CURRENT PROJECT

‘The Exorcist’ Adds Zuleikha Robinson As Season 2 Series Regular.

'The Following' alumna Zuleikha Robinson is returning to Fox with a co-starring role opposite returning leads Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels and Kurt Egyiawan in the upcoming second season of Fox’s horror drama 'The Exorcist'.

Robinson, who is coming off a series regular role on the ABC/Shondaland costume drama series 'Still Star-Crossed', will play Mouse, a mysterious figure waging her own private war against the Catholic patriarchy. Mysterious and pragmatic, Mouse takes her duty seriously, but in the end, she’s loyal to only herself. She joins fellow new Exorcist series regular additions John Cho and Brianna Hildebrand.

BIOGRAPHY

zr_sq_004.jpg

ZULEIKHA ROBINSON was born June 29th in London, England.  She is of English, Scottish, Indian, Burmese, Iranian and Malaysian descent.  Her diverse heritage makes her an extremely versatile actress.  Her name means "Beautiful One".

At 15, she developed a penchant for acting that eventually led her to Los Angeles, where she studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Her first feature was a supporting role in Mike Figgis' unconventional feature film, TIME CODE (2000).  It was the first film to be shot in a single continuous take, using four separate digital cameras to follow the movements and dialogue of each actor, shooting them in real time, continuously for 93 minutes, the length of one digital video cassette.

Robinson was series regular, 'Yves Adele Harlow' (an anagram for Lee Harvey Oswald), in Chris Carter's FOX drama, THE LONE GUNMEN (2001). It was a spin-off of THE X-FILES, featuring the trio of computer hacking conspiracy geeks.

Her first lead role brought her to Morocco, playing a 19th-century Arabian princess named 'Jazira', opposite Viggo Mortensen and Omar Sharif, in Disney's $80 million Western epic HIDALGO (2004), directed by Joe Johnston.  The film tells the true story of long-distance endurance horse rider, Frank T. Hopkins.

She next traveled to London, Venice and Luxembourg to star as Al Pacino's daughter in Michael Radford's film version of Shakespeare's, THE MERCHANT OF VENICE (2004), alongside Jeremy Irons and Joseph Fiennes, for Sony Classics.

Zuleikha just finished production on Fox Searchlight Pictures, THE NAMESAKE (2005), opposite Kal Penn.  It was based on the best-selling novel, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Jhumpa Lahiri, for Academy Award nominated director, Mira Nair.  It is the story of the Ganguli family whose move from Calcutta to New York evokes a lifelong balancing act to meld to a new world, without forgetting the old.
