In the wine country of northern California, 1974 must have been a vintage year -- if not for wine, then certainly for Brande. That's Brande Roderick, who left the vineyards behind three years ago and is now looking to taste the fruits of an acting career in Los Angeles. You may have already seen Brande in the background on Babylon Five (she was an alien) or in Armageddon, in commercials for Dr Pepper, Snickers or the Duke Nukem videogame -- or more recently in featured roles on such television shows as Beverly Hills 90210, Love Boat and Two Guys and a Girl. The roles are getting bigger, and so are her goals.
This text comes from the Playboy site where they talk about Miss April 2000 being in an ad for a Duke Nukem video game. We're not entirely sure which ad/commercial at the moment, but we're trying to track that down. You can check out some more information about Brande at her page on the IMDB site.
In other Duke playmate news... This isn't the first time a Playboy playmate has been involved with Duke. If you're familiar with the Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes art, then you might have recognized the woman at the front of the trio of babes. That's Neriah Davis, who was a Playmate of the month in March of 1994, among other things as being in movies like "The Bikini Car Wash Company" There's more on Neriah at her IMDB page, too.
If we get more information on these important developments, we'll make sure to pass 'em along to you.
