Rebecca's first role in a major film came in Academy Award-nominated director, Atom Egoyan's Where the Truth Lies, in which she played a power-hungry publicist opposite Kevin Bacon and Colin Firth. The film had its world premiere in Cannes before making its North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Rebecca was born in the small town of Cobourg, Ontario, where her childhood years were devoted to figure skating, horseback riding, and writing and performing plays with her friends. In her teens, Rebecca continued to pursue her interest in drama, performing in regional and youth theater productions. However, her talent at figure skating began to turn into a full time pursuit, and at 16, she moved to Toronto for more advanced level training. By 18, Rebecca was a nationally ranked skater, leading to a contract with Disney On Ice which took her on an extensive tour through the United States, Japan and South East Asia.
After retiring from figure skating at the age of 21, Rebecca turned her attention back to acting. Her formal training began in Sydney, Australia studying acting with John Noble (Fringe, Lord of the Rings), and voice with Bill Pepper (National Institute of Dramatic Arts). After a year and a half in Sydney, Rebecca returned to Toronto where she continued to study acting and pursue her career. At the same time, she also completed a degree in History and English, graduating with distinction from the University of Toronto.
Rebecca has landed roles in feature films and major network television series including Battlestar Galactica, Smallville and Supernatural. In 2010 she worked opposite Heather Locklear in Lifetime Television’s He Loves Me and in 2012, her comedy and improv skills were showcased playing a fed up publishing executive alongside Emmanuelle Vaugier and Carson Kressley in Hallmark Channel’s It’s Christmas, Carol!
In 2013 Rebecca starred in leading roles in the sci-fi thriller The Woods and the comedy Focus, while also guest-starring opposite acclaimed comedian Harland Williams in the CTV sitcom Package Deal, produced by Andrew Orenstein (Malcolm in the Middle, 3rd Rock from the Sun) and Denise Moss (Frasier, Roseanne).
