Canadian born actress Anne Bedian didn't start her young career in the arts, but rather in the military as a soldier. Bedian served in the Canadian Armed Forces at the age of 17 as a Bosn, She was one of the first women to enter that trade, which included training for demolitions, small arms, firefighting and chemical warfare. She was the youngest member on board the HMCS Nipigon, the first warship to employ women. Oddly enough in her theatrical acting career playing a variety of roles ranging from cops, psychics, waitresses - she has never portrayed a soldier!However her proficiency for speaking several languages and incredible range of dialects has served her artistic career well. Bedian is fluent in English, French, Armenian, Spanish, German and self-taught reading Hebrew and Russian, and is also skilled at performing roles which require dialects including Middle Eastern and European.Anne began both her Meisner training and her career in her hometown of Montreal, Quebec, then moved to Toronto and then to New York where she furthered her Meisner training with Ron Stetson of the Neighborhood Playhouse, before finally landing in Los Angeles.Bedian can next be seen guest starring as Fatima Al-Harazi in the Season 1 reboot of "Roseanne" - Fatima is Roseanne's new next door neighbor who brings diversity to the Conner neighborhood. You can also find Bedian on the big screen starring in the lead role in Robert Nazar Arjoyan's "I Promised Her Life", a short film currently screening across the country in over 20 film festivals. Bedian plays the leading role of Elena, a grieving Armenian-American mother who defies a centuries-old ritual and tests the limits of tradition at her daughter's funeral. Her performance earned Bedian "Best Actress at Deep In The Heart Film Festival in March 2018.Bedian might be best recognized from her memorable guest star on the Emmy nominated episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm - "The Palestinian Chicken", ranked the highest rated episode in Curb history."It's the first time we've ever heard "Zionist pig" used as pillow talk." - The InquirerAnne was invited to return to the Curb comeback and reprise her role as Shara, the anti-semitic Palestinian Restaurant owner who seduces Larry yet again."On the upside, Larry still got to go for another round in the sack with Shara from Al-Abbas (welcome back, Anne Bedian!), who connected him with the consul to begin with. A redux of their hate-speechified coitus from "Palestinian Chicken" was a nice nod to what is arguably Curb's signature episode" - Vulture" The return of Shara (and a hilarious Anne Bedian) from one of Curb's best episodes, Season 8's "Palestinian Chicken," with an even more profane sex scene with Larry. It'll be hard to get the image of Larry shouting the names of several members of Donald Trump's administration and nearly climaxing out of my head." -The Ringer
