Hannah is a mix of Indian ethnicity on her father’s side, and her mother is half-German-Italian and half-Greek-Cypriot. She spent her early years in Calgary, Alberta, but as an older child, she lived in Saudi Arabia. She and her family moved frequently. When she was 13, Hannah Simone lived in Cyprus and worked as a fashion model. At 16, she lived in New Delhi, India and attended an American Embassy school. And at 17, she returned to Canada, first to White Rock, British Columbia, and then to Vancouver. She said, “being raised as someone who is multicultural and multi-ethnic has been the greatest gift to me.”
Hannah added, “I tend to reject labels. If you put yourself in a box, I find that you spend the rest of your life trying to get out of it.”
Hannah Simone described herself on Twitter in 2013 as “Actor, Host, Fancy Neighbor, Food Experimenter, Connect 4 Champion and Lifelong Nomad who loves high 5s.”
She attended the University of British Columbia and earned a BA in International Relations and Political Science. In 2004, she earned a BA in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University. She later did research for a book by Foreign Affairs minister, Lloyd Axworthy.
Hannah made the leap from academia to hosting during her time at Ryerson: she was a radio host at the campus-based station. After her graduation, she became the host for HGTV’s “Space for Living,” following it up with her gig at MuchMusic, which lasted from May 2006 to November 2008.
Hannah then moved to Los Angeles and landed a job as host of “WCG Ultimate Gamer” on Syfy.
She told menshealth.com that every guy should buy his girlfriend at least one “getaway. That’s so romantic, to wake up and find that he’s packed a bag – and that for the next 48 hours everything is taken care of.” She added that more men should learn how to “listen.” And for guys who want to impress her, Greek lasagna is her “total, total weakness.”
Hannah describes friendship as “people who will take your call at 3am.” She added about love, “When you’re in my life and I love you, I’m a pushover.”
Hannah Simone lives in Los Angeles, California.
