Brooke Williams as Elena in Outrageous Fortune

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

Note: Article contains spoilers.

Elena

Elena first appears in a life drawing class which Van mistakenly 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,” though 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” and running to the truck whenever it arrives. It is speculated that the man in the truck is either her father or her husband.

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.

Aurelia

Spartacus: Gods of the Arena

We had previously reported that Ms. Williams would not be playing Aurelia in the prequel based on a tweet we received from @spartacus_starz. It looks like that may have changed – Ms. William’s Auckland Actors CV has been updated, and includes a credit for the prequel. We’re not sure at this time whether she is being credited for footage that has already been shot for the episodes that will be marginally used in the prequel, or if she will have a role as Aurelia in the prequel. We’ve sent some inquiries, and you will know as soon as we do.

Dog Sees God:

There is some confusion as to whether Ms. Williams will be performing in this play. She is not listed on the playbill of the venue’s website, nor is it listed on her updated CV, but she is mentioned in this article.

Again, you’ll know as soon as we do.

Outrageous Fortune:

Ms. Williams’ updated CV credits her as playing a character named “Elena” in one or more episodes of the final season of this New Zealand dramedy. We’re collecting information right now, and will present a post as soon as we are able!

New Zealand Earthquake

Haven’t had any direct news on where Ms. Williams was during the earthquake or whether she was affected by it. However, after making inquiries via Twitter and Facebook, got the following message from the maintainer of the Predicament Facebook page:

brooke williams earthquakeThe earthquake:

“Thousands of people were left shaken following a massive earthquake tonight which was felt throughout the lower North Island and Upper South Island.

The quake, which measured 6.8 on the richter scale, was centred under the sea 50km south-east from Gisborne but was felt all the way down to Christchurch.

While the extent of the damage was not known last night, firefighters were flooded with calls about fallen power lines, building damage and activated alarms.”
