wasn't already awesome enough, Stana is doing the voice of Talia Al Ghul for the "Batman: Arkham Asylum 2" video game. And she's got experience with speaking: according to the always 100% accurate and trustworthy Wikipedia, Katic speaks seven languages fluently, and I bet she knows how to say "I'm WAY out of your league" in all of them.
As always with DGOW, I’ll provide a widescreen (1680x1050) image for downloading. If you want to see past DGOW, then just check the archive album.
