Tanya Reid

Although Tanya Reid acted throughout her school years, the Nanaimo, B.C. native first began performing professionally when she broke onto the commercial and music video scene. She appeared in over thirty national and international commercials.

She has since amassed an impressive list of television and film credits including a recurring role in the series Point Blank; and guest turns on DaVinci's Inquest, Seven Days, The Lone Gunman, 2Gether, Cold Squad, The Outer Limits, Stargate SG-1, and Welcome to Paradox.

Some of her film credits include playing an abused wife in Dax Xenis' Free, a Russian bride in Wesley Lowe's Exiles in Paradise, and a woman in search of a faith healer in Stephen Gylenhaal's Resurrection as well as numerous short films.

Theatrically trained, Reid studied her craft at Vancouver's Gastown Actor's Studio, and the Lyric School of Acting. She also trained privately with Vancouver actor and coach Bill McDonald. She has appeared in several plays including Jane Martin's Talking With directed by Michael Scholar.

Reid participated in Vancouver's annual 48 Hour Film Festival for the past two years. Teams of 10 filmmakers are presented with the daunting challenge of writing and producing a 10-minute film in an allotted 48 hours. In 2000, Reid's first collaboration, Hunger At The Turf, earned her team the People's Choice and Best Director Awards. The following year, Reid teamed up again to produce a second film, Hope and Redemption.

She is currently writing an imaginative and thought provoking children's book that is being illustrated by the talented Vancouver artist Ron Rumak.

When she's not on location, Tanya Reid makes her home in Vancouver.
