[[caption-width-right:214: You are now in love with Jewel Staite]]

'''Jewel Belair Staite''' (born 1982) is a Canadian-born actress best known as the cheery, plucky mechanic Kaylee in ''Series/{{Firefly}}''.

However, if that's all you've seen of her, you've missed a lot, my friend.

Born in White Rock, BC, Jewel spent most of the first four years of her life on Maui. She became a child model and actress, scoring roles on such shows as ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' and ''TheXFiles'' (where she received CPR from David Duchovny) before scoring her first two big roles as Becca Fisher on the DisneyChannel series ''Series/FlashForward'' and rainbow-haired mechanic Catalina on the PeterDavid-created series ''SpaceCases''. A successful teevee career followed, though she remained under the radar until she got her Hollywood break as Kaylee.

Though nowadays she's still somewhat under the radar, doing TV originals of [[SyFy questionable quality]], while thousands of geeks are lying in wait.

She has a Twitter, at the [[http://twitter.com/JewelStaite expected address]].
