Doesn’t Dr. Cynthia Breazeal look like Jewel Staite?  Well, from all the photos I can find of them from the web, maybe they don’t look that much alike, but seeing Jewel Staite in the Firefly series and Serenity, and Cynthia Breazeal on Nova Science Now on PBS, the resemblance is uncanny.

Dr. Cynthia Breazeal makes robots capable of life-like facial expressions.

Jewel Staite is an actress who plays the part of Kaylee on the TV series “Firefly” and the movie “Serenity”.
