A Day in the Life with Toronto Actor Denis Theriault

Bio by my good friend and actress, Katie Messina:
“Denis is a gentle kind spirit and that is not to say he doesn’t have a fiery, opinionated, hardworking side because boy does he ever. Denis’ depth is, simply, complex. He fights for the truth, is inspiring and pure joy. Being around him makes one feel invigorated and at ease. His sense of humour is off the charts. And don’t let me get started on his dance moves. Ask him, I’m sure he’d love to bust them out. Denis is a human I hope to have by my side for eternity.”
