Ann M. Murray
Fringe‘s Anna Torv has been outed as Fox billionaire Rupert Murdoch’s niece, which will probably raise a lot of people’s nepotism antennas. Although this news might not be as clear cut as it seems at first, because Torv says in an interview that she’s not so fond of the connection to the Murdoch side of the family clan. “I hate that that even comes up,” she stated in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, noting that her father’s sister is an ex wife of the Fox boss. “I’ve been estranged from my father since I was eight.” The media mogul’s money unfortunately never made it to her portion of the family tree, leading her to the typical life of a struggling actor: living off her credit cards.
