Personal Quote:

[Of her husband, actor Paul Gross] He's responsible for all the light bulbs in the house. Right now I'm noticing three are out in the kitchen. He must be distracted by something.


Founded the "Toronto Arts for Youth" program in 1993. This program offers after-school arts classes, trips to live performances and co-operative education initiatives to young people, many of whom would not otherwise have access to these opportunities. This learning environment provides an alternative for kids who may otherwise be involved with violence, crime and drugs. See more »
