Birthdays for February 21-27

Birthdays for February 21-27

Featuring Teresa Palmer, Kate Mara, Lindsey Morgan, Drew Barrymore, Jeri Ryan, and more!

raffish

February came in like a lion on the DiD birthday front, but its final week is looking far more lamb-like. Not to be elitist about these things, but we found ourselves with more "DiD-adjacent" actresses than usual who just haven't quite found themselves in that one memorable scene. Maybe next year?

Still, there are some big names and solid scenes on our list. First is Seven of Nine (though in this case perhaps it's one of seven?) herself, Jeri Ryan, whose guest spot on the '90s version of The Flash involved a shiny strapless top and a nice white cleave gag. Sharing the 22nd with her is Drew Barrymore, whose most notable DiD moment arrived in an even bigger big franchise update: the 2000 Charlie's Angels. We know that the "fake lips on a tape gag" shtick isn't everyone's thing, but we certainly got a "kick" out of watching her destroy five bad guys while tied (at least at first) to a chair.

On the 23rd, it's Kristin Davis's turn, and as much fun as it was to watch her stripping down to her bra to escape from a pesky zip tie in Blacktop, it's her close encounter with a duct-tape-wielding serial killer in 1997's A Deadly Vision that truly merits her  star on the DiD walk of fame. The 24th belongs to Bonnie Somerville, whose scene alongside Gatlin Kate James was a bit more substantial than the typical Criminal Minds fare. And Teresa Palmer is turning 35 on February 26, so what better time to revisit her perilous turn as a blindfolded and tape-gagged beauty queen in Cut Bank?

For Kate Mara on the 27th, we figured the scene in CSI where she turns up as a corpse would be the wrong way to close out the week, so we went with Captive and its much happier ending instead. And for Lindsey Morgan, while we've added two more triple-damsel scenes from The 100 to celebrate, the one we've included here is still the one that features her the most. See you next week!

Update: Robert reminded us of a critical omission for February 25 in the form of Jean Bruce Scott. We promised to make amends, and without knocking her scenes from Airwolf (which you can also watch out for shortly), we just had to go with a fresh edit of that classic moment from St. Elsewhere when her character orders Ed Begley Jr.'s character to tie her up for sex. Good times.
