Tanya van Graan is an actress and model from South Africa. She is most famous for her roles in movies such as "Starship Troopers 3: Marauder," "Lost Boys: The Thirst," "Death Race 2" and "Death Race: Inferno."
Tanya van Graan was born in South Africa on December 13, 1983. Like many who eventually get into the world of entertainment, she knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a performer. This was evidenced by her participation in virtually all activities in school growing up from sports to singing and dancing. She eventually grew to love musical theater, and as she grew older began using her skills to land small roles in television and film in order to begin making a name for herself as an up-and-coming actress.
After playing a role in the short film "Kofifi" in 2004, she went on to play a small role on the series "Snitch" the same year. By 2006, she had begun putting her love of the dancing side of musical theater to good use when she was a participant on the fourth season of the BBC One series "Strictly Come Dancing." This, of course, gained her much of the exposure needed to start landing larger roles, particularly in film. By 2008, she was cast in what could be considered her big break movie "Starship Troopers 3: Marauder."

While not exactly an A-list actress yet, Tanya continued to play vital roles in films such as "Lost Boys: The Thirst" and both "Death Race 2" and "Death Race: Inferno." Interestingly enough, she wound up playing different characters in both of her "Death Race" appearances. By 2014, she finally managed to land her first starring role in the movie "Die Spook van Uniondale" which centered around the true story of a famous ghost in the small town of Uniondale South Africa.
Along with her many professional acting achievements, Tanya was also voted the "Sexiest Woman in the World" by FHM South Africa in 2007.
