Canadian Actress Serinda Swan

Updated on June 18, 2017

Serinda Swan - Canadian Actress and Model

This article is kind of a preemptive strike.
You know, it's sad that I can't remember the "It" girl before Angelina Jolie, I know there had to be someone.
Now we are going through the Angelina Jolie versus Megan Fox thing, is Megan the next Angelina?
But this young lady is someone that I think may be poised to give Megan a run for her money, even before she takes the crown.
Her name is Serinda Swan and she is a Canadian actress and model.
She was born in West Vancouver, British Columbia on July 11, 1984 giving even more credence to my theory that Canada is trying to produce an army of beautiful women to take over the planet.

Serinda doesn't have a huge body of work yet, but personally I think she may be (raise shields!) better looking than Megan and a more talented actress.
Okay, the more talented actress thing really isn't that hard with Megan....sorry.

Serinda is of Spanish, Scottish, Irish and English descent and the name "Serinda" comes from an ancient Tibetan instrument that's like a flute.
She started acting at the age of three in the 1989 film "Cousins" (a remake of the French film Cousin, cousine) with Ted Danson, Isabella Rossellini, Sean Young, William Petersen and Lloyd Bridges.

She took a break from acting and got heavily into gymnastics and then moved from there to modeling.

As a model, Serinda did work for Guess Jeans, and she beat out 70,000 competitors to get the coveted Guess Watches' holiday campaign.
She was also one of the Dorinha Girls for Dorinha Jeans.
This five foot eight, 119 pound beauty was also the Face of Absolute Poker.

Serinda Swan appeared in a 2006 Milky Way television commercial as the "Why so blue Panda Bear?" girl...

Interestingly, she appeared in the 2005 Bollywood film, Neal 'n' Nikki as Amanda.
She then appeared on one of my favorite TV show, Supernatural as a Hospital Receptionist in the episode "Salvation".
Serinda next appeared on an episode of the Canadian Vampire series, Blood Ties as a "Pretty Young Woman" in the episode "Heart of Ice".
Then she went on to the American and Canadian cable TV series, Exes and Ohs, appearing in the episode "What Goes Around" as Lucianne.

Serinda then appeared in her first TV movie, Beyond Loch Ness as Caroleena in 2008.
After that, she appeared in another on of my favorite TV shows, Psych, as Eileen Mazwell in the episode "Murder?... Anyone?... Anyone?... Bueller?".

In 2009, things really took off for Serinda as she appeared in the film The Break-Up Artist as Ashley.
She followed this up with another TV movie Desperate Escape as Melissa.
Then a bit part on the comedy-drama Reaper, in the episode "Business Casualty".
Another TV movie, Hostile Makeover was next, with Serinda appearing as Amanda Manville, followed by yet another TV movie, Trust, where she played Tiffany.

But then she got my attention when she appeared on yet another of my favorite TV shows, Smallville as the picture perfect Zatanna Zatara.
The episode "Hex" really brought my attention back to Smallville (after it wandered) because their Zatanna looked like she had literally stepped right out of DC comics.

Serinda was in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
There she portrayed Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, but if you blink, you'll miss her scene.
In a weird coincidence, Serinda was a model in the 2003 Venus Model Search.
Okay, I know it's just weird to me...LOL

Maxim named Serinda as one of the hottest women of poker.
She's listed with other actresses like Pamela Anderson, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Heather Graham and Jenny McCarthy.

Serinda appeared in the sequel to the 1982 film Tron, Tron Legacy as Siren #2.

Serinda appeared again on Supernatural in 2010, this time as another character, the truth goddess Veritas in the episode "You Can't Handle the Truth".
She also appeared on Hawaii Five-0 as Alana in the 2011 episode "Ho'ohuli Na'au".
Her film Lockjaw was changed to The Creature and then to Blood is Blood and back to Creature.

Serinda is now playing Erica Reed, a bounty hunter and expert tracker on the A&E TV show, Breakout Kings which will be back for it's second season in 2012.

Serinda has finished shooting Recoil (with Danny Trejo and Steve Austin) and also The Baytown Disco (with Paul Wesley, Eva Longoria, Billy Bob Thornton and Zoe Bell).

Serinda will be playing Medusa in the TV series based on the Marvel characters "Inhumans".
She will be the wife of Black Bolt, and she has the psychokinetic ability to animate her long red hair.
Yeah I know.
But comic fans swear she's really powerful.
The TV character really does not look like the hottness that is the comic book version.

      Sabreblade, Nice hub here! I do not know Serinda Swan personally and never met her face to face but after having worked on set in a movie with her (I was an extra) last year I can not believe she would have haters like onlinehubscams, conartist, and John who left such mean comments about her. She never showed any primadonna behavior on the sets and was always on time, did her job, never caused trouble, Once I saw her being nice to a couple little girls who knew her from Tron, she took pictures and hugged them when they left.

      conartist: You know, as much as tabloids like stories like that, it looks like they would jump all over that if it were true. Yep I saw Percy Jackson. BTW...being an extra doesn't mean she wasn't in the movie at all, it means she was an extra. Kinda like Erica Cerra was. You wanna check out her resume, go to IMDB or Wikipedia or Model Mayhem or IGN. Did you see the pictures I posted of her in Tron? Yes...she's an extra, but she is in it.

      So what is this obsession you have with her onlinehubscams?

      Sorry...I mean conartist...I forgot you got a new screen name so you would be allowed to post here again.'s Megan Fox...not Meghan. You really shouldn't repeat the same grammatical and spelling errors, it's a dead give away.

      Please stop obsessing over Serinda. Because I can't continue to let you keep posting these tirades.

      This is the last time.

      Serinda desperately wants to be Meghan Fox, She talks about it all the time and it is indeed true that she self posts along with her friends and managers everywhere. Her resume that you state is not even real.. Did you see Percy Jackson? She's not in the movie at all. An extra. Same as in Tron. Extra. Scream 4 was also a bogus credit that she created. This new noses movie was a credit put on IMDB to help try to get her a real job looking like she has a resume. I am not a fan of this type of thing either. Ms. Swan is known as a bit of a con artist in Vancouver. As well as known as being a for lack of a better term shady individual. She's pretty but again everything about her is fabricated. She was never a Guess model. She won an online contest as well. Her only real credits of noteworthy are two episodes on Smallville and being an Absolute Poker spokes person. She was never a model with real representation either. All photos are either from Absolute Poker or test shoots she paid photographers to shoot her.

      onlinehubscams: I wasn't aware all of that was going on. Actually I haven't seen any evidence of it.

      I'm neither a friend or agent. I just happen to think she's gorgeous.

      I wish I was her friend or agent....but oh well....

      onlinehubscams 7 years ago

      Serinda Swan and her close friends are the ones personally writing all the things about herself saying she is like Megan Fox etc,she is desperate to be compared to as another and it is unfortunate that she feels to have to create fake web links all over the web about herself ,she gets her agents and friends to post blogs and things so people think she is a Megan Fox she sure thinks she is Megan Fox when she's not,she is a very good looking girl but writes bogus stuff about herself so people think that,so I'm not a fan of that.

      Mike Lickteig: Yeah I saw that. I love her Zatanna. I wonder why her costume is picture perfect and they changed Black Canary's so much? Now THAT would be another costume that would draw male viewers I would think.

      I've always appreciated Angelina Jolie's beauty, but you gotta love any lady willing to get into the Zatanna costume! Which she did again on Smallville last Friday.

      Thank you Larry and I have to kinda agree there. I think that if you track the stars over the years you'll see a decline in quality.

      Celebrity women seem to be getting sluttier and sluttier each year...The original " It Girl " was Clara Bow, circa 1926, with girl-next-door looks and lots of attitude...these women look like painted mannequins with an equal amount of depth...

      Well written and researched Hub none-the-less...Thank you, Larry
