Hometown: Melbourne, Australia, according to her Wikipedia entry.
Best Known For: Torv has a leading role on the Fox science fiction drama Fringe as a buttoned-down FBI agent and glammed up for a guest appearance in HBO's World War II miniseries The Pacific as an actress selling war bonds.
Humble Beginnings: Torv appeared on the BBC series Mistresses and voiced the main character in the video game Heavenly Sword.
Obligatory Edgy Stuff: An aunt was married for years to NewsCorp boss Rupert Murdoch, arguably the single most destructive human being in the world through the effects of his right-wing media machine. Not her fault or any reflection on her, of course.
Esquire named her a Woman We Love.)
