Kimberly Sustad was born in Ottawa and raised in Winnipeg, Canada. A self-professed tomboy, she grew up riding horses and at 5’ 10” shooting hoops, though neither of these skills have yet been required for her roles. A compelling performer, Sustad enjoys keeping her acting gigs – which range from playing supportive sister Vivian Patterson in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie, “A Bride for Christmas” to wicked witch Madeline Templeton in “Spookville” – as varied as her hobbies, which range from accruing different hot sauces to rocking out to Arabic pop music.
A Sci-Fi regular, Sustad has appeared in several TV series, including “Supernatural,” “Continuum,” “Primeval: New World” and J.J. Abrams’ “Alcatraz.” Additionally, she’s shared the small screen with Kirstie Alley in “Baby Sellers” and Kristin Lehman in “Motive.”
On the stage, Sustad loves a good farce, having starred in Lewis Black’s One Slight Hitch at Seattle’s A Contemporary Theater and Marc Camoletti’s Boeing-Boeing at Vancouver’s Arts Club.
In real life, she has a recurring role playing world traveler, having lived in Ecuador, South Korea, Taiwan, four U.S. states and three Canadian provinces.
