Anna Torv is an American actor who gained a lot of recognition from her role in Fringe as Olivia Dunham. She is now gearing up for a new role unlike anything she has ever played before and will open up a lot more opportunities for her in her career.
Torv is going to return to TV after Fringe's conclusion. The TV show aired for over five years as a hit science fiction series. Now Anna Torv is headed to an HBO drama series called Open. There is still no information for when this TV show will be finished and then released.
In Open, Torv will play a yoga instructor who has been in a long-term relationship with another woman in the series named Holly, played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Playing a lesbian character is a new challenge for the actor but one she claims to be ready for. Her character's relationship will be tampered with when she meets the mysterious Grace and this begins to cause problems for her long-term relationship.
This is a new and exciting role for Anna Torv and it will be something fresh after seeing her in Fringe for over five consecutive years, showing her in a role that she has never performed before and also a far cry away from science fiction.
