Christina Kelly

Christina spent her childhood enthralled by the emotional power and visceral medium of communication in film and television. However, her dream of becoming an extraordinary storyteller through acting continually fell by the wayside, leaving her more anxious than ever to pursue her dream. No matter how hard she studied film production or tried to convince herself otherwise, all she wanted to do was act. Christina wanted to be in front of the camera, she wanted to perform, and she wanted to tell stories.

After completing her BA in Communication Studies at Concordia University, Christina joined forces with Straeon Acting Studios in 2013. She believes her experience behind the camera has greatly contributed to her growth and development as an actress. In 2014 she clinched her first actor role in the made for TV movie First Response, produced by Incendo Productions. She has since gone on to complete a number of short films and a web series, just recently booking her second actor role in a CBC TV series set for release later this year. Now living her dream, Christina could not be happier with her achievements thus far.

Amanda Tilson
Assitant Director

She first discovered my passion for the film industry at the young age of 8. During this time she had the opportunity to work with incredibly talented people such as Shia LaBeouf, Nina Dobrev, Bill Paxton, Megan Park and Neve Campbell, to name a few. She would have to say that her favourite role was playing a young Neve Campbell in the TV movie "An Amish Murder". In the past, she had been told that she resembled her by a number of people so it was cool to finally portray a younger version of her! On top of this, she also had the opportunity to do her own stunts and run down a dirt road screaming her lungs out with fake blood dropping down her face.

Now, at 24, she is in the midst of planning her big move to Toronto in order to see what the city has to offer in terms of acting jobs! It has been her dream since she commenced to pursue this path full-time, so to say she is excited for the future would be an understatement! In the meantime she is testing the waters of the crew side of things, attempting to learn all she can about the industry.
