"The 'Sarah Angelle Effect' is this: great people follow in her wake; people who didn't know her before are soon striving to meet her standard; and an atmosphere and mutual generosity arises when she's at the centre."
Rob Langford, Dir. Genius Podcast
Hi! I'm Sarah Alma Angelle (formerly "Marchand," in case there's any confusion). I started acting in my teens as a way to combat my social anxiety. The anxiety never left, but neither did my love for performing. Most of my experience is in theatre, but since the pandemic I have shifted my focus to film.
Stylistically, I'm fascinated by the weird and wacky: In 2016, I founded alma matters productions, a company that prioritizes new Canadian work from underrepresented communities.
I hold a BFA in Theatre and English Literature from Concordia University and an MA in Performance Studies from The University of Toronto. I am the recipient of the Hnatyshyn Foundation's Emerging Artist Grant in Acting, was nominated for The Second City's Tim Sims Award for Best Emerging Comedian, and was recently awarded The Arts Club's Bill Millerd Artist Fund for Producing.
As a bi-coastal artist my goal is to continue networking across Canada. Let's collaborate?
"Without question or doubt about this artist, I would highly endorse all support to secure her spot as a professional actress."
