    I'd pick Jewel Staite, especially from Firefly/Serenity. She makes the universe happy when she smiles.

    Too funny. She's not actually tomboyish at all.

    I'm surprised Eliza Dushku hasn't appeared yet. Her Faith character on Buffy and Angel fits in with what's been mentioned so far:

    Elisha Dushku

    how about Clea Duvall from Carnivale and But I'm a Cheerleader?
    Duvall

    or Fairuza Balk from Almost Famous and American History X?
    fairuza

    Balk's often pretty impish, and Duvall is sometimes rough beyond her years, but they both can sell a hard-cased chick that can scuffle when she needs to. those both might be a bit outside the realms of conventional good looks that you're after, but i've always found extremes helps me design recognizable characters.

    On any other message board this thread would be ridiculous...but here it makes sense.

    Keira Knightley in Bend it Like Beckham.

    Rhada Mitchell in Pitch Black.

    Brain melted.

    @ Pete Martin:
    Singers are good too - all celebs, not just actresses. I would have said just anyone, but I would find it a little weird if one of you guys started posting pictures of your mates to be used as story-fodder.

    All good so far guys.

    Rhada Mitchell in "Silent Hill". come to think of it Laurie Holden as Cybill Bennett, too.

    What? Radha Mitchell was perfectly woman-ish on Silent Hill. There's a difference between tough female character and tomboy.
