Forty Creek Whisky Commercial Shoot

by Bridget Ori


I love that the first commercial I booked in Toronto was for Tim Horton's. I felt I couldn't get more Canadian than that! I had the pleasure of shooting a commercial last week for another Canadian brand, Forty Creek Whiskey. This one was so much fun - the cast was huge and the commercial was done mostly in one shot, so it was a total adventure! I also met a ton of great people. I can't wait to see this one! 


Big Apple Film Festival 2016

by Bridget Ori


Based on True Events, a short film starring Adam Lowder and me, premiers tonight at the Big Apple Film Festival.  I can't be at the premier because of work in Toronto - all great things! - but I'm proud of the team at CGO & Gore Productions and everyone involved with the film. I'm wishing everyone a great night at the premier!


Tim Horton's Commercial Shoot

by Bridget Ori


Last week I had the pleasure of shooting a fun commercial for Tim Horton's.  It was my first shoot in Toronto, and it was awesome!  I actually booked another role a few weeks ago that would have been my first shoot, but the character ended up being written out.  I was bummed about that, but the booking helped me join ACTRA which is a great step.  Always a silver lining! 

Yesterday I did some ADR for the Tims commercial, and it was pretty fun to see a few different versions of the commercial being cut together in real time with my voiceover.  I can't wait to see the final product!


Dausch Duets at the Duplex NYC

by Bridget Ori


I'm so pleased to announce that I'll be singing with my dear friend, Kristin Dausch, at The Duplex on June 27.  Kristin and I met in 2009 when we were both cast in the Broadway's Rising Stars concert at The Town Hall.  You'll notice some other Rising Stars in the Dausch Duets cast, too!  Click here for tickets.


Canadian Residency

by Bridget Ori


I got great news last week - I've been approved for permanent residency in Canada!  I'll be crossing the border into Canada next week with all my paperwork, they'll give it a stamp, and my PR will be official.  This is a super exciting time for me as auditions heat up in Toronto.  I'm still back in NYC all the time for auditions, but it's great to have the option to work in both places!
