Sitara Hewitt (also known as Tara Hewitt) is a Canadian film and television actress.


Sitara Hewitt is the daughter of Dr. Kenneth Hewitt, originally from Wales, and Dr. Farida Hewitt, from Pakistan. Her parents are professors at Wilfrid Laurier University. Sitara was raised primarily in Elora, Ontario[1] During her childhood she spent time living in the Himalayan mountains, specifically in the Hunza Valley of Gilgit-Baltistan where her parents did their academic field research on both the glaciers and in the small villages in the valleys.[2]

Hewitt was married to American actor Jessie Pavelka and divided her time between Toronto and Los Angeles. Pavelka and Hewitt separated in 2015 and divorced late 2016. She is fluent in both Urdu and English and semi-fluent in Balti. Hewitt was raised Christian as both of her parents are Anglican Christians.[3]


Hewitt starred on CBC Television‘s Little Mosque on the Prairie as Dr. Rayyan Hamoudi. She was also a co-host on the Comedy Network’s Jeopardy-style pop-culture game show You Bet Your Ass.

Previously, Hewitt made the transition from professional dancer to actor and performed in theatre productions like Crimes of the Heart and Second City’s Tony and Tina’s Wedding as Tina. Making her start as a dancer in Bollywood/Hollywood, she continued her acting training and soon landed lead roles in the independent films Fragile and Bolly Double. Hewitt also hosted TV shows for Sportsnet and TSN while studying acting in Toronto and trained with World Wrestling Entertainment in the United States[citation needed].
