Not bad for one fall season, especially if you're barely 26 years old.
Odette Annable (Colombian and Cuban descent) was still Odette Yustman when she came to L.A. just a few years ago from near by Riverside. She was barely 21 when she appeared in the much-ballyhoo'd monster movie "Cloverfield" and starred in her first TV series, the short-lived "October Road." When that ended, she certainly didn't, doing everything from horror movies ("The Unborn And Soon the Darkness") to video games ("Fallout 3") to another short-lived series ("South Beach") to guest shots on other TV series. Then things started to sizzle again when she did an arc on ABC's Brothers and Sisters‘«Űwhere she met her future husband David Annable and changed her name.
But that wasn't nearly enough: last year she made a good impression as the bad, bad girl on FOX's "Breaking In," opposite Christian Slater‘«™and now FOX has doubled down on Odette. She'll be joining the cast of FOX's venerable medical hit "House," as a prison doctor House meets while doing time‘«™and returning as mega-thief Melanie Garcia in the second season of "Breaking In" ‘«Ű a show with the singular distinction of being cancelled months ago, only to be renewed anyway, just last week. Odette recently confirmed she was going to be doing both; "House" is filming right now, and she'll go straight from that sound stage to Slater's, since "Breaking" is slated for a mid-season start, all while her husband takes a well-deserved rest ("Brothers and Sisters" was cancelled by ABC after five years just a few months back).
