“It’s a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
– J.R.R. Tolkien

Mercedes Davy (she/they) is a Non-Binary Toronto-based performer who burst onto the Performing Arts, and Film/TV scene in 2019. She is a 2019 graduate of Randolph College for the Performing Arts and has begun an extensive training program in Circus Skills, Stunts, and Stage Combat. In 2022 she had her Professional Debut in Mansfield Productions, ‘Peter Pan, the British Musical’ as Bill Jukes (Pirate), and as Fight Director and Choreographer. Mercedes, however, has been the Fight Captain (and/or choreographer) for many of the productions she has been a part of, including ‘King Lear’ (Multiple Roles), ‘The Oresteia’ (Slave Chorus), ‘City of Angels’ (Big Six), and ‘Shakespeare in Love’ (Sam).

Passionate, hard-working, and tenacious, Mercedes is currently training with the New Zealand Stunt School, as well as the New Zealand Stage and Screen Combat School, pursuing her dreams of being a well-rounded, action driven actor with the best training the world has to offer. She has also trained at Rapier Wit in Stage Combat, amongst many prestigious acting and dance academies. Her inspiration to go into performance was drawn from her love for combat and storytelling from the show, ‘Xena Warrior Princess’, and the epic ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, a career in theatre and performance was only a natural conclusion to her previous career in Martial Arts as a Sho-Dan Black Belt instructor in Goju Ryu Karate-Do, Kobudo, and Tai Chi Chuan.

Mercedes has traveled the world, an adventurous soul at heart, visiting theatres and seeing productions in England, Japan, New Zealand, and Dubai to name a few; she studied Creative Writing, English and Classical Theatre Literature at the University of Toronto, and has a love for Shakespeare, Musical Theatre, and all things creative. She has trained with coaches such as Micah Barnes and Thom Alison, Marie Baron, and many more. Mercedes lives for working with horses, swords, and experiencing new and exciting adventures in her career and life; and she continues to thrive and grow in this industry, overcoming gender-norms, and pushing the envelope as to what is possible for a tattooed, petite, non-binary individual in this day and age.
