Natasha is a Canadian Screen Award winning actress, best known for having played the titular role in the digital phenomenon and film Carmilla. Since gaining notoriety for her portrayal of the “broody lesbian vampire” in 2014, she has amassed a loyal fan base of over 286K collective followers on social media, where she is globally admired for her sense of humour and support of LGBTQ+ visibility and mental health awareness.
With a background as a trained classical singer, Natasha studied voice performance at McGill University in Montréal where she was also an active member of the Montréal Improv Theatre community. Before pursuing a career in film and television, Natasha performed in over 15 musicals and, since then, has had numerous roles in features and series including guest starring spots on shows such as Slasher and Murdoch Mysteries. In 2015 she made her big screen debut with a leading role in the coming-of-age film Almost Adults which premiered on Netflix, and she was ranked #5 on AfterEllen.com’s “Hot 100” list of sexiest women. Two years later, she won the “Audience Choice” award with over two million votes at Canadian Screen Awards in Toronto. In 2018, she made her American screen debut with a lead role in the female-driven comedy Freelancers Anonymous, which was one of the first 12 movies to receive the "ReFrame Stamp" by IMDb Pro and the Sundance Institute for gender equality both in front of, and behind, the camera. Most recently, you can catch her in several episodes of another female-centric comedy series called Band Ladies available on HighBall TV.
In addition to acting, Natasha co-created, co-wrote, and co-produced the NYC Web Fest award-winning digital dramedy series CLAIREvoyant with Canadian production company Shaftesbury, and her creative partner Annie Briggs. All 14 episodes are available to watch on Shaftesbury's flagship YouTube channel “KindaTV” where Natasha also worked as a host and content creator from 2016-2018, increasing the channel's subscribers to over 200K during her tenure.
But when Natasha isn't wearing many hats (sometimes literally) she loves travelling the world to meet her fans at conventions, and hanging out with her adopted rescue dog. She is also currently working on her first children’s book, and frequently volunteers with Canadian non-profit “Get Real Movement” focused on combatting discrimination in schools.
