Rachel Colwell (O-Chi-Chak-Ko-Sipi First Nation) | Canada | 2018 | Webseries | 14+ (Strong Language)
Meet Rachel. She’s a 24-year-old aspiring actor and a waitress...and a single parent and an Indigenous woman. All she wants is a good life and she’s going to use everything she’s got to make it even if that means dealing with nitpicky bosses and maybe racists customers. Rachel is a very funny series about some not so funny topics.
Rachel Colwell won a Leo Award for Best Performance in a Youth Series for her first professional acting job, a series regular role on Renagadepress.com. Since then she has continued to train diligently as an actor and has had guest starring roles on shows such as Arctic Air and Skye and Chang. Rachel has been busy filming two TV series, Jamestown and Warrior. Rachel - which she wrote, developed and acts in - is inspired by her true to life adventures.
