Some women have sultry names like Scarlett, Chanel and Natalia. Others have to make up for the lack of a boner inducing first name by being surprise sexy, as is the case with the magnificent Merle Dandridge. Born in Okinawa, Japan to a black dad and Korean mom, Merle moved back to the USA when her military dad got reassigned. After dominating the Chicago theater scene, she made her onscreen debut in the TV movie The Edge (2003), before hitting the soaps on All My Children and Guiding Light, all while voicing resistance fighter Alyx Vance in the Half Life video games. Sticking with TV work, Merle played Eli's wife Rita Roosevelt on Sons of Anarchy, cable news anchor Maria Guerrero on The Newsroom, and Trag leader Vega on Star-Crossed. After a long turn as paramedic Gwen Gaskin on Night Shift, Merle finally showed some skin in the TV series Greenleaf. The Greenleaf family collectively owns a massive church in Memphis, where a good deal corruption goes down, in this soap opera from Oprah Winfrey. When estranged journalist daughter Grace comes back to investigate the mysterious death of her daughter, a good deal of this dirt is uncovered much to the rest of the family's dismay. The show's saving grace is that Merle shows off her bangin’ bod a couple times, including when she strips down to her black bra and panties before taking a shower, as well as after sex with former NBA star Rick Fox. We get a great look at Merle’s smooth, sexy stomach and captivating cleavage! This Greenleaf star might just leave you with redpalm! While she's been playing Kim Hammond in The Flight Attendant lately, she is set to reprise her role as Marlene, the character she voiced in The Last of Us videogames in HBO's TV adaptation. We know Miss Dandridge has a dandy of a body, we just need Merle to unfurl!
