“Acting is not rocket science, but it is an art form. What you are doing is illuminating humanity.”
– Viola Davis

Cecilly was that kid in school that always chose to do a presentation or perform a skit over writing a report when given an option on projects. Years of competitive sports tried to pull her away from the stage but she found it at last in grade 11 when she was cast in a Cinderella pantomime.

Cecilly is a graduate of the University of Victoria where she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. While she enjoyed discovering the history of theatre in the classroom, she always made sure to keep performing in the community as well. Cecilly performed in several musicals during her time in Victoria before taking a chance and auditioning for Theatre Under The Stars’ production of Hairpsray, where she booked the iconic role of Motormouth Maybelle under the direction of Sarah Rodgers.

Since then, Cecilly has been fortunate to perform in stage productions with local theatres such as The Arts Club, Pacific Theatre, Carousel Theatre, Urban Ink, and Geekenders. Her strong alto voice, bold acting and affinity to movement built a solid reputation of one of Vancouver’s top triple threat artists.

Cecilly then made the natural transition into the tv and film world, booking numerous national commercials and appearing on the Junos with Canadian recording artist Daniel Caesar. She made her television debut on Man In The High Castle (Prime Video), and continued to book roles in Virgin River (Netflix), and Supernatural (CW). Watch for Cecilly in a recurring role in season 2 of NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, and an upcoming feature film on Netflix in 2021.

When not busy on set or doing a show, Cecilly trains with Jeb Beach and Associates. Cecilly is also a proud alumni of the Arts Club Actors Intensive (Dean Paul Gibson/Program Director and Scott Bellis/Head Instructor).
