Actress to Know: ‘iZombie’ Star Rose McIver

Full disclosure: I watch The CW like it’s my job. OK, technically it is my job as entertainment director, but can you really blame my addiction? The network has aired many an angsty television gem over the years—need we remind you of Veronica Mars, One Tree Hill, and Gossip Girl?and its latest series, iZombie, is no different. The show, which follows a medical resident–turned-zombie who gains physic powers by feeding on human brains, stars New Zealand native Rose McIver, an actress quickly climbing our ones-to-watch list.

McIver first broke onto the scene back in the 2009 Academy Award–nominated film The Lovely Bones, but it’s her more recent turns as Vivian Scully on HBO’s Masters of Sex and Liv Moore in iZombie that have us buzzing. We caught up with the actress to chat about everything from her exciting new role to her fashion favourites. Keep reading for our exclusive interview, and be sure to tune in to the latest episode of iZombie tonight on The CW at 9 p.m.
