        Stana Katic of "Castle" fame would be a perfect Honor if she can do an English accent.

        I agree for the most part, but the actress needs to be someone who can act the part, so this makes it someone who is skilled at acting.

      Given her many faces, exposure and depth, I also would like to see Alicia Coppola considered. She already looks good in a Navy Uniform on NCIS.

      I think Lucy Lawless has the personality for Honor, (thinking of her as Xena) but she is older looking soo..Weber said recently he mostly just wants someone who's personality fits.
