With two Netflix series slated for 2020 release and currently in the spotlight as Sage on the revolutionary sci-fi hip hop series Utopia Falls (Hulu), Devyn Nekoda is watching her star rise fast in the industry. No stranger to leading roles, Devyn joined the “promising young cast” (Hollywood Reporter) of Utopia Falls after two seasons as Vanessa on Backstage (Family Channel/Disney/Netflix). Prior to that, she amassed co-starring appearances on Ghostwriter and Northern Rescue along with recurring roles on Degrassi, The Next Step, and Annedroids, as well as Raising Expectations with Jason Priestley and Molly Ringwald.

Prior to shifting her talents on camera, Nekoda had a formidable dance career at a young age, winning titles at events across North America, touring with the JUNO-nominated kids entertainers Splash’N Boots, and performing with Edyta Sliwinska (Dancing with the Stars). Driven by the determination and discipline of an accomplished dancer, she clinched her first-ever on-camera audition, landing a leading role in American Girl: Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight, then made her feature film debut in Disney’s The Swap.

Devyn also lent her talents to Mishka, a short film project that has benefited charitable organizations such as Little Warriors, An Ark of Hope for Children, The Unchained Project and Kids Help Phone.
