Dorly Jean-Louis


B: in Hispaniola, Republic of Haiti

Dorly Jean-Louis was born on the island of Hispaniola, Republic of Haiti. Her parents immigrated to Montreal before settling in Ottawa where she grew up. Now based in Toronto, she took a leap of faith and belief in her aptitudes to launch her acting career. After completing her media studies at Humber College she worked part-time at a financial institution solely to pay her bills. The remainder of the workweek was dedicated to her craft including acting classes. Equipped with a postgraduate degree in broadcast journalism, Dorly started her career landing mostly journalistic roles from news anchor to show host or TV interviewer. She got her first big break when she landed a principal role in the Hallmark romantic film Daniel’s Daughter playing Talisha, an inquisitive entertainment news reporter interviewing New York socialite Kate Madigan played by Laura Leighton. Fluent in both official languages, Dorly recently landed a recurring role showcasing her comedic chops on the second season of the French television series Zik, on TFO. The show explores the world of music, its history, culture and sound. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honours in Mass Communication from the University of Ottawa, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism from Humber College School of Media Studies and a Canadian Fashion Designer Diploma from the Richard Robinson Fashion Design Academy.
