What can you tell me about Meaghan Rath from “Being Human”?
—Cole Oliver, Flint, Mich.
The Montreal, Canada-born Rath, 26, attended Dawson College, studying film and TV, prior to launching her showbiz career.
Her first job as a series regular was on the Canadian series, “15/Love,” which earned her a 2006 Gemini Award for Best Performance in a Youth or Children’s Program or Series.
Her other television credits include the ABC Family movie “Cyberbully,” a starring role on “The Assistants,” guest-starring roles in Disney Channel’s “Aaron Stone,” CBC’s “18 to Life” and, most recently, “Flashpoint.”
In addition to her television roles, Rath appeared in the independent feature films “Prom Wars” and “Lost and Delirious,” a Sundance Film Festival hit.
In addition to acting, Rath is trying her hand behind the scenes as executive producer of an indie film, “White Buffalo,” that she also stars in with her “Being Human” co-star Sam Huntington.
“It’s turning out to be such a beautiful film, and the script is so fresh and original,” she says. “It’s almost a dramatic comedy, but it’s the anti-date movie because it’s very true to life in a sense that we don’t really necessarily end it in a happy way. It’s effective, because what we’re finding with the test screenings is that people have a really strong reaction to it, which is exactly the intention.”
Rath, who is Austrian on her father’s side and Indian on her mother’s, continues to live in Montreal, where “Being Human” films.
