The daughter of an ex-hippie and a Canadian football player, Anora Lyn enjoyed a colorful childhood filled with both world peace and touchdowns.

Anora started acting at age eight in a youth musical production of The Wizard of Oz. She continued acting in local and school theater while also competing state championships in both swimming and track. By age thirteen, she had been in more than twelve theatre productions. She had also earned the nickname "Big Bad" (along with an orange belt), as the youngest member of women's Kung Fu club.

Instead of entering the world of sports, Anora followed her other passion, acting. Anora graduated from England's prestigious Guildford School of Acting in 2004, with her Degree in Theater. From there, she headed to Los Angeles, where she continued her acting career. Anora most recently starred along side C. Thomas Howell and John Rhys-Davies in the film Escape.
