Toronto-born super-star Katie Boland sits down with us for an intimate conversation, reflecting on life after certain milestones, insight into new and exciting projects and a look at the evolution of her career as an artist.
Katie Boland is a name heard of quite a bit within the Canadian arts scene. Rightly so too! Boland kicked off her career at the age 9, and now only 25, she has established herself as a powerhouse artist. Highlighted by Elle Canada as one of the three Canadians to watch, Boland has had over 40 starring roles, written a book, dived into the world of writing and has even dabbled in producing. In 2011, she was recognized as one of TIFF’s Rising Stars, a program that showcases new Canadian acting talent at the Toronto International Film Festival and designed to find the next generation of Canadian actors poised for international success.
Looking is the Original Sin is her latest upcoming feature film, making a debut at Cannes 2013. Directed by her mum, Gail Harvey, Boland stars along side Maria del Mar and also takes on the role as one of the producers. She has a web series currently in development called Long Story, Short, based around a collection of her personal essays. It was recently bought by Shaftesbury Films (Murdoch Mysteries) and will see a late 2013 distribution. She also co-wrote and stars in short film, based around her short story Sweetieface. The short is being directed by Republic of Doyle’s Mark O’Brien.
Frankly, it would take a million years to put into context just how much Boland is involved with. This young superstar has established herself as one of Canada’s top talent and we are excited to see all her future projects!
