Grace Vukovic is an actor who was born in England and raised on the West Coast of Canada, on Coast Salish Territory, in a family of artists and performers.
She believes that the world needs storytellers who care radically about the stories that they tell and the people they tell them with. Grace is profoundly interested in the resilience of humanity and our need to find levity and joy in even the darkest of moments. It is this juxtaposition and the pursuit of joy that she wants most to explore in her art. She is also fascinated by an ensemble's ability to tap into the essence of a story and the mutual support of its members in the telling of it, be it through film, theatre or television.
Grace was especially transformed by movement training at the National Theatre School and would like to express her immense thanks to Rebbeca Harper (Head of Movement). She was also deeply impacted by ahdri zhina mandiela (Creation), Brenda Bazinet (Canadian Scene Study), Marla McLean and Graeme Somerville (Shaw and Contemporary Shavians), Jackie Maxwell (Chekhov), Martha Burns (Actors Process) and Laurel Thomson (head of Voice)!
Before arriving at NTS, Grace had studied filmmaking at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver and hopes to continue creating work through many mediums in the future.
