Sitara Hewitt (also known as Tara Hewitt) is a Canadian film and television actress.
Sitara Hewitt is the daughter of Dr. Kenneth Hewitt, originally from Wales, and Dr. Farida Hewitt, from Pakistan. Sitara was raised primarily in Elora, Ontario. During her childhood she spent four years on and off between the ages of 4 and 13 in Pakistan's Himalayan mountains, specifically in the Hunza Valley of Gilgit-Baltistan where her parents did their academic field research on Northern Pakistan's glaciers, valleys and small villages. She is the youngest of four siblings.
Hewitt is married to American actor/trainer Jessie Pavelka and divides her time between Toronto and Los Angeles. She is fluent in both Urdu and English and semi-fluent in Balti. She was raised Christian as both of her parents are Anglican Christians.
Previously, she made the transition from professional dancer to actor and performed in theatre productions like Crimes of the Heart and Second City's Tony and Tina's Wedding as Tina. Making her start as a dancer in Bollywood/Hollywood, she continued her acting training and soon landed lead roles in the independent films Fragile and Bolly Double. She also hosted TV shows for Sportsnet and TSN while studying acting in Toronto, and trained with World Wrestling Entertainment in the United States.
