This actress contains examples of:
- Fake Russian: Portrays Lt. Sasha Kaidanovsky in Pacific Rim.
- Power Makes Your Voice Deep: Inverted. Doerksen's naturally husky voice (coupled with her height) make her well-cast as a woman of authority, such as a lieutenant in Pacific Rim, a captain in Stargate Atlantis, a major in Fringe and a sergeant in Battlestar Galactica (2003).
- Statuesque Stunner: Stands at 5'9.5".
- The Nose Knows: Completely averted. Doerksen has no sense of smell, having lost it between the ages of 15 and 20. She jokes that guys tell her she's the perfect girlfriend because she can't smell farts.
