Drama classes at Sir James Dunn Collegiate and Vocational School and her late grandmother helped launch Trish Rainone’s acting career.

An interview with the Sault Ste. Marie native, now based in Toronto, appears on www.ebosscanada.com, a Canadian entertainment industry website.

Rainone says drama class at the Dunn “cured” her fear of speaking in front of others.

Her grandmother Joyce Sutherland, who died in January 2017, “was the funniest lady I know.

I’m becoming more confident with who I am lately and letting my funny show,” said Rainone. “She’s responsible for that. She taught me comedy without realizing she was teaching me.”

Working with director Brad Turner (24) on V-Wars was a career highlight.

I was obsessed with 24,” said Rainone. “It took over my whole world when it was on. Being a TV actor for me at that time was a pipe dream.”

Comedy is the Algoma University graduate’s preferred genre, but Rainone is keen to do an action film.

She writes daily and eyes a career in screenwriting.

Rainone and creative partner Katie Uhlmann want to raise $50,000 to shoot the second season of their web series, My Roommate’s an Escort, in the Sault this year.

She was nominated for best actress in a short film (One Night Stand) at Milan International Film Festival in December.
