She feels awkward and hates writing bios which is why it has her taken till to

Leslieville and could not be more grateful for being here. Thank you for the passion and the laughter.

Jenna Harder studied theatre at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. After working steadily in theatre in the Big Apple, she moved back to her homeland to pursue more on camera work and study with John Gordon of the Professional Actors Lab. Much love and thanks to the beautiful people involved in LESlieVILLE and keep a watchful eye on Youtube for Jenna in “The Convert Docs” going live on Christmas Day.
Meghan Campbell studied acting at York University and the Professional Actor’s Lab. When not she’s not busy being nerdy, spreading the joy of Lush Cosmetics to the world or bringing a wide range of characters to life in photoshoots and on convention floors, she stands up for the rights and freedoms of animals and has been known to adopt the occasional ill-tempered baby elephant. She has also dabbled in cat-burglary, been warmly embraced by Khal Drogo, AND Kevin Conroy for-real said her name in the Batman voice. If that isn’t enough, she once saw a bird in a bedding store and got to say “It walked on my pillow!“.
Toronto-based J.M Frey (pronounced “fry”) is the author of the science fiction novel Triptych. J.M. Frey is also a fanthropologist and pop culture scholar, appearing in podcasts, documentaries, and on television to discuss all things geeky through the lens of academia.

Sarah Grace is an actress, a writer and a cat person. As an actress she is relatively green, but she is ready to jump in, and thanks to her brief stint as a telemarketer she has developed the thick skin needed to survive in the business. She works, lives and looks for auditions in Toronto where she enjoys the theatre scene and is thrilled to be part of LESlieVILLE.
