Biography

Natasha is a multi-disciplined Canadian Screen Award winning actress who gained notoriety in 2014 for playing the titular character in the digital series Carmilla. Formally trained in music however, Natasha studied voice performance at McGill University before pursuing a professional career in acting. Now at it full time, her most notable accolades include: winning a 2017 Canadian Screen award for Fan’s Choice with over two million votes, as well as receiving nominations for a 2017 VH1 Streamy Award, 2016 Canadian Screen Award,  2015 VH1 Streamy Award, and a 2015 Shorty Award for her work as an actress. But when she isn’t acting, you can usually find Natasha creating digital content for Shaftesbury where she recently co-produced and co-created a new web series called Clairevoyant or hosting their flagship YouTube channel KindaTV. She also occasionally volunteers as an improv teacher at her local centre for addiction and mental health, and enjoys hanging out with her adopted rescue dog.

Natasha first realized she had a passion for performing around the age of three, when she climbed onto a tree stump in the middle of her lawn and proudly sang the Canadian National Anthem at the top of her lungs, proclaiming she was practicing to sing at a hockey game. After receiving encouragement from teachers and friends, Natasha’s working class parents supported her talents by hosting foreign exchange students to subsidize the cost of her music education. She had her first piano lesson on her seventh birthday, and through public school and semi-professional children’s choirs, her spark for musical theatre was ignited.

Although she was a student of many summer drama programs, Natasha’s first experience on a bigger stage was being in the chorus of a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat ​with the Bach Children’s Chorus. She still remembers the excitement she felt when the curtain rose for the first time, and singing with the BCC gave her other incredible experiences like performing for distinguished audiences such as Queen Elizabeth II and the International Olympic Committee. Choir eventually lead to her attending Wexford C.S.A. – a specialized public high school for the arts, where she took intensive musical theatre, film production, and drama classes.

During her high school years, Natasha was an honours student involved in many extra-curricular activities. She starred in several community theatre productions including; The MikadoGigi, and Gypsyand she also ranked highly in classical singing competitions at the Kiwanis Musical Festival, which helped her complete her studies in voice performance through the Royal Conservatory of Music, before getting accepted ​to the prestigious Schulich School of Music at McGill University in Montréal.

Being the first person from her family to attend university, Natasha was proud to be paying her own way through a school like McGill, but felt unsatisfied with the rigidity of the opera world. She often found solace at the Montréal Improv Theatre and by acting in local plays. It was in her third year of university, after signing with a talent agent in her native Toronto, that she made the decision to leave school and seriously pursue a career in acting.

And only four days after returning home, Natasha booked her first professional role in the Dora Award nominated revue Off Broadway, On Stage for which she was nominated for “Best Female Performance in a Featured Role” by the Broadway World Awards. She took this as a universal sign that she had made the right choice, and made a deal with herself: if her career wasn’t moving forward by 25 years old, she would go back to school and finish her music degree.

After spending the remainder of her student loans on acting classes with David Rotenberg at Pro Actor’s Lab, and working many odd jobs, Natasha kept her promise to herself by landing her first leading role in a feature film (Almost Adults on Netflix) and starting pre-production for the second season of the award-winnning digital series Carmillajust months before her 25th birthday.

Since then, Natasha has amassed a large international fanbase and has gained over 250,000 collective followers across her social media platforms. She has also acted in a number of other film, television, and digital projects including: Darken, Slasher, and Murdoch Mysteries. The feature film version of Carmilla was released in October 2017 in 30 sold out Cineplex theatres across Canada, as well as on Fullscreen and VHX, and she also recently wrapped a leading role in her first American feature film Freelancers Anonymous which filmed in Chicago this fall. But when she’s not on set or on stage, Natasha loves giving back to her community, interacting with viewers, and being a positive role model to the fans that she is immensely grateful for.

In addition to ​being an actress, singer, and host, Natasha is an avid writer who occasionally works as a freelance journalist. Several of her articles have been published on AfterEllen.com (a website for queer women) as well as in the progressive, Canadian political magazine THIS Magazine. She is also known to dabble in poetry, song lyrics, children’s literature, and her most recent accomplishment was the story and screenplay for an IPF funded series called CLAIREvoyant which she created with Carmilla alumni Annie Briggs and producers at Shaftesbury ​in Toronto.
