Meaghan Rath is a Canadian actress. Her roles include the series Being Human, 15/Love, The Assistants, and Hawaii Five-0.

Her brother is actor Jesse Rath. She is married to English actor Jack Cutmore-Scott, with whom she has one child. Meaghan has said:

Well, both my parents are Canadian. My dad’s family is from England and Austria, and they’re Jewish. And my mom’s family is from Goa, which is in the south of India. Her and her family moved to Canada when she was 13.

She also added:

I looked different from everyone… else, which now is such a blessing. It was harder at the beginning of my career. There aren’t as many roles for people who look like me, and it was always complicated when it came to casting my parents. But now I couldn’t be more grateful that I have a different look.

    Not one of her best photos, unfortunately. The one of the Montreal Gazette link is by far better. She is a terrific beauty. Since I saw “Being Human”, the mix of English, Austrians, Jewish and South(west) Indians is one of my favourites in the genetic cookbook.
