Born in Montreal, QC and raised in Toronto, ON, Clark Backo has delved into the world of acting. She grew up immersed in her academic life, dance and modeling but it was her father’s persistent storytelling throughout her childhood that would eventually pull her into the acting industry.
During her year off between high school and university for Sciences, Clark decided to take acting classes. It wasn’t until she enrolled in on-going scene study classes with Jock MacDonald at Straeon Studios that she really starting practicing the art of storytelling; just like her father. Now both on-set and in class, Clark enjoys challenging herself by taking on stories that go beyond herself. Clark is eager to tell stories that aren’t being told to give people a voice that otherwise wouldn’t have one.
Clark has had the pleasure of working on projects such as roles on CBC’s Shoot the Messenger, Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, and Global’s Remedy. She is also known for her work in the film Sadie’s Last Days on Earth and 21 Thunder.
