The world of showbiz can be a very cut-throat, ruthless world. It can eat you alive without losing any sleep about it. Some people spend their entire lives and go nowhere all in the name of pursuing dreams. You can spend thousands in head shots and hours upon hours in auditions and be no closer than you were when you first tried. And then you have those who are destined to be stars, just something about them screams radiance and the crowds just eat them up. Such is the case for Anna Elizabeth McGrath. She is a graduate of University of Cambridge and the Universitéde Paris II Panthéon-Assas. She has been an accomplished actress since leaving Australia to live out her dreams.

After all, with her deep green eyes, long luxurious red hair and beautiful face, it is hard not to notice her. One of her most recent pieces was a 12 episode web series send-up of a reality show where eight young people vie for a position within the Central Europe Intelligence Agency where Anna plays a senior Field Agent who is actually a double agent.

 Anna, still being young, has made a great name for herself. Her brilliant acting and charming looks have taken her to heights beyond the dreams of the many who have tried before her, the only difference is they faltered where she excelled.
