Australian actress Anna Charmichael Torv was born on June 7, 1979 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia to parents Susan and Hans Torv. She is known to be of Estonian and Scottish descent. A graduate of Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) with a degree in Performing Arts in 2001, it is no wonder why Anna’s inclination to acting grew more passionately. It was in the year 2002 when she finally made it to the television, portraying a minor role in the Australian TV series White Collar Blue. Since her talent in acting was promising, she eventually earned several roles which include roles in TV series Young Lions, Travelling Light, and McLeod’s Daughters. In 2004, she experienced her big break as she was included in the list of cast for the Australian TV drama series The Secret Life of Us. She also played the role Olivia Dunham in the science fiction TV series Fringe where she worked with Joshua Jackson and the rest of the cast. Recently, she appeared on HBO Pilot Open.
To keep her body in prime shape, she always makes it a point to actively work her body by doing outdoor activities. “I love hiking and mountain biking. Since my show is filmed in New York, I’ve been able to go to the Hudson Valley, in upstate New York, on weekends. Recently, friends and I went to a house in the mountains and walked around the lake and swam. Two days of that and you feel great. I wear Blundstones for hiking. They’re like a work boot with a bit of grip, so you can wear them all day,” she said.
As for her diet, she doesn’t practice any but she always makes sure that she’s taking supplements to keep her going. “I’ll swallow a capsule of garlic oil, which is a blood purifier, and an antioxidant, at night,” she shared. “I also take zinc, as well as vitamin C, every now and then. And if I’m about to do something really physical, I’ll take magnesium.”
