Meg Tilly


B: February 14, 1960 in Long Beach, California

Meg Tilly was born on Valentine’s Day in 1960 and grew up on Texada Island, British Columbia. Her mother was a teacher and former stage actress who inspired the future actor and her sister Jennifer to pursue artistic endeavours. Meg Tilly initially began training as a dancer when she was 12 and showed a great deal of natural talent. Turning 17 she joined the Connecticut Ballet Company and later became part of the internationally touring evolutionary ballet group, the Throne Dance Company. Her aspiration to make a career out of dancing was brought to an end very suddenly when she seriously injured her back. Her dancing abilities and connection with the Throne Dance Company led to her first film role, as one of the many background dancers in the classic 1980 dance movie Fame. She is pictured at the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards.
