Farentino is the star of the upcoming Sci-Fi Channel drama, Eureka, and when shes not memorizing her lines of dialogue, shes busy working on her degree in molecular biology.
She decided to get the degree years ago when she started visiting Third World countries to drop off medical supplies and felt she needed a skill that would actually help more than just being an actress dropping off medical supplies.
Farentino has scooped up the academic units slowly in between acting stints on shows like NYPD Blue, Hooperman and Las Vegas but says shes less than a year away from having her bachelors degree.
That is, unless Eureka becomes a hit when it debuts July 25.
