50 Sexiest Sci-Fi Characters

Talleah Queen Of Outer Space (1958)

The Sexy Character: Ruler of the planet Venus, Talleah (Zsa Zsa Gabor) reigns over her all-female subjects with a cruel heart – and, presumably, makes sure they all look fabulous in high heels and short skirts.

Hottest Detail
: She’s basically an alien version of Marilyn Monroe – festooned in jewels and always in some kind of thigh-flashing ball gown.

Neytiri Avatar (2009)

The Sexy Character: An alien warrior on planet Pandora, Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) is an imposing creature; offhand, catty and cunning.

Basically, anything you can do, Neytiri can do better.

Hottest Detail: Sure she’s blue and, like, huge, but that doesn’t stop Neytiri from being hot – especially as she doesn’t really wear much.

Emma/Anna Dark City (1998)

The Sexy Character: The wife of amnesiac John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell), Emma (Jennifer Connelly) gets caught up in Murdock’s search for his identity and is taken hostage by the mysterious Mr Hand (Richard O’Brien), who does something rather horrible to her.

Hottest Detail:
She’s got one smokin’ voice (opens in new tab) .

Martian Girl Mars Attacks! (1996)

The Sexy Character: She may look like a catwalk model, but this rather sexy creature (played by Lisa Marie Smith) is really a big-brained Martian in disguise - a ruse concocted to infiltrate the White House and kill the American President.

Hottest Detail: The whole point is that she adheres to conventional notions of feminine beauty.

If we didn’t know she was a Martian, we’d be asking for her number.

Diane Dr G & The Bikini Machine (1965)

The Sexy Character: Way before we had the fembots of Austin Powers , this camp sixties classic gave us Dr Goldfoot (Vincent Price), who creates his own army of scantily-clad robots – and among them, the devilishly beautiful Diane (Susan Hart).

Hottest Detail: Any character that spends the entire film walking around in a gold bikini gets our vote.

Katherine Callender First Men In The Moon (1964)

The Sexy Character: In 1899, Katherine Callender (Martha Hyer) accidentally jets off to the moon with inventor Joseph Cavor (Lionel Jeffries) and her fiancé Arnold Bedford (Edward Judd) in a gravity-defying spaceship.

Gigolo Jane A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)
