No stranger to television audiences, Mary Walsh may be best known for her work on “This Hour Has 22 Minutes”, CBC’s wildly popular take on current affairs. The series, which she also created, earned her many of her numerous Gemini awards and showcased her dynamic range of characters, including the flagrantly outspoken Marg Delahunty. Walsh wrote, produced and starred in the Gemini award winning “Hatching,Matching and Dispatching,” and was nominated for two Genies for her performances in feature films “Crackie” (Official selection at TIFF) and “New Waterford Girl.” Walsh’s recent credits include CBC’s “Republic of Doyle”, TMN's “Sensitve Skin,” and Global's “Rookie Blue.”Select feature film credits include “Mambo Italiano,” “The Divine Ryans” with Pete Postlethwaite, “Violet,” in which she played the title role, and most recently the “The Grand Seduction” (official selection at TIFF). Outside of the film, TV and theatre world, Mary is an outspoken advocate for mental health and addiction awareness. Among the many charities and organizations she supports are the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health in Ottawa, the CNIB, St. Joseph’s Hospital and CAMH. Among her many awards and doctorates, Mary is also the recipient of the Order of Canada and the Governor General’s Lifetime Achievement Award in the Performing Arts.
