Putting tech-obsessed actress Janina Gavankar to the test

Culture
[MUSIC] Hi I'm Joan Solsman, CNet's digital media reporter. I'm here with Janina Gavankar. You might recognize her from True Blood. She played Luna the shapeshifter and also from NBC's Mysteries of Laura where she plays detective Meredith Bose. We're going to do a rapid fire Q & A to test your tech cred.>> Tech cred. Okay fine, yes.>> [LAUGH] Let's go.>> So I saw 20 questions.>> 20, okay fine.>> But I think you'll be all right.>> All right, we'll see.>> You can have three passes.>> Okay.>> If there are some that are too hard. Basically their either or questions and you have to say which one you prefer or identify with. All right, so first. Star Wars or Star Trek? Star Trek. Alright. Followup question. K. Ok. Kirk or Picard? Picard. Okay, why? Because he's, he's so classy. Alright what about Batman or Superman? Okay that is so hard Which versions? I'm gonna tell you an embarrassing story. [LAUGH] So there was nobody on TV that looked even close to me that I could identify with. Except Teri Hatcher was kind of very tan. So I thought that she looked. [LAUGH] I don't know. I got my hair cut to look like hers. And my first AOL handle was WannabeLois. [LAUGH] So I guess I have to choose Superman. But then, the Dark Knight is a really good. Fight for that. So it's almost a toss up, but Superman. It's a toss up, but yeah, I guess Superman in this regard. So, follow up. Superman's dad, Jarelle, or Paw Kent? Paw Kent. Paw Kent. Yeah, okay. Yeah, western. I'm from Julius, Illinois. So, okay. DC or Marvel? Oh, God! These are so hard! Marvel, they're doing more interesting stuff right now in my opinion. But you were on a show based on DC Universe. I was. Android or iOS? IOS. But only because it's just in my pocket right now. Right. I could change at any moment. Theory of the moment, iOS. Okay. Facebook or Twitter? I can't say either. I find them to be very different and equally important. So pass. Pass. Steve Jobs or Steve Wozniak? Jobs. Unicode or ASCII? Asky. My last Twitter icon was like a half asky. I took like, I did this photo shoot and I took my face I like morphed them together in Photoshop so it was like an echo of me in asky. Dumbledore or Gandolf? Gandolf. Gandolf all the way. Which one? The gray or the white? That's for you. That's for me? I like the gray. Why? Because, I don't know, I like the old school stuff better. I like it a little old school. [LAUGH] Alright, whatever. PC gaming or console gaming? Console. Oh, I'm so sorry to anyone who's a PC gamer, no judgement. But on console, I'm like, I don't care, it's all about the game. So I would play it on PC. Well, a follow up Playstation or XBox? Irrelevant. Irrelevant. It's all about the game. It's all about the game. Sonic or Mario? Mario. It's me Mario, yeah Mario. Master Chief or Gordon Freeman? Gordon Freeman. Old school shuffling zombies or new school fast zombies? Even though the shuffling makes sense It does make sense. But we don't know what's going to cause a Zombie Apocalypse so if rage is the thing that What am I referencing? 28 days later? There's a lot of zombies. Yeah. Fast zombies. Fast zombies. I think that it makes more sense in my brain that they're shuffley, but I think that the world can have both. So pass. There's room in the world for all zombies. There's room in the world for any kind. You know, we're zombie inclusive. We want you to feel very included in whatever zombie you'll turn in to. We accept all of you. And you passed! That's it? That's it. You did a great job. Bull! [LAUGHTER] No, there's no mic to toss. Thank you. Oh gosh! [UNKNOWN], I'm [UNKNOWN] for cnet.
