Annet Mahendru stars in "The Americans" on FX as Nina, the beautiful and mysterious Russian spy who is intimately involved with FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), both personally and professionally. The role earned earned Mahendru a 2014 Critics' Choice Awards nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Annet Mahendru was born to an East Indian father (a journalist and professor) and Russian mother (a businesswoman and artist). Mahendru finished high school in New York and received a Bachelor of Arts in English from St. John's University. After school, drawn by her passion for acting, she took classes at the HB studio, and performed in plays and independent films. While pursuing a Master's degree in Global Affairs at New York University (NYU), she reached a crossroads in her life. Dropping out of NYU, she moved to the west coast in pursuit of another degree, this one in storytelling. A longtime fan of improvisation, she began studying at the Groundlings School and took on several comedy projects thereafter. She also studied at the Imagined Life in Hollywood.

Other television credits include a recurring role in "The Following" and guest appearances in the recent reboot of "The X Files," "Grey's Anatomy," "White Collar," "Mike & Molly," "The Blacklist," "2 Broke Girls," "Big Time Rush," "Entourage" and "Love Monkey."

Mahendru stars in the independent film "Sally Pacholok" from EL Productions in the title role, a feisty ER nurse that takes on the medical establishment when she uncovers an epidemic of misdiagnoses. The film was named Best Feature at the Washington D.C. Independent Film Festival. Mahendru can also be heard in the DreamWorks Animation comedy "Penguins of Madagascar," as Eva, the snow owl analyst and North Wind agent. In addition, she appeared in the feature films "Escape from Tomorrow" and "Love Gloria."

Mahendru stars in the short film that she also produced, "Kill Until Killed" as Lisa Tina, alongside Charlie Schlatter, Michael Borne, Ryan Masson and Cornell Womack.

Mahendru speaks six languages, dances Bharata Natyam and is a brown belt in Karate.
