Our second weekly birthday celebration kicks off with actress/singer/producer Vanessa Hudgens, born on December 14 and represented here by a cute scene alongside Christina Kirk in the DC Comics sitcom Powerless. Speaking of DC: December 15 belongs to original Supergirl Helen Slater, and we've got her sexy scene from A House in the Hills to mark the occasion. On December 16, we tip our proverbial hats to Miranda Otto with a scene from 24 that doesn't end well for her character (though that part's not in the clip).
December 17 is a busy day that brought us a number of well-known actresses. First we have Laurie Holden and Sarah Paulson, who featured in gag scenes a few years back as part of their respective gigs on The Walking Dead and American Horror Story. Then there's Claire Forlani, who appears a few times on ScreenTies but is probably best known for her picturesque gag scene in Beer for My Horses. And last but not least, here's to Canadian beauty Katheryn Winnick, whose guest character in Transporter: The Series could have totally removed her gag...but of course we're glad she didn't.
On December 18, we celebrate Golden Globe winner Rachel Griffiths, whose DiD resumé is ultra-short but does include a brief tape-gag scene in The Hard Word. She's joined by Ashley Benson, looking great with her hands tied overhead and a black cleave gag in her guest role on Supernatural.
And finally, December 19 is another popular birthday, with no fewer than five actresses in IMDB's Top 5000 who currently have a single scene each on our site. First, Jennifer Beals turns up wearing a slip and a unique rope/stuff gag in a long scene from the second segment of the 1995 anthology comedy Four Rooms. Jessica Steen's recurring character finds herself tied up in a car trunk and barn on NCIS. You'll miss Kristy Swanson's gag scene in The Phantom if you blink, but it least it's joined by an equally brief OTS carry and handgag. Alyssa Milano as Phoebe in the original Charmed finds herself in peril a few times, most notably in the episode "From Fear to Eternity." And happy 40th birthday to Marla Sokoloff, who gives us a short-but-cute scene alongside Jennifer Garner when both "babes" are bound and gagged with bubble wrap in Dude, Where's My Car?
See you next week for over a dozen more birthdays as the year draws to a close!
