I was wondering where is this image from? Is it from a TV series or is it from some movie? The gif can be found here (I didn't include it, you will see why if you have a look at it) so I split the frames and included a still image here.


Who is the actress? What is she acting as and what is her role? I have tried searching this image in Google Image Search and shots were all the same. No luck whatsoever.

This highly looks like some type of movie or TV series. I was just interested in what it was when I was google image searching an anime picture that I came across on Facebook.

Does anyone know in which TV series or movie she did appear?

I also tried cropping on her face too. No luck. –  Izumi-reiLuLu Jul 11 '14 at 14:23
Oh yeah and here are all the still shots > gif-explode.com/?explode=http://media.giphy.com/media/… –  Izumi-reiLuLu Jul 11 '14 at 14:25
I just wanted to say this is a great example of how to do an identify question. You provided as much information as possible and it is a very specific scene. Plus you posted a little about why you were looking for it. This is how they should all be. –  Kevin Howell Jul 11 '14 at 14:53
Lemme just say the guys in the background don't move AT ALL. That's really strange to me. Even the film grain in the background doesn't change. I wonder if they used a still frame as the background for a green screen? I've done that in plenty of YouTube videos. –  BrettFromLA Jul 11 '14 at 20:01
I think this technique of animating stills is called cinemagraph (or at least it's very similar to it). There are some cool examples online. –  Walt Jul 12 '14 at 6:10

This is actress Lyndie Greenwood in her role as Sonya on the TV show Nikita. This picture is taken from episode 7 in season 3 ("Intersection"); she's bleeding in the GIF because her "kill switch" was activated. See also the top picture here.
