Anna Silk is a Canadian television, film, and theatre actress.


Silk was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. The daughter of Peter, a British academic, and Ilkay Silk, a prominent actor and playwright, 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 has one son, Sam, born in May 2013.


Anna Silk is recognized by many Canadians for her performance as "Deb", a stressed-out flight attendant trying to quit smoking in the NicoDerm nicotine patch 2006 television commercial, "Irritable".[1]

Film work includes Catye in the comedy short Do Not Bend (2007); and Grace, one of the assassins in Assassins Tale (2013). Television roles include 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); 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."

In 2008, Silk landed the protagonist role of Bo Dennis in the pilot for Lost Girl. The series was given the green-light for a first season on August 13, 2009.

Silk found out she was pregnant during production of the finale episode of Season 3 and revealed the good news in the Showcase pre-show special leading into the premiere of the third season, Lost Girl ConFAEdential. On June 4, 2013, Showcase and Prodigy Pictures announced the start of production on Season 4; and on June 20, 2013, Silk announced via Twitter that she was ready to return to work on the show.[2]

Anna Silk announced that Season 5 would be the final season of Lost Girl in a special Showcase video message to fans on August 25, 2014:

"Hi, I'm Anna Silk, Bo from Lost Girl, and I wanted to share this announcement with you, our fans, first. After five incredible seasons, we have decided that it's time for Bo's journey to come to an epic conclusion. And while endings are always sad, this one comes with a tremendous gift. To deliver the most powerful season yet, we super-sized to sixteen episodes that will air in two parts. So while we might be saying goodbye, we'll be doing it with a bang. Being part of the Lost Girl family has truly been a gift, and you guys have been here since day one. So, on behalf of everybody here at Lost Girl, and everybody who has helped bring this series to life, I thank you. And I will see you when Season Five premieres on Showcase." [3]

Silk won the "Fan Choice Award for Favourite Canadian Screen Star" by the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards.[4]

Silk's 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;[5] and one of its "Favorite TV couples of 2013" by CNN.[6]

"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 (2013)

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.
