Biography

A veteran television performer in her native country of Australia, actress Anna Torv earned her biggest international exposure as the voice and figure model of the character Noriko in the video game "Heavenly Sword. " But her profile blossomed considerably after "Lost" producer J.J. Abrams selected her to play an FBI agent who becomes embroiled in a series of interconnected paranormal events in "Fringe" (Fox, 2008- ). As the dedicated, but ultimately lonely Olivia Dunham, Torv brought a unique presence to a rather complicated role, due namely to the strange goings-on like traveling between parallel universes and confronting her doppelganger. Because of the show's cult success, Torv was able to secure higher profile roles, as she did in the massive World War II miniseries, "The Pacific" (HBO, 2010), which helped expose her undeniable talents to a wider audience.
