Alright, so maybe she's only picked it up after almost five years
of the game being out, but it looks like actress Eliza Dushku
has started to play World of Warcraft
. The actress, who broke into the nerd radar when she played a renegade Slayer in Joss Whedon's Buffy, tweeted yesterday asking her followers
whether she should roll Alliance or Horde. The tweet made a small ripple across the nerdverse. The Dollhouse star, whose new show is getting pummeled in the ratings
, received a number of responses on Twitter, most of them telling her to roll a Horde Blood Elf. We certainly hope she bucks the trend, though...
Please roll a female Tauren Druid.
Dushku isn't the first actress or celebrity to publicly reveal a geeky side, and certainly not the first, uh, cryogenically-challenged female to play the game. There's Mila Kunis
from That 70's Show, Guild creator and star Felicia Day
, or even gaming event staple Kat Hunter
, so the actress' firing up WoW
probably isn't that
big a deal. I mean, it's really okay to be geeky. There's nothing to it. Even girls play video games
. It's also stipulated in the nerd handbook that we should play them in our underwear. The Chewbacca one.
