Anna Torv is ‘Open’ in Her Return to TV

Anna Torv is returning to television, but her comeback is a far cry from her days in Fringe Division.

The Fringe star is diving back into the small screen with a lead role on Ryan Murphy’s new HBO series about sexuality, titled Open. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Open is “a multi-character exploration of the complex, ever-evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.” Torv joins the cast alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh, Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley.

Torv stars as a yoga instructor named Windsor, who is in a long-term relationship with deeply dedicated actress Holly (Leigh). Windsor’s relationship with Holly is questioned by the arrival of Grace, a gynecologist who is confused about her own sexuality. Grace, currently uncast, is married to a sports agent named Jonathan, played by Speedman. Bentley stars as Evan, “a handsome blowhard who loves espousing his theories on human sexuality.”

HBO ordered Open to pilot in April, and has made no decision about moving forward with a fuller series order.

    sounds like a interesting plot, but i am of course primarily invested in Torv getting Naked. she is a supurb actress and i have no dout she will dominate any role she plays and she is also beautiful and sexy as hell.

    Now I’m not going to argue that she is not beautiful, I also loved her on fringe and find her extremely attractive, but am I the only one who thinks that she looks kind of (not an insult or critique just an observation) androgynous? I mean if you were to look at her face and ignore everything else (and that includes hair) you kinda can’t tell if she’s male or female. Like I said, I find her attractive regardless, but wanted to see if anyone also thought the same thing.

    i guess that’s a tiny bit true, although those eyes and lips…well now that i think about it no. i get where you’re coming from though. she has that tough look on her, which mainly lets me think she might be bi ;) she’s incredibly sexy IMO and a very talented actress, i can’t wait for this series!

    i can’t wait for this to air. it’s not even been a year and i already miss her to pieces. she’s a great actress and oh so sexy and beautiful. also, knowing the creator is Ryan Murphy, i think we can be sure it’s gonna be a great show
