Originally from Guelph, Ontario, Toronto based actor Ry Barrett changed focus from music to acting in the early 2000s. After playing music and devoting time with a few alternative rock and punk bands, Ry began his career as the lead character in the 2004 Lions Gate horror-comedy release, Desperate Souls. He continued acting with a steady incline of intriguing roles, following up in another Lions Gate genre release Psycho Ward, and the genre festival favorites, Dead Genesis and If A Tree Falls which cemented his love of the art and process. Barrett then went on to play the role of the central character in the psychological thriller Neverlost, a role he received critical commendation for, as well as a 2011 Toronto International Film and Video Award for Best Actor in a Feature. He has played a variety of characters demonstrating a dynamic range as an actor, from intense personal dramas, action and horror villains and heroes, comedies, and even in the odd children’s film.

A born lover of cinema, and published story and songwriter, Ry’s interests quickly branched into screenwriting and producing. In 2008, Ry teamed with director and friend Gabriel Carrer, developing, writing, producing and acting in the indie horror success, If A Tree Falls, and teamed again with Carrer for the award-winning The Demolisher. Ry has since written, directed and produced numerous projects and has continued to remain proficient in many aspects of the Canadian film landscape.

Thane Clarke headshot

Thane Clarke as Doug MacAulay

Thane Clarke is as pleased as punch to be involved in this home grown story by Susan Rodgers, playing the patriarch of the MacAulays in her movie Still the Water!

Thane got his start early in school musical theatre during the late sixties, which resulted in an invitation to be part of a newly formed young theatre group at the Confederation Centre (way back before the evolution of the Young Company). Alas, life got in the way, and no more treddin’ the floors until the Kensington Theatre came calling, which morphed into the Summerside Jubilee Players/Harbourfornt Theatre. They did some fantastic work in raising money for causes like Children’s Wish and School Breakfast Programs, as well as entertaining audiences from all over PEI.

Thane has performed in many plays/farces over the past 25 years, and also had bit parts in the TV series Emily of New Moon. Thanks to all cast/crew involved in the making of this ‘little movie that could.’
