Cynthia Addai-Robinson (born January 12, 1985) is an English born American actress.
Of Ghanaian descent born in London, Cynthia relocated to America when she was young. Given that she sounds American, safe to say she lost her British accent. She attended Tisch School of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater.
After guest starring in mostly procedural TV shows, she had a small role playing Zoe Saldana's mother in the movie Colombiana. Her breakout role occurred the same year when she was cast to replace Lesley-Ann Brandt as Naevia in Spartacus: Blood and Sand in the second season. She received Special Forces training by Navy Seal and New Zealand Special Air Service personnel during filming. Currently she plays Nadine Memphis on Shooter.
