Tiya Sircar lends her voice to Walking with Dinosaurs 3D

MUMBAI: America-based Indian actor Tiya Sircar, who received rave reviews for her role in ?The Internship,? will now lend her voice in the 3D film ?Walking with Dinosaurs.?

In the film Sircar plays Juniper, a pretty young Pachyrhinosaurus who lived 70 million years ago in the Cretaceous Period in what we now call Alaska.

The film, a BBC Earth Films and Evergreen Studios Production presented by Twentieth Century Fox and Reliance Entertainment, opens nationwide 20 December and stars John Leguizamo, Justin Long and Karl Urban and is directed by Barry Cook.

The daughter of college professors, Sircar became involved in the performing arts at the age of three.

She began with dance (ballet, jazz, modern and South Asian folk and classical dance) and then became equally interested in acting and musical theater. She continued to study and perform in school and community productions before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a professional acting career in Hollywood.

In ?The Internship,? Sircar played Neha Patel, a ?Twilight? fan fiction-obsessed college student possessing little-to-no actual experience in romance. Talking about her role in the film, Sircar told Glamaholic, ?I?ve often played the head cheerleader or the bitchy, popular girl in school. I?ve never really played a ?nerd? before. It was an eye-opening experience.?

The 31-year-old Austin native said she?s rarely cast as her actual ethnicity. ?I am Indian-American, but I often play ethnically ambiguous roles. I don?t often get Indian girl roles because I?m ?not Indian enough.?

Her films include ?Friends with Benefits? and ?17 Again? opposite Zach Efron. Her television credits include voice work on Disney?s ?Phineas & Ferb? and onscreen appearances on ?Betas,? ?The Vampire Diaries,? ?The Suite Life on Deck,? ?Numb3rs,? ?Hannah Montana? and ?House M.D.?

According to her IMDB profile, she will be next seen in ?Laggies,? a dark comedy about a young woman, played by Keira Knightley, who is stuck in perpetual adolescence who comes up with a novel plan to avoid her boyfriend?s marriage proposal.
