Hallie Seline is a Montreal/Toronto-based actor with her home-base in Toronto. After graduating from the Professional Acting program at Sheridan College and the Theatre and Drama Studies Specialist joint program from the University of Toronto, Hallie has since been busy growing roots in Toronto. She is one of the founding members of The Howland Company, one of Toronto’s most exciting independent theatre ensembles, past RBC Emerging Company in Residence at Canadian Stage, and best known for their inaugural production of 52 PICK-UP, which enjoyed four sold-out runs.
2017 was an exciting and busy season of growth and new adventures. She kicked it off in the winter by re-joining the company of Shakespeare BASH’d for the fourth time as Olivia in Twelfth Night. In the spring she moved from the stage to camera, filming DOS, a sci-fi short film, which she starred in and helped to produce. In the summer she had the pleasure of returning to beautiful Kincardine as Dee in Mark Crawford’s hilarious comedy Stag and Doe at the Bluewater Summer Playhouse.
Starting 2018 with a bang, Hallie was the lead producer and acted as part of the ensemble of The Howland Company’s Toronto premiere of PUNK ROCK by English playwright Simon Stephens, directed by Gregory Prest, which received an “Outstanding Ensemble” Dora Mavor Moore Award nomination. She was thrilled to follow this with acting in the Toronto Premiere of Pulitzer-finalist The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe, a Howland Company and Crow’s Theatre production this past Fall, recently selected as one of the Top 10 Theatre Shows of 2018 by the Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail and NOW Magazine alongside PUNK ROCK.
Among the many other hats she likes to wear, from marketing, publicity, producing and sound designing, she is also the Co-Founder and Editor in Chief of inthegreenroom.ca, a theatre/arts website dedicated to be a “space for artists to connect off stage”.
