Montreal native Cristina Rosato continues her rise in Canada's film and television industry through a number of new, diverse, and marking roles. Among her many upcoming appearances is a recurring role on the new highly-anticipated French television series "Les Jeunes Loups," directed by Erik Canuel, to be diffused on TVA. Rosato recently appeared in the two-part miniseries, "Exploding Sun" alongside David James Elliott and Julia Ormond, which aired in April on Reelz Channel in the United States and Space Channel in Canada.
Rosato played the role of Samantha Kaye on the popular CBC series "Republic of Doyle," which aired in April 2013. The multi-talented, multilingual actor also plays Francesca on ABC's "Rookie Blue." Her ability to speak several languages fluently helped her book the role of Francesca, which was rewritten to be an Italian-speaking character after Cristina auditioned for the role speaking in an Italian accent.
Rosato can also be seen alongside some of Canada's most notable performances on the hit Radio-Canada French television series "Trauma." The series, created and produced by Fabienne Larouche, is in its fourth season and as popular as ever with audiences and critics alike. The drama follows the lives of emergency room doctors, with Rosato among the ensemble cast, playing a controversial Italian neurosurgeon, Dr. Giulia Amaro.
Rosato's busy slate of projects are just the latest credits in an already impressive career for the actor. Past credits include roles on CBS' "Flashpoint," Showcase's "Lost Girl," the Space TV movie "Borealis," and "XIII: The Series," opposite Stuart Townsend.
Rosato is proudest of her starring role in the bilingual horror film "Territories," in which she played a writer forced to give up false information while being tortured as a hostage at Guantanamo. The film was shot in both French and English and challenged her as an actress both physically and emotionally, through long hours of shooting in frigid Montreal temperatures.
The gorgeous actress splits her time between Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Los Angeles, and New York, while continuing to expand her talents both in front of and behind the camera. She maintains a healthy and active lifestyle through running, yoga, ballet, and doing random headstands!
