Canadian actress Larissa Laskin has spent most of her career bouncing around her native country's television industry. After making her television debut on the children's program "Shining Time Station," Laskin's first significant acclaim came for the 1993 World War II mini-series "Dieppe," playing a part for which she received the first of three nominations from the Geminis (Canada's equivalent of the Emmys). Breaking into film with a small role in the much-derided 1995 adaptation of "The Scarlet Letter," Lasin wouldn't receive her first regular leading television turn until 1999, when she appeared on 12 episodes of the short-lived urban drama "Deep In The City." Another role that went nowhere came in the 2002 series "Body & Soul," in which Laskin took the lead as Dr. Rachel Griffin, a spiritually-inclined physician determined to bring alternative medicine to Columbus, Ohio. After the program's nine episodes ended, Laskin continued appearing in television shows as a guest star, frequently in science-fiction programs like the aliens-vs.-humans syndicated show "Earth: Final Conflict" and the franchise reboot "Star Trek: Enterprise," as well as regularly collaborating with Canadian comedy legend Ken Finkleman on his shows. In addition to her acting training, Laskin also studied to be a ballerina at Toronto's National Ballet School.
