Dilshad Vadsaria Guest Stars on Bones

Pakistani-American actress Dilshad Vadsaria guest-starred on last week’s episode of Bones, playing Padme Dalaj, the fiancee of Booth’s (David Boreanaz) brother Jared.

You can watch the full episode over at Hulu (apologies for my inability to embed.) At 6:11: Padme and Jared describe how they met in Karnataka. Points to the writers and Executive Producer Hart Hanson for having the characters travel to South India rather than the more conventional choice of Delhi or Mumbai. Also of note, Padme’s appropriately snarky tone when she replies “I’m third generation American” when Booth remarks that she “speaks English so well.”

I do have to deduct points for both Padme’s pronunciation of Bangalore and the strange choice of the name Padme (which is Persian) over Padma (which is Sanskrit). Plus there’s the Star Wars connection to the name as well.
