After completing the project, The Witcher, alongside Henry Cavill and Anya Chalotra, MyAnna Buring is already moving on to another one as she is working on a novichok poisoning drama in Salisbury. She's not technically British, but there are not many women who can thrive in the British drama world quite as much as her.
Born on September 22, 1979 [age 40], in Sundsvall, Västernorrlands län (in Sweden), and raised in the middle east, MyAnna Margaretha Buring Rantapää had acting connections since when she was in Muscat, Oman. Stegath Dorr, the horror filmmaker, was her childhood friend as they studied at the American British Academy there together. Both have come a long way since then.

As with many actors in Britain, MyAnna is also a theater artist, so you know there is a lot you can get from her. Her net worth is pretty when you know about it, especially after being the associate director of the MahWaff Theatre Company. But her 50+ on-screen credits are not to be underestimated at all.
MyAnna Buring's 2020 Net Worth of $4.5 Million Was Collected Since Only Her Late 20's
As of 2020, MyAnna Buring's net worth amounts to approximately $4.5 million, mostly from acting of course. But that acting career didn't begin until she was 24, although she did study to be an actor from a young age. It was only a few years later, after her first TV appearance as Michelle Wynne in Murder Prevention, that she got fully invested in the acting industry.

With 55 acting credits to her name since then, she's been primarily working on horror/thriller movies. So it comes to no surprise that she would be called up for the TV adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's books of The Witcher. Her role of Tissaia de Vries, a mentor and a mother-figure to Anya Chalotra's character, Yennefer of Vanderberg, in The Witcher has been evidently instrumental in the storyline.
The Fortune-Piling Acting Career and Other Notable Roles
After turning 16 and completing her study at the American British Academy, she moved to the UK and studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). She graduated in 2004 and has since been in the acting industry. She also studied Drama and Spanish at Bristol University. You might say 24/25 years of age is a little late, but she did make quite an impression since then.

While her first TV acting credit may be Murder Prevention, her first movie came in a 2005 horror film, The Descent, as Sam. But before that, she'd been a part of several plays during her study at LAMDA. She continued taking the live stage even after her on-screen career kicked off. But it wasn't all that easy. While some roles might have been by chance, like any actor, she's also terrified when it comes to auditions.
If she looks familiar, perhaps you know her as Tanya Denali in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn two-parter. But that's not the only prominent role she's taken as an actor. From The Descent, she moved up to Doomsday as Cally in 2008, as Lotte in Vampire Killers, and reprised her role in the sequel of the former, The Descent: Part 2 in 2009. Besides those, some of her other movies include, Devil's Playground , Hyena , Hot Property , and led the 2019 hit movie, Official Secrets, as Jasmine.
This should jog your memory; Part 1 alone made $712 million.

Buring does movies when she is not a part of TV series. There are plenty of them since she started out in Murder Prevention and Casualty in 2004. Her appearance in a 2006 Doctor Who episode probably was the one to get her recognized in the industry as she took on more TV and movie roles afterward.
The TV credits include guest appearances in Midsomer Murders , Comedy Lab , and Coming Up . Unsurprisingly, she's taken more recurring roles on TV. White Heat in 2012, Downton Abbey in 2012/13, Ripper Street for four years until 2016, and One Night in 2018 are just some of them.
The latest one in The Witcher as Tissaia de Vries was unsurprisingly spectacular. With a stellar cast like Cavill as Geralt of Rivia (aka The Witcher), Chalotra as Yennefer of Vanderberg, and Freya Allan as Ciri, Buring has been an important addition to the team. Tissaia is the head of the Aretuza magical school and buys quarter-elven hunchbacked Yennefer for a price less than for a pig.
However, it seemed Yennefer was not bought to be tortured or enslaved. Instead, she teaches her the use of her sorcery capabilities along with others like Mimi Ndweni's Fringilla Vigo. While the show got a lot of criticisms over the casting choice, the audience seemed pretty content with the presentation of the show when it aired on Netflix on December 20, 2019.

There are some of her theater credits that are absolutely required to be included here. Her most recent work has been with Lucy Prebble on A Very Expensive Poison in 2019. She plays a supporting character in the play based on Luke Harding's book. She also was a lead on the critically acclaimed, The Wasp, back in 2015, as she starred alongside Laura Donnelly as two close childhood friends who grow distant as their paths diverge.
Past theater credits include The Vote (Donmar Warehouse), Seduced (Finborough Theatre) and Strangers on a Train (Gielgud Theatre).
Secret Husband, But Happy Life — Practicing Pregnancy Before Actually Being Pregnant
Part of the achievement provided by being a late bloomer in the acting industry has admittedly been privacy, MyAnna raves. She says she didn't feel the pressure to disclose any personal detail about her during the course of her acting career. So she tries her best to keep the secrets a secret.

However, there isn't much one can do when their changing body is seen clearly. But she did keep her pregnancy a big secret until her red carpet appearance in February 2017. While details about her life partner are not known, her son is someone she definitely can't stop gushing about.
After the BAFTA appearance, she only came back in July 2017 to say that she'd given birth to her son two months prior to the announcement. She went on to talk to Lorraine Kelly on ITV’s Lorraine and say, "Eight weeks ago, I had my baby!" Judging by one of her Instagram posts, the baby was born on May 20, 2017.
"A year of no sleep, sitting in the sunshine, eating cake with a large panda hat sleeping on my chest- could not be happier!" Her caption on May 20, 2018.

But there were more she wanted to discuss. She also revealed she got the inspiration for making a baby after acting out pregnancy for her character, DI Helen Weeks, on In The Dark. Her character got pregnant before she actually did.
When I filmed I had a baby bump and I got to practise what it looked like to be pregnant. I liked it so much I did it myself! [Acting] it was nothing like actually being pregnant.
While the name of the baby will also remain secret, she is enjoying her motherhood more than she imagined.
Family life may all be well and good. But don't fret for her to stop acting anytime soon. She will still get involved in more exciting projects as her net worth also takes off to a higher value than where it is now.
