Brooke is an award winning actor who, when she was in her teens,
launched her career by working as a production assistant at the
Shaw Festival, often driving actors to and from Toronto.
She has an expansive career but I decided to focus our chat on her solo performance "Trudeau Stories."
She met Trudeau at the National Theatre School of Canada where she was studying acting.
They shared a dance at the school and their cheek to cheek moment sparked a relationship that lasted years. Brooke documented the relationship with Trudeau in a journal and in 2007 created the solo performance, "Trudeau Stories" based on her time with Trudeau.
We talk about her time with Trudeau and how she developed the solo show.
