What’s Buzzing in Show Biz? Actor Rukiya Bernard

Actor Rukiya Bernard is busier than ever with her acting career. Having recently appeared on the hit BBC America show Intruders, and currently working on the projects Sorority Murder, and The Silent One, she is soon to fill a lot more TV screens.

Earlier this year, Rukiya appeared on Adrian, and Hit & Run with Supporting Roles, and in The Returned with a recurring role.

Benard graduated from Ryerson University’s theatre program, and soon afterwards landed a support lead role in Ernest Dickerson’s Our America. Some of her other top roles include appearances on Primeval: New World, The Haunting Hour, Supernatural, and Stargate Universe among others.

Being a busy mom of two doesn’t stop Rukiya from juggling multiple projects at once. From Nov 19 – 29 she will be starting in the play  Good People, by David Lindsay-Abaire. The performance will be held in Studio1398 on Granville Island. For tickets visit
