For Lyndie Greenwood the notion that women are the weaker sex is not reflected in either her role as the tough, combat-trained, monster chaser Jenny Mills on the TV series Sleepy Hollow or in what she says is her "natural affinity for kung fu." Greenwood trained in the martial art for almost 10 years and says it helped her prepare for the role as one of several warrior women in the series, which has developed a cult following among fans of action-packed supernatural thrillers.

As a teenager, Greenwood, who was born in Toronto, was intrigued by the lifestyle of an old boyfriend's sister. "She studied tai chi, and she was a jeweler who went all over the world to search for rare gems she used to make jewelry. I just thought she was the coolest person," Greenwood says. "And because I thought she was so awesome, I wanted to follow in her footsteps and start training in martial arts. But I thought tai chi might be a little slow for me, so I chose kung fu."
