“The fact is that Leeta is very strong, but in ways that are unpredictable; not wearing-a-uniform kick-ass way that Kira was, certainly, but in an equally profound way.
Leeta didn’t wear her strength in terms of the obvious warrior type. She had an internal strength that I think we can learn a lot of lessons from. It’s sad when people see her as eye candy.”
