Born in Toronto, the Gemini Award-nominated Ellen Dubin has enjoyed a highly unique and diverse career as an actor. She began her career as a ballet dancer and then worked in the theater doing a wide variety of characters – from Shakespeare to musicals to dramas to farce. Her penchant for landing bizarre and fascinating roles led to Ellen becoming a cult figure in the science fiction world.
The statuesque powerhouse achieved her cult status over four seasons as four separate characters in the international hit series Lexx – starting with the alien cannibal, Giggerota the Wicked, and culminating with Pope Genevieve, the only female Pope in sci-fi history.
She recently wrapped two sci-fi pilots: Nobility, with the legendary Walter Koenig, Doug Jones, Cas Anwar, Christopher Judge and Torri Higginson, and Starfall, where she worked with Andrew Jackson and Damien Puckler, shot in Reno, Nevada.
Ellen was nominated for the Gemini Award for her series lead role as Jeri Slate on the Leo Award-winning supernatural drama series, The Collector. She has repeatedly excelled as a comedic actor, including her role as a Tupperware-loving mom in the multi- award-winning Sundance Film Festival favorite, Napoleon Dynamite.
Ellen is honored to be the spokesperson for the Make A Wish Foundation in Toronto and Central Ontario and volunteers at the Los Angeles Mission. She is a member of Women in Film and Television, Women in Animation, Society of Voice Arts and Sciences and the Canadian Academy of Film and Television.
