Brooke Williams is well known for her portrayal of Jennsen in Legend of the Seeker.In the Television Show.
Jennsen Rahl is the full sister of Richard Rahl and the half sister of Darken Rahl. She and Richard have the same mother, but all three share the same father, Panis Rahl.
She is first introduced in season one of Legend of the Seeker, because she is ‘pristinely ungifted,’ meaning that magic has no power over her. Darken Rahl sends Denna, one of his followers, to get Jennsen so that she can be used to retrieve the third Box of Orden, a magical artifact that will give him great power. The tables are turned when Denna and Jennsen are intercepted by Richard, the show ending with Jennsen’s daring journey into Darken Rahl’s inner sanctum to steal the Boxes of Orden already in his possession. Jennsen later appears in two more episodes where her relationships with her brothers are further explored. In “Fever” in particular, Ms. Williams delivers a powerful performance.
