Rhona Mitra

Rhona Mitra (born August 9, 1976) is a British actress, sometimes credited as Rona Mitra.

Mitra was born in Paddington, London, England, the daughter of Nora and Antony Mitra, a cosmetic surgeon. Her father is part Indian and part English; her mother is Irish. In 1984, when Mitra was eight, her parents divorced and, as part of an overall lifestyle change, she was sent to boarding school. Several years passed at two different all-girls schools, including Roedean, but Mitra was eventually expelled from both of them. She has been quoted as saying: "I was kicked out [of Roedean] for taking a sixth-former's car and driving it down to the local boys' school. I was only 14. I left stuffing under my bed sheets but one of my friends told on me and the headmistress tracked me down. They put me in this room with bars on the windows to punish me. I was stuck in there for a whole week with just a rosary for comfort, having my dinner brought in on trays. The only time I got out was to say confession to the school priest. After that, they booted me out. Then at the next school the other girls used to blame me whenever they got caught for something, so all the parents wrote in and said they didn't want me at the school. I crammed my exams in London and did fine."

In 2000, Mitra had a small, non-speaking part as a victim of the title role villain in the film Hollow Man. She appeared in the final season of The Practice playing Tara, and continued that role into its spin-off Boston Legal, but left not long into the second season. She also appeared as the second live action model for Lara Croft, the lead character in Eidos Interactive's Tomb Raider video game series. Mitra was ranked #46 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2001.[3] In 2005, she had a recurring role of Kit McGraw during Season 3 of Nip/Tuck.
