ACTRA Awards

Five actors from three car­toon series have been nom­i­nated for Out­stand­ing Per­for­mance – Voice in time for the 10th Anniver­sary ACTRA Awards in Toronto, to be pre­sented at the Carlu on Sat­ur­day, Feb­ru­ary 25.

Per­form­ers from Rad­i­cal Sheep Pro­duc­tions’ Stella and Sam received two nom­i­na­tions. Rob­bie Fitzroy is up for the role of the Box Builders in the series, while Rachel Mar­cus and Miles John­son received a joint nom­i­na­tion for their por­trayal of the Night Fairies.

Stacey Depass of The Adven­tures of Chuck and Friends, a co-production of Nel­vana and Has­bro Stu­dios, is up for an ACTRA Award for voic­ing Boomer the Snow­plow. Mik­los Per­lus of Side­kick, another Nel­vana series, was rec­og­nized for his role as Eric Squared.

A nom­i­na­tion also went to Billy MacLel­lan as the voice of The Promise in CBC Radio’s award-winning drama Afghanada.

The nom­i­nees this year range from age 7 to age 82 and include a diver­sity of per­form­ers as well as some of Canada’s biggest names and great­est actors,” ACTRA Toronto pres­i­dent Heather Allin said Tues­day. “It’s a strong year and will make the final jury selec­tion a dif­fi­cult task. It’s an impres­sive snap­shot of the cur­rent depth and breadth of Canada’s act­ing talent.”

Rick Mer­cer will be pre­sented with ACTRA Toronto’s 2012 Award of Excel­lence at the awards cel­e­bra­tion. The Award of Excel­lence rec­og­nizes an excep­tional body of work and a com­mit­ment to advo­cacy on behalf of all performers.

The awards gala will be hosted by comic Elvira Kurt and will fea­ture live musi­cal per­for­mances by blues band Raoul and The Big Time, fronted by Raoul Bhaneja.

ACTRA Toronto is the largest orga­ni­za­tion within ACTRA, rep­re­sent­ing over 15,000 of Canada’s 21,000 pro­fes­sional per­form­ers work­ing in the country’s English-language recorded media.
