Juno Rinaldi

The eldest of three children born to a composer/writer father and an early childhood educator mother, Juno Rinaldi grew up on the idyllic Saltspring Island, the largest of the Gulf Islands in BC.

An award-winning playwright and theatre actor, Rinaldi has collaborated as a writer and actor on countless theatre productions throughout Canada and is co-founder of the darkly comedic comedy troupe, Theatre Melee. She began performing at the age of six in National Film Board films and in local school productions. Fortunate enough to count Canadian filmmaker Anne Wheeler as a neighbour, Rinaldi had the opportunity to audition for a part in her film, The War Between Us while still in high school. After booking the lead and spending two months on location in New Denver, BC, Rinaldi knew she wanted to pursue a career as an actor and enrolled in the prestigious Theatre Training program Studio 58 in Vancouver and graduated with Honours.

Rinaldi has appeared in such television productions as Degrassi: The Next Generation, The Killing, Arrow, Supernatural, Fringe, Robson Arms, These Arms of Mine and Psych. Her feature film credits include, Life, Jennifer’s Body, The Tooth Fairy and The Linda McCartney Story. Rinaldi is currently set to release Elbow Grease, four webisodes she co-wrote and starred in.

Rinaldi can next be seen in the CBC web-series How To Buy a Baby, and the Lifetime movie Girl Underground.

She lives in Hamilton, Ontario with her husband and two sons.
