Thanks for finally giving some props to Femi - I've noticed she's not getting enough credit for the work she's doing on as Bianca Turner.

I became a fan of hers when she played Lani on Wicked Wicked Games, and she always stole the scene when she was on camera. Terrific actress. Definitely one to keep an eye on.
