Hannah Rose Ware was born on December 8, 1982 in South London, England. The daughter of BBC Panorama journalist, John Ware, and older sister to musician, Jessie Ware, she studied at Alleyn's School in Dulwich while also beginning a career in modeling at age 12. When she first began to model, she was reportedly the youngest ever to sign with the Storm Modeling Agency. As she grew older, her looks only got better, which kept her in the modeling circuit well into her late 20s. Of course, she still found plenty of time to keep up with her studies as well. A sucker for art history, she was soon accepted to several high end architectural schools, but opted to pursue her growing interest in acting instead.
Hannah's love of acting soon landed her at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York, where she spent two years perfecting her craft. In 2010, her dreams began to come true, as she was cast in the buddy comedy, "Cop Out," starring Bruce Willis. The following year, she layed a major role in the Michael Fassbender film, "Shame," centered around a man with a crippling sex addiction. Of course, these two roles were only the beginning of a very promising career, as Hannah was soon cast as Emma Kane on the Starz series, "Boss," which went on to run for two seasons.
With a career on the steady rise, Hannah has continued to land more and more prominent roles in both features and television. In 2013, not only was she cast in the U.S. remake of the film, "Oldboy," but also as the lead in the ABC series, "Betrayal," which centers on her characters affair with a rich and powerful lawyer.
