The Torch Online is having a poll... The Sexiest Women of Fantasy, 2009-2010. In their selection is Lucy Lawless as Lucretia, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Naevia and Katrina Law as Mira. What? No Viva Bianca as Ilithyia or Erin Cummings as Sura?
They state: Last year, we began what is now officially our annual tradition of the sexiest characters of fantasy. This year, we’re doin’ ya one better — we’re going to let YOU, our readers, decide for yourselves.
The guidelines are simple. One, we are judging characters for their sex appeal, not actors, so even if you happen to find Cate Blanchett the sexiest lady around, I think we can all agree that her turn as Galadriel didn’t exactly turn up the heat.
Two, we are specifically dealing with fantasy characters and not sci-fi, which means that Trinity, Aeon Flux, etc. are out of the running. Superheroes are okay, but we’re mostly going for high fantasy or urban fantasy, a la Legend of the Seeker, True Blood, and the like.
Three, we’re looking for recent entries into the world of fantasy. Basically, the character has to have appeared in an entertainment project released from 2009 to 2010. (Reported by Barbara Davies)
