Film & Television Actress
When she arrived in Miami to shoot a television series, Gabrielle Anwar didn't expect she'd put down roots. In 2007, she was cast as Fiona Glenanne in the USA Network spy series "Burn Notice." Set in Miami, it gave the actress the opportunity to discover the tropical beach city, but it was meeting her husband, restaurateur, Shareef Malnik, that cemented her future as one of the city's most devoted residents.
She's spent a good deal of this past year, however, away from home in Vancouver, after being cast in the ABC series "Once Upon a Time." "I play Cinderella's evil stepmother. It's a tremendously gratifying role. Rarely have I been afforded the opportunity to delve into such a wicked character. It is surprisingly cathartic."
