Mercedes McNab - totally nailed the comedy role of Harmony in Buffy and in Angel. Tons more talent than Jennifer Aniston who reprises Rachel from Friends over and over again in her films!
She's the daughter of Bob McNab, a member of the Arsenal Double-winning side of 71

I really hate it when perfectly good actors become typecast. Ingrid Pitt was always seen as some kind of female vampire and couldn't get many roles outside of thrillers and horror films, even though she was trained by Berthold Brecht's theatre company, and Katy Manning, again quite capable, will forever be seen as Jo Grant and has found roles quite difficult to find.
Another example would be Anton Diffring who regularly turned up as a Nazi in British war films of the 50s, 60s and 70s
