The above is Cara Gee, a Canadian actress born in Calgary, Alberta of Ojibwe decent. She stars as Kat Loving in the new CBC Drama Strange Empire, coming to television this fall. She’s garnered a Best Actress nomination at the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards for her performance in Empire of Dirt. Primarily a stage actress in Toronto where her acting credits have included productions of Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad, Daniel MacIvor’s Arigato, Tokyo, Tomson Highway’s The Rez Sisters Cliff Cardinal’s Stitch, Birdtown and Swanville’s 36 Little Plays About Hopeless Girls and Louise Dupré's Tout comme elle.
And holy crap, if ever Black Mask & Pale Rider was made into a television series and if Andrea Menard wasn’t available or executives wanted to go with a younger actress, I think I found a backup to play Shani Wennemein.
She’s so goddamn talented and phenomenal and we’re going to see a Tatiana-level rise for her. One can hope.
