Karen Cliche (pronounced "Kleesh") (b. 1976) plays Baylin in the Sci Fi Channel Flash Gordon series.

Cliche has appeared in a number of Canadian science-fiction/fantasy TV series, including Big Wolf on Campus, Adventure Inc., Vampire High and Mutant X. In fact, Cliche says that she's grown used to playing science-fiction roles: "Now when I play regular human roles, I'm like, 'Oooh, where are my superpowers?' I find it kind of boring just to play a regular human girl." [1]

In an interview, Cliche said that she's doing her own stunts on Flash Gordon:

I absolutely love action scenes. It's so challenging and such an adrenaline rush, because you know that if you miss your timing on one punch... ow. It's such a test of coordination and skill. Women don't often get to showcase their physical strength, and I love to be able to do that. So I do all the fighting in my shows, with the exception of high falls or gymnastic moves that I would look ridiculous doing... or kill myself! [2]
