Sea­son 2 SACB3 (*193) 23:30 Sci-fi

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIE MENU -

Au­drey Marie An­der­son is prov­ing that just be­cause you’re a tough butt-kicker doesn’t mean you can’t look fab­u­lous and have to have bro­ken nails. The 42year-old for­mer model is play­ing Lyla Michaels in sci-fi ac­tion show Ar­row (2012-cur­rent), the di­rec­tor of se­cret gov­ern­ment agency AR­GUS (Ad­vanced Re­search Group United Sup­port). And like her punch-throw­ing char­ac­ter, Au­drey likes keep­ing her pri­vacy…

1 The Texas na­tive jokes that “my

fam­ily hate the spot­light. They don’t want me talk­ing about them at all”. She won’t even say if her sis­ter Nancy is younger or older than her.

2 Her first role was a one-episode

gig as a cop on drama Bev­erly Hills, 90210 (1990-2000), a lot less glam­orous than her day-time job as a model for Ar­mani, GAP and US re­tail giant Tar­get.

3 And while she’d love to grow her

hair a bit longer, Au­drey says that her short look is what gave her her ca­reer. And it ac­tu­ally used to be shorter – her boyfriend gave her a boy-style trim in the early ’90s and she says that “the agen­cies started tak­ing no­tice of me, when I looked like a boy [Laughs]”.

4 She doesn’t mind get­ting her

hands dirty for work – she played Kim Brown in US mil­i­tary-themed ac­tion show The Unit (2006-2009) and was in hor­ror se­ries The Walk­ing Dead (2011cur­rent) as Lily in sea­son 2.

5 While Au­drey is on so­cial me­dia

– @au­d_an­der­son on Twit­ter – she ad­mits to be­ing “su­per care­ful” about post­ing too much info. Fans will find pho­tos of her young son and daugh­ter but never with their faces ex­posed.

6 Her re­la­tion­ship sta­tus is a mys­tery

too, but she adds, “I know my kids are safe while I’m away work­ing.”

Au­drey’s hair was a lot shorter as a model.
