Jude Beny (actra, caea)

Jude runs the gamut, from the quietly evil school nurse in Lucky McKee's The Woods to crazy mama Evelyn Kent in Richard Roy's Forbidden Secrets to the elegant Parisian traveller channeling James McAvoy and partnering with Jennifer Lawrence in X-Men: Days of Future Past. She played key roles in the popular television series: Regenisis II, Kojak , The Fifth Estate and Toi et Moi.

She is heard regularly on CBC radio, portraying Elsie Reford on Ideas and narrating short stories on Cinq À Six as well as working in radio drama. She also lends her voice to commercials and industrials including Air Canada (first-class international) for which she has won industry awards. She is a dialect specialist.

Classically trained in Canada and internationally she has been instrumental in the development of new Canadian drama working with Peter Hinton, Paula Danckert and Eda Holmes among others. Jude is thrilled to be working with her husband Gordon Masten and their Best Man, Ari Snyder on Counting The Ways. Look for her in the lead role of Roxanne in the new play The Blood Harmonic premiering in Montreal in April.
