BABEWATCH: Dichen Lachman

Dollhouse's Dichen Lachman

Dichen Lachman of 'Dollhouse'

Dollhouse is Joss Whedon’s not-very-good show about a service that applies neural wipes to people’s minds in order to implant them with made-to-order personalities. It’s currently (quietly) entering into a second season on Fox, and the production is pretty rough–it’s no Buffy–but it’s worth tuning in to for a couple of reasons: the most important being the beautiful Dichen Lachman.

Lachman plays Sierra, a tough and fiery free spirit who actually manages to evoke a character complexity in the show, despite the overall cardboard construction. She’s also all kinds of wonderful to look at, with her sunny hair and high cheekbones and latte skin and searching eyes. Add an Aussie accent and she’s so freakin’ fantastic, we can see why she so naturally strolls through this dark world of sci-fi fantasy, as if somehow she belongs there.

Want to take a trip with her? Eyeball her big episode on Hulu. You’ll be dreaming of an Lachman/Eliza Dushku sandwich for years–or until your next neural wipe.


Thanks, Tina!

    While I agree with your assessment of Lachman and the show is not a “Buffy” I have to say that I think the show is very good. All of the shows that Joss does are really different from one another.

  2. Android says:

    i think she is the first one that has had a story on her characters past. i have watched this from the second episode and i been hooked ever since.

  3. xandersaide says:

    I have to agree…the show is better in concept than execution–and the lead (Dushku) is best. Lachman is the shows highlight.

    I am such a huge fan of Dichen la! The only reason I tuned in to the show in the first place was a friend pointed out to me that there was a Tibetan lead (ok…half Tibetan and major recurrent role) on main stream television!
    Dichen la, tashi delek! Khyerang Lokle la hachang yagpo du! Ngatso tsangma pe kyipo du! (or, as my crew says: ngatso hachang sem shyike!)
    བདེ་ཆེན་ལགས། ང་ཚོ་ཚང་མ་ཧ་ཅང་སེམས་དགའ་འདུག ཁྱེད་རང་གི་བོད་རིགས་སྤྲུན་ཟླ་ཁྱེད་རང་ཀློག་ལས་ལ་ཐང་ནས་ཧ་ཅང་སེམས་སྐྱིད་པོ་ཆགས་སོང་།
    I should not be as excited as I am by all of this.

    The show has potential and I keep up with it. Lachman plays a great character. And yes, I would like a Dichen Lachman/Eliza Dushku sammich please. :)
