Rupert hardly speaks. You're lucky to get anything out of him these days, he just has a wicked sense of humor and he's very eccentric and very unique in the way that he does things. He's like a big kid. I feel like he'll never grow up, which I love.

A Conversation with Anna Torv

Learn low-maintenance beauty tips from Anna Torv, the Fringe star and Aussie actress

You've gotta love a straight-shooting Aussie chick. Take the latest wonder from Down Under, Anna Torv. Newfound stardom in the U.S.--she plays FBI agent Olivia Dunham on the Fox sci-fi series Fringe--hasn't turned the actress into the kind of Master Cleansing, rabbit-food-nibbling, body-obsessed waif that's become all too common on the small screen. In fact, she says, "To be really honest, I don't love the gym."

But that's OK, because the 30-year-old actress is getting quite a workout on her new show, "running about" the set with costar Joshua Jackson as they chase down clues to government conspiracies. "There's a lot of manhandling of bad guys, which is great fun," she says. "I love being physical, but I don't have any desire to prove myself. My character uses her feminine wiles, too. I'm interested in keeping that side of it real."

Like fellow Aussie Cate Blanchett, Torv gives off a grounded vibe. Raised by a single mother in the town of Matrabar, on Australia's Gold Coast, she spent her teenage years surfing, camping, and riding horses--whatever kept her outdoors. "My friends and I would get up early and take our horses through the national forest," she says. "My mom was very free. It was always 'Out of the house!' There was no watching television on weekends."

Since then, Torv has racked up an impressive list of acting credits. After graduating from Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art in 2001, she did Shakespeare on tour with the Sydney Theatre Company, then appeared on several TV shows in her homeland. A relative newcomer to Hollywood, Torv--who is rumored to have beaten out more than 300 hopefuls for her Fringe role--isn't about to buy into the pressure to be perfect. "I work in an industry where everyone is flawlessly beautiful, but I just want to be healthy," she says. "I had a fantastic mother who taught me self-confidence. I feel good about who I am."

Torv revealed to WH the rest of her feel-good formula--including a pain-free fitness regimen, tips for winding down after a stressful day, and a homemade recipe for glowing skin.

Practice the 10-yard stare. "When I'm stressed, I go for a walk--breathing deep and taking in the horizon. That's what Australians call a 10-yard stare. I go fast and squeeze my butt muscles as I walk. And every now and then, when I'm feeling tired, I'll go to my dressing room and do yoga stretches to get loose. Reading is another great way to de-stress; it takes me to another world. I'm salivating to start The Gathering, by Irish novelist Anne Enright."

Use weekends wisely. "I'm a huge camper, and love hiking and mountain biking. Since my show is filmed in New York City, I've been able to go to the Hudson Valley, in upstate New York, on weekends. Recently, friends and I went to Mohonk Mountain House [in New Paltz] and walked around the lake and swam. Two days of that and you feel great. I wear Blundstones for hiking. They're like a work boot with a bit of grip, so you can wear them all day. They're quite groovy."

Consider the alternative. "Homeopathic medicine works for me. I never get sick. I don't believe in taking multivitamins. Instead, I'll swallow a capsule of garlic oil, which is a blood purifier and an antioxidant, at night. I also take zinc, as well as vitamin C, every now and then. And if I'm about to do something really physical, I'll take magnesium. I also refer to the book Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, by Christiane Northrup, again and again. I am an avid believer in the idea that menstrual cycles are a natural thing and that you shouldn't run from them. I've never been on the Pill."

Feed your face. "Bad skin is the bane of my existence. One trick that makes my skin look good: Every morning, I grind fresh flaxseed, then mix it with yogurt and blueberries--all of which are good for the skin--and eat that. I'm also a fan of Dr. Nicholas Perricone's skin-care regimen. I followed it for a few months and my skin looked beautiful. It makes sense--using omega-3 oil and foods with healthy fats to make skin supple. When it comes to skin-care products, I use Alpha-H, an Australian line made with alpha-hydroxy acids []. I'm also an advocate of microdermabrasion. In an ideal world, I'd do it every two months."

Shun the sun. "Like a lot of Australians of Irish or Scottish descent, the people in my family have fair complexions. I spend a lot of time in the sun, but I've never been burned, because my mom used to slap 30-plus sunscreen on me. Now I wear it every day. When we shoot outside for the show, I wear a hat. It's vanity: If I'm in the sun for a long time, my freckles pop up. In the '70s it was cool to have a tan. But thanks to women like Nicole Kidman, who never bought into the tanning thing, now pale skin looks elegant."

Go easy on the glam. "On the show, I wear Clarins Tinted Moisturizer to cover my freckles. I mix that with a heavier foundation so I can alternate between lighter and heavier coverage. I also like Max Factor Pan-Stik, which I use as a concealer, dotting it along my T-zone. I don't love to have my freckles popping out, but I don't like to look like I'm wearing a mask, either. Another favorite is Tarte Cheekstain: It gives me a dewy look."

Hit the snooze button. "If you take care of your body, your body will take care of you. But it's not just about working out or eating right--it's about knowing when to rest. I'm into energy conservation. If I have an 18-hour day ahead, I won't get up extra early. I conserve that energy so I'll feel strong at the end of the day. Our [filming] timetable is all over the place: Sometimes I start at four in the afternoon and work until four in the morning, so I grab a nap whenever I can."

Olivia & Ella – Over There Part one

ELLA: Aunt Liv, what time is it?
OLIVIA: It's early. I have to go on a trip, and, uh... I wanted to give you something before left.
ELLA: It's pretty.
OLIVIA: My mother... your grandmother... gave it to me before she died. She told me that it would keep me safe. So now I'm giving it to you.
ELLA: Thanks, Aunt Liv.
OLIVIA: You are welcome, baby girl.

Olivia & Henry

HENRY HIGGINS: Nice ink. What's it mean?
HENRY HIGGINS: Tattoo on the back of your neck. Looks like a sun of some kind.
OLIVIA: They must have done it to me. She must have one. The other one must have a tattoo.
HENRY HIGGINS: The girl they're trying to make you believe you are?
HENRY HIGGINS: Yeah, that sounds right. I agree.
OLIVIA: Hey, don't do that. Don't placate me because you think that I'm--
And what would you think if I jacked your cab in a hospital gown with a gun, screaming a
conspiracy, telling you I'm being chased by the government and folks are trying to make
me believe I'm a tattooed version of myself.
OLIVIA: Look, I know I sound insane.
HENRY HIGGINS: A little bit.
OLIVIA: Well, I'm not insane. I'm not who they say I am.
HENRY HIGGINS: Okay. So where we going?
OLIVIA: You're taking me home.

Guest 2

Olivia & Marilyn

MARILYN DUNHAM: Sweetheart. Oh! I know what happened. They told me about your
breakdown. I came home as soon as I heard. I tried to see you, but they wouldn't let me.
Sweetheart, I've been so scared.
OLIVIA: I'm not your daughter. My mother died when I was 14 years old. This is all wrong. You're not supposed to be here.
OLIVIA: Don't you call me that. I am not your daughter.
MARILYN DUNHAM: Yes, you are. You're just confused.
OLIVIA: This was going to be my way home.
MARILYN DUNHAM: This is your home.
OLIVIA: No, my home is in Jacksonville, Florida. I was -- I was brought up on an Army Base.
I've never been here before!
MARILYN DUNHAM: If you've never been here, how did you know to come here?
OLIVIA: I helped you paint, didn't I?
MARILYN DUNHAM: Yes. You picked the colors. I wanted blue, but you convinced me to use --
OLIVIA: Yellow, because it was more cheerful.
MARILYN DUNHAM: Sweetheart... this is your home. This is your safe house. Oh.

Guest 3

Olivia & Frank

FRANK STANTON: And I love your gung-ho attitude, but, honey, you just got over a breakdown. If you need help, that's fine.
OLIVIA: Frank, it was my first day back. I was nervous. I don't think that it's that surprising that there's a trace...
FRANK STANTON: I can take myself off call. Maybe it's not a good time to travel.
OLIVIA: That's not what I want. Are those avocados? Where did you get them? How much?
FRANK STANTON: Don't worry about that. Liv, what if it happens again?
OLIVIA: It won't.
FRANK STANTON: But if it does, you'll tell Broyles, right? Because... I love you.
OLIVIA: I'll tell him.
OLIVIA: Can we eat?
FRANK STANTON: Yes, we can eat.

Guest 4

Olivia & Brandon

BRANDON: You've been back with Fringe Division for a week now?
OLIVIA: Uh... for eight days.
BRANDON: Any headaches or lingering symptoms... mood swings, insomnia?
OLIVIA: No. Although I do feel like I keep getting asked the same question over and over again. Is that a lingering symptom?
BRANDON: You are recovering from a severe mental break, Agent Dunham-- I have to ask you these questions.
OLIVIA: Yeah. I know.

Guest 5

Olivia & Christopher Broyles

CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: My dad says I need to forget about what happened.
OLIVIA: Yeah? But it's hard to forget, isn't it? You know, I can imagine what it must have been
like for you... how scared you must have been, how much you -- you really wanted to get back to your family, and to your friends.
CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: I - I have nightmares about this sometimes.
OLIVIA: Really? Could you tell me about them?
CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: I always remember the smell first. It's musty, like our attic. He comes to the
room wearing a mask to check on that thing stuck in my neck. It feels like... it's stealing
my energy. I'm so tired. I feel sick.
OLIVIA: Chris, you said that there were two men... one old and one young, right? Did they ever talk to you?
CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: No. Nothing I remember.
OLIVIA: Chris... What is it? You can tell me.
CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: I know the Candy Man's back.
OLIVIA: Yeah, he is.
CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: (starts to get teary-eyed) He said if I told anyone about him, he --
he'd come back. He said this time... he'd -- he'd hurt my mom and dad.
OLIVIA: That is not going to happen. I promise. Christopher, there is another little boy just
like you. He's been taken, and he wants to go home and see his family too.
You can help him.
CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: I remember their voices. Um, they both said the same thing.
I think it was a prayer.
OLIVIA: Can you remember the words?
CHRISTOPHER BROYLES: Some of the words. "Through the pitch dark... comes a cleansing fire."

Guest 6

Olivia & Simon Phillips

SIMON PHILLIPS: Did it help?
OLIVIA: We don't know yet. We're, uh-- we're hoping so. Who is she? You had drawings of her in your cabin.
SIMON PHILLIPS: She works at a coffee shop by my house.
OLIVIA: What's she like?
SIMON PHILLIPS: She's perfect.
OLIVIA: You haven't met her, have you?
SIMON PHILLIPS: I see her sometimes when I drive by.
OLIVIA: Is it because you think it would be too painful?
SIMON PHILLIPS: Look, even if she pretended to be nice or to be my friend or even flirted with
me out of some kind of pity, I would know how she really feels. That I'm too much
of a freak for her to even consider being with.
OLIVIA: But... but you don't know that. That's what you're afraid is gonna happen.
And so what if you find out that -- that she's not interested or that there's somebody else
on her mind or that she doesn't love you. I mean, isn't it - isn't it better to know?
SIMON PHILLIPS: No one should know exactly what someone else is thinking.
OLIVIA: Probably not, but I wouldn't mind having that ability right now.

Guest 7

Olivia & Alice Merchant

OLIVIA: He's already here. Alice...
ALICE MERCHANT: Go away. I don't want you here.
OLIVIA: Alice, what I'm about to tell you is going to be hard to understand, but everything that
is happening in this building is because of you. Because of you and Derek. Now, you're
the only person that can stop it. But to do that, you need to let him go.
ALICE MERCHANT: I won't do that.
OLIVIA: I can understand how you feel. Okay, Alice, the man you're seeing, he's not a ghost,
and he's not your husband. He looks like Derek. He looks exactly like Derek.
ALICE MERCHANT: Then who is he?

Guest 8

Olivia & Professor McClennan

OLIVIA: In this universe, some things are the same, and some things aren't.
People... make different choices and -- and therefore end up in different places.
PROFESSOR MCCLENNAN: I mean, this is... like a nightmare.
OLIVIA: John, anything that you can tell us about him... anything will help. Anything.
PROFESSOR MCCLENNAN: I don't just understand him. I am him. What's in him is in me.
OLIVIA: So what do you mean?
PROFESSOR MCCLENNAN: You're not the only one with secrets.
OLIVIA: Go on.
PROFESSOR MCCLENNAN: For as long as I can remember... I knew something was wrong with me.
My father -- he knew it too. He saw the darkness. He -- he used a... heavy hand to try and fix me.
The brutality of it, I mean, it was...
OLIVIA: I al -- I also came from an abusive home. My -- my stepfather w --
PROFESSOR MCCLENNAN: It's no mistake that I - I do what I do. I want to understand myself.
I want to help people like me.

Guest 9

Olivia & Cameron James

CAMERON JAMES: Have you heard about any of the others?
OLIVIA: No. Have you?
CAMERON JAMES: You're the first. I used to wonder about them a lot. Less so now, I guess.
You haven't had any side effects from the experiments? You're really lucky.
Or it's something else.
OLIVIA: What are you saying?
CAMERON JAMES: When I had my first experience, I thought something was coming after me, too...
until I realized I was doing it to myself.
OLIVIA: You think I'm doing this... that I'm bringing this on myself?
CAMERON JAMES: I don't know. The question is, would he tell you if he thought you were?
You weren't there anymore. But I remember he wasn't happy when the experiments stopped.

Guest 10

Olivia & Eugene Bryant

OLIVIA: Help me, please.
EUGENE BRYANT: You understand right now how important it is to be seen. Your life depends on it.
Me seeing you right now.
OLIVIA: Okay, just wait. Listen, you're dying. Whatever it is that you're doing to yourself,
it's killing you. Just -- please let us -- let us try and heal you.
EUGENE BRYANT: I don't think you're here to help me heal. Not after what I’ve done. If you're
here to help me, it's because I have value to the military, And they don't want the long-lost
Experiment 69545 to self-destruct! Not when they found him again.
OLIVIA: We have nothing to do with the military. I am just here to stop the killing.
EUGENE BRYANT: All my life... I've been watching them live theirs. Watching them... fall in love.
To be looked upon by the right person... to connect... and to see in their eyes kindness.
Happiness. And... recognition. That's when you exist.
OLIVIA: There is a scientist who I work with for the FBI. He works out of a Harvard lab. Now,
if anyone can hope to undo what they've done to you --
EUGENE BRYANT: I lived my life in a lab! I am not going back!
OLIVIA: If you treat yourself again, even once, it could kill you.

Guest 11

Olivia & Emily Mallum

OLIVIA: Emily? You picked a nice spot for us to meet.
EMILY MALLUM: It reminds me of a place we used to live. A better time. I sometimes
sneak out here to think. To clear my head.
OLIVIA: Does your father know that you called me? So what did you want to tell me, Emily?
EMILY MALLUM: I think a lot of people are gonna die.

Guest 12

Olivia & Nick Lane

OLIVIA: Hello, Nick. Uh, I'm Olivia Dunham. And we actually knew each other a long time ago.
NICK LANE: Olive. I remember you. You're FBI. Of course you are.
OLIVIA: Nick, for reasons that you may or may not understand, we don't have a lot of time.
I need you to tell me where David Robert Jones is.
NICK LANE: I can't do that.
OLIVIA: Nick, I --
NICK LANE: I won't. Olive, I'm sorry. But you don't have to worry about him.
OLIVIA: Why don't I have to worry?
NICK LANE: Look, I know they're watching. But we're on the same side.
NICK LANE: You and me. Remember back when we were kids? What they prepared us for? It's happening.
OLIVIA: What is happening, Nick?
NICK LANE: What they warned us about. The War. And Jones is on our side.
That's why you don't have to worry about him. He's protecting us.

Guest 13

Olivia & Jessica Holt

JESSICA HOLT: You'll let me know what happens with the others, then?
OLIVIA: I will, but now that the antidote's been synthesized, they'll all be fine, thanks to you.
JESSICA HOLT: Thank you. I don't know how you did it, but you did.
OLIVIA: You know, not everybody would volunteer to be Walter's guinea pig.
JESSICA HOLT: It wasn't really for me. I've got a four-foot-tall redhead at home who's constantly
in dire need of Mac and Cheese and help with her math. And her father's an idiot.
Well, if you ever need help getting to the head of the line in an E.R...
OLIVIA: And listen, if you find that you have any more symptoms, give me a call.
OLIVIA: Thank you.
JESSICA HOLT: Thank you.
