Biography

One of Canada's most revered entertainers, Dorothée Berryman led a successful career in acting and music. Born on April 28, 1948 in Quebec, Canada, Berryman launched her career on the stage, making her debut in 1971 in George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" (1912). She appeared on "Nic et Pic" (Radio-Canada, 1971-77), but it was her role on the drama series "Des dames de coeur" (Radio-Canada, 1986-89) that launched her mainstream career. Berryman's first movie role was in the crime drama "La gammick" (1974), but it was her memorable performance as a betrayed wife in Denys Arcand's critically acclaimed "The Decline of the American Empire" (1986) that earned her outstanding critical reviews. Berryman reprised her role in Arcand's sequel "The Barbarian Invasions" (2003), which nabbed the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2004. No stranger to American audiences, Berryman appeared in made-for-TV biopics in 2000 - "The Audrey Hepburn Story" (ABC) and "Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis" (CBS). Aside from acting, Berryman established an equally successful music career. After developing a passion for jazz while traveling in New York in the 1990s, she released a couple of albums, including her self-titled debut in 2000. Between 2004 and 2011, Berryman hosted a weekly jazz program on Radio-Canada/Espace Musique, often performing on the show herself. In 2011, Berryman co-starred in the comedy "French Immersion," about a group of people - four Canadians and one American - who spend two weeks in a remote town in Northern Quebec.
