Played By: Nora Zehetner
Movie: Brick (2005)

High school student notwithstanding, Laura Dannon plays up the most classic aspects of the femme fatale in the neo-noir cult favorite Brick. Instead of exposing herself as an outright antagonist, Laura subtly derails Brendan's (Joseph Gordon Levitt) investigation by pretending to be a willing co-conspirator, thus throwing him off her trail for as long as she can. Nora Zehtner's unassuming, pixie-girl look only strengthens the misconception.
