She made her TV debut on CBC in Canada’s Smartest Person, and she is making her webseries debut in IRL: The Series, airing in 2016.

Roselyn is prepping for a summer of theatre. She’s playing Cleopatra! In a new comedy by Kyle McDonald, called Macbeth’s Head, Cleopatra teams up with Richard III to take revenge on Shakespeare for their tragic ends. It’s going to be hilarious! Come & see, July 5–15 in the Toronto Fringe Festival
Roselyn’s dream roles include Cleopatra in Shakespeare’s Antony & Cleopatra, Helena in All’s Well That Ends Well and Hermione in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child... obviously.
With Livia Berius, Roselyn is co-writing a script about the juggle that is life for a woman trying to succeed in acting and in law - at the same time. It’s a dramedy that digs into the misogyny and racial prejudices in professional settings in Toronto. Think “Insecure” meets “The Good Wife” meets “I don’t know how she does it”.
