Daphne Ashbrook is an American actress, singer and writer, best known to geeks for having been in ''both'' ''Franchise/StarTrek'' and ''Series/DoctorWho'', and best known to the internet for being OneOfUs to an almost unprecedented degree. She has also had recurring parts on ''Series/{{JAG}}'' and ''Series/TheOC''.

Ashbrook enjoyed her role in ''Doctor Who'' so much that she still happily blogs about it [[http://daphneashbrook.tumblr.com on her tumblr]], frequently in character, and has [[http://webdalek.tumblr.com a second tumblr account where she blogs as Webdalek]]. She also appeared in ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'' alongside her ''Doctor Who'' co-stars, though (due to copyright issues) as different characters.

Ashbrook is notable as the only major aversion of the FakeAmerican trope on ''Doctor Who''; all other American companions have been played by Brits or Canadians.
