Beautiful photos of Angel... of course she is truly beautiful and she has always seemed like a lovely person. I just loved the way she portrayed Gwen. She was a maid, but she was so strong! She stood up to Arthur and even Uther. ...and her clothes! They were so pretty... I guess I just love pretty clothes. The outfit she wore when she met Arthur in the woods. I couldn't find the exact photo I wanted but this is the outfit I mean

I only just heard Angel singing. wow! I mean that girl can sing! I just think it's amazing when you find out that actors who are already talented are really talented singers or painters or something. And I wish I was her color! Here's a photo of her singing.
