Biography on Showcase

Anna Silk (Bo)

Before playing "Bo" on Lost Girl, Anna Silk is perhaps best known for her role as the caustic “Deb” -- the cantankerous flight attendant in the Nicoderm commercials. She divides her time between the big and small screen and has spent the past four years in Los Angeles where one of her fondest roles was playing a hit woman in the film, Stacking Chips. Her film credits also include Breakfast with Scot, Do Not Bend, Where the Truth Lies, and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

On the small screen, Silk has had various roles in popular shows in the United States and in Canada. She guest-starred as Jennifer Love Hewitt’s beautiful best friend in The Ghost Whisperer and portrayed the murdering wife in ‘Til Death Do Us Part. Silk also has spent many notable hours on the small screen in Canada with roles in Angela’s Eyes and Puppets Who Kill. She made a memorable guest appearance as “Suzie” on Billable Hours, the “furry” who falls for the company mascot. Most recently, she reprised her role as “Cassidy”, the sultry love interest to the lead on Being Erica – a role for which she was honored with a 2010 Gemini Award nomination.

She’s thrilled to be back for Season 3 of Lost Girl as “Bo” is one of her favorite roles to-date.
