DAY #16 - I can't believe it. Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! Time has absolutely flown by. Today's blog is all about the details of tomorrow's event!
First of all, I'm so excited to announce our host for the evening, Farid Yazdani! You've probably seen him around, as he has been working like crazy! Farid is also heavily involved with ACTRA's YEAA committee and is a regular host of the increasingly popular Toronto Monologue Slam!
A graduate of the School of Creative and Performing Arts in Etobicoke, he quickly began to book roles in TV, Film, and Commercials. He can be seen guest staring in shows such as Odd Squad (2014), My Babysitter's a Vampire (2011) and XIII: The Series (2011). His most recent achievements include winning the coveted Toronto Monologue Slam and producing and starring in his own film, "Day Players".
Recently signing with Bryan Misener of The Characters, one of Canada's top agencies, he can be seen on USA's Suits (2011) as the recurring character, David Green.
