About Tapestry Acting Studio

Characters and the actors that play them are complex and intricately woven, much like a tapestry. The actor's job is to recognize all that makes up a character and truthfully represent that. Tapestry Acting Studio aims to give actors the skills to be truthful, both to themselves and to the character, and to take what’s on the page and bring it to life.

And also, to have fun. Let’s play!

Meet Victoria

Victoria Maria is an actor, filmmaker and acting coach based in Toronto. Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Victoria moved to New York City at nineteen to study the Meisner technique at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre. After graduating from the esteemed program, she pursued her acting career in NYC, starring in features and shorts which were official selections at various festivals including Cannes Short Film Corner, SoHo International Film Festival and Calgary International Film Festival.

In 2015, Victoria relocated to Toronto and immersed herself in its creative community. She’s had principal roles in the films A Storybook Christmas, alongside fellow Canadian Ali Liebert, and Netflix’s Midnight at the Magnolia. Victoria also produced and starred in the short film March, written and directed by Emily Dickinson, which was an official selection at the 2020 Whistler Film Festival.

Amidst the pandemic, Victoria found a secondary passion in coaching fellow actors. Her teaching style is influenced by the Meisner technique and her ten-plus years in the industry. Victoria created Tapestry Acting Studio to expand her classes and create an inclusive, supportive and educational space for all those with an interest in acting.
