Gabrielle Anwar (born 4 February 1970) is an English actress. She is known for her role as Margaret Tudor on The Tudors, for dancing the tango with Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman, and for her role as Fiona Glenanne on USA’s Burn Notice.
Anwar was born in Laleham, Surrey. Her mother, Shirley Hills, is an actress, and her father, Tariq Anwar, is an award-winning Muslim film producer and editor. Her paternal grandmother was an Austrian Jew, while her paternal grandfather was Indian. Anwar attended Laleham C of E Primary and Middle School from 1975 to 1982; an end-of-term St Trinian’s sketch in the school concert of 1982 gave an early indication of her theatrical leanings. She studied drama and dance at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in London.
