inmate profile: Michele Boyd

Continuing Committed's spotlighting of the creative talent behind The Asylum's upcoming adventure epic 3 Musketeers, we look now at actress Michele Boyd, who plays "Aramis" in the film, one of the, well, 3 musketeers.

I could take the time to re-work her IMDB bio into my own phrasing, but frankly, this is a big cast and time is of the essence, so pardon my shortcut and peep Ms. Boyd's background:

"Born in Gainesville, Florida, Michele's childhood was spent constantly moving due to her father's Navy career, traveling everywhere from Virginia to Japan. Eschewing the usual career path of most actors, Michele earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior from the University of California, Davis. Besides academia, Michele became an avid snowboarder and active in Hapkido, a street-style martial art that blends Aikido and Tae Kwon Do.

After moving across country yet again to Boston, Michele started traveling down to New York City two or three times a week for auditions and acting training. After landing roles in several independent films, Michele came back to California, signed with a manager and soon landed her first television role as a surgical intern on "Untold Stories of the ER" (2005)".

Pretty impressive stuff, right? Especially the part about her degree in Neurobiology etc from UCAL-Davis. Sheesh, check out the big brain on Ms. Boyd. Curiously enough, 3 Musketeers scribe Ed DeRuiter also has a neuro-degree; he minored in neuroscience at USC. Smart set. My science in college was astronomy, which was pretty much just getting stoned and staring at stars for a semester. I got a C. I'm digressing...

Since getting her big break, Ms. Boyd has worked steadily in film and television, including roles on "Sons of Anarchy," "The Young & the Restless," "Cold Case," "How I Met Your Mother" and - most notably and my personal favorite - in 14 episodes of season 3 of Felicia Day's outstanding series "The Guild," in which Ms. Boyd played "Riley," the dominating and insatiable girlfriend of Zaboo. 3 Musketeers will mark Ms. Boyd's second stay with The Asylum; earlier this year she appeared in Battle Los Angeles as "Pilot 1," the badass that lead the first assault on those lousy aliens.

Prepare yourself for that badass-streak to continue when 3 Musketeers hits DVD on October 25th.
