Madeleine Scovil

    Acting (2023)

    Madeleine is a bilingual actor, director, educator, and singer currently based in Montreal. She is dedicated to exploring how different mediums - from boxing to improvisation - lend themselves to storytelling and hopes to always be expanding her skillset.

    Madeleine is on the verge of graduating from the National Theatre School of Canada where she has learned from some of Canada’s leading creatives: Jackie Maxwell (Chekhov), Graeme Somerville/ Julia Course (Shaw), Tim Welham/Jessica B. Hill (Shakespeare), Jonathan Patterson/Jonathan Monro/Laurel Thompson (Voice), Jivesh Parasram/Christine Quintana (Creation Project/devised work) and Anita Nittoly/John Stead/David Chinchilla (Stage Combat).

    Throughout her training, she has given particular attention to dialects (Kirsten Hawson), movement (Laban and neutral/expressive mask - Rebecca Harper) and stage combat with the goal of expanding into video games, voice-overs, and motion capture.

    Some of Madeleine’s recent credits include Feste in Twelfth Night directed by Danielle Irvine, Myrrah/Hunger/Psyche in Metamorphoses directed by Eda Holmes and 365 Days/365 Plays directed by Alisa Palmer. Her next performance will be as Cop in Middletown directed by Jessica Carmichael.

    Prior to NTS, much of her time was dedicated to theatre education. Some of her most rewarding experiences were working as an assistant director to Ash Knight in the summer program at the Stratford Festival and touring as a member and then director of the Barefoot Players. She works as a part-time instructor at the Segal Centre Academy and has great respect and enthusiasm for TYA. She’s excited about how storytelling is evolving and would love to bring her curiosity and dedication to your next project!
