Nosheen Phoenix is an actress living in the US who grew up in London, with parents of a Pakistani background.
And if that seems complicated, her path into acting is similarly jam-packed, having been a model, a member of pop band DeVoteD, and doing some song writing. All done with a family that didn’t really support a move into the entertainment industry.
Nosheen moved to New York in 2009 and then to L.A. in 2012, as acting became her focus. It’s a move that appears to have worked, with parts in Modern Family, Mike & Molly, Happy Endings, Grey’s Anatomy, and currently playing Nayyara on HBO’s brand new show The Brink. She seems to have captured the public’s attention if Playboy is any reflection. I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.
