Description

Join us for our fourth REDTALKS event presented on October 4, 2018 with Canadian actress and advocate Lucy DeCoutere.

Lucy DeCoutere, a Story of Resilience

Best known for her work over the last 16 years on Trailer Park Boys, Lucy DeCoutere is an actor, advocate and inspiration to many, for having come forward to help generate important dialogue around sexual abuse and violence against women.

In film, her first experience with acting was as a background performer in Thom Fitzgerald's feature film, The Hanging Garden. It was on this set that she came to understand that the real magic of filmmaking is what happens behind-the-scenes. She was captivated by the synergy of the crew in watching them bring an imaginary world to life.

She then decided to dedicate the next decade to working on any project that would have her in various roles, from associate producing, casting, through to directing.

Apart from her experiences on set, Lucy is a ranking officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force since 2010 and has received a graduate diploma in communication studies from Concordia University.

Lucy lives in Halifax in an old converted movie house. Lucy is a vegetarian who makes killer ravioli and gets really bored of telling people what her protein sources are. Lucy is a Virgo.
