In The Orville episode “Pria,” when the crew saves a gorgeous blond captain, Pria Lavesque, on a stranded ship and Captain Ed Mercer (Seth MacFarlane) turns on the charm. Ed’s ex-wife Commander Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki) suspects Pria of not being quite what she seems to be. And the next thing you know, Ed is demanding that Pria give back his ship.
Pria is portrayed by Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron who proves she looks beautiful in the past, present and future.
