Erica Cerra is a Canadian best known for her starring role as Deputy Jo Lupo in the sci-fi television series Eureka, from 2006-2012.
Erica is credited with featured roles in several television shows including Battlestar Galactica, The Dead Zone, Smallville, The 4400, Huff and The L Word.
She also appeared in major cinematic movie releases including Man About Town with Ben Affleck and Rebecca Romijn, and Blade: Trinity with Wesley Snipes.
In three separate roles, Erica played a vampire or a vampire-related character. In Season 3 of The L Word she was a lesbian and academically-minded vampirologist. In Blade:Trinity she was a vampire wannabe, with aspirations of becoming one.
In an episode of Smallville she was featured in a trio of ranking members of a vampire sorority servicing the chapter president, whom herself was a vampiress. In sharp contrast to typical vampire portrayals, Erica's character was a pretty girl-next-door-type dressing in preppy shades of pastels, but with large fangs.
