Biography

Yasmine Akram (born 1982) is an Irish-Pakistani actress, writer and comedian, best known for playing Janine in the third series of Sherlock.

Janine Hawkins was Mary Watson's maid of honour at her wedding to John Watson in May, 2013. It was there that she met Sherlock Holmes, who was the best man. She jokingly hinted that because they were bridesmaid and best man, it would be true to tradition if they had sex. He revealed to her that he secretly loved dancing and always had, though they never actually got to dance at the wedding, aside from the lesson he gave her.

Sherlock and Janine began a short relationship, one which ended badly when it was revealed that Sherlock was simply using her to get access to Magnussen's office, going so far as to propose to her.

Akram was born in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates but her family settled in Drogheda, Ireland when she was just 18-months old as she is of Irish and Pakistani descent.

She graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, where she studied acting. At the age of 14, she has collaborated with Calipo Theatre, Picture Company and Droichead Youth Theatre.
