Happy Birthday, Claire!

Happy Birthday to the woman who...

...taught me how to avoid getting knocked up with some simple herbs...

...refuses to do what anyone tells her to do...

...knows how to properly use wee stabbers...

...is feisty

...isn't so great in the kitchen...

...remains comical even in times of stress...

and

isna so good with celibacy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CLAIRE!!!  We love ya!!

Wow, she is pretty close to how I imagined her! Who is she?

That is Hayley Atwell who plays Peggy Carter from Captain America. Very beautiful English gal. Could be a contender :-)

I've struggled with picturing Claire- 'till now (I am 1/3 of the way in Fiery Cross and struggling with it), but only if I can imagine her at age 50...
She's a good Claire, Carol. Thanks!

Thanks for posting, All! Hayley Atwell has been on my short list to play Claire for quite some time. Her portrayal of Aliena on Pillars of the Earth clinched the deal. English...tough...feisty...does what needs to be done. And is naturally pretty with, might I say, a pretty ample bosom...just like Claire. :)

Lord, have had NO time to post in days, but must say that that is one GREAT Claire pic. It's like you plucked her right out of WWII!

Oh, gotta love Claire for all of those reasons. I love that pic as well.
