Character: Elena

Brooke Williams debuted as Elena in episode 13 of season 6 of Outrageous Fortune on October 5, 2010.


Elena first appears in a life drawing class which Van mistaken ly attends in place of his small business class. Elena is the nude model for the class, and Van immediately becomes fascinated with her. Elena cannot “speak English so good,” th ough she seems to return Van’s affection. She is almost afraid of the man who continually comes to pick her up in a construction truck, saying quickly “I must go.” Throughout the rest of the season, Elena is developed as Van’s love interest. See the episode links for more details.

Though she has few lines, due to her character not speaking English, Ms. Williams delivers an entertaining and nuanced performance, as always.

An album of Elena pictures is now available on the Pictures page.
