6. GINA TORRES

Torres is the unsung hero of those cheesy but addicting old action shows. She’s been training her body in martial arts ever since appearing in Hercules, Xena, and Cleopatra 2525. She also played Zoe, the second-in-command “warrior woman” in Firefly. If we were in a space western, we wouldn’t pick anyone else to be on our side, especially when she’s been practicing high kicks and jabs for years.
