CSI: NY's Melina Kanakaredes: Get Ready for More Rambo Stella

The television landscape is full of tough female cops, and Wednesday's episode of CSI: NY proves that Detective Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes) deserves to be counted among the toughest.

"We're always in danger, but Stella has this bizarre empowerment," Kanakaredes tells TVGuide.com. "She almost died in Season 2 by someone she cared about. Now, she's fearless about life-or-death situations. It's like Rambo Stella."

In Wednesday's episode (10/9c, CBS), Kanakaredes and her character will have to live up to that moniker. "Literally, I am getting my head bashed in at the bottom of a pool by this bad guy," Kanakaredes says of some of the episode's more perilous moments for Stella. "I flip over in a car and I'm upside-down. I'm very proud; I did all my own stunts. I pinched a nerve hanging upside-down in a harness. It was one of those moments where I was like, 'I am not acting here.'"
