Montreal native Cristina Rosato has spent years honing her craft, and her dedication to performing is now paying off, as she continues her rise in Canada’s film and television industry. Cristina currently has a number of new, diverse and marking roles on the go. Among her many upcoming appearances is a role as Samantha Kaye on the popular CBC series “Republic of Doyle”, airing April 14th, 2013. The multi-talented, multilingual actor also plays Francesca on ABC’s dramatic series “Rookie Blue” (which also airs on Global TV in Canada). Her ability to speak several languages fluently helped her book the role of Francesca, which was rewritten to be an Italian-speaking character after Cristina auditioned for the role speaking in an Italian accent.
Cristina can also be seen alongside some of the country’s most notable performers on the hit Radio-Canada French TV series “Trauma”. The series, created and produced by Fabienne Larouche, is in its fourth season and as popular as ever with audiences and critics alike. The drama follows the lives of emergency room doctors—with Cristina among the ensemble cast, playing a controversial Italian neurosurgeon, Dr. Giulia Amaro.
Cristina next appears alongside David James Elliott and Julia Ormond in Reelz Channel’s “Exploding Sun”, as a woman who must bid farewell to her husband in space through Skype, while earth is in jeopardy of being destroyed by a meteor.
Cristina is most proud of her starring role in the bilingual horror film “Territories”. She played a writer forced to give up false information while being tortured as a hostage at Guantanamo. The film was shot in both French and English and challenged her as an actor both physically and emotionally, through long hours of shooting in frigid Montreal temperatures.
While she has already accomplished much as a young actor, Cristina still has high aspirations for her future in the industry. The versatile performer would like to act on the New York stage, as well as write, direct and host for “Saturday Night Live”.
