Biography

Silk was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. The daughter of Peter, a British academic, and Ilkay Silk, a prominent actor, director, producer, playwright, educator, and Director of Drama at St. Thomas University. Some of Anna's earliest memories were of going to play rehearsals and watching her mother work. Silk appeared in several commercials as a child. She graduated with a B.A. degree from St. Thomas University in 1997. Early theater work includes at least two productions with Theatre St. Thomas: "Seven Menus" and "The Kitchen."

In November 1999, Silk moved to Toronto, Canada, to further her acting career, and during the following decade relocated to Los Angeles, California, USA. She met her future husband, Seth Cooperman, at an actor's workshop in Los Angeles, in 2007. They were engaged in 2009, and married in a civil ceremony in December of the same year. On April 10, 2011, they renewed their vows in a Jewish ceremony in Fredericton after she converted to Judaism. Silk gave birth to a son, Sam Cooperman, in May 2013.

Career

Anna Silk is recognized throughout Canada for playing "Deb", an overstressed flight attendant attempting to quit smoking in the NicoDerm nicotine patch television commercials.

Her television work includes the role of Cassidy Holland in Being Erica, for which she received a 2009 Gemini Awards nomination as "Best Performance by an Actress in a Guest Role, Dramatic Series." Other television roles have included Asia in the Mutant X episode “Within These Walls" (2003); Mindy Lohman in the ’Til Death Do Us Part episode "Storage Unit Murder" (2007); Haylie Wayne in the Ghost Whisperer episode "Big Chills" (2008). Film roles include Grace, one of the assassins in Assassins Tale (2013).

In 2009, Silk landed the lead role of Bo Dennis on Lost Girl. She found out she was pregnant during production of the third season finale episode and broke the news to fans of the series on January 6, 2013, in a Showcase pre-show special leading into the premiere of Season 3. In February 2013, her portrayal of Bo together with Lauren (Zoie Palmer) as same-sex lovers on Lost Girl was declared "Top TV Couple of 2013" by E! Online (E!: Entertainment Television).[1] On June 4, 2013, Showcase and Prodigy Pictures announced the start of production on the fourth season of Lost Girl; and on June 20, 2013, Silk announced via Twitter that she was ready to return to work on the show.[2]

Quotes

"I'm glad that, if, that relationship is presented in a really real and loving way, even thought it's in a crazy fantasy world. That's important. And that's something that's always been important to Zoie and I, who plays Lauren." – Anna Silk, Syfy 20th Anniversary Special

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.
