Dichen Lachman was born in Kathmandu, Nepal to a Tibetan mother and Australian father. She grew up in Adelaide, Australia with her parents. The University just wasn't for her so she soon took up acting and moved to Melbourne. She was on the Australian series Neighbours for 14 months. Then in 2009 she was Joss Wedon's Dollhouse.
Perhaps you know her from SyFy's Being Human as Suren. She is in the upcoming movie LUST FOR LOVE.
