January 1: Happy Birthday to ... Anna Brewster ...

If you have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens (and if you haven’t why not?) you will be familiar with Anna Brewster. In the movie she plays Bazine Netal. Bazine Netal is a take-no-prisoners, tough-as-they-come bounty hunter. She’s a master of disguise and cares about no one but herself.

Born in 1986 in Birmingham, England, Anna appeared on screen long before the Star Wars gig, having been in a number of UK TV series including Nearly Famous (the British equivalent of Fame), Material Girl and The Tudors.

She is also a model and has appeared in a number of campaigns including Tod's No Code "London Calling" in 2013. Fashion is a passion.

No news yet on what Anna’s next project will be but if you’d like to know more about her and her inspiration check out the video.

Happy Birthday Anna!
