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 acclaimed sold-out productions like Casimir and Caroline, The Wolves, Punk Rock and 52 Pick-Up. She is a Dora Mavor Moore Award-winning actor (Casimir and Caroline & Punk Rock (n)) and the recipient of the 2018/19 Toronto Theatre Critics Association Award for Best Ensemble (The Wolves).
Most recently she kicked off 2020 as Caroline in The Howland Company’s North American premiere of CASIMIR AND CAROLINE by Ödön von Horváth at Crow’s Theatre, after a busy 2019 flexing her classical theatre muscles as Rosalind in As You Like It, with Shakespeare BASH’d, Toronto’s Best Site-Specific Theatre Company (NOW Magazine), and spending the summer acting in Marie Beath Badian’s Prairie Nurse as Patsy at the Lighthouse Theatre Festival, directed by Audrey Dwyer. She is looking forward to making her debut at the Blyth Festival as the lead in Alice Munro’s How I Met My Husband, and as twin sisters Dee Dee and Mia in Sophia Fabiilli’s Liars at a Funeral.
Among the many other hats she likes to wear, from producing, marketing, video direction, editing 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”.
