Rhona Natasha Mitra (born 9 August 1976), sometimes credited as Rona Mitra, is an English actress, model and singer. Mitra began her career as a model and first came to prominence as the Lara Croft model between 1997 and 1998. After completing her stint as Lara Croft, she concentrated on acting and is best known for her roles as Holly Marie Begins on the sixth season of Party of Five (1999–2000); as Tara Wilson on the final season of The Practice (2003–2004) and the first and second seasons of Boston Legal (2004–2005); as Detective Kit McGraw on the third season of Nip/Tuck (2005); as Sonja in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009); and as Major Rachel Dalton on Strike Back (2012–September 6, 2013 her final episode). She has a lead role in the upcoming series The Last Ship (2014). --- Mitra was born in Paddington, London, the daughter of Anthony Mitra, a cosmetic surgeon, and Nora Downey. She has a brother, Jason, who is two years older, and a younger brother, Guyan, who is a travel writer for Lonely Planet and The Sunday Times. Her father is of English and Indian descent and her mother is Irish. Her paternal grandfather was from Bengal, India. Mitra played the romantic interest of Christopher Lambert in Beowulf. Her first main role came as Scott Wolf's illicit love interest on Party of Five. In 2000, Mitra had a small role in the film Hollow Man, as a neighbour assaulted by Kevin Bacon's character. She had a main role in medical drama Gideon's Crossing, as Dr. Alejandra 'Ollie' Klein. Mitra then had roles in Ali G Indahouse; Sweet Home Alabama; Stuck on You, and leading roles in Highwaymen and Spartacus. Mitra appeared in the final season of The Practice as Tara Wilson, and continued that role into its spin-off Boston Legal, but left not long into the second season. In 2005, Mitra played the role of Kit McGraw during Season 3 of Nip/Tuck. Mitra then went on to appear in Skinwalkers, The Number 23 and Shooter. In 2008, Mitra starred in the lead role of the science fiction/action film Doomsday as Major Eden Sinclair [sometimes mistakenly named in some databases as being Caryn Peterson], and in 2009 went on to star in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans as Sonja, the daughter of the powerful vampire elder Viktor (played by Bill Nighy). While filming, she grew fond of her vampire fangs, even declining to remove them when they couldn't be seen. "I put those fangs on the first day and I felt they should always have been there; it's strange. So I kept them in through the entire time of shooting, throughout all my dialogue and everything." She also appeared in three episodes of Stargate Universe. Mitra appeared as the live action model for Lara Croft, the lead character in Eidos Interactive's Tomb Raider video game series before Angelina Jolie took the role for the two Tomb Raider films (2001-2003). Mitra was ranked No. 46 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2001. She stars in the 2010 Anders Anderson thriller film Stolen, alongside Josh Lucas, Jon Hamm and James Van Der Beek. She portrayed Claire Radcliff in the 2010 ABC supernatural series The Gates. She played Captain Rachel Dalton on Cinemax's series Strike Back: Project Dawn, replacing Amanda Mealing.
