Grace fell in love with the theatre at a tender age playing Goldilocks in nursery school. In high school she toured Macbeth and The Two Gentlemen of Verona with Montreal Shakespeare Theatre Company. Grace spent her summers exploring and cultivating her passion for classical theatre with the Stratford Festival’s Shakespeare School and Theatre Performance Intensive under the direction of Edward Darayni. In summer of 2011, she appeared in Ottawa parks and the National Arts Centre’s 4th stage playing Desdemona in Salamander Shakespeare Co.'s Othello.
Graduating in 2012 from Dawson College’s Dome Theatre Program, Grace’s hunger for challenging material was always satisfied during her time there, where she played an interesting range of leading and supporting roles - including Portia in The Merchant of Venice, Masha in Three Sisters and Alma in Tennessee William’s Summer and Smoke. She was honored to be chosen as the recipient of the Beryl and Willie Moser Award for Theatre in recognition of 'outstanding acting ability.’ In her second year, she wrote the play The Art of Arousal, based on the life of modernist artist, Henri Matisse. The play premiered at the Mainline Theatre and The Factory Line’s 1st Gala for Student Drama - Grace was awarded ‘Best Actor’ for her role as Olga Meerson, and her dedicated team took home the grand prize of ‘Best Production.’
Constantly striving to further expand her talent, Grace is excited to explore every artistic possibility from stage to screen and looks forward to a long and fruitful career in the performing arts.
Check out Grace in theatre penumbra's production of David Mamet's Oleana, at the Red Sandcastle in Toronto, November 21 - December 3.
