The fashion flock typically gets a late start when it comes to fall television, what with spring collections and the onslaught of autumn galas. But those who want to spend tonight on the couch need not be daunted. Here, WWD helps viewers get up to speed with the fresh-faced starlets of two new Tuesday night series, Fox’s “Fringe” and the CW’s “Privileged.”

NAME: Anna Torv

AGE: 30

CATCH HER IN: “Fringe,” the latest installment from “Lost” creator J.J. Abrams. Torv appears alongside Joshua Jackson as Olivia Dunham, an FBI agent investigating the mysterious dealings of a global research corporation, called Massive Dynamic.

PROVENANCE: Melbourne, Australia

EDUCATION: Australia’s prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Arts.

PREVIOUS CREDITS: Steven Spielberg’s World War II HBO miniseries “The Pacific,” BBC prime-time drama “Mistresses” and a string of roles Down Under in what Torv calls “one hour-dramas about people who live in apartment buildings.”

FAME GAME: Until 1998, Rupert Murdoch was married to Torv’s estranged aunt, also named

Anna Torv, with whom he had three children, Elisabeth, James and Lachlan.

“FRINGE” BENEFITS: “Sometimes it’s creepy,” says Torv of the sci-fi show’s special effects-filled sets. “You walk in and go, ‘Oh God, that poor person is lying in goo and has that pole sticking out of his head.’”

STYLE FILE:
“In Australia, you can get away with murder. You can wear a towel to the grocery store,” says the actress, who relocated to New York in July to film “Fringe.” Torv has adjusted to her new surroundings by stocking up on “clean and simple” separates from labels such as The Row.
