How long have you been a Vancouverite?
I’ve been a Vancouverite on and off for my entire life. No matter how many times we moved or wherever I’ve lived, I have always come back to Vancouver – it’s where all my family lives.
I am an actress, starring on the Canadian one-hour TV drama series The Listener as Sgt. Michelle McCluskey, a no-nonsense agent for the Integrated Investigative Bureau. The exciting third season can be seen Wednesdays at 10pm EST/PST on CTV. I also just wrapped the indie feature Hunting Season, directed by Keith Samples. We shot in Winnipeg and Riding Mountain National Park. It’s a thriller, and I play a young woman who must confront her mysterious past. Kris Holden-Ried, David Sutcliffe and Sarah Manninem also star in it.
Favourite Vancouver shop:
My favourite Vancouver shop by far is Obakki – not only have I been a huge fan of the clothing for many years now but I love what the company stands for and what they’re doing. Check out Obakkifoundation.org for more info.
Top insider tip for visitors:
Spend an afternoon in Deep Cove, BC in the summer. Rent a little boat and explore the small islands, then have a picnic in the park.
