What was your first ACTRA gig?

JB – “The Battle of Mary Kay” – actor level, a scene with Parker Posey and Rebecca Gibson. I had no idea what to expect.

What was your most memorable role?

JB – Not sure what was most memorable for audiences, but on “The Capture of the Green River Killer”, I had to eat as many cookies as I could in a very short period of time. Of course, for the turn-around, I had to remember every bite for every line! Stomach ache that day – why oatmeal?!!

What is your dream role?

JB – One in which I am encouraged to be creative.

How has being an ACTRA member benefitted you?

JB – ACTRA helped me when a production company tried to hire me and not pay wages. I learned a great deal about labour rights and regulations then.

What do you look forward to most in serving on council?

JB – It is a privilege and an opportunity to be involved with an organization that makes a significant difference in the lives of artists. I am looking forward to educating members and non-members about ACTRA.
