Serinda Swan – Emily
Posted on 18 June 2011
Serinda Swan is one of the hottest new actresses in Hollywood and one of the sexiest women to ever come out of Canada – period. This Vancouver native was most recently seen in Disney’s “Tron: Legacy.” In “Creature”, Serinda plays Emily who is engaged to Nile, (Serinda’s real-life boyfriend Mechad Brooks), an on-leave Navy Seal.
What starts out as a fun getaway to New Orleans, soon turns into a nightmarish fight to survive in the swamps of Louisiana. As the brutal locals target Emily hoping that ‘Lockjaw,’ (As the Creature is known), will accept her as his latest sacrificial bride.
Serinda (named after a Tibetan flute) has built an impressive film and TV resume, already appearing in Chris Columbus’ blockbuster “Percy Jackson and The Olympians” as Aphrodite (she originally auditioned for Medusa). As well as a re-occurring role as tough-as-nails bounty hunter Erica Reed on the TV Series, “The Breakout Kings”. Her guest-starring roles have included “Hawaii Five-O”, “Supernatural”, “Psych”, “Blood Ties”, “Smallville” and “Reaper”. (BTW, this isn’t the first time Serinda has had to deal with a water based and mysterious creature, she was also in the TV movie, ‘Beyond Loch Ness!’)
No stranger to the camera, Swan has been acting since the tender age of three. She got her first break and the opportunity of a lifetime, by being hand picked by director Joel Schumacher to star in the film “Cousins”. Since then she has appeared in over a dozen commercials, including Milky Way, Macy’s, Much Music, Absolute Poker (where she was the named their spokesperson) and as one of the faces of Guess watches. Her exotic looks, a mix of Spanish, Scottish, Irish and English decent catapulted her success in the fashion industry. She’s modeled for famous labels Dorinha Jeans, Miss Sixty, Diesel, Kusuiko, Aritzia and Venus Swimwear. It’s that undeniable beauty that has not only gained attention on the big screen, but has also secured her multiple shoots in Maxim magazine. Recently Serinda was ranked as one of the “Top 100” most beautiful women by Sports Illustrated magazine.
When she’s not burning up the pages of Maxim or on location, she’s an avid surfer and comic book fan. Naturally athletic, Serinda has 13 years as an accomplished gymnast under her belt, which helps when she has to learn her choreographed fight scenes. That and the Krav Maga (hand-to-hand combat style used by Israeli special forces) she picked up in training for one of her most popular TV roles.
Serinda Swan is currently in the process of completing her latest movie with Paul Wesley and Billy Bob Thornton.
