May Charters

B: in Toronto, Ontario

As a child, May Charters would fall asleep to a sound that would not only shape her dreams, but her life. The sound was the click and reel of her father working in the wee hours of the morning on a Steinbeck editing machine that shared her childhood bedroom. Born in Toronto, yet raised on movie sets all over the world by her filmmaking parents (Rodney Charters ASC, CSC and Gillian Charters), she received a unique education from the informal of assisting wardrobe on the set, to her formal education at Trinity College School, NY Film Academy, LAMDA and the Paris American Academy for Art (Sorbonne). After studying acting at LAMDA she trained with various acting teachers in Toronto, NYC and LA. She also trained as a ballet and flamenco dancer. For her first feature length film, she joined forces with Mark Hug and together they wrote, produced, directed and starred in the international award winning feature Lovers in a Dangerous Time.
