Torv's most famous role was in Fringe.
Torv, now 40, was virtually unknown until she got the lead role in Fringe, the longtime science fiction series produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the team behind Transformers and Star Trek Reboot Series) and JJ was produced Abrams (you know who he is).  Fringe ran for five seasons and, despite being ripped on schedule on FOX, still developed a cult fanbase. The show, as it were, loomed in the shadow of LOST back and the Abrams connection, and would certainly be fun for fans looking for a show that could distort their minds a bit.
J.J. Abrams could tell right away that she was special when she played Fringe.
Immediately after the audition for the lead role of Olivia Dunham in Fringe by telephone conference in Australia, J.J. Abrams played Torv in the role. It only took three days for the pilot to go into production.
"It was all pretty fast and furious," Torv said in 2009 to Variety . "There was hardly time to put things in order, let alone think about how I wanted to approach the character. After being occupied, she had to quickly hurry to get a visa, and head off to Toronto, where Abrams and his company filmed the pilot.
Torv is Australian.
You would probably never get that from her characters – her American accent is impeccable – but Torv is Australian (see her accent in the above Conan clip, in addition to a Guardians of the Galaxy Chris Pratt sits) 19659015]. Born in Melbourne, she grew up in Gold Coast, a city in the Australian state of Queensland. In 2001, she graduated from the National Institute of Dramatic Art in the Australian city of Kensington, which was classified by THR as the 10th best drama school in the world.
In addition to from Australia, a number of Torv projects (outside Fringe and Mindhunter ) are produced in Australia. In fact, one of her other projects in 2019 was the second season of an Australian political thriller named Secret City in in which she happens to co-star with actor Damon Herriman, who will appear as Charles Manson in the upcoming season Mindhunter Season (and also in Tarantinos Once upon a time in Hollywood) .
She is related to a media mogul.
Torv is not only Australian, but also related to one of the world's most famous Australians – she is the niece of News Corp founder Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch was married to Torv's great-aunt Anna Murdoch Mann for 31 years, the couple had three children, including Lachlan Murdoch, who is considered the heir to the News Corp empire (the whole is very successor).  Her background is a theater actress.
