27 DRESSES

MALIN AKERMAN (Tess) was born in Stockholm, Sweden. A career opportunity for her father moved her family to Toronto, Canada when Akerman was only two years old. Akerman began modeling and acting in television commercials at age five.

At seventeen, Akerman won the Ford Supermodel of Canada search. Interest from international agents led Akerman to spend her summers in Europe modeling until she finished high school. She pursued a successful modeling career for several years but eventually decided to stay in Toronto and focus on acting. Akerman quickly landed a role on a television series produced by Steven Spielberg, and several guest roles followed. She then relocated to Los Angeles.

This fall, Akerman had a starring role opposite Ben Stiller in the comedy "The Heartbreak Kid,” directed by the Farrelly brothers. Before that she co-starred in "The Invasion,” starring Nicole Kidman, and in the comedy "The Brothers Solomon,” directed by Bob Odenkirk, starring Will Arnett and Will Forte. She has also appeared in the films "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle,” "The Utopian Society” and "The Skulls.”

On the small screen, Akerman impressed critics and audiences with her portrayal of Juna Millken in the HBO series "The Comeback.” She also had a recurring role in the third season of "Entourage.”

Akerman is currently shooting "The Watchmen,” also starring Patrick Wilson, Billy Crudup and Carla Gugino.
