A native of Toronto, Canada, Brittany Bristow began acting at the age of six. At the age 12, after numerous national commercials, a television guest star appearance and four films, she auditioned for Canada’s National Ballet School. Upon acceptance, she put her acting career on hold to attend the prestigious program and complete her studies. In 2008, Bristow graduated from the professional training program and returned to acting, her true passion. Taking time to study through intensive programs at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York and with Larry Moss, she continues to find further passion and joy for the work she does.
Interested in understanding every aspect of the industry, Bristow has worked as a producer, writer and script editor. At the end of 2017, she was elated to accept the CIFF (Canadian International Faith & Family Film Festival) Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Johanna in Saul: The Journey to Damascus.
Over the past few years, Bristow has been delighted to work on several projects with Hallmark Channel, including “Love Blossoms,” “Royal Matchmaker,” “Christmas Next Door,” “Love on Safari,” “Christmas at the Palace” and “Love, Romance & Chocolate.” She is elated for “Holiday Date” to be her debut as a leading lady with the network. Bristow is also currently starring in the television series “Rising Suns” and serves as host of “Wildlife Quest,” a show created, written and produced with her family for National Geographic.
