Curiousity and her love for film and TV led Ms. Stewart to an open call for background performers at 16 years old. Working as a movie extra gave her valuable on set experience and knowledge. Her time off set was spent modeling, acting in student films, singing in her own indie band and pursuing her studies in Business Administration and later in Literature. In 1997, the former gymnast was given an opportunity to use her physical talent by Hollywood stunt coordinator Jeffrey J. Dashnaw on the series "Soldier of Fortune, Inc.". A combined lust for action and a want to communicate through such a powerful medium as film and TV led to more opportunities as a stunt double ("The Day After Tomorrow", "Helix") and acting work alongside Vanessa Williams and Wesley Snipes.
After a slew of acting classes with different teachers, Ms. Stewart has benefited greatly from her experience at Carter Thor East (now Straeon Acting Studios) (2006-2008). She has had the pleasure of working for numerous directors ex. Ron Underwood, Yves Simoneau, Roland Emmerich, Steven A. Adelson, Brad Turner, François Girard, Jim Kaufman, Kari Skogland, Christian Duguay, Robert Berlinger, Jean-Pierre Jeunet amongst others. Ms.Stewart enjoys writing, developing and directing her own documentary and live action short films/music videos. Her music video for her song, "Despite You" , was a Music Video Category Winner at the 2014 Original iPhone Film festival.
A multi-disciplinary artist, Ms. Stewart has a facility for live improv, stand-up comedy, drama and the stamina for the lengthy work hours required to complete a film project. She is a dedicated mother of one, determined professional and she is excited about what the future holds.
