CARA REYNOLDS / Kate
Cara Reynolds began her acting career in Montreal at the age of 9. She landed her third audition ever, earning a role in the feature film Eye of The Beholder, where she played the younger version of Ashley Judd’s character Joanna Eris. She later had a brief stint on the children’s television series Caillou, as well as on PBS Kids cooking show Wiz Chef. She then held a series of small roles in three Canadian independent features. Throughout her teenage years, Cara landed roles in her high school’s renditions of Cheaper by The Dozen and Alice in Wonderland. Cara took a short hiatus from acting in order to focus on her studies before deciding to combine her love of acting and academia to enroll in John Abbott’s Professional Theatre program. After a year of learning from some great mentors, Cara moved to Vancouver to take a crack at the West Coast film and television industry.
FRANCIS GOULD JR / Wayne
Ever since joining his high school improv team in the 9th grade, Francis has been passionate about acting as a hobby. As a teenager, he was involved in live action role-playing games where he met Ramiro Bélanger, who, seeing a lot of raw talent, inspired him to continue developing his acting skills. A decade later, Francis was cast to play JR in the short film Raymond May Have Rabies. His performance blew the team away, so Ramiro decided to write a part for him in his first feature, CLYDECYNIC. He was the only non-unionized actor in the production and held his own as a professional. Since then, Francis has written and directed his first short film, Two Inches From Death.
