Rockland resident takes care of the most vulnerable; she’s a registered nurse at the Ottawa General Hospital. Yet the smiling woman also has somewhat of a second identity. When she’s not taking care of pa- tients in the recovery room, she pursues a career in acting which hasmade her travel

throughout the province and has enabled her to visit sides of her she didn’t know existed. But why would a career nurse suddenly decide to jump wholeheartedly into the world of cinema? “I remember watching movies as a child and wanting to be in them,” explainedMain- ville in her Rockland house, during one of her rare days off. “But as I grew up, I took the safe route and pursuedmy education, getting a nursing degree and becoming a nurse.” But along the years, Mainville became aware that she longed for something else. She wanted to be known for something other than being a nurse. Her exciting adventure into acting started only a couple of years ago. “I started by doing somemodelling,” she said, smiling. “During shoots, they ask you to show several differ- ent emotions. That’s where I met a casting director.” Her acting career snowballed from there. She quickly took part in some acting work- shops, where she said she met amazing teachers. “I learned a lot from them,” she explained. “They showedme to step out off my comfort zone.” Mainville, who admits to having been plagued by shyness, therefore had to open up and truly become one with the camera and script, something she has accomplished several times. Channeling her surroundings The Rockland woman’s dive into the world of acting didn’t initially transform her into a rising star overnight. “In the be- ginning, you have to take on several vol- unteering positions,” she admitted. “But to think that directors, who are creating their masterpieces, wanted me to take part in it was simply amazing.” In addition, Mainville stressed that an acting resume is quite different than a nor- mal one. “They don’t care if you worked

at McDonald’s or if you were a nurse,” she indicated. “They want to know in what you were and what kind of acting experience you possess. When I started, I had nothing.” She therefore had to take on several dif- ferent roles, the likes of whichmade her truly appreciate the overall atmosphere of acting. “I did several short films, a web series and even voice acting.” In order to push herself to her limit, Main- ville decided to create a list of goals. “My first one was to be in something relatively big,” she added. “I accomplished that with Past Redemption.” The web series filmed in Quebec has gar- nered quite some praise amongst viewers. Past Redemption is a character-driven series about survival in a small impoverished town, where the options are to be law abiding and live in poverty or be involved in petty crime where prospects improve dramatically. “I really had a fun time doing it,” the nurse confided. “It was my first taste of real acting.” The premier of the first series was show- cased at theMayfairTheater, to a huge crowd. Episodes are routinely released on the series’ website and the first episode of the second season is already in the works. “It’s going to be very interesting,” explainedMainville.
