Michelle McLeod graduated from the Acting for Film and Television program in 2013 and is currently an actor and comedian. You may recognize her from the award-winning comedy, Don’t Talk to Irene, featured at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
Michelle credits the start of her successful acting portfolio to the practical experience she gained in front of the camera every day at Humber. After graduation, Michelle was accepted into the Conservatory Program at The Second City, as well as the Canadian Film Centre where she advanced her skills to excel even farther in the industry.
“I booked my first role while I was at Humber. It was a commercial for Skittles and I played five different parts and that just lit a fire in me. It was the most fun thing I’ve ever done and it’s just been going up from there.”
Among several, some of Michelle’s favourite roles so far include the Tin Star, acting alongside Tim Roth and Genevieve O'Reilly, feature film Honey Bee, which premiered at the Whistler Film Festival in 2018 and DHX's Creeped Out. All of Michelle’s acting roles demonstrate her work ethic, aptitude for learning and ability to have fun throughout the entire process.
“I know a lot of actors that dislike watching themselves on TV, I love it because I am so proud of what I’ve done. To get to that spot and actually be on screen is a big accomplishment. I put my all in every opportunity and would love to do this for the rest of my life.”
