Biography

After making herself known with a seductive tango opposite Al Pacino in "Scent of a Woman" (1992), actress Gabrielle Anwar worked steadily ever since in both her native England and in America. Once she had broken into the U.S. market, Anwar made appearances in "The Three Musketeers" (1993) and the docudrama "In Pursuit of Honor" (HBO, 1995) before delivering a bold turn in the mystery thriller "Innocent Lies" (1995). Following co-leading roles in rather forgettable movies like "The Grave" (1996) and "Sub Down" (1997), she turned in an adept dramatic performance as an American who falls for Fidel Castro in the true-to-life drama "My Little Assassin" (Lifetime, 1999). While starring on several notable mystery dramas like "A Case of Evil" (USA, 2002) and "Mary Higgins Clark's Try to Remember" (ION Television, 2004), Anwar finally began gaining notice with a strong turn as the doomed Princess Margaret in "The Tudors" (Showtime, 2007-2010). But she became a bankable star with her portrayal of the violent, gun-running, but ultimately soft-hearted IRA member Fiona Glenanne on the hit spy series, "Burn Notice" (USA, 2007- ), which offered Anwar one of her most entertaining and thoroughly satisfying performances to date.
