Iranian of the day * FAQ * Write for The Iranian * Editorial policy

Catherine Bell auditioned (five times) for the lead female role of Marine Major Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie on the CBS TV action-drama series "JAG". Knowing the show's originator, Donald Bellisario, from having made a guest appearance in the first season "JAG" episode, "Skeleton Crew," Catherine wrote him a long letter about how she loved the "Mac" character and how she felt she was the best person for the part. She was cast in the role.

Bell was born in London, England, on August 14, 1968. Her father, Peter, born in Britain, worked as an architect in London and her mother, Mina, born in Iran, worked as a nurse. Catherine is currently married to Adam Beason, 29, and lives in Sherman Oaks, California. She has two Italian greyhound doggies, Zoe and Leo. She is fluent in the Persian language Farsi. She enjoys painting, kick boxing, sky diving, bungy jumping, dirt biking, mountain biking, skiing, and snowboarding. Her mother is her personal assistant >>> Bell's official site
