Vancouver native Teryl Rothery has had a keen interest in performing arts since childhood. Her outgoing personality gravitated her towards the entertainment industry, beginning her career as a dancer at age 13 when she performed in her first musical, Bye Bye Birdie. She made her first television appearance five years later on a CBC Halloween special and has been delighting audiences ever since.
After performing voiceover work for the English-language version of the popular anime series “Ranma 1⁄2,” Rothery made her CBS/Fox MOW debut with the Christopher Reeve drama “Mortal Sins” – her first of more than two dozen made-for-TV movies in 10 years. Her most recent include the Hallmark Channel Original Movies “Valentine in the Vineyard,” “Road to Christmas,” “Christmas Getaway” and “All for Love;” the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Originals “A Bramble House Christmas” and “Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: The Disappearing Game” and Lifetime’s “Santa’s Boots.” Her theatrical features include the family films Andre, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Masterminds with Patrick Stewart. She was featured in Christopher Guest’s cult comedy Best in Show and held co-starring roles in “Video Voyeur” with Angie Harmon, “The Book of Ruth” with Christine Lahti, “The Twelve Days of Christmas Eve” with Molly Shannon and Whisper with Josh Holloway.
Rothery has made guest appearances on The CW’s longest running hit “Supernatural” and “iZombie,” Netflix’s “The Killing,” A&E’s “Bates Motel,” Bravo’s “Imposters,” Showtime’s “The Outer Limits,” and Fox’s fan favorite series “The X-Files.” Rothery has had recurring roles on Showtime’s “Jeremiah” and Fox’s “Wayward Pines” and large recurring roles on Netflix’s “Travelers,” The CW’s “Arrow” and “Hellcats,” ABC’s “The Good Doctor,” Freeform’s “Kyle XY” and SYFY’s “Battlestar Galactica” spinoff “Caprica.” Rothery’s television career also extends into animation, where she has been the voice of lead and supporting characters for multiple series such as “Dragonball Z,” “Robocop,” “Reboot,” “Little Prince,” “Barbie,” “Care Bears” and “Martha Speaks.”
Rothery has received four Leo Awards nominations: Best Performance by a Female in a Short Drama for her performance in comedy short “Coffee Diva,” a nomination for her portrayal of Dr. Janet Fraiser in Showtime’s “Stargate SG-1,” one more for her terrific performance in CHUM’s “The Collector” and another for Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series for her past recurring role in Global’s “The Guard.” She was also nominated for a Jessie Award for her role as Claire in Tempus Theatre’s 2007 production of A Delicate Balance.
Rothery is best known and loved for her portrayal of Dr. Janet Fraiser on Showtime’s “Stargate: SG-1” and her starring role opposite Andie MacDowell in the Hallmark Channel Original Series “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove.” Rothery recently filmed Hallmark Channel’s “Chesapeake Shores” with Diane Ladd and Treat Williams.
