Why we love Janina Gavankar
You might have seen Janina Gavankar play promiscuous lady-botherer Papi on lesbi-drama The L Word, or the shapeshifting school-teacher Luna on vampire suck-fest True Blood – those are the two roles she's most famous for, anyway. She's also cropped up in Stargate: Atlantis (as Sgt. “Dusty” Mehra, which is a rubbish nickname to have), NCIS, Grey's Anatomy and on something called Epileptic Gaming, which sounds like a thoroughly dangerous and short-lived premise for a show.
What you may not know, however, is that super-hot Janina is also a dab-hand at sing-songing, having previously been a part of R’n’B group Endera, and released a number of nifty ditties as a solo artist, including a killer cover of Kanye West’s Love Lockdown. She’s fit, she can sing, and she can shape-shift into any animal you like – what more could you possibly want from a woman?
