Karina Lombard on L Word, 4400 and Brad
Since making her big, early-'90s splash in Hollywood with the one-two punch of Wide Sargasso Sea and Legends of the Fall, Karina Lombard has been a hard one to peg — and that's not just because the actress, born in Tahiti and raised in Spain, has that wonderfully exotic, not quite placeable accent. No, her acting choices, varied in range, style and, alas, frequency, have also given her an enigmatic sheen. After appearing in only a smattering of films since Legends, she resurfaced in 2004 on a cable series, no less, and the series was the then brand-new (and groundbreaking) The L Word at that.
"That came out of the blue," she tells TVGuide.com of her being wooed by Showtime's sapphic series.
