Rhona Mitra Biography
- Mitra was born in Paddington, London, England, the daughter of Antony, who is a cosmetic surgeon, and Nora Mitra. She has an older and a younger brother. Her father is of Bengali Indian and English descent, and her mother is Irish. In 1984, when Mitra was eight, her parents divorced, and she was sent to boarding school. She spent several years at two different schools, including Roedean, but Mitra claims she was eventually expelled from both of them. Mitras first main role came as Scott Wolf s illicit love interest on "Party of Five" (1994). In 2000, Mitra had a small, key role in the film Hollow Man (2000), as the rape victim of Kevin Bacon , an incident that drives his character insane. She had a main role in the medical drama "Gideons Crossing" (2000), as "Dr. Alejandra Ollie Klein". Mitra then had roles in Ali G Indahouse (2002) ; Sweet Home Alabama (2002) ; Stuck on You (2003), and leading roles in Highwaymen (2004) and Spartacus (2004) . Mitra appeared in the final season of "The Practice" (1997) as "Tara Wilson", and continued that role into its spin-off "Boston Legal" (2004), but left not long into the second season. In 2005, Mitra played the role of "Kit McGraw" during Season 3 of "Nip/Tuck" (2003). Mitra then went on to appear in Skinwalkers (2006), The Number 23 (2007) and Shooter (2007/I). In 2008, Mitra starred in the lead role of the science fiction/action film Doomsday (2008) as "Major Eden Sinclair", and, in 2009, went on to star in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009) as "Sonja", the daughter of the powerful vampire elder, "Viktor" (played by Bill Nighy).

Rhona Mitra Trivia and Facts
- Went to Roedean, an all-girls school in Brighton, East Sussex, but was expelled from it, then from another boarding school. According to Rhona, "I was kicked out for taking a sixth-formers car and driving it down to the local boys school. I was only 14. I left stuffing under my bedsheets but one of my friends told on me and the headmistress tracked me down. They put me in this room with bars on the windows to punish me. I was stuck in there for a whole week with just a rosary for comfort, having my dinner brought in on trays. The only time I got out was to say confession to the school priest. After that, they booted me out. Then at the next school the other girls used to blame me whenever they got caught for something, so all the parents wrote in and said they didnt want me at the school. I crammed my exams in London and did fine."
