Jewel Belair Staite (born June 2, 1982 in White Rock, British Columbia, Canada) is a Canadian actress, best known for her role in Firefly and the subsequent film Serenity. She also portrays the character of Dr. Jennifer Keller on Stargate Atlantis and in the fifth season she will be upgraded to the main cast. The youngest of seven children, Staite modelled as a child and has acted since age six. She attended the Vancouver Film School and worked at the Vancouver Youth Theatre. Staite has worked with the Dyslexia Foundation and several AIDS charities. Staite is perhaps best known for her role as Kaylee Frye in the short-lived science fiction/western television series Firefly and its subsequent 2005 film, Serenity. She also wrote a chapter in the book Finding Serenity, called "Kaylee Speaks: Jewel Staite On Firefly". She also played Heidi Gotts, the antagonist in the TV series Wonderfalls, which, like Firefly, was canceled by FOX. She currently plays the role of "acting head of medicine" Dr. Jennifer Keller in the Stargate SG-1 spinoff Stargate Atlantis, making her the third actor from the Firefly series to move on to appear in a Stargate series (the first being Adam Baldwin and the second being Morena Baccarin), and the second to take a recurring role. She replaces Paul McGillion (Dr. Carson Beckett) whose character died in the episode "Sunday". She also played the Wraith child Ellia in the Stargate Atlantis episode "Instinct".
