Am I nuts, or is Alessandra Torresani (who plays Zoe on "Caprica") not that great an actor? Yes, she's got a weird role to play on that show -- she's a teenage girl trapped in electronic format inside a giant robot, and she wants to stay hidden. So we get to see her as a girl, but others in the show see her as a machine. But it just seems like this give her all sorts of opportunities to act with her face, and she doesn't rise to the occasion. On the most recent episode, the sweet techno nerd was upgrading her breastplate, and commented, "Now that's a nice chest." Not even a little eyebrow twitch from her.
Maybe I'm missing it. After all, one of the things that distinguished "Galactica" was the creators' ability to extract rather good performances from actors not known for being good. Think Richard Hatch. So maybe Torresani really is doing what the director wants. It just seems like it could be a lot more.
