Actor | Writer | Producer | Host
Natasha is a Canadian Screen Award winning actor based out of Toronto, best known for having played titular role in the hit series and feature film Carmilla.
Since gaining notoriety for her portrayal of the "broody lesbian vampire" she has had a number of guest starring roles on TV shows such as: Murdoch Mysteries and Slasher, as well as lead roles in female-driven movies such as: Almost Adults and Freelancers Anonymous. She has also earned a dedicated global fanbase on social media, where she is admired for her candid posts about mental health awareness, intersectional feminism, and positive 2SLGBTQ+ representation.
In addition to acting and her social influence, Natasha has a background a classically trained soprano as a former Bachelor of Music student at McGill University, and experience as a host and presenter as the former face of the YouTube network KindaTV. In 2017, alongside her friend and colleague Annie Briggs, Natasha co-wrote and co-produced the 2018 NYC Web Fest Award winning comedy CLAIREvoyant (a show about two roommates who pretend to be psychics to pay their rent) with Executive Producer Shaftesbury Digital.
She has also performed live in improv, sketch, musical, and cabaret shows around North America, but when she isn't wearing many hats (sometimes literally) she enjoys connecting with fans at conventions and long walks on the beach... with her adopted rescue dog. Currently, she is hosting a new interview-based podcast called "Vanlis Presents" (available for free on Apple Podcasts & Spotify) and probably drinking too much coffee.
