Born in Montreal, Natalie graduated with honors from Dawson’s professional theatre program, class of 1996. She has kept training in various workshops with well known directors Robert Favreau and Lea Pool.
Natalie is a perfectly bilingual (English, French) actor which allows her to work in both official languages. Her knowledge of Arabic and Spanish have come in handy since her casting is somewhat non-specific. That has allowed her to play anything from a cop to an extravagant Dominican woman, an “in the closet” Arabic girl or an overbearing multitasking Algerian/Egyptian mother. Natalie has also interpreted non-specific ethnic characters such as a prison guard, a detective or a loving daughter dealing with her aging mother.
Natalie has had the same diverse experience on stage playing either a First Nation inmate, Armenian and Turkish women coping with the genocide or an Indian/Canadian woman dealing with memories of the Air India Crash while trying to help a Refugee.
