If you all don’t know I’m a huge Firefly fan by now….where have you been? One of the joys of watching Captain Mal Reynolds…I mean Firefly star Nathan Fillion on his current show Castle is the references he sneaks in now and again to the beloved show.
In April, Adam Baldwin (Firefly’s lovable mercenary Jayne Cobb) guested as a cop. Next to step on board the Castle set is Gina Torres who played Mal’s first officer Zoe on the series. Gina is cast as a successful – and ruthless – fashion mogul Samantha Foster in the episode, “Reality Star Struck”. Foster is the star of a Real Housewives type reality show and is more devious off camera.
After Firefly was canceled, Torres starred in the series 24 and Alias and now co-stars on the USA Network’s Suits as lawyer Jessica Pearson.
