Lisa Berry is the kind of actress that sets her sights on something and goes after it with passionate determination. Since graduating from the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, Lisa has worked at both the Stratfordand Shaw Festivals, and has played lead roles on all the main Canadian stages. Notable roles include her reprisal of Mayme in Lynne Nottage’s Intimate Apparel, which made its Canadian premiere at CanStage, and Mrs. Muller in Doubt. A Parable where she shared the stage with Canada’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding star, Fiona Reid.
Lisa enjoys variety in her roles, so, when she’s not navigating her way through relentless life and death battles on the operating table as Captain Pam Everwood on ABC and Global’s medical drama Combat Hospital, she’s heating things up in the board room as Zoe Figgis, one of the evil executive partners on NBC’s newest lawyer drama, The Firm.
Lisa recently appeared on the Emmy nominated CTV series Nikita as Harriet a local news reporter eager to get her next big story.
Coming up, Lisa will appear in the new Cinemax television series The Transporter, an adaptation of Luc Besson’s film franchise. The Transporter is centered on an ex-Special Force operator, Frank Martin, now making a living as a no-questions-asked transporter of goods. Lisa plays the Transplant Coordinator, acting as the liaison between the Transporter and the Client. Viewers can tune in to this highly anticipated show when it airs later in the year.
While Lisa continues to establish herself as one of the industry’s most promising talents to watch, her passion is not limited to entertaining. This extremely hard working actress continues to push her self – literally – in her personal life. She is her own success story, losing over 80 lbs. herself, and it is that same passion that she has for health and fitness that she puts in to each of her roles.
