Elena Marié Satine (Georgian: ელენა სატინი, Russian: Елена Сатине) (born November 24, 1988) is a Georgian-American actress and singer.

Early life[edit]

Satine was born on Tbilisi, then-capital of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic (current Georgia). Her mother was an opera singer, actress and former model, and her father worked in the textile industry.[2] At the age of five, Satine became a part of the Georgian pop group Nergebi, a Mickey Mouse Club-like ensemble of child performers. She toured with Nergebi throughout Eastern Europe, including an appearance on children's variety show Utrennaya Zvezda (Morning Star) and later branched off into a solo career. At age 7 Elena and her family moved to Sochi,[3][4] and at age 9, Satine became the youngest performer to headline at the Kinotavr Festival.[5] In 1998, while accompanying her mother on a business trip, Satine snuck away to audition for Professional Performing Arts School, and earned her admission on the spot. After convincing her parents to let her study in the United States, Satine moved to New York,[6] and graduated from PPAS at age 16. Afterwards she continued her Dramatic studies and received a "Diploma of Specialist in Acting Art" following four years of study at the Moscow Art Theatre School in Russia, and later did several international fellowships at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, England.[5][6]

Career[edit]

Satine's television debut happened in an episode of Cold Case, playing an immigrant Russian singer.[2] She has since appeared on TV shows including Gemini Division, CW's Melrose Place, and an episode of Smallville (Season 10, Episode 9) where she played Mera, the wife of Aquaman.[7] She also appeared on ITV's Poirot, in a 2010 episode that adapted Murder on the Orient Express.[8]

Satine was for two years part of the main cast of the Starz series Magic City. The producers tailored the role of Judi Silver for Satine following her audition to play another part.[9] Satine appeared on a 2014 episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. playing the evil Asgardian Lorelei.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Satine and The All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter became engaged in April 2013 and married on December 31, 2013.[10][11]
