Bio

French-Canadian, Cochrane, Ontario native, Yanik Ethier studied theatre in Ottawa, and is currently acting, writing, and producing work in Montreal. An honored graduate of the Algonquin Theatre Program, Yanik further studied the Meisner technique with the late Jacqueline McClintock, and acting for film with Jock Macdonald at Carter Thor Studios East.

His most memorable on-stage roles are Mr. Hardlong in Timberlake Wertenbaker’s The Grace Of Mary Traverse, Phil in Neil Labute’s The Shape Of Things, and Sheriff Carroll in Jensen and Blank’s The Exonerated. He also wrote, produced and acted in two critically acclaimed one-man shows, I Wish I Was Freddy Dylan Etheridge and Serving Something.

In 2014, Yanik makes his television debut on Syfy’s Being Human and Investigation Discovery’s true crime series Fatal Vows. His work has also been featured in various short film festivals through Please, Breathe Lucy (28th Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Market, Toronto’s Wild Sound Festival, and Montreal’s Mascara and Popcorn Film Festival) and Der Untermensch (2013 Festival de Cannes’ Film Market and Short Film Corner, the Fantasia Film Festival, and the Toronto International Film Festival).

A founding member of the Third Eye Ensemble, a Montreal theatre company, Yanik is now its artistic director. The Ensemble’s mandate is three-tiered: to mirror humanity through socially relevant and thought-provoking performances; to introduce audiences to vibrant new voices in our local French and English artistic communities; and, to collaborate with passionate artists to create, develop and produce honest and meaningful art.

Integrity. Evolution. Harmony. As an actor, Yanik seeks evolution through each of his roles. As a storyteller, he delights in the perpetuation of knowledge. The perpetuation of knowledge is the only hand with which we can wield the greater sword of empathy and cleave our civilization of its ignorance and fear.
