Allegra Fulton is touted as "one of Canada's national treasures" (Now Magazine) with a career in acting that has taken her across Canada, into the United States and Europe. She has garnered numerous awards and extensive critical praise for her work in theatre and film and has also built a practice as a director.
See her this summer playing the coveted role of Amanda in Tennessee William's The Glass Menagerie at Canada's Shaw Festival and in the feature film Run This Town which premiered at this years SXSW Festival.
Upcoming work includes Between Riverside and Crazy at Coalmine Theatre and Sweat at Studio 180/Canadian Stage both in Toronto this Winter.
"Even performers who have just one scene make a powerful impression. (In terms of impact vs. screen time, Allegra Fulton's cameo as a fortune teller is right up there with Gloria Foster's only scene in the original "The Matrix"; she has the voice of a streetwise fairy godmother who always tells the hard truth). "
"Fulton’s portrait of Amanda is human to the core"
"Allegra Fulton gives a towering performance as Amanda...full of nuance, gentility, steely resolve and determination couched in velvet"
