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 theatres watching her mother direct, it was no wonder that Anna went on to pursue a career in acting.
Most recently, Anna starred as the lead character ‘Bo’ on the Syfy/Showcase hit series “Lost Girl.” She won Fan Choice at the 2015 Canada Screen Awards and was nominated for a 2015 Golden Maple Award for her work on the show. The series, which 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.
Anna is a mother of two who passionately supports children and women’s rights and is particularly proud to support Plan International Canada’s work for maternal, newborn and child health in developing countries.
