With a broad history in film as an actress, a longstanding career as a professional dancer, while also working as an up-and-coming clothing designer and alternative model in her spare time, this flight-footed fashionista is surely no stranger to the spotlight. However, you can’t mistake her for just another pretty face – at only 21 years of age this young prodigy already has a steadfast conscience and sense of direction. Of Anishinabe lineage, Sarain is a passionate spokesperson for her aboriginal community North of Toronto and wears the beauty of her heritage with pride.
Sarain explains that, “through film and acting my goal is to tell the stories that allow us to relearn our self’s as aboriginal people.” Through her pursuit of recognition as a name in the film industry, Sarain hopes to open new doors and opportunities for Aboriginal youths. Already well on her way, Sarain has worked on several major projects already: she was cast as Sacheen Little Feather in "The Andy Warhol Interview Project" which debuted at the Vienna Film Festival in June 2007 and was involved in the ARG re-release of the CBS TV drama “Jericho”. Of course, she always has lots of new ideas on the drawing board and is currently refining several concepts for projects in the near future. Already in progress are various independent endeavours including the debut of her first play entitled “Ashes” which will appear at the Weesageechak Festival in Toronto this February.
Just as comfortable behind the scenes as in front of the lens, Sarain is also a distinguished fashion model. She can currently be seen on the front cover of this season’s issue of Redskin and Spirit magazines, and has also appeared in ImagoZine, Butterfly Unltd. from NYC and Grind magazine. Sarain has modelled in several Imago shows and also for designer Brandon R. Dwyer.
Sarain is strong and determined not only as an intellect; she has also been studying, practicing and performing as a professional ballet dancer for the past ten years. She has attended the Canadian Children's Dance Theatre Company, the Quinte Ballet School and the Alvin Ailey Bachelor of Fine Arts Program in New York City. She has performed at The Barrie Jazz And Blues Festival VIII, the 2002 and 2007 Aboriginal Achievement Awards, and two summers with the Ajkun Ballet Theatre Company in New York City. On and off the dance floor, this stellar entity of artistic expulsion is truly always on her toes.
Breaking ground for aboriginal people and for women, this charming and intent young lady will stop at nothing to make her voice heard. With poise and interminable dedication, she is a dilettante to be reckoned with.
