This is a very weird sort of typecasting

Tuesday night's House had a guest star that looked very familiar to me, so this morning I looked her up. It's Azura Skye.

On House, Skye played a young woman who believed she could talk to the dead. On Buffy, Skye played a young woman who could see the future, and knew the date of her own death. She then came back as a ghost (except it wasn't really her, it was the First).

Psychic Dead Girl. I'm thinking that's the most specific typecasting in television history.
