 A former dancer in her native Australia, actress Emilie de Ravin first caught the attention of television viewers as Tess on the sci-fi series, "Roswell" (1999-2002), before hitting pay dirt as Claire on ABC's Emmy Award-winning series, "Lost" (2004-2010). Prior to her run on the popular series, de Ravin had a recurring role on "BeastMaster" (Sci Fi Channel, 1999-2002), which helped her land the role as the alien/human hybrid on "Roswell." But thanks to "Lost," de Ravin became an overnight celebrity and was even named one of Maximmagazine's "Hot 100" in 2006. Making the jump to the big screen, the up-and-comer appeared as a young heroin addict in the critically acclaimed independent film "Brick" (2005) and had a starring role in the horror remake, "The Hills Have Eyes" (2006). Though she had a small part in Michael Mann's "Public Enemies" (2009), de Ravin had no doubt announced herself as a talented young performer worthy of everyone's undivided attention.
