Lili Bordán (born March 12, 1982)[1] is a Hungarian-American film and television actress.

Early life[edit]

Lili Bordán was born in New York City, the daughter of Hungarian actress Irén Bordán. During school at Sarah Lawrence College, she completed her degree in theater and 19th century western literature.[2] She also studied with world-renowned acting coach Susan Batson. Finishing her studies, she moved to Hungary.[3]


In 2001, Bordán began her acting career in television with a guest appearance on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. From 2003 to 2010, she starred in supporting roles in several feature films like Kistestvér (2003),[4] 8mm 2 (2005), Joy Division (2006), and Kolorádó Kid (2010),[5] and leading roles in films like Kinder Garden (2005), Cherry (2010),[6] A Love Affair of Sorts (2011),[7] and Egill: The Last Pagan (2011).[8] In 2007, she continued her television career, guest starring on the shows Painkiller Jane, Robin Hood, and Könyveskép. Subsequent credits include Luke 11:17 (2008) and ER (2008).[3] A recurring role made a sudden entrance on Silent Witness (2011), as Anna Sándor.[9] She later moved on to another recurrence in Casino (2011), as Mirtill.[10] On February 10, 2011, it was announced that Bordán would join the main cast of the military science fiction drama Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome,[11] portraying Dr. Beka Kelly, a former employee of Graystone Industries, the company that created the Cylon.[12][13] In 2012, she was cast as the troubled lead Jodie in British thriller Two Days In The Smoke, released in 2014 as The Smoke in the UK and London Payback in the rest of the world.[14][15] Smoke director Ben Pickering cast her as Dr. Jones in his second feature Welcome to Curiosity, due for release in the USA and Canada on 25 May 2018.
