Date of Birth: February 8, 1990
Brittany Bristow has always been a performer. The Toronto native began her career in the spotlight doing television commercials as a child and went on to train with the National Ballet of Canada, performing alongside world famous dancers and artists. But for Bristow, her love for dancing is equally shared with a passion for acting.
She made her film debut at age 10 in the Canadian film Perfect Pie, which screened at the 2002 Toronto International Film Festival. She followed that up with a role in the CBS TV movie Profoundly Normal, starring Kirstie Alley. In 2003, she starred in the beloved feature film Blizzard, as a young girl whose aunt tells her a story about a reindeer. Television appearances include guest roles on 1-800-Missing, Murdoch Mysteries and a starring role as the title character's ballet-dancing love interest on the Family Channel series Baxter.
Brittany again hit the big screen in the title role in the 2011 Canadian film Sophie, directed by her father, Leif Bristow. The film tells the story of a young ballerina, Sophie, who runs off and joins the circus in an attempt to save her best friend Sheba, a five-ton elephant, who was sold by her parents to cover the rising costs of dance training.
