Wendy Crewson


B: May 9, 1956 in Hamilton, Ontario

Wendy Crewson wanted to be an actress from the time she was just a little girl. Her dad`s business caused the family to move quite a bit, but whenever there was an opportunity, she appeared in school plays. After graduating from high school in Pointe Claire, on the west island of Montréal, Crewson went to John Abbott College to study theatre arts. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens University in Kingston, Ontario before moving to London to study at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Arts. Crewson won a Gemini Award in 1999 for her searing performance in the right-to-die drama, At the End of the Day: The Sue Rodriguez Story and another in 2006 for her role in The Man Who Lost Himself. Crewson played the role of Dr. Dana Kinny on the series Saving Hope. In 2013 she received an inaugural Canadian Screen Award for her work on that series. Wendy Crewson is pictured with her 2017 Canadian Screen Award for best performance by an actress in a featured supporting role in a dramatic program or series for her role in Superchannel’s Slasher.
