Zuleikha Robinson was born in London and moved to Los Angeles to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Her first feature was a supporting role in Mike Figgis' unconventional film “Timecode.”

In her first lead film role, Robinson played a 19th-century Arabian princess named “Jazira” opposite Viggo Mortensen and Omar Sharif in the Western epic “Hidalgo.” She starred as Al Pacino's daughter in Michael Radford's film version of Shakespeare's “The Merchant of Venice” alongside Jeremy Irons and Joseph Fiennes. Robinson also appeared in Fox Searchlight’s “The Namesake” opposite Kal Penn.

Robinson’s television credits include a series regular role as “Yves Adele Harlow” (an anagram for Lee Harvey Oswald) in the FOX drama “The Lone Gunmen.” Most recently, she appeared on HBO’s “Rome” as “Gaia,” a slave who comes to the Aventine to work in the tavern of Vorenus and causes trouble in her own right.

Robinson lives in Los Angeles.
