Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) may look like she just stepped out of a fashion magazine but she's a force to be reckoned with. She was affiliated with the IRA for 14 years, but ran afoul of her old organization because she didn't like being told what to do. She has since joined Michael's team, using her skills in explosives, lock picking, tracking, weapons, and hand-to-hand combat to make a living.
Fiona is definitely a shoot first and ask questions later kind of gal with a fearless nature that’s both enticing and dangerous. When Michael was dumped, battered and unconscious, in Miami, Fiona was called since she was still listed as his only emergency contact from when they were romantically involved years ago in Ireland.
Michael and Fiona tried to rekindle what they once had, but when Michael made a deal to go under deep cover for the CIA, Fiona realized their life together might never be what she hoped. Now Fiona works as a bounty hunter, with her new boyfriend, but no matter what she does, she can’t seem to keep Michael Westen out of her life for long.
Gabrielle Anwar stars as Fiona in the USA Network original series BURN NOTICE.
Born in Berkshire, England, the accomplished actress has over 45 film and television performances to her credit in both Europe and the U.S., including her breakout film "Scent of a Woman," where she was whisked off her feet into an acclaimed tango with Al Pacino.
Anwar has enthralled in a vast array of diverse characters, including the blind diving horse circus performer in Disney's biopic "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken;" the risque royal in Showtime's "The Tudors;" the supercilious counterpart to Noah Wyle in TNT's "The Librarian: Return To King Solomon's Mines;" the fatal object of desire in "Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead;" the regal Queen Anne in "The Three Musketeers;" the expert party girl in BBC's adaptation of Mortimer's "Summer's Lease;" and the coquette pursuing Dermot Mulroney and Hope Davis in the independent feature "Happy Together."
With three children, a canine, feline, and equine menagerie, an art studio, a yoga practice, a garden, a green lifestyle, and a slew of literature in the works, Anwar has no free time.
