Rule 5 Saturday - That Lost Girl - Anna Silk

This one has been sitting in my list of "maybes" for Rule 5 Saturday forever, and it's time to get past it. Anna Silk:

Anna Silk, (born 31 January 1974)  is a Canadian actress best known for her role as Bo Dennis, the protagonist of the Showcase television series Lost Girl (2010–2015)
I saw some of the first season. It was amusing but not too deep. I didn't realize they managed 5 seasons out of it!
Silk was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, the daughter of Peter Silk, an academic, and his wife Ilkay, an actress, director, producer, playwright, educator, and Director of Drama at St. Thomas University. Her father is British and her mother a "Turkish-Cypriot-English expat". Some of Anna's earliest memories were of going to play rehearsals and watching her mother work.

Silk's television work includes the role of Cassidy Holland in Being Erica, for which she received a Gemini Awards nomination in 2009.

In 2009, she landed the principal role of Bo Dennis, a succubus, in the Canadian television series Lost Girl. Her portrayal of Bo together with Lauren (Zoie Palmer) as same-sex lovers (NSFW link) on Lost Girl was named one of its all-time Favorite TV Couples by CNN (Cable News Network); and declared Top TV Couple of 2013 by E! Entertainment Television. As a result of the show's popularity, Silk garnered a prominent online following on social media. 

Silk appeared in the recurring role of Roarke, a mercenary, in the 2019 series Blood & Treasure.

I saw that, but I don't remember her (or at least didn't connect).

Minor NSFW.
