A familiar face from Australian TV, she had breakthrough roles in both ''Film/QueenOfTheDamned'' and ''Film/PitchBlack'' ([[ChronicallyKilledActor dying messily]] in each). Until late in her career, spotting Black's screen credit was a telltale sign of [[CaliforniaDoubling Australia Doubling]].²²Since then, Black has popped up in numerous American productions -- usually as a FakeAmerican -- including ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' (as a BikerBabe) and ''Series/TheDresdenFiles''. ²²Though her natural accent (switching effortlessly between Australian, British and New Zealander) is rather underused on network TV, it should be immediately recognizable to nerds of all stripes. Black has a formidable résumé of voice credits, including ''Franchise/DragonAge'', ''Franchise/MassEffect'', ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'', ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'', and ''VideoGame/DiabloIII''. Basically, if the game contains a female Brit, she's either voiced by Black or Creator/JenniferHale.²²She also plays a mean guitar.²²------²!!This actress provides examples of:²²* AwesomeMcCoolname: A giver of these: She named her sons Odin and Viggo.²%% * TheCastShowOff: ²%% ** The lizard tongue trick from "Won't Get Fooled Again". ²%% ** Even though the Sebacean language sounds like someone playing dialogue in reverse, it's actually Claudia speaking backwards.²%% ** It only comes up occasionally in her roles, (such as Crichton's dream sequence in "Revenging Angel") but she has quite the singing voice as well. ²%% * FanNickname: Particularly among ''Farscape'' fans, the [[RavenHairIvorySkin Raven-Haired Goddess]].²%% * FakeBrit: So often used that many viewers usually don't know that she's an Aussie.²%% * TheGunslinger: Typifies most of her on-screen characters.²%% * HellbentForLeather: Quite a few of her roles.²%% * RealLifeRelative: In ''Dragon Age: Inquisition'' her character Morrigan's son Kieran is voiced by her actual son, Odin.²!Film Roles²* 2000 ''Film/PitchBlack'' as Sharon 'Shazza' Montgomery ²* 2002 ''Film/QueenOfTheDamned'' as Pandora²* 2011 ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' as Angelique²* 2012 ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueDoom'' as Cheetah²* 2012 ''WesternAnimation/StrangeFrame'' as Parker C.
