Sera-Lys McArthur

Sera-Lys McArthur is a mixed-race Canadian actress from Saskatchewan. She began acting at the age of 12 when she was cast in the CBC miniseries Revenge of the Land, directed by John N. Smith. She has pursued her career and acting training around the globe. She studied Musical Theatre at AMDA in New York, and then stayed in the Big Apple to gain experience as a fashion model.

In 2006 she relocated back to Canadian soil to live in Vancouver, where she was cast in another John N. Smith miniseries called The Englishman's Boy. She was honoured to be cast in this highly dramatic role based on the experience of her Nakota ancestors. She was also responsible for presenting the language for the first time on an indelible form of media such as film.

In 2008, Sera-Lys was awarded the Premier's One World Scholarship via Capilano University in BC and was funded to attend the MA in Acting programme at East 15 Acting School at the University of Essex in the UK. Graduating at the top of her class, Sera-Lys has since relocated to LA and most recently Toronto to continue her acting pursuits. She was thrilled to be cast in Hard Core Logo II (which was shown at this year's Toronto International Film Festival) and have the opportunity to work with acclaimed director Bruce McDonald.

Sera-Lys is very excited to be working with CBC once again on what is arguably one of the most exciting new series to premiere on Canadian television in many years; Arctic Air. Whether it's theatre, musicals, film, TV, commercials, print work, fashion shows or working on her own writing and creative performing projects, Sera-Lys is up for the challenge of gaining new experiences on her international road to success.
