Multitalented Stephanie Morgenstern began her career acting with a variety of films and TV series before broadening her scope to include writing and directing award-winning short films and co-creating the Canadian police drama "Flashpoint. " She started acting as a teen while continuing her schooling. Fluent in both French and English, she took roles for stage and screen in both languages, frequently in supporting parts. In the mid '90s she began providing the voice of Sailor Venus in the English dubbed version of the popular anime series "Sailor Moon," and she has done similar work for other animated shows, as well as the "Dino Crisis" video games. Morgenstern appeared in two grim dramas with the odd connection of vehicles being driven into bodies of water: Atom Egoyan's highly regarded "The Sweet Hereafter" and Denis Villeneuve's "Maelström." Morgenstern earned Genie Awards (Canadian equivalent of Academy Awards) for her short films "Curtains" and "Remembrance." With her husband, Mark Ellis, she created the well-received dramatic series "Flashpoint," about a S.W.A.T.-style tactical team that handles extreme situations.
