Since being sexy is almost a requirement these days for young stars on soap operas, it’s no surprise that Leven Rambin will undoubtedly win over more than her fair share of male admirers. The All My Children star joins the cast of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles for season 2 as John’s new high school friend (though new doubt they’ll stay just friends for long).

Turning 18 in May, Rambin is sure to remind many viewers of another young blonde former soap star who hit it big in a hit Monday night sci-fi series two short years ago – Hayden Panetierre. Can Rambin duplicate the success and adulation of the indestructible cheerleader? With Rambin’s looks and skills (she has two Daytime Emmy nominations), she’s in the perfect position to be the blonde heroine audiences would most like to save Monday nights.
