NATALIE COOK , played by Cameron Diaz
This platinum blond with pale blue eyes is optimistic, starry-eyed, shy and somewhat goofy. A deceptively-brilliant blusher, Natalie has no idea that she looks like a supermodel, and no idea that she has enough charisma for three. Her mom was a large-animal veterinarian; her dad was the author/editor of The Cook Anthology of Science Fiction. Natalie was the class nerd: complete with a Princess Leia honeybun hairdo, glasses, and a mouthful of braces. She got her Ph.D. from MIT — by correspondence. She’s worked as a research scientist at the Swedish National Academy, a U.S. Navy test pilot, and a Lincoln-Mercury spokes-model. Natalie has a passion for anything on wheels. She’s brilliant at road racing, helicopter piloting, and motocross. Her favorite song is “Soul Man.” Natalie resides in a little white bungalow on a canal in Venice, California. She drives a red Ferrari Modena, license plate number 924-WNP. Natalie can’t dance to save her life, but she’s extremely proficient in kung fu and several other martial arts, as are fellow Angels Dylan Sanders and Alex Munday.
DYLAN SANDERS, a.k.a. HELEN ZASS , played by Drew Barrymore
This auburn-haired, green-eyed wild child is fearless and street-smart. Never having known her parents, Dylan was a rambunctious teenage rebel who graduated with lackluster grades. After that, she did a Kerouac and learned life’s lessons on the road. She had a very brief stint at her local Police Academy, due to assault charges filed for punching out a discipline-happy police sergeant. Since then, Dylan has whiled away her days at odd jobs: bartender, yoga instructor, field guide, rodeo entertainer…you name it, she’s done it. Dylan has a knack for choosing jerks for boyfriends, and she’s been through several. She always finds the good in people, even jerky guys. Dylan is impetuous and has a bad temper, leaping before she looks, but her determination is superhuman. So is her brawling prowess; she’s been known to take out a whole roomful of goons with her hands literally tied behind her back. Her bohemian L.A. pad is complete with lava lamps, incense burners, and a less-than-tidy walk-in closet on Melrose Avenue. She drives an orange-and-white 1969 Camaro convertible, license plate number 716-EKL. WORDS TO LIVE BY: “Don’t let your past hold you back.”
ALEX MUNDAY played by Lucy Liu
Alex is a sophisticated class act, with dark brown eyes and never a blue-black hair out of place. Her parents were professors of philosophy and economics at Harvard. By the time she was 13, Alex had academically eclipsed her parents. She spent the rest of her teenage years abroad, learning levitation with a Tibetan guru; safecracking and bomb defusing with a Parisian double agent; dancing for a time with the Stuttgart Ballet — the usual classical education. An expert fencer and horsewoman, Alex has been a government aerospace engineer and on-call consultant for NASA. She was also an early pioneer in the creation of the laptop computer. Alex is so on top of everything, it’s easy to bore her and hard to keep her amused. No known drawbacks. Smitten with actor Jason Gibbons, she resides in an impeccable loft in downtown Los Angeles. Alex drives a vintage silver Mercedes convertible, license plate number 340-JAN. She worships Martha Stewart, despite the fact that she is cursed in the kitchen.
