Canadian-Armenian Actress to be Featured in ABC’s ‘Lost’

HOLLYWOOD–Canadian-Armenian actress Anne Nahabedian just finished shooting several episodes of ABC’s hit TV show ‘Lost,’ airing Wednesdays at 10. Nahabedian is one of the hottest Canadian actors living and working in Los Angeles today. Anne has guest starred on some of the hottest series on network television and as a result is beginning to receive a lot of attention on and off screen. Audiences will next see Anne in the third season of the hit ABC series Lost playing "Amira" (Episode "Enter 77") which will air March 7th 2007. Recently Anne guest starred on the number one series CSI playing "Officer Linda Mendosa" and in the two-part season finale of The Closer (cable’s highest rated series) starring opposite Kyra Sedgwick and directed by Kevin Bacon. Mr. Bacon personally tested Anne and within an hour she landed the coveted role. And last year, Anne guest-starred on NBC’s Law and Order: Criminal Intent opposite Vincent D’Onofrio. Prior to heading off to Los Angeles and New York, Anne worked extensively in Canada. It all started with a guest starring role on the Ridley Scott executive produced series The Hunger (TMN) opposite Anthony Michael Hall in 1999 and Anne hasn’t since stopped working. Selected credits include, The Grid (FOX, BBC), Naked Josh (Showcase/Oxygen), Sue Thomas F.B.Eye (CTV/PAX) and This is Wonderland (CBC). However, Anne is still recognized as the Claritin Girl in the 2003 commercial that aired extensively and the subject of numerous marketing case studies. Not just another pretty face, Anne is a Meisner trained actor having studied under both Jacqueline McClintock and Ron Stetson of the famed NYC: Neighborhood Playhouse. But Anne’s best training came at age 17 when she joined the Canadian Armed Forces and served three years in the Navy. Anne was actually the second woman to train as a BOSN (helmsman, demolition, small arms, firefighting, drug busts, rescue at sea and chemical warfare). Not only was she the youngest member on-board the HMCS Nipigon (Canada’s first combat ready warship to employ women) but Anne was also awarded the distinguished metal for serving 180 days of NATO, which is a rare and distinguished accomplishment. After that, Anne attended Concordia University in Montreal and majored in the most un-Hollywood subject of them all, Accounting. With all of this training, it’s pretty incredible that Anne is also fluent in five languages, French, Spanish, Armenian, German and English. Anne was raised in Montreal and currently divides her time between New York City and Los Angeles.
