Actress, Global Citizen Ambassador
Tamzin Merchant was born in the UK but spent part of her childhood in Dubai. She attended Windlesham School and Brighton College. She had been planning to study at Nottingham University when she was cast as Georgiana Darcy in the 2005 film Pride & Prejudice. She deferred entry to university to work on TV projects in the UK and, in the summer of 2007, filmed a role in the American ensemble drama Radio Cape Cod (2008). In addition to acting, she has contributed poetry to Platforms Magazine, an online arts magazine. Merchant has been an avid supporter of The Global Poverty Project since 2008, and, as of 2014, has become a Global Citizen Ambassador. Merchant currently stars as Anne Hale on the WGN America series Salem.
