SHE / HER
Anna Silk was born and raised in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. At the age of six, she made her stage debut playing a squirrel in a local production of Hansel and Gretel. Having grown up in the seats of the local theaters watching her mother direct stage plays, it was no wonder that Anna went on to pursue a career in acting.
Anna’s breakthrough role was as the lead character, Bo, on the Syfy/Showcase hit series Lost Girl. The series follows the life of Bo, a succubus learning to control her supernatural abilities and discovering the truth about her origins. In 2015, Silk won Fan Choice at the Canada Screen Awards and was nominated for a 2015 Golden Maple Award for her work on the show. The series, which now airs in over 100 countries, premiered to record-breaking numbers and rave reviews.
Prior to Lost Girl, Silk was perhaps best known for her role as Erica’s love interest ‘Cassidy’ on the popular Canadian series Being Erica, a role for which she received a Gemini nomination. And most Canadians will not forget Silk as the cantankerous flight attendant in the popular Nicoderm commercials.
Silk divides her time between the big and small screens. Her film credits also include Assassin’s Tale, Breakfast with Scot, Do Not Bend, Where the Truth Lies and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
On the small screen, Silk has played various roles in popular shows in the United States and in Canada. Appearances include Ghost Whisperer, Til Death Do Us Part, TNT’s acclaimed miniseries The Company, and Angela’s Eyes. Most recently, she appeared as the quirky Kevin on the highly popular Wynonna Earp, and as an assassin on CBS’s summer hit Blood and Treasure.
Silk currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband Seth and their two boys Sam and Levi.
