Gemini Award-winning actress, Wendy Crewson, Artsci’77, recently visited campus for three days as part of the Visiting Artist Stage and Screen program.

Among Crewson’s scores of credits are such feature films as Air Force One (opposite Harrison Ford) and Away From Her (with Julie Christie and Gordon Pinsent, LLD’88), and popular television series including 24 and ReGenesis.

While she was on campus, Crewson visited classes in the Drama and Film and Media Studies departments (see above photo), where she discussed acting techniques for both theatre and film, directing for short films, the Canadian film and television industry, and her role in Perfect Pie, a film adaptation of a play by renowned Canadian playwright Judith Thompson, Artsci’76, that explores the topic of female friendship.

A public screening of that film was held in Chernoff Hall, and afterward Crewson answered questions and discussed her work with the audience.
