Eliza Dushku takes the No. 6 spot on Nerdage’s list of actresses with geek appeal.  Dushku finished up her role as Echo on “Dollhouse” in 2010, as the Joss Whedon drama finished up its run after 27 episodes.  Dushku previously starred as Faith on the Whedon series “Angel” and “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.”  She also starred as Tru Davies from 2003-2005 on the series “Tru Calling.”

She’s also been in multiple films, including “Sex and Breakfast,” “Bottle Shock” and “The Alphabet Killer.”  She appeared in “Bring it On” in 2000, and Kevin Smith’s “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” in 2001.   In 2009, rumors circulated that she might play DC Comics’ Wonder Woman, though she said she thought that was mostly wishful thinking from fans.   Her name has also been mentioned in connection with a potential third “Ghostbusters” film.
