Michelle Thrush

Last updated: April 10, 2024

Michelle Thrush has been involved in the arts as an actor, writer, director, and producer for more than thirty years professionally and is most well-known for her roles in film and television. If she is not on a stage or working on a film, you will likely find her working across the country with youth and children in Indigenous communities, utilizing the arts and storytelling as a force for healing.

A multi-award-winning actress who most recently received the Lieutenant Governor Distinguished Artist of Alberta Award, Michelle is thrilled to bring Inner Elder to the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin people and is thankful for the Elders of this territory who hold the stories here.

She is also very grateful to Lori Marchand (Managing Director of NAC Indigenous Theatre) and Kevin Loring (Artistic Director of NAC Indigenous Theatre) for believing in Inner Elder and for everything it took to bring our show here.

“My greatest achievement in this life is my two beautiful daughters, which I admit was a co-production...”
