While Amanda Tapping is primarily known for her roles in the series Stargate and Sanctuary, as well as her directing work since, most fans know that she started in theatre. Her first theatre play, after some school plays, was at The Village Playhouse, a community theatre in Toronto, where she played the role of Alais Capet in The Lion in Winter. Her father took her to the audition, thinking that she wouldn’t get the part, realize how harsh the industry is, and hence choose not to pursue acting. Amanda, however, got the part, and this was a definitive moment for her decision to become an actor. The Village Playhouse has now shared a lovely photo of her from that play.
Woah! Totally deep archives. I was 18yrs old. 🤗❤️ https://t.co/Uzi5eoyAr3
