“The Mechanic” is a remake of the 1972 film of the same name2 starring Charles Bronson that opens tomorrow in theaters nationwide. The story follows an elite assassin played by Jason Statham who seeks vengeance after his mentor and close friend is murdered. Ben Foster plays the mentor’s son who joins Statham’s character to “fix the problem” hence “The Mechanic” moniker. The film’s directed by Simon West whose resume includes Con Air, Black Hawk Down (as an exec producer), and Lara Croft Tomb Raider. One cast member who got our attention was Mini Anden who plays Sarah.
Mini Anden was born Susanna Anden in Stockholm, Sweden. She was given the nickname Mini as a baby because she was so small. Growing up, she trained to become an ice skater and began modeling at the age of ten. She has been on the covers of Elle, Vogue, Arena, and Cosmopolitan and has worked with top designers like Tom Ford, Donna Karan, and Calvin Klein.
In 2001, she was a judge for Miss Universe and in 2003, she appeared in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Her TV credits include host duties for Sweden’s Next Top Model in 2005, Tania Ford on Fashion House, Elsa on My Boys, and guest appearances on Monk, Entourage, Chuck, and CSI: Miami. You might recognize her from the episode of Nip/Tuck where she wants the doctors to make her ugly since she hated being so darn pretty.
As far as the big screen goes, she had bit parts in Ocean’s Twelve and Tropic Thunder then went on to play Lizzy in My Best Friend’s Girl starring Dane Cook, Jason Biggs, and Kate Hudson.
