Who is the woman in the dewars white label scotch commercial? Why does she look familiar??

With more than 40 acting credits to her name, it's no surprise that Claire Forlani (born on July 1, 1972 in Twickenham, Middlesex, England) looks familiar to you.

Forlani started her professional acting career in 1992 playing Katarina in Gypsy Eyes, and has since appeared in Police Academy: Mission to Moscow (1994), The Rock (1996), Meet Joe Black (1998), and more recently CSI: NY (2006-2010), just to name a few.

These new commercials from Bacardi Ltd., the owners of Dewar's, are the first in 5 years. You can see the original ad here, and the newest one below:
